My Top Ten Tabletop Board Games

I have decided to start reviewing tabletop board games. I have been running an after school board game club for almost three years. This last week I ran my first successful all day tabletop day at our local community center and had a great turnout. Over the last few years… Read the Rest »

Reading Is My Jam

Summer is here and I needed some time to reset my brain. I have been in a bad place for a long time now. I know a lot of the frustration I feel is because my knee is not healing as fast as my brain wants it to. I miss… Read the Rest »

Nemesis Games by James S.A. Corey

It isn’t always easy reviewing a fifth novel in a series. By now most people who are reading this series don’t need to be convinced to keep reading it. They need only one thing. The confirmation that the series is still great and heading in the right direction. I can… Read the Rest »

Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone

It is really hard to do something completely fresh and original in fantasy for me these days. I have been reading fantasy for a long time. I read a lot of books. So when something jumps out at me as different I tend to take notice. Three Parts Dead is… Read the Rest »

The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi

The Water Knife is an interesting book. In part because many of the horrific events that occur because of the mega drought in the story don’t seem that far fetched. This book is rooted firmly in the pit of reality. The reality that humanity can prove that it sucks in… Read the Rest »

A Crown for Cold Silver by Alex Marshall

I like the sub-genre of grimdark fantasy. Right now I don’t think anyone is doing a better job of it than Joe Abercrombie. I had heard a lot of early positive things about A Crown for Cold Silver. I was looking forward to getting my hands on it and seeing… Read the Rest »

Robert B. Parker’s Kickback by Ace Atkins

Anyone who knows me, knows how important Robert B. Parker was to my reading life. The Spenser novels made me a mystery reader. More importantly, they showed me what kind of mysteries I liked. I liked characters. I liked people that were flawed. I liked stories that showed real people,… Read the Rest »

Pacific Fire by Greg van Eekhout

I was a big fan of California Bones by Greg van Eekhout. I like when books bring something new and interesting to the fantasy world and California Bones had that by the bucket loads. The magic system of consuming bones (and other body parts) to draw power is still fascinating…. Read the Rest »
