The Cold Commands by Richard K. Morgan
Rate this book
Clear rating
Giving any sort of a review to Richard Morgan's fantasy series A Land Fit for Heroes is difficult. On the one hand, Morgan's brilliance shines through when it comes to building characters and his action scenes. Cold Commands far outstrips The Steel R ...more

The Intern's Handbook by Shane Kuhn
Rate this book
Clear rating
There's a hint of a great novel in The Intern's Handbook. The first two-thirds of the novel are joyfully chaotic, strangely reminiscent in tone of something like John Dies At The End. Unfortunately, Kuhn's novel falls upon some hard times in its last ...more

Already Dead by Charlie Huston

Shadowplay by Tad Williams
Rate this book
Clear rating
There's an epidemic among modern fantasy writers today of glacial bloat. Don't mistake my meaning - I have no problem with a large book or series if the plot advances at a natural, readable pace. But with writers like George R.R. Martin and Robert Jo ...more

McCracken and the Lost Island by Mark Adderley

Clear rating
Full disclosure - I've known Dr. Mark Adderley for over a decade. I understand that might appear to color this review, but I've approached this review as impartially as possible.

Being a non-Catholic thirty-something, I'm not exactly the target demogr
