Monthly Short Stories Winner: Alien or Eldritch Artifact

Monthly Short Stories Winner: Alien or Eldritch Artifact 

A massive artifact appears all of a sudden and (violently) disrupts the everyday life (of a tribe, a city, a country, the world). It can either be an alien artifact (science fiction) or an eldritch artifact (fantasy). This month, we wanted our entrants to think big. Something huge happens and humanity (or whoever else) barely […]

The Sons of Heaven by Kage Baker

The Sons of Heaven by Kage Baker
4.5

Whew. Eight books and several hundred years later (or several hundred thousand years, depending on whether you’re counting from the Spanish Inquisition or Options Research and Back Way Back… time travel is a rather messy business to write about), here we are. 2355. The Silence. All the pieces are going to come together, and after […]

The Machine’s Child by Kage Baker

The Machine’s Child by Kage Baker
4

I have some very mixed feelings about The Machine’s Child. On the one hand, I think I will always love Kage Baker’s work. The future she paints is intricate and engaging, and the visions of the past are playful without being mocking. This next installment in the Company series propels us further still to 2355 […]

We’re shot into the future. Life has taken an unexpected turn of events. Our space explorations have not gone as planned. As the human race has spread beyond Earth, we’ve caught the attention of an alien race, the Derithe, who have engineered a disease specifically to target males on colonised planets. Faced with the destruction […]

Reincarnation Blues by Michael Poore

Reincarnation Blues by Michael Poore
5

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. In this case, I was handed a copy of Reincarnation Blues by Michael Poore himself during Book Con in New York City. I wasn’t initially stoked. The cover […]

Today I believe we shall let said author, and his extensive catalog of works, speak for themselves. James Lovegrove is the author of over 50 acclaimed novels and books for […]

The Children of the Company by Kage Baker

The Children of the Company by Kage Baker
5

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 […]
