The Executioner's Heart (2013)

review 1: I have never found anything to complain about in this series. They are so fluid and fun. I am on the edge of my seat for the next one, for sure. I think I kind of ruined steampunk for myself, though, by starting with George Mann.. Now every other steampunk story I read just pales...

review 1: While I prefer steampunk as a genre to hard fantasy, I am coming to realize that's damning with faint praise. That is to say, I don't prefer it by much. This book reminds me why. While set in a semi-plausible past (sorry, I simply don't buy that a Victorian woman would have the k...

review 1: The editor finds pastiches slightly insulting to Conan Doyle. However,for those of us who can't get enough of the Master, we are highly appreciative of new stories. Especially ones which come close to capturing his essence. Each story in this collection must be judged accordin...

review 1: I really did enjoy this book more than I thought I would; it had a nice pulp style to it which made it fun to read; the Ghost struck me as a low rent Shadow and I say that in a good way because he is not a perfect avenger of the night (he get beat up a lot in this book; he tires ...
Affinity Bridge (2008)

review 1: Rollicking good steampunk rubbish, but lacks the cultural relevance to be really absorbing. I think the biggest fault I find with steampunk as a genre is its failure to use the most powerful tool sci-fi and fantasy have at their disposal - the ability to hold a mirror up to the m...
Osiris Ritual (2012)

review 1: A decidedly average book. The writing was lacking, and although I rarely complain about it there was a great deal of telling rather than showing, as we are always told exactly what everyone thinks to a situation or person and never left to develop our own impressions, which also ...
