Tales of the Dominion War

Untold stories from one of the most dramatic and popular periods in Star Trek history I’m on a bit of a short stories journey right now, starting with an unrelated (except for DeCandido’s involvement as author & editor) Precinct series, now this one about various parts of the Domion War. The conflict was a huge part of the last two seasons of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, but they still didn’t tell even a small portion of the possible stories of what the various crews were up to, the situation on Earth, or even on the allied planets. This collection...

The Silo Series Collection: Wool, Shift, Dust, and Silo Stories

In a ruined and hostile landscape, a community exists in a giant underground silo. Inside, men and women live an enclosed life full of rules and regulations, of secrets and lies. The people who don’t follow the rules are the dangerous ones; they dare to hope and dream, and infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple and deadly. They are allowed outside. Jules is one of these people. She may well be the last. A collection of three books, then three short stories. The longer stories are fantastic and are a novel take on the end of society...

Phoenix Precinct (Precinct #6)

Humans and elves, dwarves and gnomes, wizards and warriors all live and do business in the thriving, overcrowded port city of Cliff’s End, to say nothing of the tourists and travelers who arrive by land and sea, passing through the metropolis on matters of business or pleasure-or on quests.

A fire in the neighboring city-state of Barlin has resulted in hundreds of refugees pouring into Cliff’s End, forcing the creation of a new neighborhood-Albinton, which everyone calls...

Scorpio

On a distant Earth colony, an orphaned survivor of an alien invasion discovers that the greatest world-ending dangers aren’t behind her. It’s been eight years s Set in the same universe as the “Frontlines” series, Kloos has wisely wrapped up the storylines from that first set of books and continued on with a new character that’s a survivor of the Lanky invasion and is holed up in an underground bunker on a far away planet with little to no hope for rescue or help from Earth. As like Kloos’s other books, this is so exceptionally good that I managed to...

Making It So

The long-awaited memoir from iconic, beloved actor and living legend Sir Patrick Stewart! At just over 450 pages, I thought this was going to be a slog to get through, but Stewart’s writing style is snappy enough that even his descriptions of his childhood home’s lack of a toilet was interesting enough that I was able to finish this in just a couple reading sessions. Surprising to me however was both how open he was about his marital mistakes and how little he talked about his time making Trek and the various movies that he did afterwards like the X-Men...

Gryphon Precinct

Cliff’s End is rocked by the death of Lord Albin. His son takes over and institutes changes in how the Castle Guard is run: enforced retirements of older guards Pretty damn huge spoiler there for the previous book, but it is what it is, and what it is is a huge change in the dynamics of the world that the Castle Guard and their investigative forces. It’s a great wrench to throw into the story and leads to a perfectly enjoyable story that feels as fresh as the first book in the series. Buy On Amazon!

Start With Why

Why are some people and organizations more inventive, pioneering and successful than others? In business, it doesn’t matter what you do, it matters WHY you do i One of the books for my local PMI chapter, this book was adapted from the above 18 minute Ted Talk, and while the concept is great and greatly explained, the book doesn’t offer much more than stretching the material well past it’s breaking point with limited new material and repetition of the same points over and over again. It’s still good material, but there’s only about three examples here, unlike some of the...

Truth of the Divine

Truth of the Divine The second book in Lindsay Ellis’s well written series of books about cyborg robots that show up on Earth and have some pretty emotional experiences with the humans they bond with. The story drifts around for several of the middle chapters with a character going through some pretty intense psychiatric issues and I found that I really just wanted the story to do more than it ended up doing in this book, but it sets itself up for at least one more entry in the series. I’m hopeful that Sterling will keep the series going, but...

World-renowned habits expert James I read this for a book club that I’m participating in through my local PMI chapter, unfortunately there were only two of us that participated in the meeting, but we had a great conversation about the book.

Hungry Gods

New costume? Check. Superhero mentor? Check. Government conspiracy to cover up the End of the World? Uh… check? Luke Gillis is barely dragging himself through college. Of course, if he wrote term papers the way he thrashed bank robbers, he’d probably be a doctor by now. His mentor is the Miracle Worker. Yes, that Miracle Worker. Some say he’s more outlaw than hero, but beggars can’t be choosers. Still, Luke must be doing something right. The U.S. Army has invited his alter ego–the dashing speedster Spitball–on a top-secret mission. With the country’s premier superhero team missing-in-action, this could be his...

The USS Khai Tam Technical Orientation Manual is your complete guide to the galaxy’s first jointly designed Federation-Klingon starship.

Befriended by a night-shift nurse, the man in costume begins to disclose what really happened after the fight—and why he feels the deaths of Cameron’s parents and sister fall on his actions. A superhero didn’t survive that...

Occulted

When the Hale-Bopp soared across the sky in 1997, Amy Rose thought it was the start of an amazing new future. Instead, it brought news of a horrible tragedy at the Heaven’s Gate compound just down the road. Amy had always known there was something off about the community she grew up in. I bought this under the assumption that the marketing material that mentioned this young girl lived with a cult that fully believed the happenings of Star Trek had actually happened in some way meant that Trek was going to be more than just a one panel side...

Blood Music

In the tradition of the greatest cyberpunk novels, Blood Music explores the imminent destruction of mankind and the fear of mass destruction by technological ad The author of this passed back in November of 2022 and at the time I think I had read one or two of his books previously, but there were a whole truck load of people saying that this was one of his best works, which I’m not sure I entirely agree with. The concept is absolutely bonkers and super interesting, but the implementation of it feels like an undercooked pizza that would have been delicious...

Star Trek: Discovery: Somewhere to Belong

Captain Michael Burnham and the crew of the USS Discovery are finding that each day is a critical adjustment to their new lives and new missions in an Alpha Quadrant more than nine hundred years in the future. It’s here that Discovery is reconnecting with various worlds where the cataclysmic event known as “the Burn” has decimated Starfleet and, with it, the United Federation of Planets. There’s been precious little time for the crew to truly come to terms with their present reality, as their devotion to duty hides the emotional stress that could impact their effectiveness, and even threaten...

I don’t know if I ever wrote about that, but the entire thing felt off and I didn’t really dig it....

Superman: Under a Yellow Sun

Clark Kent struggles with a book he’s writing while Superman takes on a garbage problem from Lex Luthor. I pulled this from the $1 bin at my local comic shop and it’s worth at least that much to read just once, there’s some great art and a story that’s pretty different from the Superman stuff we’re getting lately. He’s a more grounded character, with a more grounded supporting cast and the story is far slower than a modern book at well, with some space left for the story to properly develop. The Lex Luthor portion of the story is pretty...

Also includes the Klingon Language version of issue #1!

The Forged Volume 1

These are the Set in a universe that reminds me GREATLY of the Warhammer 40k universe with a Eternal Empress on the throne and “Forged” soldiers based off her DNA that has abilities and mech suits out fighting the filth of the galaxy.

Superman: The Earth Stealers #1

The Man of Steel must find a way to free planet Earth from the clutches of aliens from outer space. This story is pure 80’s cheese, as only John Byrne could do at the time, with a group of space men on the moon witnessing aliens steal the “earth moon system” to feed it into a remote world eating furnace to fuel an alien civilization that’s just barely holding on. Of course Superman being so super was able to save all of humanity by using his wits, strength, and the power of friendship. After everyone got back home they agreed...

Then disgraced engineer Evan Calhoun discovers a murdered Giga, and the very fabric of society stars unraveling around him. This was a monthly series until issue #5, which took 8 months to come out and as the final issue it was good enough that I can recommend the story as it is right now.

Mentally . . . not so much, but she feels ready to actively wear the cape again. Which is good since, between the revelation of her short-lived relationship with Atlas (nine years her senior) and her virally pungent public comments on the current political debate over breakthrough registration (the National Public Safety Act), she needs to raise her profile.

Given the code-name “Astra” and invited to join the Sentinels, Chicago’s premier super-team, will she take up the cape and mask and become a career superhero? Or will she get a handle on her new powers (super-strength has some serious drawbacks) and then get on with her life-plan?In a world where superheroes join...
