05, Nov

I've read the first two novellas in this series before, and was looking forward to spending some more time in Penric's unique world.

The Haunting of Tram Car 015 (Fatma el-Sha’arawi) by P. Djèlí Clark - Book Review
01, Nov

I love the mix of historical fantasy and am fascinated by Middle Eastern cultures, so jumped on this as soon as I heard about it. 

A Troll Walks into a Bar: A Noir Urban Fantasy Novel by Douglas Lumsden - Book Review
26, Oct

Considering my love of detective stories, especially noir, hard-boiled types, and urban fantasy it wasn't a big surprise I jumped right on this.

Battle Ground (The Dresden Files #17) by Jim Butcher - Book Review
10, Oct

I've read the first half of this story (see my review of Peace Talks) back in July, and of course I jumped straight into this novel as soon as it came out.

Forgotten Peoples of the Ancient World by Philip Matyszak - Book Review
18, Sep

Matyszak is one of my favourite popular historians (because archaeologists and historians are much more deserving of celebrity culture than actual celebrities), and I loved previous books of his. This books offers a review of people and nations you've probably heard of in passing, and promises to give you a deeper understanding of those forgotten people and their impact on later generations.

08, Sep

I've read the previous novel (Sixteen Ways to Defend a Walled City) just recently, and there was just no doubt I'd read this one as soon as it comes out.

Elric of Melniboné (The Elric Saga #1) by Michael Moorcock - Book Review
21, Aug

I've been in the mood for some classic SF/F lately, and since I've been meaning to re-read the Elric saga this seemed like the perfect, timely choice.

The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress by Robert A. Heinlein - Book Review
08, Aug

I read most of Heinlein's work years ago, and was in the mood for some classic Sci-Fi. This work has aged well, and makes it clear why he was a grandmaster story-teller.
