A new first for my blog...B.F. Späth reached out to me and sent me his book, THE SUN TEMPLE, and asked for me to review it. This is the result of that agreement and my review of Späth's trippy, dreamscape of a narrative follows. THE SUN TEMPLE follows a narrator who navigates the streets of … Continue reading Review: The Sun Temple
What a bittersweet read. Hughley holds nothing back in this witty, clear-cut take on the USA and our culture of racism. This book made me both chuckle and cringe as he unpacks numerous injustices and incidents that have taken place over most recent years, along with his own personal stories. This isn't a book for … Continue reading Review: How Not to Get Shot: And Other Advice From White People
I wanted to change it up slightly with this post and have something fun/themed for St. Patrick's day! But I can't go any further without saying...what a thrilling romp through pubs, mythology, and alleyways. NEON DRUID is such a fun, pulpy anthology of stories that embody Celtic fantasy and myth.

There are some stories I have read or heard of before and there are even some stories in here … Continue reading Review: How Long ‘Til Black Future Month?

This is the question that Adrian Tchaikovsky’s CHILDREN OF TIME attempts to answer, but while doing so, asks so many more questions along the way. When an ark ship, holding what remains of humanity, comes upon a long-forgotten project of Old Earth, a … Continue reading Review: Children of Time
Award season is here and I am expanding my review coverage to include the Nebulas this year. I really just enjoyed reading the Hugo finalists so much, that I had another awards list, so here we are! Also, this is my 70th post in the lifetime of my blog, which is crazy to think about. … Continue reading Nebula Finalists 2018: Short Fiction
It's been awhile since I couldn't put a sci-fi novella down and when I had to with this one, I did begrudgingly(darn kids!). I really could have read this in one sitting, because Watts just makes everything so tense and so utterly readable. We have our protagonist Sunday on a one way trip across the … Continue reading Review: The Freeze-Frame Revolution
