A Review of The Game

The Game by Ken Dryden My rating: 1 of 5 stars Boy, I don’t get it. I really don’t. I’m sure I’ll take some criticism for saying this, but I just don’t understand why Ken Dryden’s The Game is considered by most to be the best hockey book ever written and by Sports Illustrated to …

A Review of The End of Eternity

The End of Eternity by Isaac Asimov My rating: 3 of 5 stars I’m just going to say it: aside from a few select novels and stories, Asimov annoys the hell out of me and is, I think, one of science fiction’s most overrated authors ever. There! Start stoning me now. I’m prepared. I know …

A Review of Better To Beg Forgiveness

Better to Beg Forgiveness by Michael Z. Williamson My rating: 1 of 5 stars Better To Beg Forgiveness is a mess because the author is a loser. Not only a bad writer with suspect military credentials, but a hate-filled agenda where everyone is to be mistrusted, from the UN to the military chain of command …

A Review of Brother Number One

Brother Number One: A Political Biography of Pol Pot by David P. Chandler My rating: 3 of 5 stars The first “review” I read when I came across reviews for Brother Number One was one by “Annie,” which stated, “More objective, non-sensational and honest than than ‘Pol Pot: Anatomy of a Nightmare’.” Funny, having finished …

Chris Bunch's The Gangster Conspiracy: A Star Risk, Ltd., Novel by Steve Perry My rating: 4 of 5 stars Chris Bunch’s Star Risk, Ltd mercenary team is back and all I can say is, Thank God! After Bunch died in 2005 after publishing his fourth and presumably final Star Risk novel, it was a tough …

A Review of The Stars, Like Dust

The Stars, Like Dust by Isaac Asimov My rating: 2 of 5 stars I’ve been saying for a long time that I don’t understand why Asimov deserves his gigantic reputation. If one dares make such a comment publicly, they are practically beaten to a pulp by his legions of fans. Don’t get me wrong – …

CT Myleogram and Emergency Procedure

I’ve had a rough time of it lately, especially the past few days. A couple of weeks ago, I somehow injured my back. It locked up and I had incredible back pain to go along with my very severe head pain. I went to my orthopedist, had a lot of x-rays taken, was told I …

A Review of Willie Stargell: A Life in Baseball

Willie Stargell: A Life in Baseball by Frank Garland My rating: 5 of 5 stars I’ve got to be honest. When I was a kid, Willie Stargell was my favorite baseball player. Actually, he has been my whole life. But see, he was my favorite player to see in person! I lived in the Pittsburgh …
