Book Review Program
Stark and the Star Kings/Edmund Hamilton & Leigh Brackett. (Haffner Press) A collection from the late husband and wife science fiction writers, featuring their only previously unpublished collaboration. Rollicking space opera for teenagers. RAL
City of Falling Angels/John Berendt. First-rate follow up to Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil/RW
Shalimar the Clown/Salman Rushdie. A superb novel about terrorism and its relationship to America, set in Kashmir, in World War II France and elsewhere. A stunning achievement. RW &RAL.
The Cult of Alien Gods/Jason Colavito (Prometheus Books). A terrible attempt to link Lovecraft with other writers. RAL.
The King in the Window/Adam Gopnik. A kids fantasy with greater depth when read in tandem with Gopnik's earlier Paris to the Moon.
Reviewers: Richard Wolinsky/Richard A. Lupoff.
