Old Man’s War
John Scalzi Completed 8/11/2018, Reviewed 8/12/2018 4 stars I’m coming to realize I really like John Scalzi’s
writing.   He creates interesting
universes and produces space opera that’s easy to read, something I don’t find
too often in this sub-genre.   And...

Ilario: The Lion’s Eye
Mary Gentle Completed 8/8/2018, Reviewed 8/9/2018 2 stars I really struggled with this book.   It took me eight days to read a 322 page book,
which is a long time for me.   I didn’t care
for the plot, and many times, it devolved into soapiness.   It’s a sha...

Fuzzy Nation
John Scalzi Completed 7/31/2018, Reviewed 8/1/2018 5 stars I had some hesitation going into this reboot of the Little
Fuzzy series because I loved it so much.   In retrospect, I think I should have rated
them higher than I did.   Because of this
I had a lit...

City of Stairs
Robert Jackson Bennett Completed 7/29/2018, Reviewed 7/29/2018 4 stars This self-contained first book of a trilogy is a very
satisfying book indeed.   The world
building is phenomenal.   It creates a
world with a pantheon of six divinities which created a c...

City
Clifford D. Simak Completed 7/21/2018, Reviewed 7/21/2018 3 stars I love Clifford D. Simak’s writing.   He’s known as writing “pastoral” science
fiction, where there is an emphasis on rural settings and characters.   This collection of related short stories...

Fuzzy Sapiens
H. Beam Piper Completed 7/15/2018, Reviewed 7/15/2018 3 stars This is the sequel to “Little Fuzzy”.   It begins right after the previous book
ends.   It’s better written than the first
book, but the story is not quite as interesting.   It’s still a quick re...

Little Fuzzy
H. Beam Piper Completed 7/14/2018, Reviewed 7/15/2018 4 stars Little Fuzzy is a classic about the definition of sentient
life.   It was nominated for a Hugo back
in 1963.   The first paragraph has a lot
of technical jargon, but it is not hard science fictio...

The Northern Girl
Elizabeth A. Lynn Completed 7/14/2018, Reviewed 7/14/2018 4 stars This is the third of a trilogy, though the books somewhat
standalone, similar to Lois McMasters Bujold’s World of the Five Gods
series.   I read this book because it has
lesbian content altho...

The Invisible Library
Genevieve Cogman Completed 7/7/2018, Reviewed 7/7/2018 3 stars Books about books and libraries are always fun.   This one is no exception.   The Invisible Library is about a librarian
who travels to alternate dimensions to find rare books, books that only e...
