Book Review: Senlin Ascends by Josiah Bancroft

This is, by far(!), the most original story I've read in ages. It's amazing - so brilliantly written, so unique - it's The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy meets a steampunk version of The Hobbit.

Book Review: Doctor Sleep by Stephen King

BETTER THAN THE SHINING! I finally get it. I went in completely blind with this. Hadn't heard a thing, other than that it was the follow-up to The Shining.

I really like King's writing style for this. It's a much shorter book than IT which I recently read, and feels more akin to The Dark... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Fate Unknown by Michelle Burden

The premise is simple: psychic woman helps police detective solve crime. It sounds a bit stereotypical when I put it like that, but the way it's executed is fascinating. Ann Marcus is our main character. She wasn't born with that last name, that was one she took as she got older. She took it after... Continue Reading →
