Review: "Freedom (TM)" by Daniel Suarez

Last year, Daniel Suarez's "Daemon" left us on one heck of a cliffhanger. Now, "Freedom (TM)" picks up that cliffhanger, resolves it and delves even further into a scary but all too possible near future in which a computer bot can seemingly take over the world. In terms of story and characters, "Freedom (TM)" picks […]

Review: "Horns" by Joe Hill

"Horns" starts with two of the most ingenious opening paragraphs I've read in a long while about Ignatius Perrish waking up from having spent the night before doing horrible things and getting ready to do a lot more. Also, Ig (as he's called) has a pair of horns growing out of his head. Joe Hill […]

Review: "Star Trek: Inception"

"Star Trek" novels (and media tie-in novels in general) walk a very fine line when it comes to revisiting familiar elements from their original source material.    This can especially be true when it comes to giving the details behind the romantic liaisons of various character that took place off screen but are referenced and alluded […]

Werewolves To Meet Little Women

The idea of mixing supernatural monsters with classic (and public domain) pieces of literature has proved to be a smashing success in the publishing world. First we had the instant classic "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" and last month saw the release of "Sense and Sensibility and Seamonsters." But apparently the classic monsters weren't content […]

Review: The Walls of the Universe

I really, really liked Paul Melko's "The Walls of the Universe." The problem is I wanted to love it. The first third of the novel unfolds at a breathless pace as we meet John Rayburn and his double from a parallel universe, John Prime. Prime has come to John's universe with a device that allows […]

Review: WWW: Wake

Good science fiction speculates on things that are theoretically possible given some of the conditions and advances of our current level of technology. In many cases, the advances may be years or decades away from becoming reality, but in the case of Robert J. Sawyer's new novel, "WWW: Wake," part of his speculated future has […]

Review: "The Strain" by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan

Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan originally conceived “The Strain” as a serialized television series for the Fox network. After Fox execs balked at the original vision, insisting the writers inject more humor into the storyline of a modern-day vampire apocolypse, del Toro and Hogan decided to take their toys and go home. Rather than create a movie version of this modern day retelling of “Dracula,” the two decided to go literary.   [Read more...]
