In My Own Words:
I'm just an ordinary, average guy. With one exception. You see I'm an addict. My addiction costs me more money than I can count. It keeps me from having normal relationships. Oh, the horror!How did I become hooked on books? It started, as with so many others, with a freebee. A book was given to me when I was but a child. I didn't know any better. So I took it. I read it. My life hasn't been the sa… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Non-stop Medical Thriller, 14 April 2002
Dr. David Mucci has written a fast paced, character driven story here that will keep you up all night reading! This is a wonderful book and I can't recommend it highly enough. I couldn't put it down. I was captivated from the first page right up to the last. The plot was entirely believable and the action never slowed down. Even if you're not a fan of medical thrillers I'm sure you'll like this book. It has all the ingredients of greatness. This is a story that the reader will remember long after finishing the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Traditional SF, 14 April 2002
Set in the far future, in the far reaches of the galaxy, Bios is an unusual tale. Unlike so many other stories of human settlement on foreign planets this time we have a planet which just doesn't seem to want us there. This is not simply a wild west story set among the stars. With Bios, Robert Charles Wilson has not given us a tale of settlers getting to know their new home so much as he has given us a tale of a new home getting to know it's settlers. The planet Isis is hostile and toxic and it wants very much to break through the protective seals the invading humans have built around their outposts. It tries and tries again to get through and it learns from its past failures. Little by… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Insanity Unleashed, 13 April 2002
A psychedelic romp through the etheric soul of eternity, ‘Shamanspace’ reads like a recipe for a psychotic episode of mass proportions. At long last we have proof that God exists and the race is on to take revenge on the supreme maker of life, death, and cheap whiskey. The edgeman Alix is the favored to win as he sidesteps through time and space on his quest to drive the bullet home. God is the target, Alix is the gun, and the stakes are high as the very existence of humanity perches on the cusp of oblivion. Steve Aylett has created a masterwork of speculative fiction written in a hybrid English perhaps best described as Cyberspeak. The book is fast paced and unrelenting and it… Read more
