One of my mom's child - hood favorites that I have been hearing about all my life. This volume not only consists of the title book but one of his other books as well as information about his life and a bit about his movies. Mom was thrilled!

I picked up the sample and didn't think twice about shelling out at the end of it. I fully expect to devour the entire series.

5.0 out of 5 stars as well as life at Indigo Cloud after 'The Siren Depths' and are like a visit with dear friends, August 10, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you've read any of Wells stories about the Raksura, you know what to expect. These shorts give us glimpses of Moon's past, as well as life at Indigo Cloud after 'The Siren Depths' and are like a visit with dear friends.
If you haven't read the other Raksura stories, start with 'The Cloud Roads'. You'll work your way back to this.
Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars and yet awesome. It's a Rob Thurman short, February 23, 2015

Odd, disquieting, and yet awesome. It's a Rob Thurman short, and if you read her before I need say no more.

4.0 out of 5 stars but bought this for 'The War Chief' and 'The Apache Devil' which were great favorites of mine in high school, February 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Haven't read the first two stories, but bought this for 'The War Chief' and 'The Apache Devil' which were great favorites of mine in high school. At several decades remove I am impressed that ERB did manage to treat the Apache as human, which was unexpected for his day. Attitudes of the time are still visible, and ERB manages to conflate 'Whoa' (Chief Juh) with his spokesman Geronimo, but again that was typical of the day. A tale of grand adventure and forbidden(?) love, in all the two are a classic Burroughs romance. Enjoy!

While this could be read as a stand-alone, it is actually part of Gockel's 'I Bring the Fire' series. If you've been reading the series, you know what to expect. If you haven't, you need to start with part 1: Wolves, which is available as a free download. Enjoy!

Gockel's writing continues to improve, and her use of myth and pop-culture add depth to an already rich world. If you've been reading the series, you know what to expect. If you haven't, you need to start with part 1: Wolves, which is available as a free download. Enjoy!


The Death of the Necromancer

5.0 out of 5 stars and winds up on the trail of a murderer who's been preying on the poor. He tries hard to convince himself, August 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
An homage to a famous detective and his nemesis, set in a well-developed fantasy world that might also qualify as steam-punk, the story has depth and twists and is an all-around pleasure. Nicholas is finalizing a decade-long conspiracy to bring justice to someone beyond the reach of the law when he runs into a complication that threatens his plans, and winds up on the trail of a murderer who's been preying on the poor. He tries hard to convince himself, and everyone else, hunting down the murderer is only ancillary to his search for revenge, but you'll have to decide that for yourself. Most of Martha Wells' books are on my 'favorite reads' shelf, and this one I finally had to get on Kindle because I keep giving away my hard-copies. Not only are her characters and plot satisfying, but she manages to feed us sensory detail and develop her worlds without bogging down the action.
Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars not just for academics, May 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Yes, I read it for a class, but I've since passed it on to my parents who are also enjoying it. The author is writing the book from the perspective of an experienced academic, using his field notes from his first field experience, so we get the perspective of both. He blends narrative and insight so that it does not read like a text, yet educates the reader to the complexities of the situations and the anthropological perspective. He is writing about a place and people he clearly cares deeply for, and has insight that is important for understanding such issues as climate change, foreign aid (that is NOT helpful if the providers don't understand the local situation) and acculturation.
NOTE: even the non-readers in the class enjoyed it, and discussions were lively..
