Bimbos and Zombies

It’s the title of a sci fi fandom mystery duality. It certainly was not the light read I was expecting when I bought it off the library sale bookshelf nor when I pulled it off my “I need to read these” shelf today.

I like the main characters, an engineer who accidentally wrote a sci fi novel, and his girlfriend-we-won’t-get-married-till-we-both-get-tenure/if-we-both-get-tenure, a PhD from the English department.

The setting was fun, if a little too… sci fi fannish. The first was at a con and the author introduced many varied and unnecessary characters, just so that you would get a feel for the place. Since I’ve gone to cons, I didn’t need that, but it was still interesting.

The first one I thought was a little slow. But it got going and was interesting. Great character development.

But the second one was depressing to me. If she had ended it with the police agreeing to say they were heart attacks, I would have been okay with it. It wouldn’t have been happy, but okay. But, no, she has to have an informed character decide to sell a tell-all book. And the whole gang rape thing, even if that’s not what it was, was a little too much information I would rather have not existed.

But it was an interesting book.

One thought on “Bimbos and Zombies

  1. I like the new look! I have been studying my CSS and html. Soon, I hope to redo mine and break from the standard templates.

    Thanks for calling. It was great to hear from you.
