American Gods: A Novel
American Gods: A Novel
by Neil Gaiman
Edition: Hardcover
Price: CDN$ 21.00
34 used & new from CDN$ 17.95

5.0 out of 5 stars none, June 23 2001
This review is from: American Gods: A Novel (Hardcover)
"American Gods" is a superior achievement in fantasy. At once, vivid and surreal, intense and inventive, mythological and technological, bold and engrossing. Powerfully haunting and hypnotizing, "American Gods" is a novel that rips the cover off America, for a look seldom seen, rarely looked for, and the Gods that reside there in this much darker version of Kerouac's "On The Road", and Gaiman at his imaginative and storytelling best... Gary S. Potter Author/Poet

Far and away, THE KING OF DREAMS, is Silverberg's most complex, brilliant, and fascinating 'Majipoor' novel to date. And once again (Silverberg) staggers the readers imagination as the wonder, intrigue, and magic that is Majipoor abound... Gary S. Potter Author/Poet.

'The Ring of Five Dragons', the first in 'The Pearl' series, Lustbader has created one of the most original and intriguing fantasies for the new millennium. Lustbader's characters are vibrant and alive; filled with mysterious creatures and dieties, alien invaders and prophets, multi-layered plots and non-stop action and intrigue in a multi-colored and brillantly realized world.

In 50 In 50 Harrison not only gives the fans of SF a semi-auto-biographical overview of his 50 plus year career, but gives us 50 of his best stories. From his first 'Rock Diver', to his most recent, 'The Road To The Year 3000'. From the fantastic to hard SF, humorous to the serious, to stories that defy category. It is a compendium that is a must for every fan of SF. The extensive story notes that not only look into the stories, but what makes this writer one of SF's very best, and his long and illustrious, prolific and continuing career... Gary S.

Fantastic Voyaga Microcosm
Fantastic Voyaga Microcosm
by Kevin Anderson
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
32 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars none, May 29 2001
What Asimov's 'Fantastic Voyage' did for the human body; Anderson does for the alien. 'Microcosm' is at once filled with chilling alien exotica, fraught with danger, speculation, and awe,for that edge-of-your-seat ride. Anderson has written an exhilarating and fast-paced thriller that is a welcome companion to Asimov's original novel. Gary S. Potter Author/Poet.

Whether set in a grim future, or fantastical realm, Rusch has an eye for detail that lends her characters a voice that's nearly poetic in quality, and stories filled with a touch of horror, humor, caution, wonder, and awe. Stories that enchant anytime... Gary S. Potter Author/Poet.

T2: Infiltrator
by S. M. Stirling
Edition: Hardcover
30 used & new from CDN$ 0.33

4.0 out of 5 stars none, April 28 2001
This review is from: T2: Infiltrator (Hardcover)
Sterling combines his masterful storytelling of alternate history and military SF to give the reader an intense, fast-paced, high-tech thriller set in the 'Terminator' universe but a wholly original novel. T2-Infiltrator is a smashing debut of what looks and fans hope will be a long and engaging series. Gary S. Potter Author/Poet

Claremont Tales
Claremont Tales
by Richard A. Lupoff
Edition: Hardcover
16 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars none, April 28 2001
This review is from: Claremont Tales (Hardcover)
In Lupoff's foreword, he argues that a work of fiction should take the reader out of their world and into the author's. If not,then the author has, in some respect, failed, leaving the reader feeling dissatisfied. From his virtually impossible whodunit 'The Second Drug' to the hard SF tale 'Black Mist' to the Lovecraftian tale 'Discovery of the Ghorric Zone' with a Lupoffian twist on it, as well as the heartfelt fantasy 'The Tootsie Roll Factor', Lupoff's stories are a passport to the richly inventive and imaginative, the wildly diverse and wholly original. Tales that run the gambit and defy classification. From the heartfelt to the humorous, sheer honesty and wonder to the horrific. Lupoff is a masterful storyteller with the adriot ability to draw the reader into his worlds. And who can argue with that...? Gary S. Potter Author/Poet.
