Blood Lite II: Overbite (2010)
language
English
series
3.67 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I'd heard Edward Bryant read his story, "Bad German," and when I heard this collection had it, I just had to check it out. I'm not a huge one for reading the normal stuff classified as horror fiction anymore, but I did have a good time reading this. I liked some stories more th...
Hair Raising (2013)
language
English
3.85 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Same punny humor, and less obviously/allegorically political than the last entrant in the series. Still solidly episodic, although the world is steadily building enough recurring characters to develop a greater sense of continuity. Anderson isn't Pratchett (no one is), but he isn...
Nebula Awards Showcase 2011 (2011)

English
series

review 1: AS is usual with these collections mostly good stories with a couple of iffy stories and a couple of excellent ones. The issue as always with Science fiction collections is that it covers such a broad range of sub-genres fantasy, steam-punk, dystopias etc and it is therefore unl...
Blood Lite III: Aftertaste (2012)

review 1: Blood Lite III is a great collection of humorous horror, absolutely PACKED with fiction (30 stories in all!) Some of my favorite were:Blood-Red Greens by Joel A. Sutherland. This story follows two senior golf buddies who take their weekly golf game VERY seriously, even after the ...

review 1: Once again, Kevin Anderson explores a world that has released the dark-side creatures of the night. Vampires, Ghosts, Poltergeist (a ghost that can manipulate objects), werewolves, witches, and all sorts of monsters, ready to be investigated by Zombie Private Eye, Dan Chambeaux ...
Death Warmed Over (2012)

English

review 1: I admit, I only started reading this because it was a Free Friday selection for my Nook, but I'm soooo glad I did. If you're looking for something light and just a little bit silly, this is for you. It's set in a New Orleans where 1 out of every 75 deaths results in "reanimation,...
Blood Lite (2008)

English
series

review 1: I had never heard of most of the authors in this anthology and picked up the book solely for Sherrilyn Kenyon's contribution. I read her section first and found it okay (definitely not her best by a long shot). The story was so short that there was really no time to really delve ...
The Map of All Things (2010)
language
English
3.82 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: A bit duller than the first novel, but that's to be expected as this is the second act and thus the dreaded "travel where you need to be" gets full attention. A few of the characters seem to simply be there to exist until a future date, and I fear that some of the side stories h...
The Key to Creation (2011)
language
English
3.74 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Tant qu'a avoir lu les deux premiers livres, j'étais aussi bien prêt à lire la suite.Je n'ai pas grand chose à dire de plus sur ce livre, à part qu'il est aussi intense que le deuxième sinon un peu plus, que l'auteur ne nous laisse aucune questions non répondu, que la guerre esca...
Clockwork Angels (2012)
language
English
3.61 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Of course I picked up this book because I'm a Rush fan. Guess what: I was disappointed.Many characters seemed so underdeveloped to me - what's the fun of reading fiction if they are not complex or ambiguous enough to keep you hooked on the attempt to flesh them out? Owen looks as...
Dark Between the Stars, The (2014)
language
English

review 1: This guy is a prolific writer. I imagine he writes a thousand page novel before breakfast. I love that I can pick up one of his books and know that it is going to be a solid read.The Dark Between the Stars continues the story that was laid out in the Saga of the Seven Suns. In th...
Enemies and Allies (2009)
language
English
3.65 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Honestly, this book is very 'meh.' It's truly mediocre at best. As I read more and more of this book I was more and more put off by it, I finished it based on accomplishment of completion and giving the book the benefit of the doubt that one day it would get good; that day did no...
Resurrection, Inc. (1988)
language
English
3.53 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I liked a lot of the social issues that the book brought up in the first half about the possibility of resurrecting the dead in the first place, having robots (or in this case 'servants') take over menial jobs to 'allow humans more time to think,' and the abuse o power by religio...

review 1: Put together an eclectic collection of Nebula award winning short stories and novelettes, as well as a full length novella selected by Kevin J Anderson and you know you’re in for a treat. Each story is distinct in its style, but what all of them have in common is that they are we...

review 1: This short novella fits between Book 1 & 2.Zombie PI Dan Shamble and his ghost girlfriend go to the circus after a fortune teller calls them because his magical deck of cards has been stolen. Dan's a good detective and he doesn't let his zombie status slow him down, so he's on th...
