The Gold Ogre by Kenneth Robeson
Rate this book
Clear rating
There were no other Doc Savage novels quite like "The Gold Ogre." That alone, with 181 other original tales of the Man of Bronze out there, makes it worth checking out. But it also happens to be a good story, though one likely to polarize the faithfu ...more

World's Fair Goblin by Kenneth Robeson
Rate this book
Clear rating
"Worlds Fair Goblin" is a notable Doc Savage adventure in that its action takes place entirely at the same site — the 1939 New York Worlds Fair — and as pinch-hitting "Kenneth Robeson" William Bogart's first stab at writing a Doc yarn. It was written ...more

Children of Dune by Frank Herbert
Rate this book
Clear rating
Much more like "Dune" than "Dune Messiah," this is a highly satisfying conclusion to the original trilogy. It expands this dense world interestingly as the world of Arrakis undergoes major transformation.

Dune Messiah by Frank Herbert
Rate this book
Clear rating
Much more like snapshot interlude than the deep and massive epics that bookend it "Dune Messiah" feels a little underwhelming as a consequence, and it probably is. It's good, but it feels novella-small in some ways.

Dune by Frank Herbert
Rate this book
Clear rating
"Dune" is pretty much the gold standard in science fiction world-building. This first chronicle of the desert world of Arrakis features political intrigue, space travel, off-worlders and natives, technology vs. nature, and, oh yes, giant sandworms. C ...more

Hands in the Dark
by Walter B. Gibson

Rate this book
Clear rating
I would have been hard-pressed myself to come up with a title for this Shadow novel, the 10th, first published in May 1932. "Hands in the Dark" is, I suppose, as good as anything. Which is more than I can say for this tale. Despite the title, there's ...more

("The Murder Master," 3 stars; "The Hydra," 4 stars)

Few listeners to your radio station? Just predict a few murders over the airwaves to spike those Arbitron ratings a bit. "The Murder Master," the title character in the lead novel of this double-Sha

The Crime Clinic / Cards of Death by Walter B. Gibson
Rate this book
Clear rating
Average-to-good Shadow novels appear in the 40th of the Sanctum Publications reprints of the pulp hero's adventures.

"The Crime Clinic" opens the festivities with an OK early (December 1933) tale. In it there is a pet bird of the type that can repeat

Vicksburg by A.A. Hoehling
Rate this book
Clear rating
War and rumors. A.A. Hoehling's "Vicksburg: 47 Days of Siege" has plenty of both. This valuable, mostly fascinating look from the viewpoints of the noncombatants and soldiery during the Summer 1863 siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi, is a nice complemen ...more

Haunted Ocean by Kenneth Robeson
Rate this book
Clear rating
Truth be told, "Haunted Ocean" is one of only two Doc Savage tales written by pinch-hitting writer Laurence Donovan that contribute much of anything to the Doc canon. As such, it's notable. But it's not much more than decent. It's unusually coherent ...more
