Vick’s Vultures
by Scott Warren

Vick's Vultures barely qualifies for two rockets. Confusing writing, flat characters, and marginal storytelling couldn't salvage an otherwise promising premise.

Lord Darcy
by Randall Garrett

Flat characters never instilled in me a desire to see or care if the crimes were solved. Lord Darcy is a fail for me.

Don’t Live For Your Obituary
by John Scalzi

Scalzi has the success and the genre cred to write a real book on writing. This is not that book.

Book Reviews

Sweet Silver Blues
by Glen Cook

Led me down such a herky-jerky path that the only thing clear to me was that I was not going to continue with the series.

Book Reviews

Ship of Magic
by Robin Hobb

Robin Hobb is one of my favorite authors. So of course I went into Ship of Magic expecting the usual greatness. Unfortunately, Hobb let me down on this one.

Movie Reviews

War for the Planet of the Apes

The third time is not the charm for this final movie in the franchise reboot. War for the Planet of the Apes was, unfortunately, a serious letdown in many ways.

Shadow's Son
by Jon Sprunk

Shadow's Son is akin to a blockbuster summer movie that almost works. It's good entertainment, but won't leave you hungry for more.
