Santa and Other Criminals Santa and Other Criminals by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
reviewed by Trent Walters
Not in the Christmas spirit yet? You might try this collection wich opens with a pair of mystery shorts, "Rehabilitation" and "Snow Angels." They are essentially psychological explorations of criminals who made their appearance on Christmas. In the first, Matt is a Mall Santa who stops young men from executing a jewelry heist. The police tongue-lash him for acting so boldly, but he had his reasons.

Five for the Winter Holidays Five for the Winter Holidays by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
reviewed by Trent Walters
This collection isn't just about Christmas -- it treats Thanksgiving and New Year's as well -- but several also capture some of that old-time holiday spirit. Itn opens with a Thanksgiving mystery, "Pudgygate," where young men are bragging about their most embarrassing moments. Reuben claims his tale rivals them all. He manages to serve his secret love (Princess Diana), steal a kiss, and capture a criminal -- thanks to a turkey-crazed cat named Pudge.

City of Ruins City of Ruins by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
reviewed by Stephen M. Davis
Boss has arrived at the planet Wyr, in the city of Vaycehn, against her better judgement. Her job is to find and recover stealth technology -- technology that was once used by those who built the Dignity Vessels, but technology of which human beings are no longer master, and that is now just part of a mythical age. And this technology has, until now, only been found on derelict ships, not deep underground.

Extremes Extremes by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
reviewed by Donna McMahon
In this sequel to The Disappeared, Kristine Kathryn Rusch's moon-based detectives are back. Prickly, bull-headed detective Noelle DeRicci is in the doghouse with her police superiors again, so she gets the latest assignment that nobody wants -- a fatal accident at the moon marathon.

The Disappeared The Disappeared by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
reviewed by Donna McMahon
Detectives Miles Flint and Noelle DeRicci don't usually cover the docks, but when a space yacht full of bodies drifts into port on the Moon, they get handed the case. It looks like a Disty vengeance killing -- repulsive, but legal under interstellar law -- and Flint is ready to chalk it up as a rare, distasteful fluke until two other cases involving alien warrants fall into their laps.

The Disappeared The Disappeared by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
reviewed by Lisa DuMond
Instant addiction. You hear about it -- maybe you even laugh it off -- but you never think it could happen to you. Well, you just haven't run into Miles Flint and the other Retrieval Artists looking for The Disappeared. It only takes one innocent hit, just a single novel, and you are hopelessly hooked, impatiently waiting for the next shipment of the good stuff to enter the pipeline.

Stories for an Enchanted Afternoon Stories for an Enchanted Afternoon by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
reviewed by Steven H Silver
These stories do not fall into a single sub-genre of science fiction. The author shows that she is equally comfortable in writing in an historical setting, as in "The Gallery of His Dreams," about Civil War photographer Matthew Brady, or adoption in a futuristic dystopia in the Hugo- and Nebula-nominated "Echea." It is impossible to pigeon-hole her, because no two stories have the same feel, even when they deal with the same issues.

Alien Influences Alien Influences by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
reviewed by Lisa DuMond
If Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids, Bountiful may be an argument for sterilization. Consider the sun-scorched terrain, the constant threat of overexposure, and, of course, the grisly murders of the colonists' children.
