Nano-Bytes by Daniel C. Smith   (ebook review)

‘Nano-Bytes’ is a collection of short-shorts by Daniel C. Smith which I bought because I rather liked ‘3 Of A Perfekt Pear’, his collection of long short stories. First up is ‘Macro-Virus’, an amusing tale about a grad student on an exploratory hike in Chaco Canyon, an important native American historical site with two professors […]

Desperately Seeking Susan Foreman by Richard Kirby (book review).

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from Richard Kirby’s book, ‘Desperately Seeking Susan Foreman’ other than the fact that this was a revised edition of his attempt at getting actress Carole Ann Ford’s photo/autograph from ‘Doctor Who’, which is not really a spoiler as he shows it in the opening chapter. His main ambition […]

The Raven (Philip J. Riley’s Nightmare Series book 3) by Eunice Sudak (book review)

I chose ‘The Raven’ from BearManor Media’s ‘Philip J. Riley’s Nightmare Series’ books mainly because I was familiar with this 1963 film. Just in case you don’t know, its three stars were Vincent Price, Peter Lorre and Boris Karloff with Hazel Court, Olive Sturges and Jack Nicholson in supporting roles. It was one of the […]

Queen Of Shadows (Throne Of Glass book 4) by Sarah J Maas (book review).

‘Queen Of Shadows’ is book four in the ‘Throne Of Glass’ series by Sarah J Maas, I believe this will eventually be a seven book series with other added novellas. This is her series about Celaena Sardothien. In this book, Celaena Sardothien has returned to Rifthold but, this time as her own person, no longer […]

Obsidio – The Illuminae Files part 3 by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (book review).

‘Obsidio’ is the third and final book in ‘The Illuminae Files’. Please don’t read this review unless you’ve read Illuminae’ and ‘Gemina’, or there may be spoilers and most of it probably won’t make much sense to you neither. This time, along with some of the people from books one and two, we are following […]

3 Of A Perfekt Pear by Daniel C. Smith (ebook review).

This little book contains three stories by Daniel C. Smith, all of which were first published in ‘The Fifth Di…’. Nomadic Delirium Press has an enlightened policy of putting out these one author collections so that readers who like the writer can garner a bunch of his stuff cheap. I like Daniel C. Smith. As […]
