Review: Starship Repo by Patrick S. Tomlinson

Starship Repo is the newest novel from the mind of Patrick S. Tomlinson. And honestly, I couldn’t be happier about picking this novel up. I’ve been really craving something like this lately, but I hadn’t been able to put it into words until now. I wanted a space opera with a healthy sense of comedic relief and character building. I got all of that here. Continue reading

Review: Kingdom of Needle and Bone by Mira Grant

Kingdom of Needle and Bone is Mira Grant’s (AKA Seanan McGuire) latest novella, and it is not for the faint of heart. Seriously, I was about eighty percent of the way through this novella when I realized I have compulsively sanitized my hands more than six times while reading. Continue reading

Review: Sworld: The Chronicles of Malick by William R. Harris

Sworld is the first novel in the Chronicles of Malick series, by William R. Harris. It’s also Harris’ debut novel (according to Goodreads, at least). It’s a science fiction novel, but that description really doesn’t do it justice. It’s a space exploration novel, sometimes similar in feel to Star Trek, sometimes becoming a thing of its own creation. It’s a detailed and fascinating tale, full of science and trials. Continue reading

Chimera is the third and final novel in the Parasitology series by Mira Grant (aka Seanan McGuire. The series is somewhere between a medical thriller and a dystopian series, in many ways. In a world where scientist feel comfortable skipping steps for the ‘greater good’ (and greater profit) it really was only a matter of time before an outbreak such as the one in this series occurred.
