REVIEWED: Ever After

Ever After by Kim Harrison. (Urban Fantasy novel, 2013).

Yep, here I am, as usual getting into an ongoing series long after its debut. In this case,  635 more words

REVIEWED: Bryant & May: Strange Tide

Bryant & May: Strange Tide by Christopher Fowler. (Detective/Mystery Novel, 2016).

The latest book in this long-running series finds the allegedly elite team known as the Peculiar Crimes Unit headed for disaster. 502 more words

REVIEWED: Death of a Ghost

Death of a Ghost by M.C. Beaton. (Mystery Novel, 2017).

REVIEWED: Norse Mythology

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman (Myth-Based Story Collection, 2017).

In his new book, the incomparable Neil Gaiman (a multiple award winner and best selling author in a variety of genres) faces the challenge of converting the often fragmentary surviving myths from the Viking Era into a series of connected short stories accessible to modern readers (rather than the more common and somewhat dry ‘scholarly’ translations that have come before). 553 more words

REVIEWED: I Loved Her In The Movies

I Loved Her in the Movies by Robert J. Wagner and Scott Eyman. (Show Business Memoir, 2016).

Now (as the Monty Python crew used to say) for something completely different! 313 more words

REVIEWED: Navigators of Dune

Navigators of Dune by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson. (SF Novel, 2016).

The latest in the seemingly endless series of sequels, prequels and spin-offs from the magnificent SF creation of Frank Herbert,  727 more words

REVIEWED: The Kindred of Darkness

The Kindred of Darkness by Barbara Hambly. (Historical Horror Novel, 2017).

A while ago I reviewed one of Hambly’s Benjamin January crime/adventure series set in the pre-Civil War deep south. 637 more words
