The Last American Man by Elizabeth Gilbert
The Last American Man

terry weide, January 1, 2010

One of the most entertaining and in-depth biographies of the last decade. It would be hard to invent a character as colorful as outdoorsman Eustace Conway. Elizabeth Gilbert does an excellent job of showing the many facets of this complex man, of bringing his strengths and quirks to life. That Conway is real only serves to fire the enjoyment of the reader. The book reminds us of our frontier spirit and of the skills we could cultivate if we chose to do so. A work that should be on everyone's must read list.

The Servant of the Manthycore by Michael Ehert
The Servant of the Manthycore

terry weide, January 16, 2008

I started reading the Servant of the Manthycore series on The Sword Review site. I found it to be well researched historical fantasy. The characterizations, atmosphere, and action combine to make one feel they are actually experiencing life in ancient Mesopotamia. Mr. Ehart deserves credit for creating a vivid fantasy that lives and breathes.
