Dragonlance Chronicles: Dragons of Spring Dawning – Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman

I’ve discussed my love for the Dragonlance books on this site before. To me, the Dragonlance Chronicles are MY Lord of the Rings trilogy. These are the books that introduced me to the Sword and Sorcery genre of fiction. To date, I’ve discussed the first two books in the series. So today, I’m going to share my thoughts on the...

Firestarter – Stephen King

Halloween is almost upon us. What better time is there to curl up with another one of Stephen King’s classic novels? Yes, I know I haven’t really been restricting my King consumption just to the month of October. In fact, I read his books throughout most of the last year. But, can you blame me? Once you dive in, they...

Slaying the Dragon: A Secret History of Dungeons & Dragons – Ben Riggs

It’s very rare that I pick up a new book on release day. It’s even rarer for me to read through it in less than forty-eight hours. But that’s exactly what happened with Slaying the Dragon by Ben Riggs. Now, I will go on record and say up front, this is not a book for everyone. The subtitle reads “A...

The Dead Zone – Stephen King

  I feel sort of bad for pushing all my other books aside to go on a Stephen King binge. But honestly, I can’t say I really regret it. His novels are nothing short of addicting. Today, I’m going to focus on the fan-favorite The Dead Zone. As a teenager, I read a number of King’s earliest works. But this...

The Stand – Stephen King

I know I typically save my Stephen King book reviews for the month of October. But last month, like so many other people, I found myself diagnosed with Covid-19. Thankfully, it was only the mild Omicron variant, so I recovered rather quickly. But still, it got me thinking about just how quickly Covid spread across the globe. It started out...

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Black Spire – Delilah S. Dawson

The last time I reviewed a Star Wars novel it didn’t go very well. The book in question was A Crash of Fate. This was a novel created for the sole purpose of drumming up hype for Disney’s new Galaxy’s Edge theme park. The story itself wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t particularly good either. In the end, the book appeared...

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – A Crash of Fate – Zoraida Cordova

When Disney originally announced the reboot of the Star Wars Expanded Universe project, fans were excited. The promise we heard was that all future Star Wars novels would be vetted for quality and every release would be canonical. This was good news because as any old school Star Wars fan will tell you, there was more than a few stinkers...

Night Shift – Stephen King

It has become a tradition of mine to read and review a Stephen King novel each year for Halloween. I started this tradition by reading King’s first novel, Carrie. From there, I progressed through each of his books chronologically by date of publication. The last review was for Rage, a novel written under the pseudonym of Richard Bachman. At this...
