Book Review: The Red Knight

Book Review: The Red Knight

by So, I know I’m going against the overall grain on this one, but this was only okay. An alternate medieval Europe with an intrusive “wild” and variants on a lot of different European creatures and fey. Mix in some magic and religion that shows some similarities to what we have and most of whose …

New Genre TV for Fall 2017

New Genre TV for Fall 2017

by I don’t have cable anymore, haven’t for probably five or six years now, so I rely on internet news, network streaming, and Netflix for my increasingly rare TV fixes. And, much like re-reading, I don’t do a lot of re-watching. I want more stories, new ones, and not just repackages of things I’ve already …

Book Review: Star Trek Movie Memories

Book Review: Star Trek Movie Memories

by Having read Star Trek Memories, I almost immediately moved to its sequel, published the following year, which I suddenly realized was more than twenty years in the past.

I’m trying to broaden things out again, but I thought I might explain something behind the book reviews, at least. You …

Book Review: The Shepherd’s Crown

by The last Discworld novel and the first of the Tiffany Aching stories I truly loved. The previous ones were fun in their way, progressing from a decent read to true enjoyment, but none come anywhere near this tale. There may be emotional reasons for that other than just the story itself. Of course, I’ve …

Book Review: Homo Deus

Book Review: Homo Deus

by I read Mr. Harari’s previous book, Sapiens, a couple of years ago. In spite of the title similarity, this is not the same kind of book, except where it is. The book looks at potential answers for two significant questions. What have been the major feats and accomplishments of our species in the past? …

Book Review: The Aleph and Other Stories

Book Review: The Aleph and Other Stories

by This is a strange collection of strange stories. Before now, I wasn’t familiar with Mr. Borges’ work, and I’m still not sure I am, especially since he appears to have been fairly prolific from what I’ve read about him since finishing this. Not every story in this collection comes under the headings of science …
