OK, February was tough on Books, Bones & Buffy.  I had a lot of commitments in other parts of my life, so I didn’t get to spend enough time on the blog. However, March is going to be exciting!  There will be more reviews and some new things I’ve never tried here, including GIVEAWAYS! That’s […]

Well, here I am.  In the Comic Con waiting room.  This is the virtual room where tens of thousands of people “wait” to get into the online Comic Con registration area. Tickets went on sale at 8:00 a.m., and it took me half an hour just to get into the waiting room.  When the page […]

I have been a fan of Anne Rice since I discovered Interview With the Vampire back in 1976.  In fact I still have the original paperback copy, torn and dog-eared and practically in tatters from many readings.  If you have also read this wonderful book, try to remember how it felt to read it before […]

Hitting bookshelves and digital reading devices today is Matt Ruff’s latest, The Mirage, a mind-bending alternate history tale of “what if:”  What if the events of 9/11 were reversed, and America attacked Iraq instead of the other way around?  Here’s the description from Amazon: 11/9/2001: Christian fundamentalists hijack four jetliners.

Posted February 5, 2012 by Tammy in Reviews / 0 Comments

I received a review copy of Curbchek from the author, and was immediately struck by the intriguing cover.  Curbchek describes the gritty, day-to-day working life of a cop on the city streets, and that cop’s name is Zach Fortier, just like the author.  Now, I’ve actually read quite a few books where the author decides […]
