Republic

by Charles Sheehan-Miles

Great. I enjoyed the novel. It's the story about what can happen when US government in the pursuit of terrorism ties down the civil liberties and changes America into a police state. Movement for freedom in West Virginia steers the state into the secession from US federation and into a civil war. Many different characters appear and storylines of their lives are told along the way to the end. Fear, rage, love, sadness, hopelessness, hope ... there is just everything.

(Nothing But) Flowers

by John G. McDaid

Interesting but sad short story. At the end you will get what it's all about. Or maybe not :)

Spell of Catastrophe

by Mayer Alan Brenner

Not a bad book but ... First half was written very good. Toward the end it has become mediocre and maybe even boring. Last third seemed like author couldn't decide weather to write in first person or in third person. The part about how to name the (first person) storyteller was especially ridiculous ;) Also the whole story itself wasn't very consistent throughout the book. The second part will hopefully be better. It has the potential.
