In case you've wondering who this Tizzy guy is, although his title of Destroyer of Worlds and Eater of the Innocent should really suffice.
A trio of amateur heroines battle an evil, lawsuit-happy science-fiction cult in the first novel in the Neitherlands series.
Into the Drowning Deep (Rolling in the Deep #1) by Mira Grant November 14, 2017 Review rating 4/5 A horror film disguised as a book. That’s the main thing I can say about Mira Grant’s Into the Drowning Deep: It feels, and reads, very much like a horror film. In that way it’s different from […]
Space Opera by Catherynne M. Valente April 10, 2018 Review rating 3/5 Sometimes less is more.

Artificial Condition (Murderbot Diaries #2) by Martha Wells May 8, 2018 Review rating 4/5 Murderbot is back for seconds.

In All Systems Red, Wells takes a different direction…
