"This is so cool!"
This book is a Step into Reading book, and is a Step 3 book (for grades 2-3). Did you see Star Wars Episode 1? Did you see Darth Maul sent out after the Jedi, and his subsequent attack on Qui-Gon Jinn on Tatooine? Well, this book tells the story from Darth Maul's perspective. It covers his conversation on Coruscant with Darth Sidious, his trip to Tatooine, and his adventures on that planet.

My son was very happy to get this book; he started reading and then proclaimed, "This is so cool!" This book is chocked full of matte illustrations, and containing a short, but well written story. My son and I both highly recommend this book.

Truly a provacative read
Through a series of Essays, the thoughts of Jonathan Edwards on a number of topics, from nature to revival are analysed and expounded.

I don't have a deep philosophical background, but found reading it and learning the unfamilier terms to be rewarding. Edwards was truly a marvelous thinker, and wether you agree or disagree, his thoughts will make you stretch your own. For the most part, the authors are true to Edwards sound Christian Theology, showing just how far ahead in his thinking he was from most contemporary christian authors.

Most of the essyas are top notch, and focus on Edwards, but there are two or three that are self serving and Edwards is used to advance the authors pet cause or philosophy- in an otherwise excellent volume these were quite out of place.

Recommend to anyone who wants to get beyond the "brain candy" you will find in your average Christian Bookstore.

Good information, but same as previous editions
This books offers a good overview of feature writing for both magazines and newspapers. However, when I compared the first edition of this text (1988) with the current 4th edition, I noticed very little difference, other than a huge price increase. Some of the book has been updated, but the sections that are aren't too relevant or useful. Thus, if you have the original edition of this otherwise fine text, don't bother to buy the newer version--it's nearly identical.

Good addition to the Hunter universe
The first of the Creed Books for Hunter: the Reckoning has a good mix of in-character rumors and philosophies and out-of-character rules and goodies (the new traits and edges are especially nice). Excellent insight into the Avengers of the WoD and worth a look by any Hunter STs and players.

No one can resist the INCUBI
This is another hard to find title from Edward Lee. It's a shame it isn't in-print anymore. I am a big fan of this writer and INCUBI ranks up there with his best (see my review of COVEN for more).
Lee isn't for the weak of heart (and stomach) though. His horror is of the most extreme kind and his sex is almost always nasty and/or perverted-- kind of like Richard Laymon, another favorite of mine.

INCUBI is about a pair of ex-lovers, a cop and a female artist, both of whom (in different ways) get involved with -- and become the target of -- a pair of male sexdemons who prey on the lusts of women. If you don't mind reading about people gettting sliced up in the most brutal ways and women see raped by grotesque phallusses this is your kind of book. Lee's ending isn't a happy one though and INCUBI has an epilogue which can be called downright weird.
ONLY READ THIS WHEN YOU'RE SURE YOU CAN HANDLE IT (for example with all the lights on)!

I heard Lee is now writing SF novels. I hope he'll return to his older form with more work like this. INCUBI is extreme horror/ gore at it's peak, written in a time when every horror novel didn't have to be targeted at a Young-Adult audience and/ or had te be part of a series like Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

The Confederacy survives having "Granny Lee" in charge
"Lee Takes Command" is the volume in the Time-Life Civil War Series that reminds us the Army of Northern Virginia was not overly impressed with its new leader at the beginning of his legendary tenure. Winfield Scott might have convinced Abraham Lincoln to offer Robert E. Lee command of the Federal army, but the average Confederate soldier was not too keen about "Granny" Lee and his penchant for digging trenches in defense of Richmond in June of 1862. This volume begins with a photo essay on "The Making of a General," that covers the highlights of Lee's family and military career up to the moment he was ushered onto the stage of American history.

Lee took command of the Confederate army defending Richmond when General Joseph E. Johnston was wounded at the Battle of Seven Pines. Several choice quotes regarding Lee's shortcomings as a military commander, include a patently ironic one from George B. McClellan, set the stage for the creation of a legend. The volume is divided into five chapters: (1) Mechanicsville to Gaines's Mill details how Lee forced the Federals to withdrawn across the Chickahominy River; (2) Flight to the James describes covers the battle of Malvern Hill, which saw McClellan withdraw his army to Harrison's Landing, thereby ending the Peninsula Campaign; (3) Taking the War North covers Stonewall Jackson's battle with Nathaniel Banks at Cedar Run; (4) Jackson's Bold Sweep finds John Pope now in charge of the Army of the Potomac and the two armies moving around northern Virginia until (5) Another Bull Run, which I have always tended to think of as a major battle, but which is reduced to being covered in a single chapter.

"Lee Takes Command" covers a lot of ground, both in terms of time and territory. As a result, this particular volume focuses more on the bigger picture than the details, as compared to other books in the series. Lee himself is not always at the forefront of the action, but certainly his surrogates, namely Jackson and Stuart, carry out their military efforts in his spirit. The book is illustated with historic photographs, etchings, drawings, paintings and such, which is one of the hallmarks of this series. For every illustration you recognize chances are you will find two or more than you do not. As with most episodes of the Civil War, you will be struck as much by the ineptitude of the Northern commanders as you will be by Lee's brilliance.

Well Worth It's Price!
If you can handle the small print, you'll find 3 whole books (not just 3 stories) in this gem. I read Andrea Edwards' "The Magic of Christmas" first. The main characters both have interesting facets to their lives they aren't willing to share with each other which keep your interest past the blurry-eye stage, but I thought it would have benefited from a stronger ending. Next I read "The Pendragon Virus" by Cait London and only wished I'd find a workaholic, successful man who could be wooed by the idea of instant parenthood! This story was an enjoyable read with some steamy sections. My favorite, though, is the first story "An Officer and a Gentleman" by Rachel Lee. Always a pushover for a handsome man in a uniform who dresses like a cowboy in his free time. This was an intriguing story about a woman in the military finding love for the first time and trying to successfully meld her career and personal life. I enjoyed the complexities of the characters and was glued to all 250 pages! Definitely worth the eye strain!

While Wilson and Savory's "That's Some Pig" is good, the real reason I bought this book was for Edward Lee and John Pelan's "Charlie's Web". No Charlotte's Web here, this story would be at home in any of Jeff Gelb's Hot Blood series books. You'll never look at pigs and spiders the same way again. Trust me.
