Time travel and plague make for a very bad combination. Brilliantly written but unremittingly depressing.

The last book in the trilogy that began with Last Call and continued in Expiration Date. Multiple personalities and a ghost catching house make for a wizbang finale.

A very different view of "why are we here?" More out there than The Forever War but still a good read.

An deep look at the difference between western culture - this is my thing - and eastern culture - this is my land. As always Tom Friedman helps us understand the sources of conflict in the middle east from the cause end rather than the effect.

Shifter (Chronicles of Galen Sword, Bk 1)
Review Date: 12/4/2008


Shifter is the first book in the Galen Sword series. It is a rich and fascinating fantasy world which overlaps on our modern real world. A great read but unfortunately the books come out very far apart.
