Tales from the Rocket Age Reviewing it as a work of fiction, not on the basis of its format, this is a great book, providing exactly what I was looking for: inspiration, world building and some fun stories to kill some time.

BattleTech Legends: Prince of Havoc

BattleTech Legends: Prince of Havoc I have ever loved Stackpole's works, whether with BattleTech, Shadowrun, or Star Wars and, as always, this is an impressive entry to continue the story of the BattleTech universe. It's too bad there are so many spelling and word errors in the novel.

Dark Roots
by Jennifer W.
Publisher: Four Fools Press
Date Added: 04/16/2018 18:28:40
Dark Roots Through the centuries, the Reese family fight incomprehensible evil and pass their knowledge to the next generation, to continue their secret work and defend the innocent against such terrors. Three heroic stories, three different eras, and three very different encounters, though all share roots near the very gates of Hell. AD 1611, Essex, England, and Scotsman James Reese investigates a hovel torn asunder by a nameless beast. Infuriated to find that a helpless child was taken, he meets a Moor who knows this creature of old. Twenty years he has given chase, and Penelton knows how nigh-on impossible it may be to end it's voracious killing spree. The story of The Hunters moves as fast as the chase and fighting to follow, tense with the knowledge that more than the life of a child and the soul of a man are at stake. Shamelessly I admit my favorite tale in this volume is The Fox and the Hound, set in 1777 during the American Revolution. The Fox, a blockade-running schooner, captaine...

Red Sickening Lights, Manila Always loved the Philippines and Vampire. This brings it together. Interesting characters and a great setting making Metro Manila a battleground for several Archbishops and a beleaguered Prince. Good storyline making hunger for more.

Steel Ambition
by Jennifer W.
Publisher: Four Fools Press
Date Added: 04/03/2018 20:45:49
Steel Ambition This strange and mysterious tale made me feel the cold and sense that dismal time in Siberia during the reign of Tsar Nicholas II. We meet Padarovich, a disgraced and exiled Colonel, after a disastrous Japanese offensive defeated the Tsar’s forces in China. The year is 1908, the beginning of a new era, though most don’t yet realize it, though the winds of change are blowing. Russia’s military is demoralized, there is rising unrest in the working class, and a bizarre and disastrous crash, possibly a meteor strike, has been witnessed in the small backwater known as Vanavara. Colonel Padarovich follows the trail north and discovers a technological wonder far beyond his capabilities to understand. Who created it? Not the Tsar, surely, probably not the Chinese, but perhaps the Empire of Japan, so secretive yet possessing great technological prowess. Padarovich does not know for certain, but hopes that acquiring this colossus might change his fortune. Then he meets young Bolshevik Ios...

Their Blood Is the Sea
by FJ R.
Publisher: Skirmisher Publishing
Date Added: 04/02/2018 19:15:15
Their Blood Is the Sea Not truly an avid fan of the genre, but I am a fan of good writing. And this story delivers. I was captured right from the first paragraph, immediately and sympathetically drawn to the old seafarer and the main character, Merevec. And then launched across the deck by a remorseless nightmare of a story that doesn’t let up — not even by the last sentence. The descriptive phrases of sea and battle are precise, tactile, and picturesque. You really feel that you are lurching on that storm-tossed ship. Clint’s knowledge of the era and seafaring really shines through with a brutal realism. You are never left wondering what is going on — you feel the unforgiving environment viscerally so strong is his command of the terminology and his flare for storytelling. Do you want a rousing adventure with a sinister undertow of sorcery and eldritch horror? Then read this story....

Their Blood Is the Sea

Their Blood Is the Sea Just read this piece of short fantasy/horror fiction. A nicely crafted tale and just long enough. The author's obvious familiarity with the historical period and nautical terminology comes through strongly. It lends a sense of historical authenticity that pervades the story. This helps give an overall sense of verisimilitude to the setting. Having done a limited amount of sailing in my youth, I could clearly visualize the action and events. The story achieves what any author hopes for, it gives the reader all five of the senses and therefore places them at the heart of the events. It also blends two genres very well with some unexpected results; historical fantasy and eldritch horror. For fans of the pulps, all of the essentials are here; a stalwart hero facing seafaring danger and desperate, bloody hand to hand combat in an unforgiving environment as likely to kill as the enemy. Here too you get a mythos style melding of Greek lore and Lovecraft. This is a great piece of debu...

Their Blood Is the Sea Their Blood Is The Sea is a historical/fantasy by Clint Staples. It is a well written story that exhibits his love not only for fantasy literature but also the deep knowledge he has of history. It is a short story but one full of depth. His descriptive text is spot on and he does an excellent job of creating relatable characters. I thouroughly enjoyed the read and am looking forward to more fiction from Clint in the future.

KOBOLD Guide to Worldbuilding

KOBOLD Guide to Worldbuilding This review is a summarised version. For the full version, head over to [Swords & Stationery](https://swordsandstationery.com/roll-for-insight-
/review-kobold-guide-to-worldbuilding/). When it comes to creating new things, ideas are a dime a dozen. Everyone has an opinion. Yet, it is easier said than done to create something that's logically coherent. Furthermore, the well of ideas tends to run dry too after a while. This is where the KOBOLD Guide to Worldbuilding comes in. While not exactly "meaty", it has plenty of advice covering a wide range of topics. Each topic takes up about 5 pages of information, but it's concise and to the point. If I had to nitpick though, it's that not all the topics are equally well-written, but that's to be expected from having so many contributors. Art in the book is also a little sparse. It would have benefited from having more accompanying visuals....

Maiden's Preyer
by Brittany T.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 03/28/2018 09:14:10
Maiden's Preyer I was stuck on the first page until I read it a couple of times, acclimating to the setting and the darkness/dread therein perhaps, before chugging through the rest of this short story like I was in a race. Maiden's Preyer is captivating and carries the suspense all the way to the last paragraph. Then the Afterword confirms a theme so necessary in today's climate, approached from a place of determination for change rather than fear of it. I love this bold and bloody story, and I'm excited to read more of Kelly's adventures. ...

Russian Apemen from Space
by Jennifer W.
Publisher: Four Fools Press
Date Added: 03/18/2018 17:39:33
Russian Apemen from Space Decades in stasis, now Russian Officer Lophyya awakens within the spaceship Null, but immediately he knows something isn't right. Alarms blare and that ever-calm computer voice isn't helping his nerves. Instinct and enhanced intelligence spur the apeman to determine where they are, what has gone wrong, if his Captain lives, and their beloved mates. Their ship, crippled, knocked off course, but their mission paramount, to defend Mother Russia, or die. Their ship has crashed deep within the Earth's hollow core, though these genetically modified Russian Apemen don't know that yet. Lophyya succeeds in awakening his Captain Bahznt, just in time to fend off a sudden attack! Approaching the Null is a squadron of mutated Atlantean Warriors, whose mission it is to determine who these interlopers are, what threat they pose, to take their technology, and destroy them. I can easily imagine these mighty ape-men with thick, Russian accents. The quick fighting action throws Lophyya into pure ...

H.G. Wells' Little Wars

H.G. Wells' Little Wars Yes. It was written by THAT H.G. Wells. It's a really good system and simple introduction for wargaming and a lot of fun. I'll be honest though, I got for the historical significance. I just wanted to own one of the first war games. If you are a bit of a fanboy or fangirl for this stuff, you need to own "H.G. Wells' Little Wars".
