Book Review: Matt Margini’s Red Dead Redemption

Oh hey, Boss Fight Books is back! This ‘season’ of Boss Fight Books is looking to be a fun one.

Book Review: Firefly, Big Damn Heroes, by Nancy Holder & James Lovegrove.

Book Review: Cynthia Leal Massey’s Death of a Texas Ranger

Don’t worry, my dozens of faithful readers! I haven’t forgotten about this blog. I actually finished this book last week, but I’ve been busy (and I’m still busy, really) so I haven’t been able to sit down and hammer out a review until now. Picking up Fallout: New Vegas probably didn’t help much either. Anyway, every …
