Review: “Star People Legacy” by T.L. Smith

T.L.Smith, living Arizona, originally from Louisiana, is ex military and a writer of military science fiction with strong female characters. One of the unique aspects to her writing is her mix of aliens with the legends and stories of mythology. This concept is what made me want to read her novella because one man’s story […]

Review Iron Fist: More Action, Less Whining.

The first season of Iron First was decent, but the action lagged at times and the character was not as likeable as others in the Netflix cadre of Marvel shows. While the character of Danny Rand (Finn Jones) was not always easy to empathize with, what redeemed the show was Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) and […]

Review: Night and Silence by Seanan McGuire, Compelling and Unforgettable

Review: “Netflix’s Lost in Space”

I have to admit to being far too young to have watched the original Lost in Space when it was on the air and even more, I only watched it a tiny amount in reruns. Since I watched it, I’ve heard mixed reactions to the original but I was neutral when they re-imagined the show […]

Review: “Aliens Abroad” by Gini Koch: New Faces, New Places

One of the things Gini Koch says to her fans on a regular basis, is things have to happen. This is a book where those things happen. While that is neither good nor bad, it makes this book one of my new favorites in the series because big events happen in this story and it […]

Recap: Marvel’s Jessica Jones Season Two

Second season finally dropped in Netflix and I know I was breathless with excitement. I loved the first season, the darkness, the progression of Jessica’s character as she works through her recovery from what Kilgrave (David Tennant) inflicted on her. It was compelling watching as she slowly opens to emotions and reaches out to her […]
