Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

Doc Savage Review

Doc Savage: The Desert Demons
By Kenneth Robeson (Will Murray & Lester Dent)
ISBN #978-1618270016
Price: $24.95
270 Pages
Rating: 5-Stars

After twenty years, Doc Savage and his crew are back to fight evil and punish evildoers in a brand new adventure. Using notes from the late Lester Dent, Will Murray brings a rip-roaring, fast-action, grand slam tale for readers of the Man of Bronze. Something like a red tornado is descending on people, planes, and automobiles, turning them into salt. Doc, while at his Fortress of Solitude sends his aides to California to investigate. Meanwhile, his adventurous cousin, Pat Savage is already there. And to make matters worse, it appears the demon has killed her.

Doc and his aides are in top form, and Murray’s writing style captures Lester Dent’s perfectly. Six more novels have been announced, but Murray says there will probably be more. A special note should be made of the fantastic cover by Joe DeVito. It’s great to see the Man of Bronze, Monk and Ham, Pat, and all the gang back in this new series. Highly recommended.
