Been a bit since I had a chance to post here. I have been invited to be an official reviewer for two 'zines that focus on fantasy, steampunk, horror, dark fantasy, urban fantasy and paranormal.

The 'zines also post interviews with various authors ranging from Lilith Saintcrow to other urban fantasy authors and the zines post free short… Continue

I loved this book. Dark Desires after Dusk is the 6th book in the Immortals after dark series. This is so far my favorite out of the bunch. Cade is great. he is a sexy demon mess and Holly is his fated ocd mate. Holly is a human and humans can not be with demons cause they may not survive the claiming during sex. Holly avoided everything that involes sex/ or anger or anyhting really. She was attackted by a bad group of demons and found out she was half Valkyrie and now is considered to be a… Continue

Human Services: Elimination of Evil
Author: John Rislove
We all know the terrible toll, financial and otherwise, that repeat offenders take on our lives, financially and emotionally. Daily, we read and hear about a person with a long criminal record, known for violence, being released from prision only to reoffend, usually in a horrible manner, only to return to jail again. Over and over, the pattern repeats itself, with heartbreaking results and impact to society and victims… Continue

Filled with rich imagery, I was… Continue

What a great idea! When I looked at my library I realised that a number of my favourite reads were essentially banned at some point in history. Lysistrata, Canterbury Tales, Fanny Hill and Moll Flanders come immediately to mind. I would have to add the Age of Reason and The rights of man. I'd love to see what others put down.

I thought this was a fun book. It was easy to read and laugh-out loud funny in places. Each chapter is told, first-person, by one of the club members. I'm not a regular television watcher and I don't watch reality-television at all, so I have no comparison to the descriptions and experiences of the club members. However, a reality show about cooking groups competing against each other was an interesting premise. The story is Christian, but not… Continue

Written in a most unusual style; I found this book to be a real winner. The author, writing as our narrator and hero, Andrew Nowak, uses the language (profanity and poor grammar) that we would expect from a stoner and aimless drifter. I thought that was a great touch, although it did make it a bit more difficult at first. It just took me a little time to get into the style of the writing, but once I did, it added realism and a certain sort of grace to the story and the character.

THE PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN
I’m about halfway through The Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man , it is the prequel to Ulysses and I couldn’t suggest strongly enough to read it first!! I, lacking the intellectual capacity to fully enjoy Ulysses, would have benefited greatly from reading this book first. Now I look back on some of my interpretations of Ulysses as entirely wrong (I.e. the reason why Stephen wouldn’t kneel at his… Continue
