Growing up, while her friends went to the beach and learned vital social skills, Robyn had her nose in a book or her eyes on a PBS special. After all, what kind of wrong-headed dolt would want to waste their time partying, when Marty Stouffer is about to talk about water shrews? When Ai and Estraven are braving the frozen wastes of Gethen? When Alex and his droogs are… You know, that time she probably should have gone to the beach.

Now she spends her days working in biotech and her nights thinking up new curse words to adequately describe how horrible people are. Having met with limited success in either endeavor, she vents her frustrations through crime, yelling at clouds, and writing. Her debut novel, The Guns Above, will be released by T

GOING OUT OF BUSINESS SALE

Soooooooo, maybe you've noticed this blog hasn't been updated in a while.

That's because no one's reading it. Yup. If you're reading this, you don't exist. I'm sorry I had to be the one to break it to you.

Anyway! Feel free to linger as long as you'd like. I'm not deleting the articles or anything. Just be aware that, when the bar lights come on, you might see some stuff you'll wish you hadn't.

Citizen of Earth by Joseph J. Kassabian
Citizen of Earth
by Joseph J. Kassabian (Goodreads Author)

Half Old Man’s War and half Matterhorn, Citizen of Earth is a twisty, turny adventure filled with sass and action. I adore Kassabian’s cynical sense of humor.

STARGATE SG-1 by Geonn Cannon
Rate this book
Clear rating
I’m a huge fan of Stargate, and this book did not disappoint. Cannon nails the unique voice of each character, as well as the overall tone of the franchise. He also picks a rich moment in SG-1’s history, shortly after Vala joins the team, and he puts ...more

I’ve been loving S. Usher Evan’s novels since The Island, and I legit think they’re getting better with every new book. Redemption wowed me with its depth of characters, page-turner pacing, sparkling dialogue, and gripping action. This is a perfect, ...more

Star Wars by Justina Ireland

Finally, a Lando book that’s actually worthy of the name. Billy Dee Williams brought such a suave flair to Lando that we were too busy falling in love to notice what a jerkwad he was, and few authors have managed to capture that mix of debonair and k ...more

The Hooligans of Kandahar by Joseph J. Kassabian

The Hooligans of Kandahar feels honest to a degree that few war novels do—even among firsthand, nonfiction accounts. It doesn’t appear to have an agenda apart from putting down the facts as seen through one soldier’s eyes. Assignments and ops play ou ...more

Revival by S. Usher Evans

“Jack lay in the bed for a moment, angry and horny.”

I was a little nervous as I started this book, because it takes a few chapters to get going, and I feared it would suffer from the malaise common to mid-trilogy novels.

Then HOLY CRAP DID IT EVER GE

Let’s put this plainly: Dread Nation is the best new book I’ve read in 2018. And, though the year is still young, I don’t expect that assessment to change. It’s that good.

“Her eyes snapped open and she was instantly awake, alert, and ready. “Thank you, Ensign,” she said.
Kember saluted unsteadily, her face drained of blood.
“Oh, and Ensign?” Josette said, before the girl left. “That request for you to throw yourself over the side and fall straight to Hell was not a formal order. You may feel free to disregard it.”
Robyn Bennis, The Guns Above

“Respectfully, sir,” the man without eyebrows said as they ran, “you ever try not enraging people so much?”
“Once,” she said, looking over her shoulder. “It didn’t work.”

“What does one wear to an ambush?” he asked. “Is it a formal affair? I ask only because I can’t seem to decline to invitation.”
