So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson

I think I am funny. I am fairly certain that a handful of people think I am funny. I know that I have occasionally thrown something out onto Twitter that has garnered a few laughs. I also know that I have had jokes fall like weighted anvils to the bottom… Read the Rest »

Off To WonderCon

Why yes, I am going to WonderCon this weekend. While I am looking forward to going to panels, walking the floor, sneaking off to Disneyland, seeing all the costumes, and tons of other fun things – this year’s WonderCon is going to be all about the visiting. This is going… Read the Rest »

Necessary Evil by Ian Tregillis

Book three of the Milkweed Triptych (Bitter Seed and The Coldest War being book one and two) starts off with a bang. Takes a sharp left turn and then drives a spike right through your brain. This may be one of my favorite trilogies I have read in the last… Read the Rest »

When Good Series Go Bad

There is nothing better than a great book. Dollar for dollar one of the best entertainment values out there. They engage your imagination. Transport you to far off places. Allow you to meet characters you may never have met in your life. The extension of a great book is when… Read the Rest »

Kindness Goes Unpunished by Craig Johnson

The subtitle of this book should have been “Longmire Goes to Philadelphia”. I want to start off by saying I enjoyed this book. This is important for me to get across immediately. Johnson is a very good writer with an incredible knack for dialogue and creating memorable characters. I finished… Read the Rest »

Harrison Squared by Daryl Gregory

There is not enough time in the day to work and read all the books I have waiting for me. I have been wanting to read Daryl Gregory for some time but just have never quite gotten to him (despite the fact that I own two of his books which… Read the Rest »

The Secret Place by Tana French

My brain often wrestles with the wonder of letters. How twenty-six letters arrange into words. Turn into paragraphs. Fill up pages. Occupy our brain. How these letters turn into wonder. How the magicians who wield them can make them dance and weave. Do their bidding and inject into us all… Read the Rest »

The Running Man Strikes Again

Now anyone who knows me is not going to be shocked by this next statement. I am not entirely sure that I am right in the head. I know, you are probably saying, “Christopher, this is simply not news to us.” Okay, no one is probably saying that but you… Read the Rest »

California Bones by Greg van Eekhout

I should buy myself a rubber stamp with the word sucker on it. This way when I am looking at new books and say the words, urban fantasy, heist, alternate history, genre blending, fantasy, I can just stamp my head sucker and buy it. I don’t even really know how… Read the Rest »

GOODBYE SIR TERRY PRATCHETT

I have a confession to make. When I read The Color of Magic the first time way back in the mid-1980’s, I didn’t like it. I bought it from the Science Fiction Book Club and read it in one day. I remember being mildly amused but the teenager me didn’t… Read the Rest »
