Review: All the Birds in the Sky

All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders My rating: 4 of 5 stars My rating: 3.8/5 This is an interesting and original story that falls into both the fantasy and science fiction genres, which is a bit unusual. Set mostly in the San Fransisco area, this book has a little bit of […]

Review: @War: The Rise of the Military-Internet Complex

@War: The Rise of the Military-Internet Complex by Shane Harris My rating: 4 of 5 stars My Rating 4/5 This was a very interesting read.

Review: Yendi

Yendi by Steven Brust My rating: 5 of 5 stars The first time I read this one, 20 or so years ago, I don’t think I truly realized how good a book this is. On second reading, it is absolutely fantastic. This book is also a reasonable choice for a starting point for the Vlad […]

Review: The Last Colony

The Last Colony by John Scalzi My rating: 5 of 5 stars Part 3 of the John Scalzi Old Man’s War series carries the torch quite well, delivering a good story, advancing/developing the characters we meet and ones we’ve come to enjoy in the previous 2 books. Very briefly, this is a continuation of the […]

Review: Cryptonomicon

Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson My rating: 5 of 5 stars Wow, what an enjoyable read! Neal Stephenson is one of those authors that until a couple of years ago had been notable because I had several of his books on my “to read” list (and on my shelves) who always seemed to get high praise, […]

Review: The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe by Douglas Adams My rating: 3 of 5 stars Rating: 3.5 stars For whatever reason, when I was a teenager, the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy books were always books that I had on my “to read” list but it’s only now that I’ve actually gotten around […]
