Freedom Incorporated

by Peter Tylee

Great near-future thriller about the takeover by mega-companies and globalization. My only warning is there is a very graphic rape scene described by one of the characters. Also, other depictions of gory violence and language. If you can get past this, the story is a rip-roaring page turner.

The Creature from Cleveland Depths

by Fritz Reuter Leiber, Jr.

Cocktails, doomsday and capes. Yet, he writes a subtle commentary about how technology controls our lives. You might not look at your smartphone the same way again. Slow at the start, but a smashing ending.

The Shunned House

by H.P. Lovecraft

One of the drier of Lovecraft's works. Delves deeply into the history of a 'Shunned House.' Bad things occur, of course.

...After a Few Words...

by Gordon Randall Garrett

Have you ever read a genre story only to discover it was another genre? This is a brief character study of the great crusades disguised as science fiction. I was a little disappointed by the twist but the historical writing was good.
