Willful Child by Steven Erikson (book review).

Steven Erikson is the author of the hugely popular series ‘The Malazan Book Of The Fallen’. ‘Willful Child’ could not be more different from his sweeping fantasy saga, however, which is why I chose to read it. I wanted to see what he’d do with some Science Fiction, particularly as the blurb promises he’ll be […]

Liesmith: Book 1 of The Wyrd by Alis Franklin (book review).

Sigmund Sussman is your stereotypical nerd. At twenty-two, he still lives at home. When not working tech-support, he plays games, handheld, console and MMOs. He has a Dungeons &Dragons group and the walls of his bedroom are papered with ‘Star Wars’ posters and pictures of dragons. He’s a bit plain, a bit overweight, wears glasses […]

New York ComicCon 2014 (convention review).

For the last eight years, I have failed in my primary mission at the New York Comic Con. I have not met Patrick Stewart or even breathed the same air as him. I have not met Greg Capullo, I couldn’t find Stephen Amell (I think I was there the wrong day) and I never get […]

Shovel Ready (Spademan #1) by Adam Sternbergh (book review).

Before dirty bombs turned the island of Manhattan into a ghost town, Spademan was a garbage man. After he lost his wife in the attack on Times Square, he turned to the escape of the limnosphere – a virtual reality that exceeds the functionality of the internet. To access the limnosphere, one requires special equipment. […]

Falling Sky by Rajan Khanna (book review).

It’s hard to read about a plague called the Bug when global viral catastrophe is a very real threat. This week saw the first case of Ebola in the United States. I live a couple thousand miles north of Dallas, but I’ve seen the movies and I’ve read the books. Apparently, I like scaring myself. […]

Rise Of The King (The Companion Codex II, The Legend of Drizzt #26) by R.A. Salvatore (book review).

Harking back to the ‘Transitions Trilogy’, ‘Rise Of The King’ tests the resolve of all who were involved in the Treaty of Garumn’s Gorge, which established peace between the citizens of the Marches and Kingdom of Many Arrows. Instrumental in the treaty, dwarven King Bruenor Battlehammer questioned his decision until the day he died. Reborn […]

Sorrow by John Lawson (book review).

I originally read and reviewed ‘Sorrow’ by John Lawson in 2009. Since then, the original publisher closed its doors, releasing rights back to the author. Together with Dragonwell Publishing, a new edition has been released. While the story remains the same, it has been re-edited and has a gorgeous new cover. Seeing as I enjoyed […]

 The Freezer (The Tanner Sequence book 2) by Timothy S. Johnston (book review).

From the official blurb for ‘The Freezer’ by Timothy S. Johnston: ‘CCF homicide investigator Kyle Tanner and his girlfriend are on their way to Pluto, en route to a new life together. Just one little death to check out in the asteroid belt first. But when you’re as tangled up in conspiracy as Tanner is, […]
