Beer of the Week: Molson Canadian

Beer score: 5.6

Company: Molson Coors

ABV: 5.0
IBU: 15

A cheese and crackers lager. A good, plain, all-around beer. Not necessarily a beer snob's beer, but not a bad beer at all. You could serve this one to your beer snob friends and not be disgraced.
Has a light, pale color like gold when you pour it, though there is something of a corn and rice smell that's not uncommon among premium Read more of this blog post »

A Discourse in Steel by Paul S. Kemp

Clear rating
This was simply a rollicking ball of fun. Kemp's Egil and Nix characters are obvious versions of Fritz Leiber's Fafhrd and Grey Mouser, but it works without feeling like its ripping off Leiber, mainly because there are enough differences in Kemp's ch ...more

A Roman legion finds itself transported to a fantasy world? What's not to like? The writing here is solid along with the plotting, and the characters are interesting. If I have any real criticism, it's that the fantasy world introduced here would be ...more

Not bad. Not as good as I had been led to expect, but not bad. The plot is not easy to discuss without giving anything away, but I will say this is a multi-faceted plot with multiple characters taking the pov at one time or another. The writing is pr ...more

Reader, you will not find many of the traditional fantasy tropes here. Oh, there are plenty of swords, a couple of beasties, and a handful of wizards, but that's about as far as it goes. If anything, the tropes presented here are much more aligned wi ...more

Some might argue noir fiction and speculative fiction are an antithesis to one another, that it's practically impossible to combine the cynicism of noir with the attitudes of the speculative, but I must say this collection proves such notions wrong. ...more
