Book Reviews

I've been busy doing book reviews for the BFS this year, and I thought I'd share a few with you.

In Dark Service, by Stephen Hunt. A new world from the creator of the Jackelian series.

Limit, by Frank Schatzing. A tale of spies, lies and spoilt rich people who get killed.

Forest of Lies, by Chris Speyer. One for the young adults, a tale of a world where global warming has hit hard.

The Night of the Swarm, by Robert VS Redick. If you like your fantasy world highly detailed, then this is for you.

On The Steel Breeze, by Alastair Reynolds. An excellent tale set in a far distant future where elephants are almost extinct and humanity is finally starting to colonise other worlds.

There you have them. Read and decide if you enjoy them. You can find many other reviews from other fans of SF and Fantasy on the BFS reviews site.

Friday Fun

Not a bad week all told. Could've been a lot worse.

To start with, how about a smile at the expense of toddlers totally losing control of their temper. Some of the reasons will ring true to every parent. And for those of us...errrrr...you who wallow in the past, a look at these adverts from the past should convince you it wasn't all sunshine and roses. And what happens when you don't proofread your signposts? This. Finally, back to kids, only this time, it's the parents who are having a bad day.

Now it's picture time.

Well, I'm definitely crazy. Have a great weekend.
