The Black Country (a book review)

At this point, author Alex Grecian has several more "Scotland Yard's Murder Squad" novels out and about. The Black Country is the second one in the series and also the second one I have read after the outstanding The Yard (read the review here). The Black Country differs quite a bit from the first novel. The locale is... Continue Reading →

2017 Reviewed!

2017 is officially in the rearview mirror, which means it’s that time of year again, when the underworked and overpaid staff here at MojoFiction answer important questions from our readers about things and stuff that happened in the past year. Questions ranged across many subject matters, so we picked the best of the best. On... Continue Reading →

The Gods of Guilt (a book review)

It’s no secret that I think Michael Connelly is a top mystery writer. I read a short interview awhile back (can’t remember when, sorry) where he stated that he mostly makes it up as he goes along. I’m sure he already has an endgame, but it sounds like he’s willing to let the characters lead... Continue Reading →

The Templars (a book review)

  Ah, the Templars. So much mystery, so much legend, so many trashy adventure novels written about them. And I mean trashy in a good way, because I bought those adventure novels.

Heartbreak Hotel (a book review)

MojoFiction Judges America (or tries to)

Obviously, someone didn’t think that through, what with our recent performance serving on the parole board for O.J. Simpson: O.J.’s Lawyer: “As you can see, when he’s not committing violent crimes, my client is a model prisoner and all... Continue Reading →

Monstress (a comic book review)

Readers know that I like comic books. But superhero comics have lost a lot of charm for me over the years, to the point where I actively seek out alternative stories. Monstress is the comic book I’ve been looking for. This review is the first volume, sub-titled “Awakening.” Monstress follows Maika Halfwolf, an Arcanic, half... Continue Reading →

IT (a book review)

Stephen King’s IT is 30 years old and has been reviewed by more than enough people. But, what the heck, let’s go for it First, I liked this novel. I liked it a lot. It’s the kind of epic you don’t see much of these days, what with modern novels spoon-feeding our short attentions with... Continue Reading →
