Alien Cradle

by Jeff Inlo

Interesting idea. The author should read a bit about biology and where our oxygen comes from. There certainly won't be any planets out there ready to settle with breathable air but without life. My guess is that blunder is the reason why you can read that book now for free.

Malcolm Sage, Detective

by Herbert Jenkins

Malcolm Sage is a pure geek but, paradoxically, loved by everyone. The collection of his cases is well written and presents a detective with a heart, even if he doesn't look like it. It's that what makes the book special among the mystery pulp of that time.

It looks as if this were a followup from a previous novel where the protagonist is introduced. Indeed, worldcat offers the title John Dene of Toronto : a comedy of Whitehall from the previous year. Let's hope we'll see this too on manybooks.

Nude in Mink

by Sax Rohmer

Wow, what pulp. Unusually for Rohmer, this time it's not The Yellow Peril(tm) that threatens The West, this time it's The Feminist Yellow Peril(tm).

and keep the secret of its ending! ... what nonsense, the culprits are obvious very soon, it's only the painted stupidity of the protagonist that holds the story for the second half of the book, contrary to what the other commenters say.

Author of the Day

Elin Barnes
Elin Barnes has done many different things in her life, like being a flight instructor, working for a criminal appeals lawyer and working for many big name technology companies in Silicon Valley (Microsoft, Google etc.). But the one thing that she never thought would actually happen is to write (and finish) a book. Her debut novel, Justification for Murder, has, in the meantime, earned rave reviews and grown into a series. As our author of the day, Barnes reveals why she picked Silicon Valley as the backdrop, her inspiration behind writing a biomedical thriller and how she went for ride-alongs with the San Jose Police Department.
