Book Review: Without a Summer by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(April 27, 2013)
"Don't judge a book but it's cover" is an oft intoned maxim which we're all equipped with. We use it with great frequency as both a teaching too and as a stern warning about being judgmental. So imagine my inner turmoil when Without a Summer arrived in the

Book Review: Shattered Pillars by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(April 01, 2013)
From time to time, the fantasy genre can grow stale. Like a rock gathering moss, forward moment is required to shake off that taste of similarity it can acquire. Sword and sorcery needs an infusion of spice occasionally, to cleanse the pallet. Elizabeth Be

Book Review: Homeland by Chuck Francisco, Columnist and Critic
(March 16, 2013)
