Book Review: King's Ransom by Ed McBain

I decided it was time to return to the 87th Precinct and this proved to be another entertaining crime thriller.

It starts slow with some boardroom politics involving businessman Douglas King. 213 more words


Book Review: Ex-Isle by Peter Clines 

Clines’ hugely entertaining superheroes vs zombies series continues here. The superheroes of Los Angeles continue to protect their survivors and Zzap is checking in on survivors when he finds a collection of ships forming into a man made island in the Pacific. 222 more words


The Colonist - a short story review

I love short stories. The right author can immerse me in a strong, vibrant world, capture my imagination and challenge my thoughts. So it was a pleasure to learn of Galley Beggar’s Singles. 85 more words

Book Review: The Siege of the Supers by Logan Rutherford

Having quite enjoyed the first book in Rutherford’s “first superhero” series I thought I’d check out the sequel. It picks up after Tempest, our young hero was left injured and stranded on the moon having fought the villainous Richter. 212 more words


Book Review: The Phoenix on the Sword by Robert E. Howard

I first got introduced to Conan the Cimmerian via the cheesy 90s cartoon and later the awesome Arnie movie, and it’s disappointing sequel. I’ve read a few of the comics and even watched the remake and enjoyed that. 326 more words


Book Review: Ex-Purgatory by Peter Clines

Peter Clines’ superheroes vs zombies series goes from strength to strength, with this, the fourth installment seeing him go in an interesting and clever new direction. 315 more words


Book Review: Gunthar and the Devil From Beyond by Steve Dilks

This is the third of Gunthar’s adventures I’ve read and while it’s still got flaws, Dilks appears to be developing as a writer. Here the sword wielding hero finds himself in a foreign kingdom where the King has fallen under the influence of a mysterious astronomer and a dancing girl at court is tormented by visions of a demon. 198 more words
