  • Wonder Woman '77. by Andreyko, Marc,
    ★★★☆☆

    The tone and style is on point, but the low quality of the villains (a problem that plagues most WW titles) drags it down.

  • Supervolcano : eruption by Turtledove, Harry.
    ★★★★★

    Real characters, a believable setting, no fantastical escapes or suppositions, all together another fine work form Harry Turtledove.

  • Cowboy Angels by McAuley, Paul J.
    ★★★★☆

    McAuley's novel pulls a Reece's -  two great tastes that taste great together. Its an unusual pairing considering the paradoxes involved with each and the narrative problems that they create, but the problems are handled well and woven into the story naturally enough not to be boringly expository.
    The multiverse he creates is original enough to be distinct without being pointlessly, flippantly 'different'.
    The only quibble I have is with the number of 'bad guys' - I'm not sure if there are a few to many or if they are not fleshed out enough, but to me they seemed to blend together and cause some confusion - altogether a minor problem with an enjoyable tale.

  • Scarecrow returns by Reilly, Matthew.
    ★★★★★

    Big, Stupid-smart, and fast, just like all of his novels. SR starts fast and ends faster, and regardless of the ridiculous corners he paints his characters into Reilly always finds an at least semi-plauable way to pull them out without relying on Deus Ex Machina contrivances.

  • Raylan by Leonard, Elmore,
    ★☆☆☆☆

    Disappointing in every sense. This book reads like old people tell stories, rambling, jammed together, repetitive, disjointed - take your pick. Three short stories that would have been better half a dozen years ago when their plots were still trite and not yet hackneyed, strung together for no discernible reason, and all made worse by the shoehorned-in comments of characters referring to events from 3 pages ago to make them seem more connected.

    If you like Elmore Leonard or the TV series, avoid  this exploitative piece of crap at all costs.

  • Wild thing : a novel by Bazell, Josh.
    ★★★★★

    Like with his first novel, I went in to this one blind and was blown away. Having no expectations or foreknowledge made every twist that much more exciting. An easily readable style combined with entertaining factual digressions and a wry sense of humor similar to that found in the best writings on the website 'Cracked', I am eagerly awaiting more from Bazell.
