ARC Review: The Bastard Legion by Gavin Smith

This is the first book by Gavin Smith that I’ve read, and I’m so happy to say that The Bastard Legion lived up to my hopes and expectations.  It has so many things that I absolutely love: a dark and gritty world, cool and complex technology, morally grey characters, and a butt-kicking leading lady.  This is a tough one to review because I feel like you should really dive in and discover for yourself, but I’ll do my best.

ARC Review: Electric Dreams by Philip K. Dick

So I’ve done a video review for Electric Dreams already, but I wanted to get one up here too.  I know there has been some good reaction to my Beginner’s Guide to Science Fiction (part one and part two), and Electric Dreams is the perfect book for anyone looking to get started with sci-fi.

Weekly Wrap-Up #21

Happy Friday, everyone!  If you remember last week’s post, I was in a little bit of a slump.  I’m pleased to say that I’m slowly clawing my way out of that slump now!  I didn’t read a huge amount this week, but it’s better than last week’s whole lot of nothing.

TBR Thursday #7

TBR Thursday is a weekly post hosted by yours truly.  If you’d like to participate in TBR Thursdays, please feel free!  Link me in your post so I can talk a look at what you’ve got on your shelves and so we can cry together about how we are never going to actually finish reading through our TBR piles.

ARC Review: Sea of Rust

Sea of Rust first drew my eye because it has one of the most stunning covers I've seen this year, and we've established here before that I am incredibly shallow when it comes to my books.  I was delighted by the description -- it sounded so incredibly Asimovian and old-school sci-fi that I had to take a chance.
