This is not your typical epic space opera or military adventure, this is more of a type of science-fiction that I would call Social Sci-Fi. It concerns itself with the characters and their interactions with each other and the world around them while keeping the overarching plot in mind. Has some of the best aliens and AI in modern sci-fi. This kicks off a fun, interlaced series of books.
One of the first, and probably one of the most succesful, independent comic series. These are NOT your regular fantasy elves. The Wolfriders are almost feral and are being hunted by the scared human population. Written and drawn by Wendy Pini, this world will suck you in. This complete first volume has the entire first series from beginning to end. The next volume will tell what happens after...
This has been described as Harry Potter as written by Douglas Adams. Accurate description. The plot explores what would happen if the hero prophecied to kill the Big Bad failed - and his best friend did it instead. Our hero eventually ends up involved on the wrong side of a plot to destroy the world. Hilarity ensues. Wonderfully diverse cast both race, sex, and sexuality. Written for teens but this adult enjoyed it immensly.
Imagine what would happen if Scooby Doo meshed with Lovecraft? This is that book. It picks up seven years after the teenage Blyton Summer Detective Club went their separate ways; one has dropped out of college, one is in a mental institution, one just broke out of jail, and one is dead. They get back together when they realize the guy in the rubber costume they jailed last time wasn’t the actual villain. It may really have been a monster after all. Zombies, ghosts, possesion, giant tentacle monsters, and the possible end of the world all make this book an excellent, action-filled, and fun read.
This light mystery series is just downright fun. It doesn’t take itself too seriously and manages to mix in a good historical mystery that intertwines possible supernatural elements and the ubiquitous Essex Girl in England. The first in an entertaining trilogy.
