A Review of Washington’s Dirigible

Washington's Dirigible by John Barnes My rating: 4 of 5 stars Odd book. Sequel to Patton’s Spaceship, which I just recently reviewed and gave four stars to. I thought it was a pretty solid book and looked forward to this one. This one wasn’t bad, necessarily, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as the …

My Fifth WordPress Anniversary

WordPress was kind enough to notify me a few days ago, on the 20th, that it was my my fifth anniversary with them, blogging away the whole time. It's hard to believe. I had come over from Xanga, a blogging site I had been on since 2004 and one I loved desperately. It's just that …

A Review of For Those Who Fell

For Those Who Fell by William C. Dietz My rating: 2 of 5 stars I actually read 300 pages of this book, quite an investment in time, before giving up in disgust. The story itself wasn’t that bad. Humanity in a war against evil bugs, losing even, trying to get allies, both of them, playing …

A Review of Patton’s Spaceship

Patton's Spaceship by John Barnes My rating: 4 of 5 stars I like most John Barnes novels. Patton’s Spaceship is no exception. It’s got an interesting premise that has endless possibilities and I can definitely see the potential for sequels, of which there is at least one that I know of. I know because I …

A Review of Wasteland of Flint

Wasteland of Flint by Thomas Harlan My rating: 5 of 5 stars I loved this book! I thought it was excellent, especially for the first book in a trilogy.

A Review of Nemesis

Nemesis by Isaac Asimov My rating: 2 of 5 stars This is one of Asimov’s later works, perhaps his last work, I can’t recall. Much of it is pretty interesting, but it has its weaknesses as well. To me, that sentence sums up Asimov as a writer and his career as well. At times brilliant, …

A Review of Califia’s Daughters

Califia's Daughters by Leigh Richards My rating: 5 of 5 stars Califia’s Daughters is one of the most unique, inventive, thought provoking, dark, disturbing, pseudo-violent, feminist-based, post-apocalyptic/dystopian novels I have read in a long time, if ever. I thoroughly enjoyed it and came away impressed with the book and author. What a work of art! …
