Mr. Memory and Other Stories of Wonder
Mr. Memory and Other Stories of Wonder -... Mr. Memory and Other Stories of Wonder - Paul Michael Peters Get a blanket, a nice cuppa and make yourself comfortable, because this is the perfect book to read after a long day of work. The stories are short enough to read one (or two, or seven - oops) when you're tired and want some entertainment before bed. They are imaginative and original and I think I'll always be a big fan of Paul Peters' works.

Crescent City Magick: Welcome To New Orleans - Michael L. Peters

Michael L. Peters' "Crescent City Magick: Welcome To New Orleans" is a beautifully illustrated urban fantasy tale that's not only rich in imagery but also in its dimensional characters. Even secondary characters, brief as their appearances might be, have unique voices and memorable designs, reflecting the vividness and colour of the setting, New Orleans. We also get a variety of supernatural presences, including the very easy-going and charming Julia (self-proclaimed witch), who keeps things on an even keel for the distressed but physically capable Clayton, hero-in-waking who's yet to understand that he's more than neck-deep in the irrational, paranormal world. Without giving anything away, we get a hefty amount of danger, good old-fashioned fisticuffs, a nice dose of horror, and an enjoyable 'team' relationship realistically forming, all wrapped up in the end with an air of expectancy, but one that's satisfying.

Peters as an illustrator has a deft and loving hand, whether it's for old or young characters, the muscular Clayton, or the fey-like charm of Julia. Besides his intricate illustrations, his sequential storytelling is a pleasure to take in, as he cuts no corners on panel detail. Imagery influenced by the best in Pre-Raphaelite, Celtic, and Art Nouveau styles--as an admirer of all these schools of art, I feel I've landed a visual treasure in "Crescent City Magick". Peters' storytelling with narrative and dialogue is spot-on as well, smooth and clear so that you're free to enjoy the tale being told. A satisfying addition to my and anyone's visual collection, here's hoping Peters will have the opportunity to do more!

Star Wars Omnibus: X-Wing Rogue Squadron, Volume 3 - Michael A. Stackpole,John Nadeau,Steve Crespo Significantly better than the previous two volumes. The storyline here (and it really is one big, overarching storyline) is much more cohesive and, frankly, better told than any of the previous comic storylines. And it felt a lot more like the Rogue Squadron books, which, let's be honest, was exactly what I was looking for. It feels like the creative team had finally found their way, just in time for the series to end. Sigh. The art was, overall, slightly improved over what came before, though there are still... questionable panels, and the likeness to established characters is vague at best. The dogfights look great, though. And so do the painted covers, which leads to my one real complaint about these omnibus editions: they leave out most of the covers, which is almost a crime when they look this good.
