Brian Rathbone Interview 

Born on a farm in New Jersey, International bestselling fantasy author, Brian Rathbone, proclaims himself to be a bit odd.

Scylla and Charybdis by Lindsey Duncan

Scylla and Charybdis by Lindsey Duncan 

We’re shot into the future. Life has taken an unexpected turn of events. Our space explorations have not gone as planned.

Darkstorm by M. L. Spencer

Darkstorm by M. L. Spencer 

My early impression of Darkstorm, the prequel to the Rhenwars Saga series by M. L. Spencer, was that everyone was a magic user; and that in contradiction to the adage, An armed society is a polite society, this dark fantasy’s society of mages was far from polite. About halfway through, I realized that not everyone […]

Reincarnation Blues by Michael Poore

Reincarnation Blues by Michael Poore 

People acquire books in all kinds of ways. Book boxes mail out a semi-random selection. Friends and relatives gift books we may or may not really enjoy.

The Children of the Company by Kage Baker

The Children of the Company by Kage Baker 

Oh. My. God. Those are just about the only words I can think to describe my reaction to reading The Children of the Company. While I don’t know that I’d call the book a break from the main narrative (in large part because I didn’t really think I needed a break and am eager to […]
