Acolytes of Cthulhu
by Robert M. Price

If you’re looking for a collection that leans more towards the classic style of Lovecraft then I think Acolytes of Cthulhu is a worthy addition to your TBR list.

Kings of the Wyld
by Nicholas Eames

Great premise but a failure to deliver on well developed characters and a storyline that fell back onto child antics too often left a bitter taste in my mouth on this one.

Smoke Eaters
by Sean Grigsby

A very cool premise that fails in the execution step. It's an enjoyable, albeit forgettable, read.

Baptism of Fire
by Andrzej Sapkowski

The best book in the series so far, Baptism of Fire is marked by a series of notable events and characters who keep the pace moving and the reader's interest as Geralt (finally) takes center stage.

Time of Contempt
by Andrzej Sapkowski

Geralt remains AWOL for much of this book, which really is a shame because he has so much potential as a main POV character. Unfortunately, Time of Contempt continues the downward slide in ratings for this series.

Blood of Elves
by Andrzej Sapkowski

Jilted storytelling and a main character who is missing for much of the book makes Blood of Elves a two rocket read for me.

The Drawing of the Three
by Stephen King

A promising series fizzles out for me almost from the get-go in this second book in the Dark Tower series.

Book Reviews

The Last Wish
by Andrzej Sapkowski

This first installment in the Witcher series didn't knock me off my feet, but it did suprise me with the depth of some of the stories. It's a good read and the start of something hopefully really good.

The Blade Itself
by Joe Abercrombie

The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie is a gritty, in-your-face, rollicking good time of a story. Full of deeply thought out, colorful characters, there's something for every fan of the fantasy genre here.
