I so wanted to love this short story.  It is rockers, and that’s a favorite genre of mine.  The problem, however, is that I hated the main character.  Razor is a selfish guitarist in the band the Evil Psycho Gods.  They are playing a gig at the Loaded Snail (yes, love the names), and he is onstage scouting his one-off for the night. He is on the lookout for a … Continue reading

This is a short story from the Less Than Three Valentine bundle.  This is a fantasy story that seemed historical when I first started reading, until I realized Kennet was reading the newspaper, so not as medieval as I thought.  Kennet’s best friend is Brennar, who also happens to be Kennet’s secret love. Brennar is the heir to an estate, and to add to his gloriousness, he is chosen as the … Continue reading

I was never a Sherlock Holmes fan – like I have read NONE of the books/stories and I was bored out of my mind when the old Basil Rathbone movies were on WGN Family Classics when I was a kid, so I didn’t go into this with any preconceived notions – which might be good.  Anyway, I sort of know the deal with Holmes and Watson, but … Continue reading
