The universally understood reference in the title of Edgar Cantero’s newest novel stands in juxtaposition to the gritty and realistic nature of the story within, where we see our heroes 10-years on, dealing with PTSD and disillusionment. I couldn't put this book down!

Published: Iron Circus Comics - April 18th, 2017

An exceptional sci-fi comics anthology about first contact, culture clash, and colonialism, from a small indie comics publisher, addressing issues of representation with uniquely fun anthologies. New Worlds is a standout, where new and established talents push the genre of science fiction to do what it does best: show us who we are and who we can aspire to be.

National borders have been eliminated in favor of centenals, geographical groupings of every 100,000 citizens who vote every ten years. The corporate party Heritage holds the majority, but the system may be upended by idealistic Policy1st--or warmongering Liberty, a party playing on old nationalist tensions. I have never been so fascinated by the innards of a fictional election. Complex and compelling.

Seveneves is so much more than science fiction set in space. It feels preparatory, as Stephenson tends to spend a lot time on the technicalities of orbital mechanics, but Stephenson also makes it clear what would really matter in such a catastrophic situation. Political and philosophical existentialism with a great narrative. It is compellingly readable  (in the way you would think a story about the moon blowing up and humanity ending would be).

Six crew members wake into regenerated bodies after being murdered on a generation ship heading to a new planet. Their memories and logs from the last twenty-five years have been wiped, but they know this: One of them is the killer - and whoever it is may not even know it. This murder mystery is the literary equivalent of that scene in Butch Cassidy where he and Sundance leap off a cliff, swearing the whole way. A heart-pounding sci fi thriller.

Think Ridley Scott's Prometheus meets The Day The Earth Stood Still. Okay, so those are movies, but that's how incredibly real and scarily tangible this book is (and it will be adapted to film). I fell in head first, so will you, and if you pick it up today and finish it tonight, don't worry, the second installment is out in April!

Published: Night Shade Books - June 7th, 2016

The first in a new series of the Chronicles of St Mary. I could dismiss this as "Connie Willis lite" but it's such wild engaging fun that the comparison doesn't matter.  A time traveling adventure full of mad brave historians, some romance and a few laughs thrown in; it deserves to be a huge hit and your new addiction.
