Having previously reviewed Replay by Ken Grimwood, I was approached by the author to provide a review of this book which uses a similiar premise.  Max Thorning is 42 and in a rut with his life.  …

The Man Who Folded Himself by David Gerrold

This is probably Preston's best thriller as a soloist and it improves on the Codex of which it is loosely a sequel to.  The tie-in being that the main character is Tom Broadbent who was one of the …

This book had a lot of potential and is indeed rich in history.  What hurt this book a lot was that Crichton decided to emphasize and amount of time available for the characters to complete their …
Go-Go Girls Of The Apocalypse
Here is another classic after civilization falls novel as good as Alas Babylon, Lucifer's Hammer or The Stand. Don't be fooled by the cover or the references to Quentin Tarrentino. It is actually a very …

The Last Days of Krypton
Mr. Anderson has wound together a wonderful "science fiction" tale that stands on its own away from the comic book universe. You would not need to be familiar with the Superman story to enjoy this book …
reviewed Prey. June 10, 2004
Prey
Crichton does an excellent job of writing a heart-pounding high tech thriller! This is a story of nano-technology gone out of control. Those familiar with Ben Bova's tales (Venus, The Asteroid War series, …

Planet of the Apes (Signet)
This book was so good, I had to finish it once I started. It is very different than the first movie but a little bit like the remake. The book certainly has a better story than either of those two films.In …
