Cybermage’s Monthly Journal December 2011

Welcome to Cybermage and this monthly retrospective.

Hex by Allen Steel is book of the month. This is more classic science fiction as the people from Coyote uncovers another alien  mystery.

Gordon R. Dickson‘s Way of the Pilgrim gets an honorable mention. It is a different solution to the alien invasion meme featuring a rather nifty marketing method years before Guerrilla marketing.

Happy New Year!
