Reviews for Nikki 2.3

My story ‘Nikki 2.3’, currently available at The Journal Of Unlikely Entomology, has had a couple of reviews come in. Most recently, there’s a positive review from Sam Tomaino at SFRevu: “Our narrator here, is also “female”, a sexbot A.I. that is stuck in a computer, abandoned by he boss, HotDawg. She finds a way […]

Read this month

Yesterday I wrote a bit about not writing reviews anymore. But I still definitely want to hightlight *what* I am reading and since I’m busy packing up books right now I figured I should mention some work I’ve recently read before it disappears into a cardboard void. I had a backlog of unread On Spec […]

Read this Week

As part of my heroic attempts to wrestle my to-read pile into submission I’ve finally gotten around to reading ‘Rage of the Behemoth‘ from Rogue Blade. Overall this is a fun read! Some of the stories in the anthology were really first-rate, full of heroic action adventure. I’ll be looking eagerly for more stories from […]

Read This Week

Finished reading Murky Depths #11. Always a good magazine… loads of artwork throughout complementing the superb stories. My favorite story this time around is probably ‘Heart of Clay’ by DK Thompson… I really enjoy the writer’s weird world of ghost detectives and golems.

Read Again: On Spec #81

I don’t often reread anything because I have such a back log of unread books and stories but one story has been stuck in my head for a while and I checked it out again. The issue is On Spec #81 and the story is Greg Wilson’s Still. I mentioned it a while back. Anyways […]

Warrior Wisewoman #3 Edited by Roby James This is an annual anthology of stories featuring women protagonists.

Review Black Gate Magazine on the iPad

I promised the Black Gate folks a review of the pdf version of Black Gate #14 and with all the excitement this summer it took me longer to read it than I had intended. Many apologies for the lateness of this. Earlier in the year I changed my print subscription to Black Gate into an […]

Read this Week – The Assault on Reason

Finished reading The Assault on Reason by Al Gore. Overall I enjoyed this book. I know very little about the United State’s system of government and I thought this a good primer, though probably biased a little. But Mr. Gore’s reasoning behind what he feels were the intentions of the Founders and why they wrote […]

Review Present at the Future

Present at the Future by Ira Flatow was a book I saw recommended by several sci-fi authors as being a nice overview of some of the big topics in science in the last couple decades (cloning, string theory, nanotech and such). Overall I enjoyed it… a nice idea fest. Many topics I’ve been exposed to […]

On Spec #80 Review

Another one of my quick reviews. Just finished the latest On Spec (a great magazine and I’m not just saying that because I’ve had a couple stories published in it or because it is produced here in Edmonton… I’ve been a subscriber for many years). This issue we have: A Thousand by Leah Bobet This […]
