Book Update: Ascending Darkness

There is just something about an epic fantasy that you feel as though you just might want to believe somehow exists. My first experience of this was, of course, the first time I read the Lord of the Rings so many years ago. I think that may have contributed to why I just like a…

Book Update: Wet Work

Every now and then while looking through the sci-fi/fantasy listings something will jump out at me. There are just so many titles out there that it can be a little daunting so as of late I only look a couple of times a week. As it is I’ve got plenty of novels to choose from…

Book Update: Through the Wildwood

Here it is nearing the end of February and I have finally begun to actually make progress on the backlog of books. With the last book post I finished up the titles that were read last month. Okay, I know it’s kind of sad that things got that far behind and all. It could be…

Book Update: Siege of Titan

What could be better to start off the year with than space marines, bloody battles, and far too much coffee? Not much. Maybe just more coffee so that I can stay up longer and keep reading. Oh, right about that – I probably already had more than I should have already today in addition to…

Book Update: The Raid

One of the things we imagine often is what the world would be like in the future whether it is space travel, dystopian worlds and/or the zombie infested post-apocalypse. personally, I have thought about both and usually it just ends up very strange which is why I’ll likely never write stories about zombies. They would…

Book Update: Farside

I read this book after chatting with a co-worker of mine whom mentioned having liked the author Ben Bova. Upon picking up Farside I wasn’t aware until most of the way through it that it was part of a larger series called The Grand Tour. Despite this book being the¬†ninth¬†book in the series it didn’t…

Book Update BZRK Origins

I have to admit I was drawn into reading this book mostly due to its unusual title. I had to check it out and see what it was about. I had heard of the author Michael Grant and his series called Gone even though I hadn’t pulled the trigger and read any of the books….

Book Update: Mass Effect: Revelation

One of the things I have become more aware of literary speaking is video game tie-in novels. Sure we all know that the big ones all belong to the big kid on the block; D&D’s Neverwinter. I tied to read those having enjoyed novels by Salvatore in the past, but it just wasn’t my cup…

Book Update – Re/Genesis

Here were another week gone by and heading into another month. I didn’t get nearly as much reading in last month as I had hoped to, but the books and short stories that I did get through were fun. This was the final short story by G.S. Jennsen related to which I didn’t realize until…

Book Update – Dragon Bones and Tombstones

One of the best things about having a day off now and then is having some free time to do things you enjoy. Am I right or am I right. I think you would agree with that whole heartedly. Yesterday was perhaps the nicest day off I’ve had in a while. No where I had…
