HIT by Delilah S. Dawson (Audiobook Read by Rebekkah Ross)

th_b_dawson_hit It isn’t too much of a leap to think that banks own us, our debt, and everything we possess because of our debt to banks and credit cards.  Take that idea one step (or leap) further – A single bank buys out all of America’s debt and America is the United States of America in name only. In Delilah...
   

SFFWorld Archive: The Rim of Space by A. Bertram Chandler

Rim of Space Here’s an old review from the archives, first written back in 2013:     A (Arthur) Bertram Chandler is a name that has pretty much disappeared from contemporary SF history, although in the 1950’s and 60’s he was an extremely popular author. Baen Books have recently begun to release...

The Nightmare Stacks by Charles Stross

US Cover Art The Nightmare Stacks is Charles Stross’ latest – and seventh – instalment in his ever-popular Laundry Files, following on from The Annihilation Score. I’m a big fan of the novels and have read them all over the past couple of years, so the next release is always an event on my calendar. I love...
   

THE SUMMER DRAGON (First Book of The Evertide) by Todd Lockwood

Art by Todd Lockwood Few creatures or images are more iconic and emblematic in fantasy than dragons. Over the past couple of decades, few artists have been more closely associated with dragons than Todd Lockwood, painter, artist, and creator of many draconic images for book covers and role playing games. So although The...

False Hearts by Laura Lam

false hearts Here’s the second book that, coincidentally, I’ve read recently about twins. However, unlike Heinlein’s Time for the Stars (written in 1956 and reviewed HERE) Laura’s False Hearts is a much more contemporary near-future novel. False Hearts is the tale of conjoined twins Taema and Tila, who now...

The Fireman by Joe Hill

Fireman The arrival of the latest book by Joe Hill has generally been seen as one of the highlights of the publishing year, and has been much anticipated here at SFFWorld. Joe has said that The Fireman is his take on his father’s masterwork The Stand. I can see what he means, though the end-results are clearly...
   

Foundation by Isaac Asimov

Foundation Trilogy Cover Ah, Foundation. For me, returning to this novel is like spending time with an old friend. Often generally regarded as ‘one of the best’*, if not one of the most important SF novels of all time, I personally have reread this one – well, a few times. I consider myself very lucky to own a signed...

The Days of Tao by Wesley Chu

the-days-of-tao The Days of Tao is Wesley Chu’s new story in his Tao setting, and while only a novella it will be a welcome addition to any fans of the series.

Archive Review: Glory Road by Robert A Heinlein

GloryRoad_1st_ed A recent discussion on the Forums about this book reminded me that I wrote a review of it, many years ago. It’s taken a bit of finding, but here it is. Written way back in 2009. Compared with Rocketship Galileo (reviewed HERE – link) and, as you might expect with nearly 20 years difference, this...

Firefly: The Gorramn Shiniest Dictionary and Phrasebook in the ‘Verse by Monica Valentinelli

firefly phrasebook1   It’s pretty much a definite thing when asked in the Hobbit household what our favourite TV genre series is. Firefly is usually near the top, outvoting Battlestar Galactica, The X Files, Star Trek and Millennium. (Fringe comes pretty close to the top, actually.) So this lovely looking book took...

Roboteer by Alex Lamb

roboteer Roboteer is the first book in debut author Alex Lamb’s Roboteer trilogy. Released in 2015, Roboteer is the kind of novel that calls to me to read – it has everything that I want in a science fiction novel. However, despite trying to read it on its release, I couldn’t fully immerse myself in the...
   

Set Phasers to Stun by Marcus Berkmann

set phasers to stun   In my recent review of Miasma by Greg Cox I mentioned that this year (2016) is the 50th anniversary of the first episodes of Star Trek being shown in the US.
