Shatter Point by Jeff Altabef
admin / November 14, 2014
One of the things I like about writers who set their works in the future is that they are essentially allowing the reader to be a time traveler.  Shatter Point by Jeff Altabef does this.  I’m not talking doom and gloom apocalypse or rocket ships[..]
New Frontier by Jeremy Lee – A Review
admin / February 07, 2014
The one thing that is the most enjoyable about the genre of science fiction is entering the realm of possibility – the land of that which could happen.  Many people read the genre as an escape, others for the action, some, well, just because.  And[..]

Things have never really been black and white for me, until I looked at the shirt and stickers that I'm going to send to a couple of folks.  Looks like the BFM and Chive gear is, at least at the moment, black and white.Earlier in[..]

I'm late to the party.  After seeing The Last Bastion of Humanity (my review here) on a recommend read list, I  decided to give it a try.  It didn't take me long to finish my first book by Rhiannon Frater.  It was my hope The[..]
The Rook by Steven James – A Review
admin / February 06, 2013
