More Book Reviews

As you can tell I get through a lot of books. Here's a few more I've recently reviewed for the British Fantasy Society.

The Forever Watch
by David Ramirez

The generation ship has been travelling for centuries, has many more to go, and it hides a terrible secret. A very interesting book whose pace slowly picks up before ending in an almighty scrap at the end. Pity about the sex scenes. Worthy of a bad sex award.

Terra's World
by Mitch Benn

Terra's a child of two worlds and one of them is in danger. Hijacking an alien bounty hunter's ship, she returns to Fnrr. What's there surprises her and drags her into danger. An excellent book for all ages. And I do mean all ages.

Also read and enjoyed recently were:

Notes on a Rebellion
by Valentina Hepburn

Random Knight embarks on a mission with several others to save their compound which is threatened by two allied foes. An excellent first book by a talented fantasy writer.

End Of Empires
by Toby Frost

Once again, Isambard Smith and his semi-heroic crew have to battle Lemmings while recovering Britain's finest field agent and persuading him to put some trousers on. The fifth comedy from Frost set in the British Space Empire.

The Outsorcerer's Apprentice
by Tom Holt

The Goblins want to change things, the hold music been destroyed, a lawyer wants to sue the Wizard and a gormless young man is causing chaos. Holt's latest comedy will have you grinning from ear to ear.

Enjoy the reads.

Friday Fun Plus

I'm glad that week's over. Wasn't bad, just dull. So glad I can read at work during the evening shift.

First up, the World Conker Championships took place last week. If you want to know who won, take a look.

Do you like cute animals? I thought so. Here are fifteen facts to help you love them even more. On the other side of the coin, fifteen strange (and ugly) animals you probably don't want to know about.


And on that scary note, I bid you adieu and hope you have a great weekend.
