The Shining – Stephen King

Continuing with my tradition of reviewing a Stephen King novel in time for Halloween, this year I set aside some time to revisit a real classic, The Shining. This was King’s third full-length novel, and by the time this book was published it seems he had fully embraced the label of “horror author”. In case …

Star Wars: Cobalt Squadron – Elizabeth Wein

Wow. It’s actually been over a year since I reviewed a Star Wars novel. I feel ashamed. But, in truth, I just have not had a lot of free time. Thankfully, my schedule has normalized somewhat and I’m now back to a semi-normal schedule. So, I guess I’ll pick up where I left off – …

‘Salem’s Lot – Stephen King

Last Halloween I posted a review for Stephen King’s very first novel; Carrie. At the time, I mentioned that I would make it a goal to read and review every one of his books in order of publication. Now, I realize that was quite some time ago. But as you know, I’ve had a lot …

Star Wars: Canto Bight – Various Authors

Next up on my list of unread Star Wars novels is Canto Bight, a collection of short stories that take place on the casino world of – you guessed it, Canto Bight. Now, I know that in the eyes of many (myself included), the Canto Bight sequence of The Last Jedi was probably one of …

Star Wars: The Legends of Luke Skywalker – Ken Liu

For the last two months I’ve been making an extra-long commute to work. This has cut into my gaming time drastically. But on the upside, I’ve had more time during the day to read. I’m still grinding through “The Last Jedi” companion novels, but I’m almost to the end. Today, I’m going to share my …

Star Wars: Leia, Princess of Alderaan – Claudia Gray

Finally catching back up on my Star Wars book reviews, I want to share my thoughts on Leia, Princess of Alderaan by Claudia Gray. This is a novel that really took me by surprise. I went into this book with low expectations. But ended up with a page turner that captured my attention from start …

Empire of Imagination – Michael Witwer

  I love to read. When it comes to books I consume everything I can get my hands on. Most of the time I read fiction, but occasionally I enjoy non-fiction as well – especially biographies. A while back I posted a review of Richard Garriott’s autobiography Explore/Create. Being a fan of RPG games, it …

Star Wars: From A Certain Point of View – Various Authors

It has been a while since I posted a review of a Star Wars novel. In truth, I think I suffered from a bit of Star Wars burnout leading up to the release of The Last Jedi. I indulged on so many different books and other Star Wars media at the time, that once the …

Ready Player One – Ernest Cline

Nerd Culture is a stock that is currently rising. Everywhere you turn people are embracing retro nostalgia and pop-culture icons of yesteryear. Video games are mainstream. Dungeons & Dragons is mainstream. Horror, Sci-Fi, Fantasy – all genres that were once coveted only by the nerdiest among us are now celebrated en-masse. For proof of this, …

Explore/Create – Richard Garriott

  It’s been a little while since I posted a book review that wasn’t Star Wars related. In fact, I think my last one was a review of Stephen King’s Carrie back in November of last year. So, this time I wanted to change things up a bit and discuss an autobiography that I finished …
