I love Hogan but this book is a sure fire rambler, and a bit confusing, it continues the tale of, but as the psychedelic cover suggests a bit out there

This review is from: Tarot (Paperback)
This is not your common garden book. Its best read in its Trilogy form to avoid unessessary distraction, some readers may have issues with Occult and tarot references if so by another book. If you have an open mind come in and discover rich landscapes, intriguing characters, and lots of historical and religious machinations, described superbly, it's a book to expand your horizons and maybe educate you, but above all its a great SF book with Fantasy abound

A Dance With Dragons: Part 1 Dreams and Dust (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 5)
by George R. R. Martin
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read, 13 Nov. 2013

George Martin is still writing add ons as I write, the books are not Tolkien or Narnia, but they are the closest series to it, more raw and violent and x rated, when men were men and women were brutalized, the balance is about right and it immerses you into a fantasy world full of enchantment and battles....

Some early stories selected by Asimov, unusual to say the least, but I enjoyed the selection immensely, if you collect Isaac Asimov, don't stop here.


Blade Runner IV: Eye and Talon
Blade Runner IV: Eye and Talon
by K. W. Jeter
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Whats to say he is a Blade runner, 13 Nov. 2013

Jetter faithfully recreates the further adventures of Deckard as a Blade Runner, I would suggest you read Do Androids dream of Electric Sheep first by Phillip K Dick. as the movie you watched is missing many nuances and parts of the whole which the book will fill in. then after that read this then the third and final book. or better still buy them all on Amazon as I did.. what a read

Three Books of Known Space

Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.03

4.0 out of 5 stars Great SF, 13 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
a great first omnibus from Niven keeping the stories in the same universe. if you love Niven its great, if you are new to Niven like I was its a little plodding at first but then it gets great, as Niven is laying down the foundations of his Known space.

I bought this book to complete my series, and what a series, even though poor Asimov was pestered by his publishers to write more more... when he did he did not rush it , he took his time and the quality is still there, obviously if you are interested in this book you have read some of them so carry on. remember pass your books on to the kids get them reading SF if you can too many hours on the IPad and no creative ideas from reading books makes jack a dull boy..Buy it its great
