  1. I also recently finished the first "Bobiverse" book "We Are Legion (We Are Bob)" by Dennis E. Taylor... Highly recommended as a light SciFi book or literary palette cleanser! I plan to read book 2 soon.
  2. Amen to that. Consider it chalked!
  3. You thought I was being serious?!? Did you miss your morning coffee or did you critically fail your "Detect Irony" roll? Maybe you just didn't see the emoji? Here is another for you...🙄
  4. I owe a big “thank you” to those of you on this forum who recommended “Fated”, first book in the “Alex Verus” series by Benedict Jacka. I have only just started this book, but I am really enjoying it! After scrolling through 7 years of replies to this thread, I kept seeing this “Benedict Jacka” fellow repeatedly mentioned (in an overwhelmingly positive manner). I had to check it out for myself…and thus far, I am glad that I did!
  5. This is a genre that shows the HERO System's power to simulate almost anything the GM can imagine. Doc, your "Cog Shield" is a very cool idea!
  6. Thank you. Now I know what happened. Powers broke my brain with his convoluted plot!
  7. I was afraid all your head-banging left you wandering off with amnesia! Great to see you here again, Boz! :D

      Thank you!

       

      Glad to see that you are still fighting the good fight...  The community on this forum really is a wonderful mix of individuals!

  8. I am also a fan of Tim Powers. I have considered re-reading On Stranger Tides. Even though it takes a little longer to get rolling than I normally like, I remember it being pretty kick-a$$ once it gets going. Like you, I have never been able to remember The Anubis Gate storyline. This happened (again) immediately after my most recent re-read! I KNOW that The Anubis Gate is one of my favorite books of all time but I cannot tell you why...because I simply cannot recall any details! Some would say this happens because I am getting older, but this has happened with this one book s
  9. Thank you for this recommendation! The first e-book in this series is FREE!
  10. A few days ago, I finished reading "Three Hearts and Three Lions" by Poul Anderson. I picked up this book for two reasons... 1. Supposedly, this is one of those fantasy classics that predates The LOTR trilogy (if only by a year). 2. I usually enjoy books that feature a modern man thrust against his will into a parallel Earth where magic works. Thankfully, this is a very short book. More of a long novella in my opinion. I would not have finished it (and almost didn't) if it were longer than 170 pages. I did find parts interesting… Sadly, I found an equal number of parts annoyin
  11. I just finished "Clementine" by Cherie Priest. This is the second book of "Clockwork Century" series that I have read. Not really a book, more of a novella. This was a light, fun read. Nothing stupendous, just a good story with lots of steampunk elements I have come to enjoy. Thus far, Ms. Priest has exhibited a style of writing I find very agreeable. Her characters are neither saintly nor are they evil incarnate...they come across as real people with both good and bad qualities. I look forward to reading the next book... "Dreadnought".
  12. This is my review of a book I just finished this morning..."The Long Run" by Daniel Keyes Moran. Part two in "Tales of the Continuing Time" series. (This first paragraph was written almost a year ago and posted on Goodreads) My rating (5 out of 5 stars) is based upon having read this book for the first time (on or about) the year 1989. I remember eagerly turning pages as Trent escaped one hair-raising action sequence before entering another. This book was for me like crack is to a crack addict. I am tempted, oh so tempted, to read it again. 3-20-2013 UPDATE: Having just compl
