Review: Dragon Precinct by Keith R.A. DeCandido

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this book for full price. Once again, DeCandido has blown me away with his knowledge of genre tropes and how to bend them to his will to create a fantastic story. This time, he combines the magic of police procedurals with high fantasy (via table-topContinue reading “Review: Dragon Precinct by Keith R.A. DeCandido”

Review: A Furnace Sealed (Adventures of Bram Gold #1) by Keith R.A. DeCandido

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased a hardcopy version of this book for full price. Sometimes a book is really easy to review. I started it about an hour before I went out with friends for the night. I spent the entire evening wishing I was back home reading the book.Continue reading “Review: A Furnace Sealed (Adventures of Bram Gold #1) by Keith R.A. DeCandido”

Review: Q & A (Star Trek: The Next Generation) by Keith R. A. DeCandido

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this paperback at full price. This twentieth-anniversary celebration of Star Trek: The Next Generation novel is a fitting tribute to the lasting mark Q has left on the franchise. And I can’t think of a better writer to infuse Q’s ridiculousness into text form. ThisContinue reading “Review: Q & A (Star Trek: The Next Generation) by Keith R. A. DeCandido”

Con Report: Farpoint 2020

I attended my third year at Farpoint in Baltimore, Maryland, this past weekend and had an absolute blast spending time with friends and being a panelist on some of my favorite topics. I wish I’d been able to hang out more in the evening with people, but I commuted from home this year and hadContinue reading “Con Report: Farpoint 2020”

Con Report: Balticon 53

I had another fantastic weekend at my “local” convention, Balticon, over Memorial Day weekend! This convention was my first time manning a table in the dealer room for the entire event, which was both exhausting and fun, and definitely offered a different perspective on the convention experience. Luckily, I had friend and author Cara McKinnonContinue reading “Con Report: Balticon 53”

Con Report: Farpoint 2018

Last weekend, I attended my first Farpoint convention! You could say that I got my start in speculative fiction as a Star Trek fan, so it was nice to get back to my roots, as it were. FRIDAY Since this is a “local” convention for me, I commuted from home rather than staying at theContinue reading “Con Report: Farpoint 2018”

Review: Heart of the Dragon (Supernatural #4) by Keith R.A. DeCandido

I usually avoid reading other reviews of books before writing my own, but for some reason I scrolled down when getting the links for this book. While it looks like the majority of the ratings are positive, the top few reviews that showed up on Goodreads absolutely trashed this book, which is unfortunate. You mightContinue reading “Review: Heart of the Dragon (Supernatural #4) by Keith R.A. DeCandido”

Review: BONE KEY (Supernatural #3) by Keith R.A. DeCandido

My quest to become a genuine Keith R.A. DeCandido fangirl continues today with his second Supernatural media tie-in novel. I enjoyed this one a lot more than his first, Nevermore, for a variety of reasons. 

Review: NEVERMORE (Supernatural #1) by Keith R.A. DeCandido

There are four of us in a group of some of my best friends, and we’re all fans of the show Supernatural (though some of us are more caught up than others, ahem). Along the way, we even acquired nicknames from the main characters, and it should surprise none of you that I’m Sam. So whenContinue reading “Review: NEVERMORE (Supernatural #1) by Keith R.A. DeCandido”

Con Report: Balticon 51

Since Balticon is my “local” convention, I was thrilled to finally be invited to participate as a panelist this year. I hadn’t been back since 2006, but the convention was just as great as I remembered, filled with fantastic panels, extraordinarily nice people, and amazing hall costumes. FRIDAY  Since I work in a nearby partContinue reading “Con Report: Balticon 51”
