This is a read for thoseUtopia experiment explores the impact that trans-humanism could make upon our world under the right (or wrong) circumstances. This is a read for those who like to envision what the future might hold. It's for those who understand the unlimited possibilities in the combination of technological and human interaction.
The suspense and action will carry you through to the end. Not much of this is far fetched. I have a friend whose job is classified. He has not told me details but said that the technology we now have at our disposal is only kept from the battlefield because we have not yet explored and come to terms with the moral questions involved in its use. This book will raise some of those questions in your mind.
I highly recommend it to my friends and readers....more
Writing a Novel with Scrivener delivers what it promises. Hewson assumes you know how to write a novel. He makes it clear that this book is not aboutWriting a Novel with Scrivener delivers what it promises. Hewson assumes you know how to write a novel. He makes it clear that this book is not about the craft. He also assumes that you have Scrivener on your computer and that you know how to navigate and are familiar with the program to some degree. What he does do is give you the practical tips and insights that will help novelists make the best use of Scrivener.
Because it has an older copyright, I'd like to see Hewson revise the book to include features that are now in the Windows version. If I were reading a print version, I might not expect that. But because it's an eBook (mine is on Kindle), I'd like to see him provide extra value to his readers and send an update to Amazon Kindle Publishing for us. Maybe he'll see this review, and grant us a boon--who knows. He obviously is thinking about us, or he wouldn't have written the book in the first place.
I recommend this to anyone who is just getting started in Scrivener and is writing a novel, short story collection, or other related works of fiction.
Easy to read. Easy to follow. Good use of photo plates--though on Kindle the focus could be better.

Hodgson has really written a stunning tale of supernatural power and human madness.
Once you are introduced to the house in the garden and to the mystical happenings surrounding the house and the pit, you are wondering just what kind of mind you're in.
A tale within a tale well worth reading. Somewhat dated, but not worse for that if you happen to like nineteenth century literature (and I do). Having read this, I'll be scouting around for some more of Hodgson.
House on the Borderland would fit nicely beside Charles Brockden Brown's Wieland: Or the Transformation. I recommend BOTH books.
Excellent read. Exciting, fast paced. Rosenberg clearly has insider understanding of Israel's dilema in trying to be America's ally given a PresidentExcellent read. Exciting, fast paced. Rosenberg clearly has insider understanding of Israel's dilema in trying to be America's ally given a President that doesn't understand (or doesn't care about) her position. Iran wants to anhiliate the Jews. The President in The Tehran Initiative is not in touch with the import of the Mahdi's professed goals. He also endangers those in the field who risk their lives to gather intel that he refuses to act on.
I had no problem staying interested and reading to the end. Can't wait for the sequel. ...more
