Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

The Log of the Flying Fish by Harry Colllingwood

This story had the feel of old time SciFi.  The Victorian aspect gave it the H.G. Wells feeling.   The Flying Fish is a dirigible made of a mysterious metal alloy and powered by an equally mysterious element.  As much of the older SciFi, there is no attempt to make either of those facts’ probable.   The ship is built and staffed by four English gentlemen and their two man servants.  The story is their trips abroad.

The story suffers somewhat by the overly wordy descriptions and the
sattitudes and language of the supposed Victorian time period.  I cringed as they slaughtered animals for sport but that was normal for the time period depicted.

It was an interesting story but not gripping.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
