Book Review: Empire of Bones

Standard

Hey Space Cadets, here is the next installment in my series of book reviews. I’ve read this book several times, but I decided to re-read it and write a review of the first book in a series that I love. I probably won’t review the rest of the series in this level of detail, but I wanted to give you some insight into a series that I know and love. I’ve listened to the audiobook as well, on all of the mediums I’ve enjoyed this story is amazing! Now that I’m writing more reviews, I wanted to share a series that is near and dear to my heart with you! But enough about me, onto this review. Now let’s get to it!  Continue reading

Book Review: The Expanding Universe, Volume 4 Part 2

Standard

Outer Space Header

Hey Space Cadets, how’re you doing?  I’m sorry for the delay in posting the second half of this review – our house has been hit with that nasty cold virus going around our area. I’ve still managed to get some writing done. Here is the second half of my last book review. This review was also a discussion on the Sci-Fi Shenanigans Podcast, which has already dropped. I’ve reviewed a few short stories here that didn’t make it onto the podcast. If my co-host also writes a blog with his thoughts on this collection, I will share here as well. It should be fun to see two different reactions to the same stories.

But enough dallying, on to the review!  Continue reading

Book Review: The Expanding Universe, Volume 4

Outer Space Header

Hey Space Cadets, how’re you doing?  I’m good, busy with the usual shenanigans of life. My oldest, who is 11, is telling me he is a pre-teen. Clearly a lie, I am NOT old enough for that so there must be some computing error. I’m still writing, with some publications coming out in the coming months. I’ve determined that I’m too slow of an author with too crazy a life for the churn model Amazon favors, so I will just publish and hope for the best. I’ve been writing more book reviews lately, as you’ve seen and wanted to share what I recently finished. Here is the next installment in my series of book reviews. This review was also a discussion on the Sci-Fi Shenanigans Podcast, which has already dropped. I’ve reviewed a few short stories here that didn’t make it onto the podcast. If my co-host also writes a blog with his thoughts on this collection, I will share here as well. It should be fun to see two different reactions to the same stories.

But enough dallying, on to the review!  Continue reading

Standard

Hey Space Cadets, how are you doing?  I’m doing well; reading, writing, and doing the dreaded adulting.

Hey Space Cadets, how’re you doing?  I’m good, working on finalizing the edits on a short story and starting writing my super secret book. Meanwhile, I’m still reading and wanted to share what I’ve enjoyed lately.

Beyond the Shenanigans: Felix R Savage

Standard

 

Hey, Space Cadets, how are you doing this fine day?  I’m doing great, had an awesome walk and trying to get back into the routine of healthy living. Hopefully, life cooperates so I can continue my exercise routine, but ultimately family first.  I’m at chapter 80 of 88 with book four, which doesn’t yet have a name.  I intentionally keep my wife and kids in the backdrop, since they deserve their privacy and anonymity.  However, if you’ve read this blog you’ll know that my wife is recovering from a car accident and my son is having a tough go of it. I know this book should’ve been finished two months ago, but I trust you’ll forgive my tardiness. Continue reading
