5.0 out of 5 stars More twists than an explosion in a pretzel factory., 21 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Before 24, this was probably the first TV series to run on the basis of each episode following on directly from the next. Daniel Benzali is perfectly cast, and the story a must for anyone who likes a top quality whodunit, with more twists than an explosion in a pretzel factory.


Voice of our Shadow (FANTASY MASTERWORKS)
Voice of our Shadow (FANTASY MASTERWORKS)

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously spooky, serious quality, 21 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Chronologically, the follow up to the Land of Laughs, although having nothing in common with that book. The story here concerns a woman called India Tate, and those who form her immediate circle. I first read this book many years ago, and still remember the shock, some weeks after finishing, when the truth of what the author had done dawned on me. It's clever, at times moving, and seriously spooky without the claptrap employed by most writers in the same genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern day classic, 21 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Land of Laughs (Paperback)
Where it all began for Jonathan Carroll. Many years after first reading it, I bought this for a friend, who was similarly mind boggled by what the author achieves. Carroll is a writers writer, meaning he is unlikely to ever write a blockbuster all action epic, but does produce considered, often superbly written works, with brilliant characterization and a deceptive amount of depth. Yet, the work remains very accessible, and should not be thought of a some highbrow exercise in literary clever dickery.The end scene, especially, will stay with you for a while.

5.0 out of 5 stars The songstress supreme, 21 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not tremendously different to the original version, but different enough to be worth buying. Newbies, if you have just emerged form a time capsule or strange cult, and have never heard Kate Bush's music, this is a fine place to start listening to the second, and better half of the songstress supreme's career.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 'pure' deodorant on the market, 21 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For those who are sensitive to the chemical rubbish in so many modern deodorants, this is the answer. Does what the makers claim and never produces any side effects, in my experience. The only issue is that is is comparatively expensive to buy on an individual bases, at almost eight quid a pop. Which is where this six pack proves to be very good value indeed.I ordered my six pack one day with standard delivery, and it arrived the next, which earns the sellers a commendation for excellent service.

An excellent follow up to the first in the series. Well worth adding to the collection of anyone who enjoys counterfactual history and hates Nazis. Full review coming soon to SFsite.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality counterfactual history!, 20 Jan. 2015
Saw this recently, and loved the concept. The book was always one of Dick's masterpieces in need of visualization, and so I really hope Amazon go all the way with this and deliver a whole series. As counterfactual history ideas go, The Man in the High Castle is one of the most enticing, and suggests so many intriguing possibilities. Nazi's, be they real or imaginary, have never been beaten as villains, and for good reason. Daring to produce a show where America has been defeated by the Nazi regime is a brave, creative move. More please.

5.0 out of 5 stars Touch one button for a brew!, 10 Jan. 2015
We we're given on of these as an Xmas gift, and at first thought it was a solution to a problem that didn't need solving. However, after a few uses we found that it was actually a really good gizmo. We like it so much that if it eventually broke down we'd get another. Press one button and the Hot Cup boils only one cup at at time, usually in under a minute. Doing two or three cups in a row still only takes about as long as a kettle. The amount of water dispensed can easily be adjusted between small, medium and large cups/mugs, and there are very few drips after dispensing. Should you accidentally chose the wrong setting, dispensing can be stopped with a touch. The Hot Cup is ideal for its purpose and would be especially good for anyone who has difficulty with their hands. Once filled we estimate it would dispense 4to 6 cups before needing a refill. Now, we use it in preference to our kettle.
