Autumn Adventures

My retreat from the post-Amazon-apocalypse-GoodReads. My shelves and my reviews, I hope, will find a safe haven here.


I like to read epic fantasy (the bigger, thicker and longer, the better) and science fiction (perfer space operas).  I also enjoy the occasional biography or history non-fiction.


Out in the real world, I'm an IT professional in the Legal industry.  Tech doesn't scare me or phase me.

Hammered (Iron Druid Chronicles, #3)

The Shining Company - Rosemary Sutcliff Well written historical fiction told from the point of view of a shieldbearer (similar to a squire) of one of the Shining Company (similar in purpose to the Spartan Three Hundred, but not used as nobly or as effectively). Prosper, the protaganist shieldbearer (i.e. narrator), grew up fast during this story and came to be rueful maturity in one of the most heartbreaking crucible battles I've ever read. Beautiful prose and vivid (almost heart-pounding) hunt and battle scenes. Occasionally interspersed with young adult angst and innocence.
