5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Travel Interpreter (App)
I found this to be a very useful app while I was on holiday in Rome. Easy to use. Ideal for people who would like to speak the basics of another language overbroad. It does go into more detail for those who would like to speak more.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good board game but gets thin after a while, 20 Mar. 2014

Good to dip into occasionally but does get very repetitive. Looks very good and is easy to get into. Nice but rather dull conversion of the board game.

2.0 out of 5 stars A glossy but fleeting distraction, 10 Mar. 2014

This review is from: Atomus HD (App)
Mildly amusing at first but I found it unable to hold my attention for very long.
Pretty, undemanding and ultimately quite boring, but free on day of purchase!

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent Axis and Allies clone, 26 Feb. 2014

This review is from: 1941: World War Strategy (App)
A good Axis and Allies clone. Missing some of those features like research and AA guns. Bit strange to get into if you are a noob. Controls can be a bit fiddly. If you're a fan of the original game it is worth checking out.

Very good collection of unusual Jack Vance stories. It was great to find these as a download for my Kindle as they are very hard to find in print.

Nice and chilling Blackwood story. Quite hard to find in print so I was glad to find it on kindle.


The Savage Sword of Conan Volume 10
The Savage Sword of Conan Volume 10

Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.99

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting collection of tales, 5 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can get quite jaded when I read through these big tomes of old Conan comic-strips. Capt Bor'aqh Sharq, Snow Raven and the soul-maggot gobbling Wraal pop up again. There is a rather silly adversary for Conan to battle in the form of Pol Tiurno.
Nice examples of covers, frontispieces and pin-ups.
The outstanding story is 'The Mill' This one surprised me a lot. A very brutal story of cannibalism, murder, mutilation and mutiny. Beautifully drawn and with a very bleak and bitter atmosphere.
A good volume to get for the SSoC collector.
