Reviews by Matthew McClintock

Unwise Child

by Gordon Randall Garrett

Not the most sophisticated of tales, but entertaining -- a bit of robotics, some hero-worship, a little romance, and a murder; it's all sewn up nice and neat by the end.

The Four Just Men

by Edgar Wallace

Pretty lame. Not badly written, for pulp, but the story doesn't really give you much of a ride. Seems kind of pompous, windy, and the "shocking conclusion" at the end is tame. Blah

Agent to the Stars

by John Scalzi

Well written entertainment - witty and engaging.

Mr. Standfast

by John Buchan

Frankly, after the first two novels in this series, Mr. Standfast was a let down -- it seemed disjointed, forced, and more stridently "pro war" than the last two.

The characterizations of anyone not British, upper-class, white, and militaristic were annoyingly two-dimensional and insulting as well.
