This could be a 5 star book, maybe I'm rating it too low? It's brilliant and weird in a perfect continuation of the brilliant weirdness of Ninefox Gambit. But because we've gone deeper and possibly also because I'm more used to the weirdness and can ...more

Freeport Companion by Robert J. Schwalb

Clear rating
Some good stuff, some very specific to the setting stuff that is harder to extract. There's enough in it to be usefully mined, and if you need a setting for your SotDL game, you could do worse.

Forbidden Rules by Robert J. Schwalb

Alternative rules for some of the core systems of Shadow of the Demon Lord; it's a mixed bag that I mainly don't find much of use in, but there's some good stuff here depending on your needs.

The Breaking of Northwall by Paul O. Williams

A bit picaresque, with a wandering plot that ranges over most of a continent and builds to nothing much, but it's entertaining even so.

Fate of the Norns by Andrew Valkauskas

Clear rating
Expansion for the core rules of FotN:R, which adds a good bit but is also kind of clunky. The sections are laid out strangely, in that you begin with major characters and then eventually go on to the summaries of places that explain the context of th ...more

The Last Magicians by John Jakes
Rate this book
Clear rating
There's not a lot to say about this: it's pretty typical of its period. Menacing magicians, helpless damsels, wise kings. It's sort of off brand Moorcock. A quick shallow read.

This is a pleasant enough book, but it's not as good as the Radch trilogy. Closely related and giving us a look outside Radch (but not far outside) it's a light romp of a story, kind of political, kind of a murder mystery, kind of a quest for justice ...more

Not quite as weird as The Southern Reach Trilogy, this is still a very strange, intensely inventive book about a dying city and the people struggling to live in it. The definition of "people" is the core of the book: what is a person, what can they a ...more

This book had me. It owned me. It could have destroyed me. It's a creepy, gripping account of a couple moving into a house and then...being haunted...going insane...having a secret roommate in hidden rooms...fooling each other? It was brilliant.
