Books I Love: Starship’s Mage by Glynn Stewart

Books I Love: Starship’s Mage by Glynn Stewart

Since this is sort of a review, I suppose it’s only right to disclose that Glynn Stewart was kind enough to “blurb” ReCoil. Of course, my love of the Starship Mage series predates my completion of the that particular manuscript, but the internet is a great place to err on the side of caution. On to the review(ish)… The publishing industry, like most media, is […]

Books I Love: Odds Against by Dick Francis

Books I Love: Odds Against by Dick Francis

In something of a departure from my normal fare – that being Fantasy and Science Fiction – today’s “Books I Love” goes into the world of mystery. But not just any mystery – Dick Francis writes mysterious set against the backdrop of English horse racing. I know… how does someone who loves fantasy and sci-fi find themselves immersed in something that borders on a cozy […]

Books I Love: Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein

Books I Love: Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein

One of the first (and in my opinion still one of the best) examples of the military sci-fi genre, Starship Troopers pits the Mobile Infantry against the Bugs in the First Interstellar War. If you’ve seen the movie… well, to be honest, I enjoyed the movie (guilty pleasure) but it went more for an Aliens vibe than what the actual book did. But don’t let […]

Books I Love: On Basilisk Station by David Weber

Books I Love: On Basilisk Station by David Weber

Military sci-fi has always been one of my favorite genres. There’s probably a direct relation to the fact that I grew up in a military family and spent the first twenty or so years on this planet living on military bases across the world. I “grew up Army” as it were, and getting to be up close and personal to tanks, artillery pieces, helicopters and […]

Books I Love: Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb

Books I Love: Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb

Magic, dragons, swordplay, bastard princes, ancient evils, and, of course, assassins – Robin Hobb’s Farseer Trilogy has all of the elements of classic fantasy. That alone would be enough to make me love this series, but there’s so much more to these books. They tell the story of a bastard prince, raised in the shadows to be a weapon for the king – a spy […]

Books I Love: Patient Zero by Jonathan Maberry

Books I Love: Patient Zero by Jonathan Maberry

I don’t know what could possibly have Patient Zero on my mind these days… strange, eh? But viruses aside, Maberry’s first Joe Ledger novel is a wild ride. Ledger is a Baltimore cop going about his normal life when he gets pulled off the street by the feds. They take him to what has to be one of the strangest job interviews in fiction, where […]

Books I Love: The Star of the Guardians by Margaret Weis

Books I Love: The Star of the Guardians by Margaret Weis

Installment two of “Books I Love” is another throwback, one that helped cement my love for all things sci-fi and opened my eyes to the idea that you can take any idea, any story, and make it your own. The Star of the Guardians is a three (or four, depending on how you look at it) book series by Margaret Weis. It is, in my […]

Books I Love: The Parafaith War, L.E. Modesitt, Jr.

I really, really need to post here more often, so in that spirit, I’m going to start doing a kinda/sorta book review thing. Only, authors really shouldn’t do book reviews. We have a better grasp than most what criticism can look like and know that no matter how well-meaning (and let’s be honest, some isn’t) it can still suck. So, rather than criticize, I’m going […]

Release Day!

Release Day!

Well the day has come (and gone). It snuck up on me. One minute, I had a book coming out and then, poof, Happy Book Birthday to Re-Coil. I did the author thing and rushed out to the nearest bookstore to see if I could find it “in the wild.” And lo and behold, here it is in all its glory at the local Barnes […]
