Review: Clockwork Universe: Steampunk vs Aliens edited by Patricia Bray & Joshua Palmatier

This was a fun anthology that I easily read over the course of a weekend of airplane flights. The stories were dissimilar enough that they were easily distinguishable, despite the thematic elements that tied them all together. I especially enjoyed that the stories did not all take place in England or even Europe, and thatContinue reading “Review: Clockwork Universe: Steampunk vs Aliens edited by Patricia Bray & Joshua Palmatier”

Review: Lights, Camera, Cupid! (Bluewater Bay #6)

“Just Another Day” by L.A. Witt: I loved this quick check-in with our first Bluewater Bay couple, actors Carter and Levi. Levi is his usual cantankerous and loveable self, Carter is still too perfect for words, and I’d be jealous of those cats if I didn’t own three ridiculous Siamese of my own. Also, thoseContinue reading “Review: Lights, Camera, Cupid! (Bluewater Bay #6)”

Review: Pathways (Tales of Valdemar #11) edited by Mercedes Lackey

While I usually call out two specific stories in anthologies, my favorite and the one I’d most like to see expanded into a novel, I’m unable to do that with this Valdemar collection. I enjoyed most of the stories, but none of them jumped out to me as amazing. A few of the stories alsoContinue reading “Review: Pathways (Tales of Valdemar #11) edited by Mercedes Lackey”

Review: Points of Origin (SG-1/SGA Travelers’ Tales #2) edited by Sally Malcolm

Favorite story: “Precognition” by Jo Graham touches on the after-effects of one of my favorite episodes of Stargate SG-1, when our heroes travel back in time and are aided by a younger George Hammond. It was lovely to see his progression through the years, taking us to the man we know and love who guidedContinue reading “Review: Points of Origin (SG-1/SGA Travelers’ Tales #2) edited by Sally Malcolm”

Review: TEMPEST edited by Mercedes Lackey

Favorite story: “Harmless as Serpents” by Rosemary Edghill & Rebecca Fox Perhaps because they are such alien creatures, stories where a point of view character is a Companion always intrigue me. Throw in tantalizing details about the mysterious land of Iftel, the realistic aftereffects of Karse’s religious upheaval, and multiple laugh-out-loud moments, and this was easilyContinue reading “Review: TEMPEST edited by Mercedes Lackey”
