  • The Three Talents of Timothy O'Dowd on Dec. 04, 2012

    The author sets his tale in the calm Montreal of 1939. He writes so well that the streets and byways unfold before the reader like a virtual image filled with believable atmosphere of a pre-war world. There is a degree of fantasy in the story – the imagination is teased but not stretched too far. It is a tale of the eternal battle between the archetypes of good and evil; the chosen and the fallen. But there is lightness and comedy and a clutch of inept bad guys I enjoyed the author's clear prose – of a style that invites and holds the reader. I'd have enjoyed it the more if the closing scenes had been extended further.
  • Queens are Wild on Dec. 13, 2012

    A Titan brought low. The intricate moves of the ancient game of chess are now set in a time shift filled with doppelgangers. What at first seems just another pawn in an ego-driven king's game of power, makes her way deep into the enemy house and 'queens' herself, again and again. This is a story full of surprises; one that moves with pace from a 20th century schoolroom with the usual belligerent pupils, through a human, but surreal, chess matrix, into a future where a brash rich man plots to found a new dynasty. Innovative and entertaining.
