    1. With its energy, in gunfights and verbal clashes alike, Brass Stars reminded me of Mike Resnick's Santiago. I also thoroughly enjoyed the reversal of gender roles: the hard-boiled chick who denies the needs of her soul (if not her body), hellbent on taking her revenge, the impressionable lad who falls in love and follows timidly, the reformed gunless gunman, turned into a caring fatherly figure. Consider:Tired or not, the way Jackson’s looking at me is making me uncomfortable. “Think I’ll [...]

    2. Quite well told story, as revenge-westerns clad in Sci-fi goes. Short, effective story telling without too much of anything. The characters are simple and quite straightforward.Well, I liked it.

    3. It's got a cybernetic horse and a no-nonsense female gunslinging protagonist. What more could you want? Sci-Fi? Awesome done and done. I highly recommend it.

    4. I really enjoyed this. In the beginning, it starts off with a very perky sort of snarky, sharp kind of narration. I'm expecting your sort of shoot from the hip badass tale of a "strong female character." But it quickly evolves beyond that. It does the difficult job of combining the voice of two genres: the western fable of revenge and a sci fi, almost dystopian setting. It's jarring in the best way - there is a horse, of course, but that horse talks. Yes. it's a robot horse. But it is actually s [...]

    5. Disclaimer: I was provided with an electronic copy of this work, in exchange for an honest review.I promised A.G. this one a month ago, and I'll post it over on , too. (But I'm watchin' ya, , which is why I'm archiving my GR reviews somewhere else as well.)Non-spoiler review: A gritty revenge novella more closely related to classic showdown Westerns than most modern space opera, Brass Stars relies on trope-busting characters and a vivid, relatively low-tech setting to deliver a satisfying story [...]

    6. Tashndelu Sand has arrived on the planet Malachee to kill a man. She’s brought her horse – a mechanical device into which a human’s mind has been grafted - and her revolver. She rides her mechanical horse into town, stops off at the local whorehouse – a girl’s got needs too – and things happen. These things include a fair bit of gunplay, both at the whorehouse and afterwards.Now, lest one think that Brass Stars is entirely a Western in SF clothing, the fact that Synder – Tashndelu [...]

    7. Rough and gritty Space Western with realistic characters looking for revenge. Fast paced and futuristic; the book is narrated by the main character, a badass female named Tashndelu Sand. She starts her adventure on another planet with a mission to find and destroy someone from her past. Science fiction with a twist, I would recommend this book to adults.
