In eigenen Worten:
I've been an avid reader of science fiction for 40+ years, and my tastes are very eclectic. I read everything from hard science fiction to fantasy to horror, and admit my guilty pleasure is reading vampire fiction.
I live in Fairbanks, Alaska, and my other hobbies include membership in the Society for Creative Anachronism, needlework, going to movies with my friends, exploring astrology and the … Mehr dazu

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing fare, 25. Juli 2000
This 1994 collaboration came to me used, via a friend, which I read primarily because it was available when I needed a book in hand quickly (can't be caught without reading material, now can we?). Much as I like Mercedes Lackey, this is not a book I would have bought, due to the Piers Anthony influence. I found the characters superficial, with a cumbersome and contrived sexual situation, more typical of Anthony than Lackey. I have ceased reading Anthony over the years, feeling that he has been almost a caricature of himself and extremely formulaic. I was not too surprised to discover that Lackey developed an idea/outline of Anthony's, which he then edited and added 10,000 words. I… Mehr dazu

4.0 von 5 Sternen A fantasy classic, 13. Mai 2000
When Stealer of Souls and Stormbringer were first published in the 1960s, there wasn't much fantasy around. William Morris, Lord Dunsany and others of that generation were long out of print; Robert E. Howard's Conan stories were tied up in probate. The Lord of the Rings had just come out, and had turned our heads. Previously the world of science fiction was dominated by hard science fiction -- tales of space exploration, and aliens. Those of us who discovered we liked the fantasy also craved more. If we were lucky, we discovered Joy Chant's Red Moon and Black Mountain, a clever British tale of English schoolchildren whisked into a epic adventure in an alternate world. And then… Mehr dazu

3.0 von 5 Sternen Fast-paced thriller, 7. Mai 2000
This is a dandy adventure story. In the center of all the action is Gulf Stream, an offshore structure dedicated to research and "green" industry. Add a group of ecoterrorists determined to destroy it, a dedicated group of employees striving to save it from all enemies including economic difficulties, undercover agents, a hurricane, a bit of romance and a wayward octopus named Louis, and you have the setting for some interesting action. It has a nice mix of male and female characters, with Emma Took (who designed Gulf Stream) taking the lead. I had some difficulty sorting out all the characters at first. And despite the drawings of the Gulf Stream, I didn't always know… Mehr dazu
