August 29, 2014 Bekka, book review, forgotten fridays, Lyn 4

Lyn: Alright, I hope that more »

I wasn’t expecting any surprises or any new ground covered by Gates of Thread and Stone.  I thought it was the run-of-the-mill sci-fi book with a nice cover.  There is nothing wrong with this, since I do not begrudge this category.  I liked to be entertained, and there is nothing wrong with that. So I was slightly blindsided by this more »
