Reviews by Sid

Omnilingual

by H. Beam Piper

This is one gem of a short story. Although right now unbelievable, the story is about an archeological expedition of an ancient Martian civilization. Faced with many unknowns, the heroine Martha has a task to decipher the Martian language without the help of a Rosetta Stone. This story is very gripping from beginning to end.

The Edge of the Knife

by H. Beam Piper

This is a pretty good read. Not very outstanding, but a gem of a short story. It does serve as an introduction to the Terro-Human Future History series, but nothing more. You've seen the other reviews about the story of how a professor can see into the future, that pretty much sums it up. Check it out if you want something else if you like Asimov's Foundation Series.

The Castle of Otranto

by Horace Walpole

Well, it is the first gothic novel. So if you're a gothic buff/nerd take a read. Although it might have been a scary read back in the 18th century, modern readers would probably ridicule these events. In fact, you can probably spot a foreshadowing of a Monty Python gag. It's a bad book, but I enjoyed it for what it was worth.

A must read for those who love Dracula and even Interview with a Vampire. A novel of two girls who eventually become lovers in a lonely Eastern European castle, the tale has an aura of mystery, horror, and even sexuality. Reading this book, you will witness the birth of the enigmatic and beautiful vampire woman. Done reading my review? Download it now and enjoy!
