    THE HERO OF AGES (MISTBORN)

    This book was one that I took with me on a long road trip.  I expected it to last me at least half the trip, but I quickly found that this one more than the other two was one that I just could not put down.  While I was bored for the rest of my […]

    THE RITHMATIST

    I think I’ve said this before in some of my other posts, so I apologize for the repetition, but I just don’t know how he does it? Every time I think I’ve read everything written by the man, I find more books that I’ve still not read (I’m now working my way through an audio […]

    Stranger in a strange land – Heinlein

    Definitely one that is a classic of the SciFi genre, Stranger in a Strange Land is actually quite a hefty and difficult book. Heinlein‘s writing style is very evident throughout this book and this is probably one of his most famous works. The story while based in the future, is definitely driven by the current […]

    THE REALITY DYSFUNCTION

    The 26th Century In the late 26th Century mankind had spread across the galaxy and colonized over 900 different planets.  With huge technological innovations behind them they now had intelligent and communicative starships that were able to navigate themselves and “swallow” across the void of space. Split into two factions – the Adamists were the […]

    Warbreaker

    I’ve read most everything that Brandon Sanderson has published now including the two newest Wheel of Time books (reviews here & here), his Mistborn series (reviewed here), his newest Magnum Opus – The Way of Kings (reviewed here) and finally most recently Warbreaker. Eventually I will get to the Elantris series also and will post […]

    THE SHIVA OPTION

    Hopefully you have had the joyous pleasure of playing the old PC based space strategy game – Master of Orion and its successors … otherwise known as MOO I – MOO III?  If not you are really missing out on something really enjoyable and in a similar fashion to Civilization (and its successors) a game […]

    FURIES OF CALDERON

    Another series I didn’t start until I knew that all the books were complete.  Unfortunately Robert Jordan‘s death during the course of writing the Wheel of Time has permanently scarred me and I am frightened to start a new series without knowing that it will eventually conclude! The Furies of Calderon is the first in […]

    THE WHEEL OF TIME – THE GATHERING STORM

      While I would be amongst the first to state that Jordan’s writing style is not the best (please note – when I state Jordan’s style is not the best, this primarily refers to his long windedness (I know, that’s not even a word!) and the way that he sometimes tends to repeat the story […]

    A PLANET CALLED TREASON

    From the creator of the Enderverse series, A Planet Called Treason is an exciting read that really captures your imagination: The story of Treason is as follows – once upon a time, in the far distant future, there was a revolution.  The old government was overthrown and the new Republic transported its former masters to […]

    Fanfiction – DooM: Portal to Chaos, Chapter 2

    Chapter II – Deimos Rising “…Now running signature Omega-38 against sequence 430-Alpha” said Dr. Kronos in the darkened research lab, a massive construct sat before him. Kronos watched energy patterns and equations scroll along the holo-monitor. “Those patterns seem to correlate from here” came a voice from a small transmitter, sitting on the desk. “I’m […]
