Star Wars: The Old Republic - Revan
Drew Karpyshyn isn't exactly a real prominent name when it comes to the Star Wars expanded universe. He's written only a handful of books, but his contributions have been pretty notable: He is responsible …

Hyperion
Just finished the series. Absolutely epic reads. The last two are definitely inferior to the first two books, but Simmons does a nice job coming full circle at the end and answering some of the mysteries …

Hyperion
I’m slowly working through The Fall of Hyperion by Dan Simmons, and I feel it’s appropriate to revisit the first book, Hyperion, before I review the second book. First off, I …

Sawyer has done an excellent job of reworking prior ideas revolving around artificial intelligence from his prior books and taking them in a whole new direction. The Webmind was created from "rogue" computer …

Hyperion
   I am one of the few people who don't see to love the Hyperion series.  This first in the series is pretty solid but overall I find the entire series disjointed and uneven.

I loved this when it first came out but I don't think it has held up as well as other books from the time.

The Stonehenge Gate      by Jack Williamson I was disappointed. The book revolves around four poker loving friends who discover a mostly buried set of stone trilithons similar to …

Star Wars: Red Harvest
I read Joe Schreiber's Star Wars:  Death Troopers just a few weeks ago. I find it quite ironic that I've now been given the opportunity to read and review an advanced copy …

Star Wars: Red Harvest
   Years ago, in the long lonely days after Return of the Jedi but long before The Phantom Menace, I was a Star Wars book nut.  I recall being particularly fond of the “Tales of” …

Time Travelers Never Die
A wonderful romp backwards -- and forwards -- through time. Imagine . . . traveling back in time to eh Great Library of Alexandria!

Not as good as "Ender's Game" but certainly worth a read.

A very different feel than "Ender's game", but great on it's own.

Falling Free
Falling Free and Komarr are Bujold's two most scientific stories. Her father was an engineer and it shows.

Falling Free
Formulaic. This is the best way to describe the disappointing Falling Free, which is predictable from page one. The basic plot line should sound familiar: Multiuniversal (as opposed to multinational) …

This is a very entertainng read - well constructed and thought out science fiction which ranks it up there with "Dune" and "Ender's Game". What is particularly appealing is the way each character unfolds …
