The People of the Crater

by Andre Norton

I wouldn't classify this story as terrible. I suppose the best word I can find to describe it is immature. It is told more as a narrative like the old HG Wells novels, and as such it has no real driving force. Also, there are lots of coincidences and assumptions that make it seem like it was plotted by a high school student. Other than that, I would say it's a fair read.

The American hero is sucked into an underworld where he must rescue the princess and destroy the villain. A tired old tale with little new to offer.

The Penal Cluster

by Gordon Randall Garrett

What an incredibly amateurish piece of literature. The characters, the plot, the writing - just everything seems rather haphazardly thrown together.

The Peacemaker

by Alfred Coppel

This is not so much a story as a historical narration (fictional, of course), and as such it fails to have any real drive to it. Worth a read, but keep expectations low.

Pellucidar

by Edgar Rice Burroughs

This is just another old-time adventure story. Unfortunately, I found this one so boring that I gave up after two chapters.

Author of the Day

J.T. Brannan
When J.T. Brannan started writing a book about a "secret agent" doing a job for the US government, he had no idea that this was going to be the start of a bestselling series. Today, his Mark Cole books are extremely popular and Brannan a full-time writer (when he isn't teaching martial arts).
