So, I realize I've been silent for quite a while. Well, I mean not really if you check out my Twitter. I haven't posted any book reviews since February and not even a single writing/reading update since then either. I wanna talk about that and what I hope to do for the future of my … Continue reading Update: 2020 – Relaunch?
It is easier to imagine an end to the world than an end to capitalism. I couldn't stay away from a book titled, CAPITALIST REALMISM: IS THERE NO ALTERNATIVE? Give whoever came up with that title a medal, maybe that was even Fisher himself. Regardless, this is a brief, but piercing examination of post-modern thinking surrounding our economic and cross cultural … Continue reading Review: Capitalist Realism
DARKWEIRD by Matthew Davis, does everything a second book should do: heartbreak, raises the stakes to ridiculous degrees, and more inter-dimensional hi-jinks. Davis manages to do that and so much more in his second installment of the GREY DAYS series.

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
What if the planet you are attempting to colonize is already occupied? 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
What a strange and wild ride. This was a really great read and anyone looking for a more "biotech" sort of dystopia, this has to be your first pick. Anyone willing to tolerate a bit of weird in the mix of their fiction, then you will be in good hands here, then again has Vandermeer … Continue reading Review: Borne
