Jirel of Joiry by C.L. Moore
Rate this book
Clear rating
C.L. Moore’s collected Jirel of Joiry stories suffer from the same problem as her Northwest Smith stories. Each is spurred by one incandescently brilliant story and one great pulp character—here, Black God’s Kiss and the titular Jirel of Joiry—and fe ...more

Vita Nostra by Marina Dyachenko
Rate this book
Clear rating
The Dyachenko’s The Scar is one of my favorite books of all time. But I have yet to find another book by the writing couple that blows me away to the same extent. Vita Nostra is an excellent riff on the magical school. The school here is both deeply ...more

The True Queen by Zen Cho
Rate this book
Clear rating
I LOVED Sorcerer to the Crown. It is Cho, not George R.R. Martin, who we should have been harassing for another book. She finally gave us a follow up with The True Queen and it is . . . good. The True Queen is a follow-up set in the same world but fe ...more

Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames
Rate this book
Clear rating
Great storytelling hay can be reaped by taking old tropes and flat out running with them until you reach their natural, logical conclusion. (See, e.g., M.L. Brennan’s Generation V series.) Eames does just that with the band of adventurers model commo ...more

She by H. Rider Haggard
Rate this book
Clear rating
Reading a Robert E. Howard story, “The Moon of Skulls,” led me to pull out one of its inspirations: She by H. Rider Haggard. Howard’s story suffers from the comparison.

She is the first Haggard book I’ve read. The comparison between the two stories, t

Crowfall by Ed McDonald
Rate this book
Clear rating
Ed McDonald does something remarkable with Crowfall. Crowfall is the third (and presumably final) book in his stellar Raven’s Mark series. Third books—especially third books that close a series—follow a certain pattern. The first book sets up the wor ...more

Raid by K.S. Merbeth
Raid
by K.S. Merbeth (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
The Mad Max comparison (courtesy of a cover quote from Delilah Dawson) does Raid no favors. You might say “a Mad Max-style wasteland,” but saying Mad Max implies some serious vehicular madness (the vehicular madness predates the post-apocalyptic wast ...more

Cirsova by P. Alexander
Rate this book
Clear rating
I have fallen behind in my Cirsova reading. With the name change and the change in focus, I decided to jump ahead from the last issue I read (issue no. 3 from volume 1) to the first issue of volume 2.

Formerly, Cirsova: Heroic Fantasy and Science Fict

The Savage Tales of Solomon Kane by Robert E. Howard

The Savage Tales of Solomon Kane is my fifth of Del Rey’s eleven collected volumes of Robert E. Howard’s work. I introduced myself to Howard with the three volumes of Conan stories and then read the collection of his horror stories (my introduction t ...more

Spying on the South by Tony Horwitz
Rate this book
Clear rating
I love Tony Horwitz’s nonfiction. He has a simple formula: he picks some interesting, underappreciated bit of history, then explores the modern day geography. The result is a mix of travelogue and history as Horwitz interweaves his own adventures wit ...more

C.S. Lewis
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
C. S. Lewis
