It’s time again for the yearly update to my reader’s picks page. This year I have added five stories:
- Paladin by 8-Bit
- The Rise of the Cyber Queen by Queen Cordelia
- Sleepers by J. Darksong
- The Jokers’ Club by Tropos
- Agent With Immunity by Frederick
Prequel by 8 Bit-This is yet another excellent story from 8 Bit. A girl falls under the thrall of a hyperactive, somewhat maladjusted in a very cool way, lesbian who plays games with her and uses her to begin to control others. As usual, this is well written with superb dialouge especially. As a writer myself, I find dialouge hard to write and 8 Bit always does a great job with it.
Just wanted to announce that Simon has updated my reader’s picks page. New stories include:
Viva La Resistance
Mirrored In Your Eyes
Cotton & Cotton, Auto by 8 Bit-Both of these stories take place in the same universe. What works the best in this series is the plot: with all its twists and turns 8-Bit creates a vivid word that keeps me wanting to read more and more. The characters are wonderful as well, the protagonists, with their obvious influence from a certain television lesbian couple of a few years past, are very likeable and given very drawn out backgrounds and lives. The various morality issues brought up are engaging and definitely food for thought. I hope there is more to this series eventually.
