#FridayReads: Declan Finn reviews
Yes, I read books. As often as I can.
You may remember that I’ve been reviewing books over at Upstream reviews for the better part of the year.
Why? Because there are good books out there that don’t get nearly enough attention. Also, we’ve gotten enough eyes on the articles that I’m getting paid. Yippie.
Over at Upstream, we usually analyze the politics of books, but that’s in a self-contained section. Why look at the politics? In part, because there are some people who can’t separate entertainment from political discourse. Also in part because there are people who would like to go into a book knowing that the book isn’t going to break out into a lecture in the middle of the action.
The following books I reviewed in September for Upstream. And at Upstream Reviews, if we review a book, we loved the book. No exceptions (yet).
SONS OF HEAVEN, BY CHUCK DIXON (from the man who created Bane in the comic books)
REVIEW: MURDER IN THE VATICAN, THE CHURCH MYSTERIES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES (Self explanatory)
REVIEW: ANOTHER GIRL, ANOTHER PLANET, BY LOU ANTONELLI (A murder mystery with Blade Runner as a subplot)
REVIEW: JOHN C WRIGHT’S IRON CHAMBER OF MEMORY (Epic fantasy that battles all the forces of Hell, and still contains a sense of wonder.)
REVIEW: THE UNBEARABLE HEAVINESS OF REMEMBERING, BY L. JAGI LAMPLIGHTER (We don’t need no Harry Potter)
REVIEW: ESCAPING INFINITY, BY RICHARD PAOLINELLI (Rod Serling does the Hotel California)
More to come. Though you could just sign up for Upstream Reviews and be done with it.
