“An Oath of Wintersteel” by JM Guillen

An Oath of Wintersteel is the latest book by evil mastermind JM Guillen, who has fast become one of my favorite authors. Guillen’s series The Paean of Sundered Dreams is a lot like Brandon Sanderson’s Cosmere, in that all of his books are set in a shared multiverse despite different times, characters, planets, and even genres. TheRead more

“Rationality Zero” by J.M. Guillen

In Rationality Zero by J.M. Guillen, James Bond meets H.P Lovecraft as a secret agent attempts to save the world from invading eldritch horrors.  (The dictionary on this computer suggests I change the word “eldritch” to “britches,” which is not at the same, although depending on whose britches could be equally as terrifying.)

Slave of the Sky Captain is undoubtedly my favorite thus far in J.M. Guillen’s Lovecraftian saga The Paean of Sundered Dreams.  For any of you who haven’t been following my reviews, The Paean of Sundered Dreams is a series of novellas that are set in the same world and linked together by thematic content.  In each story soRead more

The Herald of AutumnRead more
