The Opal Serpent

by Fergus Hume

Hume at his most annoying! Perhaps the victorians liked it, but the absurd drawing of one of the characters (Debby) got so irritating I almost abandoned the book. Good plot but nearly ruined by this characterisation. Very un-Hume-like!!

The Secret Passage

by Fergus Hume

Hume at his best....but what a shame he's put a great big spoiler in the title! Not like him at all. Keeps you guessing till the end though - very satisfying.

Hagar of the Pawn-Shop

by Fergus Hume

What a delightful set of stories! Hume at his best. Not the usual 'whodunnit' style but plenty of puzzles and some great character descriptions. Recommended.

Ashton-Kirk, Criminologist

by John T. McIntyre

Good well-paced story with a faintly ridiculous ending: a cop-out in fact! Made worse by the reader not being given the vital clues Ashton-Kirk had found to solve it, so no chance of working things out. Shame - the rest was good.

Author of the Day

George A. Santino
From a very young age, George A. Santino realized that if you wanted something, you had to work for it - even if that meant digging for soda bottles in trash cans. This attitude got him far in life - he received four rejections from Microsoft before they employed him in an entry level position. Years later, he made partner and managed to retire at age 55. As our author of the day, Santino tells us more about his autobiography and what it takes to get back up in life.
