Vigilance by Robert Jackson Bennett

Vigilance by Robert Jackson Bennett
4.25

Robert Jackson Bennett is one of the authors whose writing, I eagerly look forward to whenever something new is announced. I was a bit skeptical about this title though, as this is a dystopic science fiction novella, which is not a genre I associate Bennett with. But he once again proved admirably why he is […]

Uncanny Collateral by Brian McClellan

Uncanny Collateral by Brian McClellan
4.25

Alek Fitz is a collection agent. Not the most pleasant or glamorous of professions. Especially when your clients are corporations controlled by supernatural creatures who aren’t interested in repossessing cars or houses. Fairies and devils have desires that go beyond money. Though neither cruel nor heartless, Alek has little sympathy for his targets. The way […]

Rex Draconis: Lords of the Dragon Moon by Richard A. Knaak

Rex Draconis: Lords of the Dragon Moon by Richard A. Knaak
4.25

While Narnia and Middle Earth were my gateways to fantasy, the Dragonlance world of Weis and Hickman made me a fantasy reader for life. Adding to the core storyline was Richard Knaak, with his Dragonlance standalones. The Legend of Huma and Kaz the Minotaur have sat on my various shelves and spent brief sojourns packed […]

The Only Harmless Great Thing by Brooke Bolander

The Only Harmless Great Thing by Brooke Bolander

It seems that I have a thing for sentient elephants. My first experience was the excellent Downward to the Earth by Robert Silverberg. But, The Only Harmless Great Thing is much more than just sentient elephants, it’s an emotional piece of work creating a quite plausible alternate reality that makes us think about the morality […]

Cabaret of Monsters by Tansy Rayner Roberts

Cabaret of Monsters by Tansy Rayner Roberts
4

I read this novella after trying out Kickstarter for the first time to back Tansy Rayner Roberts’ Creature Court bundle. I’m a sucker for an original setting, so when the world of the Creature Court was described as a Romanesque, Roaring 20s style city where shapeshifters engage in a nightly battle with the sky, I […]

The Heart of What Was Lost by Tad Williams

The Heart of What Was Lost by Tad Williams
5

Author’s Note: As we prepare for the imminent release of The Witchwood Crown, we now look at The Heart of What Was Lost, Tad Williams’ “bridge” novella. This review is spoiler-free in the sense that I don’t spoil the novella. However, the premise of the novella itself necessarily spoils certain aspects of Memory, Sorrow and […]

Six-Gun Snow White by Catherynne M. Valente

Six-Gun Snow White by Catherynne M. Valente
5

Simply put, I loved Six-Gun Snow White. Although many have adapted fairy tales across a variety of media, very few have done it this well. This isn’t a simple retelling or putting an old tale in new set dressing; Catherynne M. Valente transforms the story of Snow White and tells it beautifully, painfully well. She […]
