Usually when I write reviews, I try to be as detailed as possible, examining the story with a critic’s eye. The author deserves it; the readers deserve it. But I have to be honest here – there really isn’t a whole lot I can write that the title doesn’t already convey. Selling Steve Jobs’ Liver is indeed a story about a group of tech entrepreneurs led by the, at times, unscrupulous Nate Pennington, who are trying to sell DNA samples of Steve Jobs’s liver as a marketing gimmick for the latest and greatest must-have tech device. Carry the dearly departed on your person and connect with them for all eternity via a very sophisticated Artificial Intelligence app.

“The Felix Chronicles: Freshmen” by R.T. Lowe is an urban fantasy novel that brings magic and the occult to a seemingly typical college in the Pacific Northwest. But it is evident from the outset that nothing about this setting or the characters involved is typical.

“Rule-Set: A Novel of a Quantum Future” by Merrill R. (Rick) Chapman is a science fiction novel that explores future technology relating to immersive gaming and relationships, artificial intelligence, quantum computing, and hacktivism. On the surface, this sounds like quite a few topics to juggle. However, the bulk of this novel primarily deals with the conflict between the main character, Clarence Hamilcar, and a questionably sentient Japanese AI character named Hanabusa Narihisa.

Title: The Book of Magic Numbers

Author: Sarah Sophia Boros

Genre: Children’s

Let me just get this out of the way right now – I don’t review children’s books. So, to make an exception and deviate so wildly from my normal review genres must mean I had a very good reason. And I do. Sarah Boros’s debut children’s book, The Book of Magic Numbers, is an absolute delight. Read more
