The Martian Emperor

Cover for The Martian Emperor


A hi­lar­i­ous ad­ven­ture. You *do* need to read the first book first, or this one will make no sense, and it's a shame the au­thor has not writ­ten a third book in the se­ries.

OTO­H, this one has giv­en me Ted­dy Roo­sevelt on a rhi­noc­er­os for a dol­lar, so who am I to com­plain.

The Monster In The Mist

This book re­al­ly sur­prised me. I had nev­er heard of it, and got it as a rec­om­men­da­tion on Kin­dle af­ter "The Glass Ma­gi­cian", and since it was 99 cents...

Well, it is sort of an awe­some love child of Verne and Twain, or some­thing like that. Too bad the au­thor ap­par­ent­ly has on­ly writ­ten two of these and aban­doned the se­ries :-(

The Serrano Succession (The Serrano Legacy, #6-7)

Cover for The Serrano Succession (The Serrano Legacy, #6-7)


I had read "Once a Hero", which is some­thing like the 4th of 7 books in the Ser­rarno se­ries a long time ago on a used book. Then I got a cou­ple more, again out of or­der from the Baen free li­brary.

I quite liked them so I took a chance now at pay­ing the au­thor and get­ting the whole sto­ry by read­ing the three om­nibus edi­tion­s.

Con­clu­sion: I did not like them as much as I re­mem­bered but they are still pret­ty good. They do suf­fer a bit of the hy­per­com­pe­tent sci­fi hero syn­drome, but at least they are not guys.
