Review: The Devil Crept In by Ania Ahlborn

Good ghost stories are really hard to come by in the last 20-or-so years. Generally, you find a book that has a neat concept and promising start, but it ultimately falls back to established tropes and concepts that we’ve seen… Continue Reading →

Review: Wake of Vultures by Lila Bowen

Westerns, by in large, come in one of three flavors: characters navigating a post-Civil War landscape; characters navigating the wild, untamed Western landscape; and desperado/bounty hunter tales that channel the Man Without a Name. It’s very rare to find one… Continue Reading →

Review: Roboute Guilliman: Lord of Ultramar by David Annandale

Welcome to our first foray into the grim, dark future of Warhammer 40,000 (WH40k). Because Keri and Jen hate to draw straws when it comes to reviewing books, we’ve decided to do joint reviews. On one hand, we have our… Continue Reading →

Review: Coyote America by Dan Flores

Growing up in the mountain desert area of Colorado, and now living in the Denver suburbs, coyotes have always been a common sight for me. Lately, though, it seems the nightly news cannot wring their hands hard enough over their… Continue Reading →
