Project U.L.F.

Stuart Clark kindly offered an advanced copy of his new book, Project U.L.F., for me to review.

Books like this simply validate my love of science fiction. Not only are his characters realistic and interesting, but the storyline is extremely engaging. From the time I first sat down to read, straight through to the end, I was captivated.

Tagged Again…

Ok so Amy tagged me for this meme the other day. You have to write a blog about 10 odd, facts or habits about yourself. Then tag 10 people and visit there comments and tell them they’ve been tagged… I’ll just let those who choose to, consider themselves “tagged.”

1. I have been a science fiction fan for as long as I can remember. It probably stemmed from my father, since I watched whatever he did. This was mainly science fiction, action, and kung fu shows.

2. On the other hand, there are very few dramas that I like. If the point of the movie is to make you think, cry, or feel sorry for someone; I’m not going to like it. And I’m going to absolutely hate it if it doesn’t have a happy ending. Titanic? Hated it.

3. I’m 6′ tall. I take after my father, who’s 6’2″. I remember when I was in high school, finally realizing that my father wasn’t the average height for a man. I was disappointed, to say the least.

Atlantis Rising

Alesia Holliday was kind enough to send me an ARC of her upcoming book, Atlantis Rising: The Warriors of Poseidon, written under the pseudonym Alyssa Day. I love the ocean, folklore about the lost city of Atlantis, and Greek mythology. So, it was a no-brainer that I was excited to get my hands on this book.

13 Great TV Detectives

Having previously done 13 of my favorite Literary Detectives, it’s time for television’s. As you’ll notice, most of these shows were from the 80’s. It was hard to pull from other decades, as these were the years I was growing up; and I have a special fondness for most of those shows. So, here are my favorite 13 TV Detectives:

1. Remington Steele – He’s suave, British, and quotes old movies. Of course, he has to be number one. I’m also including Laura Holt here; as she’s the real detective. “The woman behind the man.” Laura just lets Steele “take all the bows.” She was the role model for young women back then. And Steele was just nice to look at.
Favorite Quotes: “Somebody always shoots at us when we’re kissing!”
And “Paramount, 1956, starring…”
