The Shadow of The Lion
by Mercedes Lackey, Eric Flint and Dave Freer
Published by Baen Books, 2002
Review by Ida Vega-Landow
This review contains plot and character information that might be considered spoilers; proceed at your own risk.
This hefty paperback (913 pages!) is the work of three well known sci-fi/fantasy authors, Mercedes Lackey of the Heralds of Valdemar series, Eric Flint of the Joe's World Series, and Dave Freer, author of "Wizard of Karres". I must say it's not bad for a book that was written by committee. In it, we go back in time to the days of the Holy Roman Empire, from April 1537 to September 1538, in the city of Venice, where a magical conspiracy is afoot. [more]

Dr. Slump, Vol. 1
by Akira Toriyama
Published by: VIZ
Review by Tom Good
Before creating the hit series Dragon Ball, Akira Toriyama became well known for the manga called Dr. Slump. This story takes place in Penguin Village, a location also featured in Dragon Ball. The doctor, whose real name is Dr. Noriyaki Senbei (a pun on the name of a type of rice cracker), begins the story by inventing a robot girl called Arale. She has superhuman strength, but despite being a robot she has to wear glasses, because Dr. Slump did not do a very good job with her eyes. Arale is convincing enough that the rest of Penguin Village thinks she is a real girl, but her inexperience with the human world, combined with Dr. Slump's wacky inventions, lead the pair into a variety of slapstick adventures.
