Allmänna fakta

Sylva, North Carolina, USA



I chose this book after reading other books by Jennifer Jaynes. I also have seen the movie Boggy Creek. The book was what I expected. I was entertained by it. I did like it better than the movie but I tend to lean that way. I would recommend it to those who enjoy teens going into the woods and bad things happen. It is a short, quick read.

A good short story about the start of a zombie apocalypse. Nothing exceptional, but it kept my interest. It actually felt more like the first chapter or two of a longer work.

Here are some good things:
⚫️ This book is full of action and humor.
⚫️ Kaiju are cool. So are ragtag space crews.

Here are some not so good things, and some that are downright bad:
⚫️ The Cap'n Tightpants avatar is overdone and not at all original. Many (most) of the characters are stock characters.
⚫️ As a matter of fact, quite a bit of this story is derivative.
⚫️ This book has two authors listed. Is that correct? If it is, that's a bad idea when only one of them is up for an award.
⚫️ Typos. So many typos. Careless ones, too.

This isn't award winning stuff. It is fun, though, and would have gotten a 3 star rating had it not contained so many errors and typos. I think I'm going to check out Cordova & Brown's Kaiju series.

Jason Cordova is a nominee for the 2015 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer.

The shady captain of a merchant starship accepts a job from a secretive government agency, retrieving the database of a spy ship that crashed on Gorgon IV, a.k.a. Murder World. It's apparently not the first time Vincente Huerta has accepted dubious jobs from dubious clients or from the military before, and he'd probably be better off financially if he didn't drink a good deal of the profits. He also has at least one ex-wife he owes a substantial amount of money to. It's his saving grace that he has Jasmine, his pilot and a thoroughly kickass woman with no apparent reason to put up with him. She could surely get a better job!

After an encounter with the ex-wife to hire mercenaries, and another stop to buy fuel from a stoner gang called the Wild Ones (no, really, their security is so good their guy on watch is smoking a reefer on duty, but it's okay because they are all badass fighters like Jasmine), the Fancy zips off to Gorgon IV.

It's not at all clear that they knew before they arrived why Gorgon IV is so dangerous it has the nickname Murder World. They seem completely surprised by the conditions there.

At no point does Huerta make an intelligent decision. If he listened to Jasmine more often, he'd make less stupid decisions. Unfortunately, Jasmine has no objection to both of them leaving the ship, leaving the mercenaries they don't know and have no reason to trust unsupervised on the ship, while they go negotiate with the Wild Ones. When Kirk took his entire command staff down to an unknown or otherwise risky world, at least he was leaving competent and loyal Starfleet officers behind on the Enterprise.

And the quality of Huerta's decision-making doesn't get better.

I wish this were being played for laughs. I don't see any evidence of that.

The characters are cardboard. The prose and the plot are clunky. I wasn't overly impressed by Cordova's other sample in the Hugo Voters packet, the short "Hill 142," as I thought its inventions were arbitrary and not supported in the story, but it's professional level work. This isn't.

Not recommended.
