An easy science fiction read with plenty of twists. Any book I enjoy reading from cover to cover in one hit is a good book! I look forward to a sequel!

This review is from: Globular Van der Graff’s Goblin Tales for Adults (Kindle Edition)
This book has 30 short but immensely enjoyable stories about five Goblin brothers and their ‘Humin’ friend.
Unlike many fantasy tales involving Humans and Goblins, this book contains no gory bits, spurious violence or endless wars, nevertheless, it is very entertaining.
Be careful though, especially if you tend to read out loud to yourself, the temptation to utter the words spoken by the Goblins is overwhelming and if you are in a packed commuter train or bus, you may get funny looks from your fellow travellers.
Mind you, you may also get more space to stretch out and get comfortable as they sidle away from you….


An Intriguing Read


I give this book five well deserved stars.

It takes  a while to get going.  But, Andrew G. Claymore’s science fiction novel ‘The Black Ships’ is worth taking the time to read. The premise is intriguing to say the least. What happened to the employees of a mining company sent to Mars? What actually occurs is not for me to tell, but for you to find out as I did – you won’t be disappointed.

Like most people we meet in everyday life , some we instantly like, others we detest. To that end, Claymore has created a fascinating cross-section of individuals for you to conjure with.  If, like me, you love believable pure Science Fiction, you will find this a thoroughly enjoyable read.
