Swords, Sorcery, and the Small Press: Jeff Wheeler's Landmoor, by Colin Harvey (8/30/04)
Review.
I'd recommend Landmoor to all devotees of heroic fantasy who are willing to be won over by a thoughtful, intelligent action story.
Heat & Sand: A Review of George Alec Effinger's Budayeen Nights, by Colin Harvey (5/17/04)
Review.
Time has lent Effinger's precognition of our New World Order today an eerie accuracy.
Yesterday's Tomorrows: Robert Silverberg's The Science Fiction Hall of Fame, by Colin Harvey (3/15/04)
Review.
These stories utilize most of the genre's staple tropes; first contact, time travel, the end of the world, robots, mutants, space flight, genetic engineering.
Industrial Fantasy: The Light Ages by Ian MacLeod, by Colin Harvey (1/12/04)
Review.
With its rich characterization, superb description, depth of invention, and understanding of the moral complexities of the real world, The Light Ages is one of the major novels of 2003.
Gridlock: The Day Britain Stopped, by Colin Harvey (9/8/03)
Review.
Each incident is so carefully crafted, so seamlessly integrated into the larger narrative, that the feeling of actual events being reported never wavers.
In and Outside the Ekumen: Ursula K. Le Guin's The Birthday of the World: and Other Stories, by Colin Harvey (5/12/03)
Review.
The collection achieves much of its effect from aggregation; the lesser stories gain from the thematic echoes, while those which were good to outstanding on their own now shine like jewels.
