    " The Bad Guys Stole My Robot" Take three pre-college teen-agers, add genius, mechanical ability, over charged libedos, a bank account with many zeros and the ability to order electronics, exotic metals and polymers and the tools to work them with, and what do you get? A brand new generation of robot that walks the dog, washes the dishes, cooks your meals, beats you in chess and quotes Sun-Tzu while it does While these three kids are discovering who they are, how their libedos work (And never fear they work extremely well), we as readers get to take a trip around this planet, and this universe where meet and make both friends and enemies, while finding out who we are. This author gives you more bang for your buck (you figure out which kind) by accident that most do on purpose. He takes you up, brings you down, around and through some super plot twists and turns. He'll leave you running to order the next issue as soon as it gets out. I give it all four thumbs on both my... More > hands up.< Less

    "Robot Wars 1" Read with a grain of salt and a little more than a wisp of truth. I know Mike personally. I work with him and he is my lab/cubie partner here where NH, Vt. and Ma. meet I have heard and seen this series from it's inception thru too Mike's putting it online for others to enjoy. For those of you who think that New England (Me, NH, Vt, Ma)is the boonies or sticks you are partially right. What most people don't know is that we do have a very many thriving high tech businesses and research facilities located here. Look up DEKA, Dean Kaman, Dartmouth college, IBM, GE, BAE, Timken, Millipore, Markem and others and you will find that a significant amount of high tech things go on here. That all said I felt a little biased when Mike gave me a copy of "RW" and asked me to write a review of it for him. It is hard to be objective when you have heard and seen the many thoughts that went into a stories birth. Mike uses real places in his stories. A great many... More > of those buildings, streets and places that you see are real. I have walked down the streets and seen these places. In keeping with that theme, Mike has created a world that is very close to the real one. Anyone who does not think that industrial espionage, companies stealing from the "little guy" and trying to claim it as there own does not happen and that it does not happen in New england are very sadly mistaken. The storyline may seem a little "easy" with it's character interactions but that is far from the truth in this area of New England. Brattleboro Vt. has just passed (as in the last year) a town law banning public nudity. Yes you could walk thru the downtown buck naked and only get looks or laughs, not arrested. PETA has hosted protests here and a couple of towns in this area have issued, current, arrest warrants for George Bush and Dave Chenney for the war in Iraq. Just a couple of towns north of here is a thriving alternative lifestyle and lifepartner community. That all said Robot Wars 1 is a good starting issue. As the story progresses so will the characters and hopefully your interest.< Less

    "Interesting." This is obviously just the start of a series, and like many, takes some time to get off the ground, but once it gets going it is quite engaging! The characters are both sympathetic and sweet, and the scenes in the town combine the real with the fiction nearly seemlessly. Pretty cool.
