Okay, I spent a great many hours hunched over my computer when I should have been working, playing the computer game Descent from Parallax Software and Interplay. And yes, it had a much better plot hook than most of its shooter contemporaries. Does that mean I want to read the novelization? Weelll... maybe. As long as it doesn't make my trigger finger itch. "Lunar Outpost MN 0012, the most complex off-world mining operation in the solar system, is in danger of total annihilation. Programmed flying drones have gone berserk, turning on their masters and spreading a hideous plague of devastation and death. An unseen alien force has corrupted the powerful machines as a terrifying first act of war. The moon will fall first. And after that, the Earth. The Post Terran Mining Corporation needs one man to lead a suicide mission into the labyrinthine depths of MN 0012, to take the battle to the white-hot core of the rebellion. That man is Benjamin St. John -- a veteran Maine flyer with nothing left to lose, teamed with a beautiful company flak and his most hated enemy. A stranded computer scientist trapped in the bowels of the moon holds the key to human survival. Her rescue is essential, and St. John is the only man good enough -- and crazy enough -- for the job."

Publication date: March 1, 1999
I can't pick up these books without asking "am I too old to be interested in giant robot havoc?" But face it -- you're never too old for giant robots. The latest in the Twilight of the Clans saga picks up the Jade Falcon storyline where Thurston left off in Freebirth, and also picks up the threads of Prince of Havoc (by Michael Stackpole). "The Clans are in turmoil. Hamstrung by their truce with the hated Inner Sphere and plagued by internal conflict, the once-mighty Clans now race against each other to rebuild their decimated ranks of warriors. One Clan--the Jade Falcons--becomes the strongest of all by violating tradition and building an army of both freeborn humans and genetically engineering trueborns. But their pride is short lived, as the forces of the Inner Sphere rise to do the unimaginable--invade Clan space." From the author of Battletech: I Am Jade Falcon and Battletech: Falcon Guard.

Simon Magus is a prominent figure in the Western occult tradition, mentioned in the Bible and by Justin Martyr as a sorcerous opponent of Peter. Tierney's Simon "comes to life as a Samaritan magician of deep insight and great power, an ex-gladiator whose keen sword and powerful sorcery allow him to survive battles of will and flesh with Roman emperors, Levantine princes, cunning priests, and horrendous powers alien to this world. The seemingly immortal Simon searches for his lovely Helen, her original life surrendered, but whose unknown new incarnation tantalizes his dreams and waking thoughts. Tierney shares Robert E. Howard's gift for mixing the flavor historical antiquity with Hyborian and Cthulhu myth cycles."

Warriors of Virtue|
Novelization of the Spring action movie, starring hordes of kick-boxing rabbits and gentle beasties with nasty, pointy objects. Or so I gather from the Trailer. The marketing copy goes something like this: "In the paradise of Tao, a land unknown to man, live five special kangaroo-like creatures. Each warrior represents one of five virtues--benevolence, righteousness, order, wisdom, loyalty. Together, the Warriors of Virtue embark on a heroic journey, to save their paradise from the evil warlord Komodo." Couldn't they just write their Congressman?

Quality paperback reprint of the lost children's novel by J.R.R. Tolkien, rejected by his publishers over 60 years ago and first published last year. "In 1925, while on vacation with his family on the Yorkshire coast, four-year-old Michael Tolkien lost his favorite toy, a little lead dog he was reluctant to put down even to play on the beach. To console and distract him, his father, J. R. R. Tolkien, improvised a story - the story of Rover, a real dog magically transformed into a toy, who, after many fantastic adventures in search of the wizard who wronged him, at last wins back his doggy life. This charming tale, peopled by a terrible dragon and a wise old whale, by the king of the sea and the Man-in-the-Moon, was a Tolkien family favorite and went through several drafts over the years. Now, more than seventy years after it was written, the story of Rover - or, as the Man-in-the-Moon fondly called him, Roverandom - is published at last, together with five illustrations by the author."
