Aetheral Space

A somewhat unambitious intellectual gets caught up in the various plots of political idiots and freedom fighters.

Bringing back fond memories of The Merchants of Venus.






Brick house of text

*updated review*

The pacing is 'brisk'. By that I mean it reads as if you're running downhill at a dead sprint. Which makes it difficult to form any real sense of the characters and world.

I've read up through chapter 5 and what I suspect is going to be the first main plot had just gotten started.

A decent first work, but the style isn't for me.




Just a Bystander

Deep In the Uncanny Valley

Mechanically it's good (Grammer, spelling, how speech is handled, etc). The plot is a bit too dull for me, but I would've enjoyed it in middle school.

The main problem with the story is that the author has no idea how men interact. Most of the chapters felt like The View (only guys!). Maybe the author should rewrite with rule 63 in effect, easiest way to avoid this constant nagging disturbance.

Lost Magic

Five*, but not my kind of story

Not my cup of tea, but I'm a coffee guy. You should read it to find out if you like the flavor yourself.


Honestly I'd give 6 stars for the characters. There's a lot of them, and they're all actual people.


The Legend of Randidly Ghosthound

Whenever I run out of things to read, I re-read this. I always find something I missed, or something I've forgotten about that is now relevant.

Very Yummy Poison

Losing a lot of stars to fake 'politically subtle'. Really heavy on the politics. I'll give one back for the lighthearted splatterpunk feel.
