Medieval Romance

REVIEWED: The Wangs Vs. The World

The Wangs vs. The World by Jade Chang (Satirical Novel, 2016).

A satire on family conflict and the materialistic side of the American Dream, this good first novel is about a Chinese-American family dealing with a sudden fall from economic grace, courtesy the Great Recession, circa 2008. 615 more words

REVIEWED: Razor Girl

Razor Girl by Carl Hiaasen. (Humorous/Satirical Mystery Novel, 2016)

Carl Hiaasen is quite possibly the funniest writer in the US today. His fractured fairy tales paint a vivid and often laugh-out-loud portrait of modern life and crime in America as a whole, with a particular focus on his home ground of southern Florida. 486 more words

REVIEWED: Sneaky Pie For President

Sneaky Pie For President by Rita Mae Brown & Sneaky Pie Brown. (Satirical/Fantasy/Humor Novel, 2012).

Tired of “politics as usual” and–in particular–this year’s mega-toxic Presidential campaign?  551 more words

The Last Days of New Paris by China Mieville (Surreal/SF novella, 2016).

This novella is a masterful, one-of-a-kind blending of such unlikely elements as the surreal movement, semi-magical technology, the Nazi fascination with the occult and good old World War Two spy intrigue. 374 more words


Break No Bones by Kathy Reichs (Mystery novel, 2006).

Over the years I enjoyed many episodes of the TV series Bones, featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. 341 more words
