Head On

There’s an interesting hook to the telepresense sports league but I was never pulled into the story the way that I’m accustomed to with Scalzi’s novels.

All Joy and No Fun

Thousands of books have examined the effects of parents on their children. In All Joy and No Fun, award-winning journalist Jennifer Senior now asks: what are the effects of children on their parents? In All Joy and No Fun, award-winning journalist Jennifer Senior tries to tackle this question, isolating and analyzing the many ways in which children reshape their parents’ lives, whether it’s their marriages, their jobs, their habits, their hobbies, their friendships, or their internal senses of self. She argues that changes in the last half century have radically altered the roles of today’s mothers and fathers, making their...

Omega Sub #6: Raven Rising

Hidden in an underground fortress, the insane U.S. president and his elite corps of stormtroopers, survivors of the nuclear holocaust that has left the world in ruins, make plans to enslave what remains of the human race. Original. This is it, the final book in the Omega Sub series. The series concept was pretty great, the execution of the idea though came up short. There’s a mary sue character in charge of the ship, his brother is a mary sue character and everyone else? they’re just not up to the captain’s example. Take their head engineer, he has a name,...

The Punisher Meets Archie

The Crossover you’ve been dreading! I remember when this was originally sold, I think I bought both covers as I was impressed with how ludicrous the audacity of Marvel and Archie comics creating such a thing. The story is still delightfully cheesy, with over the top references to various Archie and Marvel properties and they get away with some Archie level violence without making The Punisher into a joke.

Omega Sub #5 Death Dive

The Omega Sub fights whales and a pack of dogs! This was much easier to read than the last few books in this series, but it was all ruined with some anti-science diatribes from the main Mary Sue character. There’s still no answers for the zombie like White Shirts, and no real answer for any there are absolutely no survivors to be found, with the exception of a family off the coast of New York, which is why the Omega Sub is out fighting whales, they’re going from the Pacific to the aforementioned New York island. Can’t suggest this book,...
