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.

Masters of Fantasy - Bill Fawcett, Brian M. Thomsen, Jeff Easlty Average Rating: 3.58 starsBest Bets: 'Child of Prophecy' by Janny Wurts (4.5 stars); 'Shadamehr and the Old Wive's Tale' by Weis and Perrin (4.0 stars); and, 'Serenade' by Alan Dean Foster (3.5 stars). The most confusing story of the bunch for me was 'Afterlife of St. Vidicom of Cathode', and perhaps it's a failing of mine for never reading a novel in Christopher Stasheff's Warlock universe. See my comments attached to my status updates (below) for slightly more information, thoughts and reactions to individual stories. A masterful fantasy collection of short stories in various established universes by well-known authors of the genre. I definitely recommend it to round out your reading repertoire for these authors.
