Star Trek Voyager - Spirit Walk
Book One- Old Wounds
Written by: Christie Golden
Published by: Pocket Books
Review by Kathy LaFollett
Captain Chakotay rejoins his ship Starship Voyager as Commanding Officer. Starfleet Command is skeptical towards his abilities and cynically wait for the new Commanding Officer to go back to his Maquis Ways.
Voyager's first mission with Captain Chakotay as Commander is the transport and repopulation of the Planet Loran II with the remaining displaced colonists. The crew expects a simple mission flight to Loran II, planetary inspection, offloading of colonist's and their belongings with a last check before departure home. [more]

Less Than Heroes
by David Yurkovich
Publisher: Top Shelf Productions
Review by Kathryn Ramage
Superheroes just aren't what they used to be. Faster than a speed bullet? Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound? Uh-uh. Self-obsessed and full of post-modern ironic detachment? Yep. At least, that's the kind of heroes we get in David Yurkovich's comic-book universe.
The situation in Less Than Heroes is explained in an introductory section, complete with slide show and Starbucks rant: in this universe, superheroes are unionized, and most major cities contract with specific superheroes for protection against supervillains and their evil plans. Philadelphia, however, where this story is set, has hired a quartet of non-union heroes -- namely, our heroes, who collectively call themselves Threshold. Since Philly sees very little in the way of supervillainry, the members of Threshold tend to spend more time hanging out around their headquarters and eating cookies (Hydrox cookies are a featured favorite) than acting in the city's defense.
