The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss


The Wise Man’s Fear is the continuation of Patrick Rothfuss’s brilliant debut novel, The Name of the Wind. It’s every bit as enjoyable as the first, and it’s about three hundred pages longer, which is always a welcome improvement. Day two of Kvothe the Arcane’s chronicle of his life features his adventures among the Adem […]

The Amazing Spider-Man Trailer


After the unfortunate Spider-Man 3, Sony Pictures commissioned two scripts. One for a fourth film, and another for a reboot of the series. They ended up choosing to go the reboot route over continuing where Spider-Man 3 left off. The Amazing Spider-Man is an attempt to return to the Spider-Man of the comics, complete with […]

Harbingers by F. Paul Wilson


Harbingers, book ten in the Repairman Jack series, seems like the beginning of the end. Jack has been dragged into the middle of the battle between the Otherness and the Ally, and his fate as the Heir to the immortal Sentinel is revealed. But it soon becomes clear that though the Ally opposes the Otherness […]

Infernal by F. Paul Wilson


Infernal, the ninth book of F. Paul Wilson’s Repairman Jack series, is pretty dark. It’s tricky to go into detail without major plot spoilers, so let’s just say being a lightning rod for encounters with the Otherness is hazardous to those around you. Infernal breaks the usual formula of “fix it” jobs with a larger […]

Secret Histories, Secret Circles and Secret Vengeance by F. Paul Wilson


Jack: Secret Histories,  Jack: Secret Circles and Jack: Secret Vengeance comprise F. Paul Wilson’s YA trilogy about the younger years of Repairman Jack. My introduction to the character was through this spin-off series (via Secret Histories), which led me to pick up Legacies and get into the main story. Now that the last two books […]

The Magic Engineer by L. E. Modesitt


The Magic Engineer is, possibly, my favorite of the Recluce books I have read so far. Like the rest of the books in the series, it’s set in a different age, with different characters and different political factions. The Chaos wizards of Fairhaven still have a hegemony extending across most of Candar, and they’re still […]

The Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson


Three hundred years after the events in the original Mistborn trilogy, Brandon Sanderson’s The Alloy of Law gives a glimpse of what the world of Scadrial has become. The magic is the same, though it has evolved a little, with the addition of a couple new metals. The thriving city of Elendel now has trains […]
