Adventure Week #4: Tarzan of the Apes

Over at my crime fiction blog, I've reviewed the first Tarzan novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Take a look if you'd like.

Here's a question specifically for SF fans: has anyone read Philip Jose Farmer's Tarzan Alive? If so, what did you think? Should I start hunting down this title or not bother?

Adventure Week #2: Treasure Island Book Review

Over at my crime fiction blog, I reviewed Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. It's Part 2 of Adventure Week, my reviews of some classic adventure tales I read for the first time this year. Yeah, it's not exactly science fiction and that's why I'm posting it on my crime fiction blog. Check it out. I consider it my favorite classic novel of the year. Not sure what can top it.

Up next: King Solomon's Mines (tomorrow).

Book Review: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne

Over at my crime fiction blog, I've started Adventure Week. It's my review of four classic adventure novels that most people read when their a kid...and I waited until I was a forty-year-old kid. First up is Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. It's a SF novel--and the only true one on the list--and probably should have posted it here. However, I wanted to keep all the reviews together.

So, if you have a mind, head on over to my crime fiction blog and take a read. Up tomorrow is Treasure Island, King Solomon's Mines is unearthed on Thursday, and Friday is the mystery book. You'll have to tune in on Friday to see what I've got planned for Friday's Forgotten Books.
