    Ready Player One Review

    Ready player one is the ultimate thriller to keep you glued to your seat for the entire show. The movie is based on a novel by Ernest Cline released in mid-2011 which is basically an action-filled adventure story of Wade Watts, the lead character in the book. The movie is a whirlwind of pop culture […]

    The Collapsing Empire (The Interdependency #1) – John Scalzi

      Truth be told, I loved Old Man’s War … not necessarily the whole series mind you, but definitely Book 1.  It’s long been a staple and one that I’ve gone back to every now and then.  Unfortunately for me, however (and probably somewhat in the minority) I didn’t love Red Shirts which I thought […]

    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 […]

While the writing itself is nothing to write home about, the […]

    Deep Space Nine – Station Rage

    This was another book that was very easy to enjoy. Station Rage has action and intrigue, beginning with some history of DS9 and the Cardassians, building into scenes of espionage and eventually into guerrilla warfare on the station. On the space station, Deep Space Nine, in an unexplored area, Starfleet discovers preserved remains of several […]

    Fan fiction: DooM – The Fires of Phobos, Chapter 4

    Glowing jewels ran down the corridor, the plasma strikes the distant approaching invaders. “Fire in the hole” shouts a marine. The screeching grenade arched through the air and decimates a horde of aliens approaching from behind. Major Sargent Martinez was providing intel to Admiral Frost over a ultra frequency transmitter. “Mobility has been impaired. Our […]
