I read the first two books of this series a few years ago, and I thought they were aimed at an audience a few decades younger than me. (Or maybe just younger-at-heart than me; my friend's 70 year old Mom loves them.) I thought they were a little sill ...more

"The Storyteller" is many stories rolled into one. It's the story of Sage, the baker, who's carrying around a lot of guilt and a facial scar that goes with it. It's also about her grandmother who survived the concentration camps of World War II. It's ...more

The Third Galaxy Reader by H.L. Gold
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is a very fun example of "vintage" sci-fi, and I enjoyed most of the stories inside. You have to get used to the storytelling style and cadence (it's a 60-year old book after all) but I think it's worth a read.

I got through five chapters and then skimmed my way to the end. I love these characters and the story has such promise, but the constant attempts to give exposition on the previous 18 books just wears me out.

There's very little action in this story,

Limetown by Cote Smith
"I love the Limetown podcast. It is the only podcast I’ve listened to twice, and the latest season is wonderful. So it’s almost shocking how little I liked this book.

There’s a danger to prequels. Rarely do the questions that we “want” to know have..." Read more of this review »

I enjoyed season one of Limetown, and was told before I started season two I should read the book, and I'm glad I did: there is a major piece of information dropped about 90 pages or so from the end, and I think you have to have that before you hear ...more

I just got done reading this for the second time, and holy COW I love this book. A little gross in the first few chapters ("Sex Tornado." Wow. Yuck.) but SO worth it. He puts in so many fascinating little DETAILS, either in "boosting" or "Party Crash ...more

I'm kicking myself for not reading this sooner, what a delicious book. Everything you love about magic, and art, and a place that you could visit one time and then do anything to go back. It's beautiful, and dark, and joyful, and heartbreaking, all w ...more

I just finished reading this for the second time, and I have no idea what I was doing the first time I read it, because I remembered almost nothing about the story. And that's wonderful, because it means I got to read this book for the first time, tw ...more

I wanted to like it, I really did, but in the end I was a little disappointed. See https://pixelatedgeek.com/2018/10/rev... for the full review. (I've been a John Varley fan for years, and I just feel this book was rushed. A tighter edit, dropping th ...more
