Quick Reviews 2.13

Cower not, fierce reader! This day we have a fine collection of tales to cause the SocJus crowd to flee in terror. We've got milsf, fantasy, unspeakable horror, and more to look at. To the guilty!

Peacemaker by Keven Ikenberry- This is a continuation of his short from For a Fistful of  Credits, though you needn't read that first to follow the novel. Yep, another Horsemen universe book, with more to come before year's end. So when do these guys start taking meetings?  Major crime: Redemption can be costly. 8 of 10 fell deeds.

King's Champion by Peter Grant- Well, we have an acient evil trying to rise again, and the champion of good isn't anywhere near his peak. Why? He's OLD, and has gotten slower. But he still holds the title of King's Champion, and all its authority. Major crime: Self sacrifice for what one loves. 9 of 10 fell deeds.

Good to the Last Drop by Declan Finn-  This is the last story for this arc, and the action is bigger than anything yet. We've got more ninjas, vampires, werewolves, cops and gangsters in the mix, and a volatile mix it is. Great place to end the set. Major crime: How Catholic does it have to be? 8 of 10 fell deeds.

Cannibal Hearts by Misha Burnett- Second of his Book of Lost Doors, this has a lot of weird. Make no mistake, there's action here as well, this is no HPL book full of academics. There's action and violence aplenty. The weird content and sexual content definitely keep this from being for everyone. Major crime: Struggling to be human and normal. 7 of 10 fell deeds

Six Gun Seranade by David J. West-  There's two stories here. The first is a Porter Rockwell tale, that follows an innocent swept up in events he can't control. The next is a tale of gambling, murder, betrayal and greed in the Weird West.  Major crime: Don't let greed get the better of you. 8 of 10 fell deeds.

When you play Social Justice, the world loses.
