    Something Besides The Company

    I just finished reading The House Of The Stag. This is the second of the three fantasy novels she wrote. I had read The Anvil Of The World a while back and felt it was time to move further into this series. I wasn't entirely prepared for how much I would like this one. My review on Goodreads...

    Kage Baker - The Graveyard Game

    Original review by Elaine Frei: What to do with an immortal cyborg who can't or won't follow the rules?

    Kage Baker - In The Garden of Iden

    Original review by Elaine Frei: In The Garden of Iden, by Kage Baker, does a good job of masquerading as a romance novel set in the England of Bloody Mary Tudor. The reader who picks it up expecting that it is only that is in for quite a surprise. Yes, it takes place, for the most part, in...

    Mendoza In Hollywood?

    I'm not sure if anyone can answer my question since I am in the US and this is a UK forum, but does anyone know why "Mendoza in Hollywood" is such a hard to find book in the states? The cheapest copy I could find is about $25.00 for a used copy, when all the other books in the series are...

    "The Life of the World to Come"

    No, I haven't gotten my grubby little hands on it yet...but the library finally allowed me to request it. So, soon, hopefully. I did take a look at it in the bookstore shortly before Christmas, read the first few pages, and I think it's going to be a good one. There's one person in line...

    Which is your favorite?

    This is a very simple poll: Which of Kage Baker's novels of The Company is your favorite, and why? I'll start. I like all of them, but I have to say that "Mendoza in Hollywood" is my favorite. There are several reasons. One is a very silly reason: Baker has set the scene for most of the action...

    The world of the Company

    I am fascinated by the world Kage Baker has created in her novels of the Company. I think it is richly textured and wonderfully realized. I'm especially intrigued by how she treats our future. I think that basically what she did was postulate a future in which political correctness has taken...

    Kage Baker

    I read an interview of hers in Locus this summer so I just ordered the first two books of her Company series. Has anyone read her books? If so, what did you think?
