Review: Any Given Lifetime by Leta Blake

I love that the back cover description of this book says it includes “some angst.” Have some tissues handy for at least the first two-thirds of the book. This science-fantasy romance (not sure how else to describe it) doesn’t pull its punches for any of the characters, regardless of their ages. Neil and Joshua don’tContinue reading “Review: Any Given Lifetime by Leta Blake”

Con Report: Farpoint 2022

Last weekend, the TARDIS (my electric car) finally fulfilled the mandate for which it was originally purchased — it drove me to a convention!

Review: Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir

I like to joke that I know just enough about science to be dangerous but not particularly effective. Apparently, I also know just enough about science to appreciate all the obvious work that Weir has once again put into what is otherwise a classic SF adventure novel without the pesky burden of knowing whether anyContinue reading “Review: Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir”

Review: Rise of the Iliri Series by Auryn Hadley

BloodLust (Book 1) This story that blends science-fiction and fantasy elements to create a world with unique characteristics immediately sucked me in. Though it’s advertised as a fantasy epic, all the “fantastical” tropes can be traced back to a very science-fiction origin, in which humans do what they do best: Sweep in and take overContinue reading “Review: Rise of the Iliri Series by Auryn Hadley”
