Review of “The Sea Was a Fair Master” by Calvin Demmer

This author never disappoints in coming up with unique, impressively well-written shorts.  This collection of 23 stories has a little bit of everything - from crime to love to androids to the worst English class imaginable.  There's a great balance of creepy, troubling, sometimes funny (in an "oh, that's terrible" grinning kind of way), and...

Review of “Tick” by Allison Rose

Starting this book, I thought it would be a typical YA Dystopian SciFi story, and I was happy enough with that.  But every time I thought I knew where the story was going, it took a swerve and headed in a new direction.  I was NEVER bored with this book, and there were so many twists...

Review of “The Black Swan Company” by Luna DeMasi

I'm not an automatic sucker for any vampire book, but this one won me over quickly.  I loved the focus on investigative journalism as a way to dig deeper into the conspiracies and injustices committed by the authorities in this dystopian, semi-post-apocalyptic setting.  There are also elements of paranormal romance for readers who are drawn...

Review of “Them Rabbit Foot Blues” by Jason Spurlock

What did I just read?!  And I mean that in a good way.  My mind is always blown when a brand new author debuts with a book so well-written that it feels like the work of a pro.  Don't get me wrong - this book is all over the place and will be hard for... Continue Reading →

Review of “Hardened Hearts”

I finished this collection the day after Valentine's Day, which was kind of perfect.  These are not your typical love stories, although "love" is the general theme connecting them.  I was very impressed with each writer, and I didn't feel like there was a weak story in the bunch.  The writing is solid.  The range...
