When the Sleeper Wakes

by H.G. Wells

Starts well, sags in the middle, and kind of loses its way towards the end. As far as Wells' books go, this is not one of his best, but still worth reading.

G.O.D.

by Jay Lake

As one reviewer points out, this is senseless. I'd go further to say it's unadulterated rubbish. Word-painting and nothing more. Void and avoid.

There Will Be School Tomorrow

by V.E. Thiessen

Neat little pulp sci-fi, but weakened by having the horror (as one reviewer points out) done off-stage. Would liked to have seen that part in the story. Let down by poor writing, and the dialogue is stilted in places, but still a good read. Nice little twist that adds a chill at the end.

Solander's Radio Tomb

by Ellis Parker Butler

I enjoyed this for it's tongue-in-cheek humour and the ending made me smile.

Author of the Day

Alexander McNabb
When Alexander McNabb stopped smoking, he had to find something constructive to do with his hands - so he started writing. His debut novel Olives - A Violent Romance, sparked a lot of controversy in the Middle East because of his use of common family names and because it contained themes such as drinking alcohol, sex before marriage etc. So he followed it with Beirut, in which there’s booze aplenty, sex, gambling, murder, violence and general mayhem. As our Author of the Day, McNabb chats about his love for the Middle East, why his books always deal with politics, democratic values and religion and reveals what music he listens to while writing.
