  1. Book Bible Blog - Mind Pilots

    Originally they were referred to as Linkers, now theyíre known as Mind Pilots. Their abilities arenít specifically geared towards the piloting of space faring vessels but with the odds stacked heavily in their favour their exploits at the helm of powerful spacecraft seem heroic to the masses when aired on the media channels.

  2. To Be or Not To Be A Romance, A Fantasy, Or A Load of Craptastic Awfulness

    In order to investigate the idea of strong romance coupled with fantasy creating a black hole of craptasticness in the fantasy-novel universe, I decided to read waaaaaay too many new fantasy/romance books in my short break between spring/summer semesters. Unfortunately, I had to conclude that the fantasy physicists are correct: none of them are good (and I kind of knew that going into it but...sometimes I like to read things that make me throw the book against the wall, it's the Italian in me). ...

    Now before you go reading the excerpt that I have made available and contact me or post things about the mistakes I have made, I want to make it clear that it is an excerpt from the first draft of this book; one of my favorite scenes that I simply copied and pasted to this website directly from the file on my flashdrive. I know there are mistakes, ...

    Reasonably good. As a study in a different form of a novel (there are chapters of the actual main line, mixed with poems by one of the characters, then a short story by one of the characters) it's been educational.

    Chuck also does a good job of "going there" into the gross and disgusting, if you like that kind of thing, and there's very little flinching and leaving things to the imagination. ...
