In My Own Words:
I'm 42 years old and have a B.S. in History. I've been living in Vancouver for 14 years now. I've been a Science Fiction & Fantasy fan for 20 years, and into History for that long as well. My favorite show is Doctor Who, though it was Star Trek until Voyager came around. If you'd like to discuss any of these reviews, or topics related to them, feel free to email me. Happy Reading!

Ware 665 Chew Proof 3 Level Critter Cage by Ware

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I needed, Sept. 7 2013
I was looking for something that would be easy to clean, be able to hold at least three rats and also have narrow enough bars that babies wouldn't be able to escape.

This fit the bill. However, I should state that for whatever reason, the packaging at the warehouse isn't what it should be and sometimes there will be damage to the base and some minor bending of the white bars, which is what happened with me. The minor bending wasn't an issue, but the base damage was and Ware stands behind their products and sent another base as it would have rusted out quicker than the bar section of cage. Now both should last a good number of years.

Another thing to keep in mind is… Read more
Year's Best Fantasy 4 by David G Hartwell
Year's Best Fantasy 4 by David G Hartwell
Having recently finished David G. Hartwell and Kathryn Cramer's Year's Best SF 9 because of Kage Baker's story, imagine my horror when I discovered that, for the first time since Book 1 of their Year's Best Fantasy series, there would not be a Baker story in this year's edition. I decided to soldier on, however, as the other stories have always been exceptional. I would just have to read a book that did not contain a Baker story. *shudder*
Now, all kidding aside (I love Baker, but I'm definitely exaggerating above), the stories in Year's Best Fantasy 4 did not grip me like they have in past years. In fact, going back and writing out the story titles and authors for the list below,… Read more
Medalon: Book One of the Hythrun Chronicles by Jennifer Fallon
It's not often that a new writer explodes on the scene with book after wonderful book that just takes your breath away. Of course, it helps when the author in question has been writing for a few years in another country and her books are just now coming to North American shores. Such is the case of Jennifer Fallon, who's Second Sons trilogy has just been published in its entirety in North America. Also, the first book of the Hythrun Chronicles has also been published, Medalon. Unfortunately for me, Tor has decided that they don't want to saturate the market and will thus be publishing them once a year. It will be a while before we're caught up. I loved the Second Sons trilogy so much… Read more
