Not a fan overall of the Dean Koontz Formulaic Approach To Fantastic Fiction, but there are a handful of his books that I've read which gripped me for one reason or another. The Moonlight Bay series accounts (to this point) for two of those - althoug ...more

As I'm writing this blurb a number of months after actually reading this, and trying to catch up here on goodreads before the end of the calendar year, the temptation to take the lazy way out and say "Lord of the Flies for Generation X with a little ...more

A Fall of Moondust by Arthur C. Clarke
A Fall of Moondust

More of a straight-up suspense/action-type thriller than anything else I can remember reading from Clarke. Which isn't a complaint or an insult, just, you know, an observation. At one time this would have been considered hard sci-fi, or at least hard ...more

The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley

I would imagine, if I looked back through my goodreads reviews, that I probably don't give out all that many five star ratings for first books. Throw that out the window here, though, because I was spellbound by this one. The story itself unfolds wit ...more

The Time Traveler's Wife

Quite a charming book, if a little melodramatic now and then. It took me a little while to get into the uneven "flow" of Henry's life, but once you get a grasp on the overall outline his timestream becomes much easier to follow. Has a similar feel to ...more

Unfocused, trashy, typical late-career Heinlein madness. If you're the sort of reader who just wants to touch on Heinlein's great or "essential" books, this isn't one you need to bother picking up. But if you're a fan of the guy who has already come ...more

Call it 3.5 stars. A little bumpy and uneven, as many short story collections tend to be, but there are a few gems here, definitely including the Herbert West tale that wraps it all up with a bang.

Also: zombie piranhas. I mean, come on, zombie piranh

The City of Mirrors (The Passage, #3)

A very strong apocalyptic horror series that doesn't skimp on characterization and interpersonal relationships. There are a few places where the books bog down a bit under their own weight, but Cronin always manages to gather everything back together ...more
