The road less traveled — my particular notion of gathered culture, perspective and information — Eclectic meanderings of nonsense and spiritual musings.

I terrifically enjoyed reading this awesome sci-fi nail-biter and what sets The Martian apart is less its characters, though, than its technical flavor. It is very much a hard science fiction read, with science and technology firmly rooted in today’s readability. And understandable by any reader. Our main character Watney’s narrative isn’t afraid to delve […]

One of the great novels of my youth. Excellent story and marvelous adventure…nothing like the old Tarzan movies. If you’ve ever seen one. This is the actual paperback cover of the edition I read as a young whippersnapper. (Google it…) You can read the complete “Son Of Tarzan” online as well as tons of other […]

This first fantasy novel by science fiction troubadour Julie Czerneda, A Turn Of Light, slips the reader into complete wonder. Julie has always entertained us in truly immense ways with her stories of far yonder places in science fiction. This one truly shines as a fantasy debut. It is the “coming of age” story of […]

In this first collaboration by science fiction masters Larry Niven (Ringworld) and Gregory Benford (Timescape), the limits of wonder are redrawn once again as a human expedition to another star system is jeopardized by an encounter with an astonishingly immense artifact in interstellar space: a bowl-shaped structure half-englobing a star, with a habitable area equivalent […]

No one wanted to settle the nameless planet covered by seven levels of steaming tropical forest. A human colony ship wound up orbiting it by mistake, giving the stranded passengers no other option except to land and try their best to survive. A few of them had children. Now, several hundred years later, their forest […]
