Review: Transcendental by James Gunn @ Infinispace.net

James Gunn was never in my wheelhouse.  To be honest I’d never heard of him until sometime within the last year.  Which is odd since he is a SFWA Grand Master, and only thirty authors have been given that honor in the past forty years, and there are only ten living members of the Grand Ma…

Broken Worlds by Daniel Tyka @ Infinispace.net

Dogs didn’t live long in the Tangle, the Spire didn’t allow it.  They were a “burden” on the system.  But Crab had somehow defied the odds, somehow avoided the culling, and thrived in the shadows.  Ophelia looked down at her adopted, yet wholly independent, companion and s…

Review: Marsbound Trilogy by Joe Haldeman @ Infinispace.net

 
Joe Haldeman is one of my favorite and most read authors.  The first book of his that I read was There Is No Darkness, a coming of age military SF novel penned with his older brother Jack C. Haldeman II.  I read Darkness sometime around 1984 . . . 30 years ago!  And of…

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

(No spoilers are revealed in this review.)   I rarely give works of fiction five star reviews.  To earn such, a book needs to go far beyond telling me a good story, well past regaling me with amazing concepts, and above and beyond populating it with living characters.  A five star w…
