Wyoming, just after the US civil war, and bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) is bringing in his prisoner, Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh). He is known as The Hangman, because when a warrant says “dead or alive” he always brings them in alive. His bounties don’t escape the noose. And his current prisoner has […]
This is the story of a scientist who falls in love and marries. But his wife, although beautiful, has a flaw. A birthmark in the shape of a small red hand upon her cheek. Unluckily for her she is very very beautiful and, as her only flaw, this mark is a disaster. Or at least […]
The Strain Trilogy #3 I really enjoyed the first book in this series, The Strain worked really well as a competent vampire story. It was creepy and horrible and very readable. The second book, The Fall, I didn’t enjoy quite so much, but I still liked it. Solid, but still very readable. But this one, […]

ISBN: 0413513505 See also: Spike Magazine This book, one of the classics of fantasy literature, did absolutely nothing for me. Okay, that is a slight exageration, because there were some touches that appealed to me. The whole fairy tale atmosphere. The house of different fronts. The randomness of so much of it.

ISBN: 0006483879 Found this to be a very disappointing read. I read the previous two in this series: The Silver Wolf and The Night of the Wolf and while neither of them are spectacularly great novels they were both interesting, well-written stories. Despite being set in the same world, and dealing with many of the […]
