HARK! An 87th Precinct Mystery
By Ed McBain
Published by Pocket Star Books, 2004.

Review by Ida Vega-Landow

Okay, mystery fans, I've got good news and bad news. The good news is Ed McBain has written yet another book about the 87th Precinct. The bad news is Ed McBain died of cancer on July 7th, 2005 at the age of 78. So the question is, where did this new 87th Precinct novel come from? And the answer is: the book was written and released in 2004, dummy! A year before McBain's death! So this is obviously a re-release of a book you haven't read before! Duh!

The point is that you 87th Precinct devotees shouldn't expect any more new releases from Ed McBain in the coming year, unless he left a few "canned" novels on tape or notes for new books, to be transcribed, written into book form and released at regular intervals. (Which seems to be the case with a certain female fantasy writer of whom I'm quite fond; why else would she have so many recent releases with the same collaborator? But I digress...) [more]

Not only in Yuichi the most mysterious, sought-after guy at school, he's got an excellent shot at getting into any prestigious University...and no one knows this better than his secret love, Wataru. But instead of a vacation break spent celebrating beneath the fragrant sway of summer blossoms, both boys must surrender to Yuichi's grueling study schedule. How can they possibly sweeten the deal? A bet that promises to take their young relationship to the next level is in the works, but Wataru complicates matters when the very ring that symbolizes their precious bond goes missing. Prying girls and wisecracking best friends only fuel the flames of gossip, and soon the small white lies that were only meant to protect the heart of Wataru's beloved become poison arrows. With the test and their relationship on the line, can the boys hold on long enough to survive the sticky meltdown of their longest summer. [more]

The Freebooters
by Barry Windsor-Smith
Fantagraphics Books

review by Tom Good

Barry Windsor-Smith, who worked on the Conan comic in the 1970s, later created a tale of another legendary warrior named Axus. Axus, who once saved the city of Shahariza from the demon Ammon-Gra, is past his prime -- a washed-up hero who has put on some weight and spends his time drinking at the Peacock tavern. A young man named Aran arrives in town to warn of a terrible new danger, but is Axus up to the task of saving the world again? [more]
