leave a comment »

Folks, tonight I reviewed four books for Amazon.com and two for Shiny Book Review — THE PREDATOR STATE (as previously posted and this one, DEATH OF A MUSKETEER.  Sarah d’Almeida did an exemplary job in adding this book to the Alexandre Dumas lore about the Musketeers, adding richness and complexity without slowing down the headlong plotline any.

Go read it!

Just reviewed “The Predator State” at SBR

with 2 comments

Folks, before I forget, here’s the link to my review tonight for James K. Galbraith’s THE PREDATOR STATE, which is up at Shiny Book Review right now:

I wanted to point out that in addition to the examples used in my review, I believe current Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker fits Galbraith’s definition of what a predatory person can do with regards to government, and that he should perhaps be evaluated in that light as well.

Enjoy!
