Here are the first two books: Young Maisy - Maisy is a common village girl. One day an incident with two other girls drives her into the wilderness where she encounters a...

    I finished The Aleph Extraction yesterday. I found it fast-paced and entertaining. The characters are great, too. I hope Dan Moren is able to write & get out the rest of the books in this series. I’m curious as to where his “Galactic Cold War” idea goes.

    Sci-Fi Space Hero Emma Tiffany

    Thanks! Yeah, it was a bit hard for me to read, too, but I wanted to stick with the book’s cover font. Definitely trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t, now that I’m back to doing book trailers.

    Last night I finished I finished Defy or Defend, another of the side books in Gail Carriger’s Parasol-verse. Dimity, from the Finishing School series, has to save a vampire hive though art & redecoration. It’s so much fun. Silly, romantic, and sweet.

    This week I read two short stories by Dan Moren, “Showdown” and “Pilot Error.” They’re free ebooks, released to promote the third novel in his Galactic Cold War series which is due soon. I enjoyed both stories. I do like the series, so I was happy to revisit the universe and the characters.

    Over the weekend I read ”Romancing the Inventor,“ another book in Gail Carriger’s Parasol-verse. I quite liked it. A good little story about finding yourself and trying to find love.

    Yesterday morning I read “The Lady Astronaut of Mars.” Time-wise it comes late in the Lady Astronaut series, but I think it was published first. It’s a very short work. It’s quite good, but also a bit sad. Hoping to move back to longer books next.

    Over the weekend I read Meat Cute, Gail Carriger’s short-story prequel to Soulless. I thought it was a fun little romp. Definitely for fans of the Parasol-verse.

    It’s a little of both. There’s a romance aspect to the first series, “The Parasol Protectorate,” mainly in the first book, but the series is more adventure than romance. There’s a little romance in the second series, “The Finishing School,” but as it’s more YA than the other two series, the...

    I‘ve been so busy writing that I wasn’t paying attention to this. Sorry for not replying to you sooner. :) The TZ episode is “The Bard,” but it’s a hack TV writer who conjures up Shakespeare. Rod Serling wrote it to satirize TV of the time. It’s one of my favorite episodes. The plot you...

    Over the weekend I finished Becoming Superman, the memoir of J. Michael Straczynski, the creator of Babylon 5. It’s a tough book to read but completely worthwhile. He endured poverty and abuse growing up. He found his way out through comics and SF&F literature. He’s been a journalist, a TV...

    Last night I finished book 4 of Gail Carriger’s Custard Protocol series, Reticence. Quite witty and great fun! There was world-building right up to the end. It featured a rather awkward romance between Victorian geeks. Also got into the head of one of the Custard’s crew. Also action and a...

    Yesterday I finished Competence by Gail Carriger, the third Custard Protocol book. What a delightful read! It had laugh-out-loud moments and good character bits. It also ramped up the cast diversity. I plan to start on the fourth book soon.

    Yesterday I finished The Sinister Mystery of the Mesmerizing Girl by Theodora Goss, the third book in her Athena Club trilogy. I really enjoyed the book! The characters were as interesting as they had been. The plot moved along quite quickly. There were even some new references to Victorian...

    Yesterday I finished “Imprudence” by Gail Carriger, the second Custard Protocol book. Another fun read! A little more action and romance this time, and more about the world.

    I finished the third book in the Great Alta series, “The One-Armed Queen,” a few days ago. It wasn’t as strong as the first two books. It had some very good scenes, but I still don’t think the first chapters of the novel quite linked up right with the rest of the story. It might have helped to...
