Inheritance (DC Universe)
By Devin Grayson
Published by Warner Books

Review by Logan

DC Universe: Inheritance
by Devin Grayson

I picked this book up because I'd heard there were some gay undertones contained within. While reading the book I came to this realization: Green Arrow is a big gay homosexual. I always thought that the handlebar mustache and that feather in his cap implied a flamboyance of sorts. In this novel, though, the author takes GA's questionable sexuality a bit further. [more]

Abundance: A Novel of Marie Antoinette
By Sena Jeter Naslund
Published William Morrow (HarperCollins)
Publication date: October 2006

Reviewed by Kathryn Ramage

This is a sympathetic view of the Austrian-born French queen, written in the first person, beginning on the day she first arrives in France as an underdeveloped 14-year-old girl to be married to the Dauphin, and ending as she waits for the guillotine blade to descend.

It's also an attempt by the author to dispel some of the myths that have accumulated around Marie Antoinette (for example, she never said anything like "Let them eat cake."), while at the same time acknowledging some of the queen's faults and errors that led to her downfall, and the downfall of the ancien regime: her extravagances, her gambling, her financial support of favored friends, and her propensity to overlook what was going on in France and pay more attention to her games of "pretend," such as her elaborate plans for a rustic play-village within the grounds of Versailles.

The Clouds Above
by Jordan Crane
Published by Fantagraphics

Review by Leigh Anne Wilson

Last week my mother sent me a Harlequin Romance novel. Pardon me, a Harlequin Super Romance novel. What elevated this assembly-line bodice ripper above the lesser bargain bin romance novels Ill never know, because I took it to work the next day, unopened, and tossed it into the blue storage bin the employees use as a library/free book giveaway. It landed with a soft thwack, sliding across dozens of other copies of cheap pulp fiction and layers of last weeks tabloids (same thing.) I dont think my mother read it, either. [more]
