    My Top 9 Kindle Unlimited Military SciFi Picks

    I’ve spoken already about Kindle Unlimited (its pros and cons) so won’t go into too much detail on it here. Suffice it to say from my point of view its a way of getting books cheap (often from new or fairly unknown authors), but that being said, no one wants to read books that aren’t […]

    Kindle Unlimited – come on Amazon – be fair!

    As a recent member of Kindle Unlimited – by the way and completely unrelated do you feel that Canadian’s and for that matter anyone not from the US gets gypped by Amazon?  I mean Amazon Prime is actually quite cool … in the States.  There you get Video (similar to Netflix but probably not as good) and […]

    Battletech – A Return to the Inner Sphere

    It’s been a long time since I originally read and played in the Battletech universe. However, with a recent membership in Scribd after I cancelled my Kindle Unlimited membership I joyfully came across this series once again. If you’re a fan of reading and audiobooks, I highly recommend Scribd as while I liked Kindle Unlimited, […]

    All about My Love of Sci-Fi

    Generally, when I think about Science Fiction (aka Sci-Fi or SciFi), I think of futuristic things, like faster than light travel, robots, and grandparents knowing how to use computers. But these ideas aren’t a recent invention. Ancient Indians were writing about flying machines as far back as 1100 B.C. Clearly, attempting to look into the future is […]

    The Scorched Earth by Terry Mixon

        Terry has written a couple of books that I’m quite fond of (namely his Empire of Bones saga, reviewed here, and here) so I thought this one was worth a try too – and while it’s not perfect, there is enough in it that I’m probably going to pick up book 2 when […]

    Empire of Bones – Terry Mixon

    It’s not often that I find a new author that I fall in love with from the first book.  In most cases while I enjoy their first novel I tend to leave the effusive words till I’ve read more and can truly comment on their qualities, however in this case I have to be quite […]

    To Honor You Call Us (Man of War) – The Cumberland Gap

    Another book from the Kindle Unlimited Library & Amazon & while I wish this one was better, it’s also not as bad as some of the others I’ve read … in fact there are some elements that I really liked. To Honor You Call Us tells the story of a ship that has not had too […]

    The Hobbit

    For fans of fantasy there probably is no greater book than the Lord of the Rings.  While other authors (Jordan and Martin for example) have since expanded on these words and worlds (Wheel of Time, Game of Thrones, Way of Kings etc…) and taken the realms in different directions, the granddaddy for all of them […]

    Constitution – Book 1 of the Legacy Fleet by Nick Webb

    Well it had to happen I guess … I mean I’d had a pretty good run of well written and edited books with a decent story, plotline and characters, I guess you couldn’t expect it to last forever! Discovery of the Saiph was really enjoyable and Steel Breach was excellent – both books and authors […]

    Space battle goodness! – Discovery of the Saiph

    As you all know I’m a voracious reader and can easily get through 2-3 books a week.  I have to admit that I’ve managed to increase this consumption recently while I’ve been on holiday and have literally devoured a host of different books and series by multiple different authors.  Unfortunately I’ve not had Internet access […]

    Battle Cruiser – B. V. Larson

    I recognized the name B.V.Larson first as one that I’d read before but I couldn’t figure out or exactly remember where I’d heard of him, but as this was another find on Kindle Unlimited, I thought it was definitely worth pursuing and I’m actually really glad I did. His previous books – one of which I’ve […]
