The Dangerous Dimension
Galaxy Press LLC., 2010
Have you ever wanted the ability to think of a place and then be there? Well. that is what Dr. Mudge can do - only he hasn't quite mastered this ability yet so it's causing some problems for him. Very fun story. Very entertaining!
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Del Rey, 2007

Brave New World
Brave New World is an incredibly though-provoking book...although, some of the thoughts that it provokes are incredibly disturbing. Huxley creates a dystopic society where peace and stability are maintained because humanity has used technology to do away with ideas and feelings like love, family, religion, and individuality. There are no books. All members of society are genetically engineered to ...
Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #3: Paragon
Great read, better then the first two. In most of the Star Wars books the sith are just glanced over (if talked about at all), I like getting to know them better. Kind of like getting to know the stormtroopers better in the Star Wars Republic Commando books.
Star Wars: Lost Tribe of the Sith #4: Savior
Good but not like others
It is as well written as the other Tribe of the Sith books, but it was way to short. I know the other three are not long ebooks but this one seemed hurried a bit. This book focuses on a Sith power play, and the natives trying to get there land/lives back form the Sith. The story abruptly ends as soon as the power plays finish, I would have liked to read more about the after math a bit. Also ...
Tor Books, 2010
Enter a new world
One of my favorite things about books is when they take you into their world so fully that you don't want to leave. Enter's Game is a book like that. The main character, Ender Wiggins, is just who we'd always like to be, flawed enough to know that we could be like him, if only ... I hesitated to move on to the other Ender books, just because I wanted to savor this one a little longer. I read ...
Foundation, by Isaac Asimov
The Foundation series is one of the most renowned arcs in all of science fiction. Spanning several volumes, and thousands of years of time, Asimov provides us with a blueprint for our own decadent, ailing society--a prevention, if you will, against the society of the 21st century, as realized later by men like Stephen Baxter inTitan. In the billion-star inclusive Galactic government, Hari ...
When You Reach Me
Wendy Lamb Books, 2009
Things That I Love About This Book
This is the reigning Newbery Award winner, I FINALLY read this book... in one day. It was awesome. I can totally see why it won the golden Newbery medal. Miranda's mother is practicing to be a contestant on The $20,000 Pyramid... you know, that show where a celebrity describes words and you have to guess them, and then vice versa, and in the end they go into the winners circle and the celeb has ...
Cantrell Media Company, 2010
First sci-fi book and really enjoyed it
just read this on my Kindle. Previously I would never have thought about reading any Sci-Fi - sure, I've enjoyed a couple of big Sci-Fi blockbusters at the cinema, but my reading material is usually mystery/crime/thriller based - has been since I was a teenager (and I've just turned 40 now). OK, for hard core Sci Fi fans this might be nothing special, but I felt pulled into the characters ...
Mission of Honor (Honor Harrington, Book 12)
Successful Reorientation of the Plot
Having just finished reading Mission of Honor, I can say that I am impressed and pleasantly surprised by how successfully David Weber pulled off tying loose plot ends down, expanding the Honorverse, and giving new direction to the series. It is a great challenge to do these three things, especially when the series is some 18 years old and has seen "much of the same" (not a bad thing!) in terms ...
Foundation and Empire
Asimov and the Foundation books are awesome
I loved this series... couldnt put it down. I highly recommend these books to anyone who loves sci-fi.
Flagship (Starship, Book 5)
Highly recommended for prior fans of Resnick's Starship encounters
Starship: Flagship is Book 5 of Mike Resnick's 'Starship' series and is set in 1970 of the Galactic Era, almost three thousand years from now, when the rebel starship Theodore Roosevelt prepares to lead Cole's armada into the Republic even though outnumbered. New threats bring the crew their greatest challenge yet in a military science fiction encounter highly recommended for prior fans of ...
A King of Infinite Space
A Book that Can't Be Bounded in a Nutshell
As an English teacher, I am impressed by the warmth that persists long after the victim of A King of Infinite Space lies cold in her grave as it emanates from the titles of the books in her bookshelf as well as the comments on the papers written by her students. As a Long Beach resident, I witness the well-traveled streets and favorite haunts of my city rendered into the most fitting of ...
All New Square Foot Gardening: Grow More in Less Space!
Cool Springs Press
All New Square Foot Gardening
This is a wonderful book, even for beginning gardeners who wish to try growing food and/or flowers. I followed the directions and put up my garden in one afternoon!
Starship: Mutiny (Starship, Book 1) (Bk. 1)
excellent escape fiction. good dialogue / interesting characters / predictable but not transparent plot. Along the lines of early Clive Cussler
Starship: Pirate (Starship, Book 2)
Mike Resnick Does it Again
It's impossible for Mike Resnick to write a bad book and this is no exception. Easy reading. Nice plot. Another great read!
Space Prison, The Survivors (The science fiction thriller classic!)
ignacio hills press (TM) IgnacioHillsPress.com and e-Pulp Adventures (TM), 2009
Couldn't put it down!
This book was instantly engaging and moved very quickly. There was never a dull moment or slow point. The book isn't broken into traditional chapters, as it wouldn't suit the story which occurs mostly in one large setting; rather, it's subdivided into four parts with logical break points for readers to catch their breath. The book's climax had my heart pounding, and the ending was pleasantly ...
A masterpiece of compelling, highly intelligent, hard Sci-Fi
Asimov's breath-taking third installment of the Foundation saga is the best of the original trilogy, and that's far from a small claim. Driven by various searches for the mysterious, fabled Second Foundation, this book invokes a fascinating cast of scientists, dictators, even future novelists all grappling with the predicted fate of the galaxy and it's obscure relationship to the enigmatic ...
Blue Ocean Strategy: How To Create Uncontested Market Space And Make The Competition Irrelevant
Harvard Business Press, 2005

The book was in very good condition and the delivery was very fast exceed my expectation. It saved my money and time.
Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi: Allies
