Reviews by JoJo Biggins


by H. Beam Piper

A pretty good story. Interesting, but not intriguing. Characters are pretty good, but not deep.

Terrans try to figure out how to communicate with aliens that just don\'t seem to hear things the way all other sentient beings do.

My Own Kind of Freedom

by Steven Brust

A highly engaging story with lots of action and intrigue. Well written, good characterization, and a good plot. However, there is an annoying use of Asian (Chinese?) phrases with frequency, however the phrases are never explained. Also, one of the main characters, who has a lot of interesting quirks and special abilities, is never fully explained. Overall, quite a good tale.

A team of traders with former military experience get wound up in a local corruption case, and things go from bad to worse to worse. Lots of intrigue, lots of jumping to backstory, and lots of military jargon.

My Friend Bobby

by Alan Nourse

I have to give this story 4 stars because it is so well done. However, I don\'t like the darkness of it, with no redeeming light. Also, the ending is way too open for my liking.

A telepathic boy and his telepathic dog have extreme parent troubles.

Mother America

by Sam McClatchie

It doesn\'t get much cheesier than this, folks. The author injects artificial space-themed jargon at every turn to make this seem like a futuristic story. If you can\'t predict the ending by the halfway point, you must be half asleep.

In a society where pregnancies are controlled by geneticists, a couple decides to go against the grain.
