Reviews by Gilmartin


I didn't especially like this book: the premise is interesting and the writing is good; it is well thought-out. Unfortunately from my own point of view, it straddles the line between science-fiction and science-fantasy and the fantasy parts of it detracted from the narrative.
Don't let this put you off. The book is worth reading and if you enjoy fantastical literature, you will like this a lot.

The Gospel of the Knife

by Will Shetterly

Enjoyable enough, this book does not in any way live up to the promise of the first few chapters which beautifully evoke a time and place (late 60s America) with believable and likeably flawed characters before descending into sub-Dan Brown conspiracy fantasies.

Geek Mafia: Mile Zero

by Rick Dakan

Good but not as good as the first one, which is not so much of a criticism given how much I enjoyed that. The same quirky characters return for a complex tale of double-crossing duplicity and technology.

Hope there will be more in this series.

Geek Mafia

by Rick Dakan

Enjoyable, well-written fluff, a sort of modern "caper" novel set in the high-tech world of silicon valley. Fresh and interesting with likeable characters who live on the edges of society.
