New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson

I had, and still have, very mixed feelings about New York 2140. I suspected going in that I would not be dealing with a traditional narrative, and I was not disappointed from that point of view. This is the story of a group of individuals who are living in New York in the eponymous year,... Read More »

Star Wars: Empire’s End by Chuck Wendig

I’m not going to lie, this book left me wanting more. And not always in a good way either. Empire’s End is the third book in a sort of literary game of join the dots by Chuck Wendig which seeks to explain some of the events which took place between the end of Return of the... Read More »

From Ice to Ashes by Rhett C Bruno

From Ice to Ashes is the follow up to Titanborn, which I reviewed last year, and is a standalone novel set in the same universe. I really enjoyed the dark and gritty science fiction that novel brought with it, and was hoping for more of the same with From Ice to Ashes. I think this... Read More »

Light Shaper by Albert Nothlit

Light Shaper by Albert NothlitLight Shaper is part post-apocalyptic story, but mostly it is a slightly off the wall cyberpunk tale cum gay romance. This book takes up well after the great apocalypse has happened, when most of the world’s population seems to be happily existing in digital utopia, which doesn’t seem to be very apocalyptic at all. The... Read More »

In the Blackness of Space by Robert Kuntz

In the Blackness of Space by Robert KuntzTitle: In the Blackness of Space by Robert Kuntz Publisher: Harbourlight Books Available: Now Format: ebook In the Blackness of Space is a quasi-hard science fiction novel with a hefty sting in the tail.

Quantum Tangle by Chris Reher

Quantum Tangle by Chris ReherPublisher: Chris Reher Published: 2014 Pages: 235 What would you do if you emerged from sub-space (hyperspace for us Star Wars junkies) to find that an alien entity had suddenly set up shop inside your head, and was not in a hurry to get out of there? Apparently, if you’re the main character in Chris... Read More »

Titanborn by Rhett C Bruno

Titanborn by Rhett C BrunoTitanborn is a sci fi novel in the vein of Phillip K Dick’s work, with gritty action scenes, and delicious moral quandaries. The main character is a collector – a fixer of sorts – who is paired up with a more straight-laced, logic driven partner to find the truth behind a group of extremists on... Read More »

Independence Day – Crucible by Greg Keyes

Independence Day – Crucible by Greg KeyesAs movie tie-ins go, this was actually pretty good. I had seen some pretty awful reviews of the Independence Day movie sequel, and I thought I would give this book a whirl, as it is set between the two movies, and covers most of the time period between them. Having seen the second movie after... Read More »

Grey Ronin by Matthew S Cox

Grey Ronin by Matthew S CoxWhen I received this book, I was not aware that it was the third book in a trilogy, and have not read the others in the series. With that said, I don’t think that they were required reading to be able to appreciate, and understand Grey Ronin. Grey Ronin presents an interesting world, where the... Read More »
