 I Have Seen The Invisible Library.
Posted by bmills - 04-3-17 04:45 - 6 comments
First off, let me start by saying that I don't really care for fantasy and never saw the appeal of steam punk, so the only reason I grudgingly checked this one out is for the sake of discussing it here.

Imagine my surprise at liking ...read more

 Empress Game
Posted by Kokipy - 03-6-17 01:10 - 6 comments
Read it, and the sequel. Somewhat annoyed to have to wait for the third and one hopes concluding volume.
I wasn't wild about this one, although I persisted and as noted, as is my general practice, read the second volume too. It was fairly ...read more

 Is Anyone Uprooted?
Posted by Kokipy - 02-2-17 00:06 - 13 comments
I liked this one quite a lot. I have read most of the Novik napoleonic era dragon books and enjoyed them, in their somewhat reminiscent of Patrick O'Brian mood. This one seemed to me to be original, and yet somewhat reminiscent of another of my ...read more

In keeping with an annual tradition, I sent these out as an email to friends and family, and share them with you. These are read in 2016, not published. I had an excellent year in nonfiction, and a pretty good one in fiction. I'd love to hear ab ...read more

 40,000 In Gehenna.
Posted by bmills - 12-23-16 20:56 - 17 comments
It's been a while since I read a non-Foreigner Cherryh, and I was reminded why I liked her so much in the first place. Her stories are not too happy and not too depressing. Bad things happen and then people adjust to them, but they generally com ...read more
