About this blog

The Fandemonium Stargate novels, which are semi-canon as they are licensed and approved by MGM, are one of the only sources we have left of official new Stargate stories. They are also pretty good overall, and I encourage anyone to pick some up. However, they vary widely in quality from fair to excellent. The goal of this blog is to help people choose which to purchase (particularly if you don't want to read every single one).  Discussion in the comments would also be great!

I will start with the books I have been reading lately, which are some of the most recently published. I will eventually go back to review the older books, but wanted to start with what is fresh in my mind. 

The things I value most in a Stargate novel (and as such will be reflected in my reviews) are interesting storyline and accurate characterization. I hate seeing my friends (characters) do or say something out of character, and there's little point in reading a book that isn't interesting. I give high marks for incorporating new ideas into familiar plots lines (such as finding out more about the Ancients while sticking to canon). I also happen to like to see Jack O'Neill and Sam Carter together, so I will mention it, but it's not a requirement. 

I'm reading Moebius Squared (SG-1 #22) at the moment and looking forward to reviewing it!

Also, visit my etsy shop if you're looking for Stargate gifts or other geeky paraphernalia! I'm donating 10% of shop proceeds to Sanctuary for Kids.
