Parallel Visions: City of Angels City of Demons ebook and trade paperback available on Amazon (or here).
The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there.

November 2014[edit]







See my review of Ancillary Justice (2013) by Ann Leckie here.  (e)
It's great when I run across a novel like Sandstorm (2004) by James Rollins that captures some of the elements of fantastic I found in Doc Savage novels that drew me into pulp adventure fiction. ... Warning: This is a work in progress. -- Fritz.  (e)
I wanted to like The Rook: A Novel (2012) by Daniel O'Malley, but I never engaged with the main character and found the humor strained. ...Warning: This is a work in progress. -- Fritz.  (e)

The Jennifer Morgue (2006) by Charles Stross was a great mix of SF, horror, and James Bond thriller, all done with a sharp awareness of tropes and an excellent explanation for their use. ... Warning: This is a work in progress. -- Fritz.  (e)

Childhood's End (cover).jpg
I liked Childhood's End well enough, but I didn't buy one of the main plot points (and is the reason that I'm not making Childhood's End a Novel Pick (category) (e)), namely that once the children started to transform into the super-mind and all the adults just gave up and choose to have no more children. I know that humanity had matured after the Overlords had arrived, but I just couldn't believe that everyone, absolutely every adult on the planet, would simply choose to die (either directly or indirectly) and that no one would try to have more children. But that's the decision / plot point that had to be to make it to the ending that Clarke wanted. (e)
