The Folk of the Fringe

  • Au­thor: Or­son Scott Card
  • Rat­ing:
  • See in goodreads

    The au­thor sure is mor­­mon. Amaz­ing any­one be­lieves such a sil­­ly su­per­sti­­tion.

Armor

  • Au­thor: John Steak­ley
  • Rat­ing:
  • See in goodreads
  • Re­view:

    Very char­ac­ter-­­driven, slaps you around ev­ery page, and Steak­­ley re­al­­ly has a gift for writ­ing ac­­tion sce­­nes: what's hap­pen­ing is al­ways clear, and he gives a feel­ing of ... rush.

  • Rat­ing:
  • See in goodreads
  • Re­view:

    a bit too much rah rah (north) amer­i­­can ex­­cep­­tion­al­is­m.

  • Au­thor: Karl Schroed­er
  • Rat­ing:
  • See in goodreads
  • Re­view:

    An orig­i­­nal set­t­ing (I can on­­ly think of Niven's sig­­ma trees?), ac­­tion, ad­ven­­ture... it'sr eal­­ly an old-­­fash­ioned swash­buck­­ler, but with lots of twist­s.

    Sad­­ly I can't get the se­quels yet.
