The Experimental Notebook of C. S. BoyackThe Experimental Notebook of C. S. Boyack by C.S. Boyack
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I found this anthology to be very entertaining. The author’s stories were all well written. There were several that really grabbed my attention, 50 Gallons and Bombshell Squad, to name two. C. S. Boyack is underrated writer and I look forward to reading more of his work – especially Wild Concept. I had fun with the whole anthology. You won’t go wrong with this book of short stories. Boyack hit it out of the park!

RoguesRogues by George R.R. Martin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A good collection of short fiction from top authors. The book covered a wide range of entertaining rogues as its theme. I would have preferred the anthology to be only speculative fiction in nature but I found a few of the real-world stories to be entertaining. The anthology was well edited but I would have also rather seen a story from Martin that was a bit different than a history of a GOT backstory. While informative about the history of the Seven Kingdoms in GOT it was rather dry and distant.

The Gypsy Morph (Genesis of Shannara #3)The Gypsy Morph by Terry Brooks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a tense tale with several gripping scenes. A great effort from Brooks that had me turning pages late into the night. Read and enjoy.

On Basilisk Station (Honor Harrington, #1)On Basilisk Station by David Weber
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I never really read much military Sci-Fi until I picked up this book. Weber spun a good tale around the back-drop of setting as Honor Harrington is assigned to captain her first ship at a back-water location. The science and military aspects of the book are well-detailed and tightly woven into the plot. Honor is a well-written main character. Overall, I read this book well after bedtime for several nights and I found it very entertaining.

This was a great read that I’ve enjoyed several times over the years. It’s hard to go wrong with Gemmell in general if you’re in the mood for old-fashioned fantasy adventure. Read and enjoy!
