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.

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.

Movie Reviews

Black Panther

Visually stunning, exceptional characters, great action, and more humor than I was expecting. I don’t know what else to say about Black Panther but to go see it.

Blackguards: Tales of Assassins, Mercenaries, and Rogues
by J.M. Martin (editor)

A 4 rocket rating gets marked down to 3 due to the excessive typos. Otherwise, Blackguards is a rich collection of dastardly tales full of rogues, thieves, and assassins.

Legacy
by Lois McMaster Bujold

This second novel in Bujold's Sharing Knife series brings to a close events set in motion in Beguilement. A slow and steady pace (much like a Robin Hobb novel) ensures a long, enjoyable read as Bujold always impresses.

The Collapsing Empire
by John Scalzi

The Collapsing Empire begins a galaxy spanning story full of political backstabbing and shaky alliances. Scalzi's always colorful cast of characters and punchy writing kept me engaged throughout the reading experience. Needless to say, this one doesn't disappoint.

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.
