reviewed eHuman Dawn. June 25
eHuman Dawn
This review is based on a reviewer copy received from the author but reflects my own opinion.      I was so lucky to find this well-written and captivating tale crafted by an up and coming SciFi writer.  This is as well written as anything by Robert J. Sawyer (Mindscan) or Orson Scott Card (Enders Game).       Roughly 250 years into the future the …

The Evil Is Under The Ice
This review is based on a free copy received directly from the author but reflects my own personal opinion.      Four human bodies are found buried in ice in Siberia. They are flown to the US for study by a group of scientists, including the narrator Dr. Frederick Orville. His job is to observe and record everything that happens. The bodies are very well preserved and the scientists …
I Have Three Things to Tell You My Friend
    This review is based on an advanced reader copy (with many typos) received from the author but still reflects my own opinion.       In the near future (2033), John Sinclair is facing the turning point of his life.  He is one year from retirement age and has two options.  He can retire and live out his life (to about 80).  He can also accept …

Hollow World a book
I usually love a good time travel story and this one is right up there with some of the best. Ellis Rogers is dying from an incurable lung disease and enstranged from his wife after their son Isley committed suicide. Ellis came across the theories of a scientist on time travel and figures out that some of the calculations were wrong and he is able to correct the math and contruct his own time machine …

SG - Suicide Game a book
My review is based on a reviewer copy received directly from the author but reflects my own personal opinion.      It is the very near future and for some reason society has gone crazy for a new game they can bet on. Played in a stadium, the players jump from a high platform. If their rope breaks they die and if not, they continue on to the next round. This continues until only …

Daughters of Twilight a book
My review is based on a reviewer copy received from the author.  However, the views expressed here are soley my own. I was intrigued by this tale right from the start.  The author gives us a little tidbit as a man escapes from an underground place and is almost run over by a trucker.  The man is delirious talking about angels and singing Swing Low Sweet Chariot.  The trucker …
reviewed In the Balance, by Harry Turtledove. December 08, 2013
posted in SF Signal
Harry Turtledove is a professional historian.  But he dropped out of CalTech.  So naturally he combined history and science and got alternate history science fiction.      Aliens invaded during World War II.  So we get historical figures like FDR, Hitler, Stalin, Enrico Fermi, General Groves of the Manhattan Project and of course General Patton fighing aliens from …

Upload a novel by Mark Mcclelland
My review is based on a copy provided free from the author but is strictly my own opinion. In the year 2060, Raymond is a misfit who is sent to live in boys home. He hates his life and is taunted by the other boys. His one piece of solace is going into a virtual reality chamber that he has designed for himself. As it is the only place he is happy, he dreams of the day when he can "upload" …

Thor: The Dark World
There is no doubt that this newest Thor movie is superior to the 2011 movie that focused far too much on S.H.I.E.L.D. and building the Marvel universe that it left it's title character and his world threadbare.  Having said that while this newest adventure corrects that deficency, it leaves others still needing attention.      Thor: The Dark World begins by telling the …

Thor: the Dark World
Movies based on Marvel comics have been such an easy way to make a quick buck for filmmakers. The recent splash of the Marvel comic book adaptations in recent years have been more or less based on the Ultimate line of comic books with some alterations to fit the original 616 universe. True, those who follow my reviews know my dissatisfaction with most of the movie franchises, but I cannot deny the …
