In the Mayor's Parlour

by J.S. Fletcher

Great read! I like J S Fletcher as a mystery author. A little different from his other books and perhaps that is why I enjoyed this read so much. Enjoy!!!

The Fortieth Door

by Mary Hastings Bradley

Jack Ryder, an archeologist passionate about the ancient Egyptian ruins, is forced into attending a masquerade where he stumbles upon a vision in loveliness. The path to her lies through the fortieth door fraught with dangers but he decides to risk it all to achieve treasure worth more than all his wildest dreams.
A fast-paced romantic adventure with well-defined characters including a likeable hero, strong female characters and a diabolical villain, slightly let down by an abrupt ending.

When the Sleepers Woke

by Arthur Leo Zagat

20 years after the final war covered the Earth in poison gas, the few survivors--Africans and Asians on one side and white bread Americans on the other--conveniently all meet at the same time in ruined New York City.

The story made me tired. The Africans and Asians were deranged beasts, the Americans were noble and pure. One against forty odds gave the edge to the one American hero.

Youngling

by Ann Wilson

An excellent story; I could find no fault with it. An Earthling Marine Major is captured after a battle in which all but two of his outfit--both women--were killed. He is interrogated by the enemy.

All the characters are great, as are the plotting and descriptions. The theme of each side being bewildered by the other's sense of honor, and of secret, surprising kindness, is poignant.

Evil Out of Onzar

by Mark Ganes

An interesting story, despite some slightly jagged writing on occasion, and an ending suitable for a 5th grade essay.
