Guest Post by Chris Pearce, Author of A Weaver’s Web

Tell us a bit about yourself I was born in Surrey, UK in 1952 and came to Australia with my family in 1958. My parents were ten pound poms. Just before this, we almost went to Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe. I grew up in Melbourne before living on Phillip Island (down the road from Melbourne and […]

Camp Sunshine (Sunshine Series) by Ruth Francisco

I’ve read and raved about other books by this author so when this one came in for a review, I was excited to check it out. I wasn’t disappointed, exactly, but I wish it hadn’t been so over written. Let me see if I can explain a bit, but first… the good. I was transported […]

The Plot Against Marlene Dietrich by Henry F. Mazel

The author sent me this book about a year ago. Honestly, I had to google to find out who Marlene Dietrich was so you know where I’m coming from with this review. I picked it up, wanting something short and easy to read, thinking it would be a great noir story with some mystery. Instead, […]

Blackout by Connie Willis

I’m a huge fan of time travel. In a lot of time travel stories you get a glimpse of a believable future, and a reminder (or a lesson) on times long past. In “Blackout” the future seems a lot like the past. The way the characters talk and act remind me more of the late […]
