Injustice Quick Reviews 3

Cower not, fierce reader! We have an assortment of stories to sink your teeth into! No, not like that! Just devour these the normal way, and look out for idioms.

Fight the Rooster by Nick Cole- Dude, where's my apocalypse? Yes, the modern master of apocalyptic fiction has decided to show that he's more than just a zombie/robot fighter. This is seriously a work of good literature, both loving and lampooning Hollywood, its people, and flaws. 9/10 fell deeds.

Starship Grifters by Robert Kroese- This is a wonderful, loving lampooning of the most popular SF property. The characters are good, the laughs keep coming, and I'm waiting for more. This does fall under some of the rare SFF that should appeal regardless of political/religious stripe. Heckuva fun ride, though. 7/10 fell deeds.

Codename: Winterborn by Deland Finn and Allan Yoskowitz- Ok, while I've read the Sean AP Ryan books, I didn't expect Declan to quite get into John Ringo territory(Ghost series, minus the sex). Action packed, and not a bit of disappointment to be had. Perhaps a bit of overuse on quotes from the Prisoner. NAH, that's almost impossible. Now caught up on Mr. Finn's publicly available fiction, so there's that. 8/10 fell deeds.

The Hidden Truth by Hans Schantz-Mr. Schantz was kind enough to send me a copy of this tale, as he is quite unhappy with the lack attention by SJWs. This is a quite capable story, perhaps needing some work on dialog, but overall very entertaining.  We have mistrust of government, secret societies, murderous conspiracies, and even the true reasons of feminism. I'd like to see more of this world. 7/10 fell deeds.

 Tom by David Freer- Yes, I took Mr. Freer up on his offer in the remarks after my commentary on the F770 outrage over the Dragon Awards.  And while the book perhaps could use a little format work, my faith in him from his Mad Genius Club posts has proven well founded. This is an amusing tale that fits firmly in the YA category. Good humor, and lots of references to pop culture. He commits the crime of a corrupt bureaucracy moving much of the action, when of course the government has your best interests in mind.   7/10 fell deeds.

When you play Social Justice, the world loses.
