    Readers and listeners can't get enough of Honor Harrington and her world, and here David Weber is again, accompanied by some of the top science fiction writers in the field - including John Ringo, Eric Flint, Timothy Zahn and Weber himself - with new adventures of the best starship commander in the galaxy, and explorations of previously uncharted corners of her universe. It's a party - and you're invited!

    Not all of the Worlds of Honor books have held, in my opinion, the highest of standards. This one does. It adds some more stories to the already diverse Honorverse - and does it beautifully. All Honorverse fans should read this book - you'll enjoy it!

    Seventy years ago, the interstellar supercarrier Ark Royal was the pride of the Royal Navy. But now, her weapons are outdated and her solid-state armour nothing more than a burden on her colossal hull. She floats in permanent orbit near Earth, a dumping ground for the officers and crew the Royal Navy wishes to keep out of the public eye. But when a deadly alien threat appears, the modern starships built by humanity are no match for the powerful alien weapons.

    Story

    The Ark Royal and her crew are not the finest in this future British Navy. What no one knew was this Captain and Crew are underrated. A great story that is well written, the story is interesting in that many of the sci-fi clichés are not followed. Will pick up the next book!

    Newcago is free. They told David it was impossible, that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet Steelheart - invincible, immortal, unconquerable - is dead. And he died by David's hand.Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life simpler. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And no one in Newcago can give him answers.Babylon Restored, the city formerly known as the borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though.

    Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, along with the men and women of the U.S.S. Walker, are once again at war. Having sided with the peaceful Lemurians against the savage, reptilian Grik, they now find themselves scrambling to prepare for the attack that is sure to come, searching for resources to support their forces - even as they look for allies to join their struggle.

  • Ender’s World: Fresh Perspectives on the SF Classic Ender’s Game

    Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game is a science fiction classic. In Ender’s World almost two dozen writers offer new perspectives on the 1985 novel, along with insights gleaned from other Ender stories that fit within the Ender’s Game chronology. In addition, military strategists Colonel Tom Ruby and Captain John Schmitt offer insight into the human-Formic war.

    Homicidal is the story of the almost 25-year serial-murder crime spree of Lonnie Franklin Jr., who is alleged to have killed at least 10 women in Los Angeles, if not more. Nicknamed by the media the Grim Sleeper, because there appeared to be a 13-year lull in the killings, Franklin met most of the women through random encounters that ended in murder. Significant blunders by the Los Angeles Police Department helped Franklin avoid arrest for years.

    This is a good read and it is read well. The story is interesting but ends without knowing what happened.

    Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, along with the men and women of the USS Walker, have chosen sides in a war not of their making. They have allied with the Lemurians - a mammalian race whose peaceful existence is under attack from the warlike, reptilian Grik. The Lemurians are vastly outnumbered and ignorant of warfare, and even the guns and technology of Walker cannot turn the tide of battle.

    This book was an excellent follow up to the first book. The narrator works very well with the material and the material is very well written. The historical accuracy of the equipment portrayed is top notch and the world that has been established in these two books is compelling and rich. This series is definitely on my recommended list!

    This is an exclusive, original adventure for the 10th Doctor, read by David Tennant. Featuring additional music and effects, Doctor Who: Dead Air has never been previously published. Hot on the heels of a creature that exists through sound, the Doctor lands on a pirate radio station boat in the late 1960s. The creature has already killed some of the DJs, and the Doctor befriends the survivors. But then the lights go out, and a desperate race for survival begins.

    A great stand alone Doctor Who Story set with the 10th Doctor. Having David Tennant read this is incredible - it is short - but tight and well written. Worth the download!

    Story

    I'll admit it - I'm an Enderverse fan. I've read almost all the books (think I'm short one) and I've watched the movie at least twice now. Although this audioplay is very close to the novel - it isn't exact (based upon my memory) but the full cast audio play makes that worth it. There is something about having each part performed by a different voice that brings a dimension to this over a normal audio book and it is a good dimension. Enderverse fans will already love it - first timers to the Ender's Game world will love it as well.

    African diamonds are being smuggled into the United States, and it's up to the British Secret Service to infiltrate the organized crime families in America and destroy the smugglers. James Bond is not afraid of gangsters, but then he hasn't really met any until now. With advice from his American friend, Felix Leiter, Bond tracks a diamond smuggling ring from Africa through London to the United States.

    Story

    Another Bond novel that goes out of its way to remind us that Bond is a human, not someone who jumps directly to the case being solved. He misses things and occasionally gets things wrong. He regrets killing people and this internal struggle adds another piece to the puzzle of the man who is James Bond. Excellently read and an excellent story - combine to equal another great experience.

    When James Bond is asked to settle a dispute over "ungentlemanly behavior" at an exclusive gambling club, the affair is embarrassing in the extreme, for the accused is the unimpeachable Sir Hugo Drax: business tycoon, popular hero, patriot extraordinaire, and head of the multimillion-dollar Moonraker missile program on which Britain's future defense depends.

    Story

    Simon Vance's performance of this book leaves nothing to be desired - each character sounds different and the story flows perfectly from him. The story itself is very well written - the post WWII England setting makes for a believable plot and the fact that Bond isn't a superhuman guy who always gets everything right on the first try makes him a believable character. Bond fans will love this one.
