BOOK REVIEW

UNDEAD AND UNDERMINED by MaryJanice Davidson

"Davidson (Me, Myself, and Why?, 2010, etc.) writes in a jocular voice with teenage attitude (think of a YA novel for mature audiences). Readers are likely to be divided between love 'em and leave 'em by an installment with too much back story for newbies to sink their teeth into."

UNDEAD AND UNSTABLE by MaryJanice Davidson
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: June 5, 2012

"Davidson's latest seems to be less interested in presenting new action than in laying groundwork for further volumes in her series (Undead and Undermined, 2011, etc.). The same mixture as before, but with more Game of Thrones references."

THE INVESTIGATIONS OF AVRAM DAVIDSON by Avram Davidson
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Feb. 5, 1999

Much-honored sf/fantasy writer Davidson (1923—93) was also a master of the mystery short story, argues his friend Richard Lupoff in his warmly appreciative introduction, and adduces in evidence 13 stories ranging in their settings from China to Olde New York, and running from a new twist on the old tale of the vanished bride to a grimly satisfying anecdote of slavery and the law.
