    1. I read this ages ago and something made me remember how bad it was. I thought I had blocked it out of my mind, but alas, no. It might hold up better with an older eye, but at the time I read this, at the time it came out, I was alternately bored to death and amazed how badly a crossover of styles could be pulled off.Of course, with the advent of UF, it shows just how much I know. :)

    2. I'm fairly certain I read this back in '88, but couldn't remember the ending to save my backside. Turns out I may have given up back then. This is 2017 though, and I tend to stick it out now. The first half of the book read quickly and Chalker gave us two fleshed out protagonists very quickly. Sam and Brandy are a married, detective duo ready to pack it in for a life in the suburbs/semi-retirement community. On what is literally their last day, their version of the case of the Maltese Falcon com [...]

    3. Sci-fi meets whodunnit in Chalker's book. A good way to pass a commute, although I wouldn't necessarily set aside time to make sure you read it cover to cover.

    4. I tried this book on whim and was pleasantly surprised to enjoy it: an entertaining and somewhat unusual combination of American detective story and science fiction. The sf side of it felt more familiar to me: I read sf, and have read sf of approximately this kind before, but I don't normally read American detective stories.The main characters are likeable enough, although their behaviour is somewhat implausible at times. The plot is frankly too complicated for me to follow, but I got the gist o [...]

    5. An interesting detective story that starts out in the 80s and ends up in deep in science fiction. Took a long time until the premise for the trilogy was revealed, but the detective story was engaging enough to more than compensate.

    6. A fun read. Second time through, but it's been a few years and I still enjoyed the metaphysical playing.

    7. This is a fun start to one of the lightest alternate reality series. Not to heavy, but light romance, adventure and mystery.

    8. I hate that so many of Jack Chalker's books are now out of print. My in-laws got me this from a library book sale and I was never able to find any more of the GOD inc books.
