Columbus Day (Expeditionary Force #1) by Craig Alanson Book Review 24, May


COLUMBUS DAY (EXPEDITIONARY FORCE #1) by Craig Alanson is the first volume of a truly fantastic, if disjointed, series about mankind's first encounter with aliens as well as how our attempts to be heroic fighters against invaders end up utterly failing. Well, at least until one Staff Sergeant manages to find a beer can-shaped ancient AI that can put his utterly insane plans into effect to save us all.

Against All Odds (Grimm's War #1) by Jeffrey Haskell Book Review 17, May


AGAINST ALL ODDS by Jeffrey Haskell is a military science fiction/space opera story that I absolutely loved. There’s a huge amount of science fiction available on Kindle Unlimited but I’ll be the first to admit that quite a bit of it isn’t great. As the old saying goes, everyone can be an author but only a few people can be a good author. Well, Jeffrey Haskell manages to slide into the latter category and this is a really good first time effort (though he has a lot of experience as a journalist, explaining the work’s quality).

No Man's Land (Star Trek: Picard #4) by Kirsten Beyer and Mike Johnson Book Review 06, May


STAR TREK: PICARD: NO MAN'S LAND is a audio drama that is about an hour and a half long as well as primarily done by Michelle Hurd alongside Jeri Ryan. There are plenty of other cast members, though, and it is written by Star Trek mainstay Kirsten Beyer. It is something I immediately bought despite not liking audio dramas generally and much-preferring the printed page or more traditional audiobooks.
