Kill the Dead (Sandman Slim, #2)

Cover for Kill the Dead (Sandman Slim, #2)


This is not a book. It's the sec­ond half of "Sand­man Slim". Read that and then de­cide if you ac­tu­al­ly want to read this sec­ond half or not.

Me, I liked it, thank you very much.


Cover for Outies


This book is a mess. There are some good ideas in there but:

1) It des­per­ate­ly needs an ed­i­tor (ex­am­ple: it us­es "com­pos­ite com­pound" as the de­scrip­tion of a ma­te­ri­al)

2) Char­ac­ters ap­pear out of nowhere, and dis­ap­pear 20 pages lat­er, to nev­er be seen again.

3) The ac­tion scenes are so con­fus­ing they would make Michael Bay blush.

4) The pub­lish­er should put the au­thor's full name in the cov­er so noone con­fus­es her with her fa­ther.

A Deepness in the Sky

Cover for A Deepness in the Sky


Not near­ly as much fun as the first two books in the se­ries. Plus the end is left wide open, sure­ly be­cause the au­thor is writ­ing a se­quel.
