The Last Hunter (The Last Hunter #1) by JN Chaney and Terry Mixon Book Review 01, Nov

I'm a big fan of JN Chaney and I've made it a point to plan to read Terry Mixon's big space opera books. I'm a space opera writer myself and I've heard nothing but good things about both writers. Still, there's always the question of where to begin with an author who has an extensive library. In both authors' case, they have quite a few series out. So, in the end, I decided to try THE LAST HUNTER based on the laziest of all methods: I really like the cover. I love the fancy uniform of the protagonist with its big shoulder epaulets.

Interstellar Gunrunner (Interstellar Gunrunner #1) by James Wolanyk Book Review 25, Oct


INTERSTELLAR GUNRUNNER by James Wolanyk is something that has been recommended on my feed for some time. Indeed, for years, right under THE RULES OF SUPERVILLAINY it was always being told to me that it was something I might like. The problem was there was always something else in the queue and it wasn't like I didn't have a bunch of other space opera books to read ahead of it. Still, I remembered the title and when I saw the book trilogy was on sale for 99c, I decided to jump at it and picked up a copy. Here's my review of the first book, Interstellar Gunrunner, that is the first book of...the Interstellar Gunrunner trilogy. Which is how all trilogies should be titled.

Second Self (Star Trek: Picard #4) by Una McCormack Book Review 17, Oct

STAR TREK: PICARD is something of a broken base for me. It's one of my all-time favorite time periods in the Star Trek chronology for the world-building set up in Season One: the Romulan supernova, the Synthetic Ban, the destruction of Mars, and the lawlessness of the former Neutral Zone. However, the simple fact is that Season Two had no interest in any of this and thus I must turn to secondary canon in order to get my fill. So far, I've very much enjoyed all of the books in the setting but just wish for more. MOAR.
