Not Phantom, but pretty close
I am always on the lookout for more Phantom lit.
If you know of anything I'm missing, please drop
me a line and let me know.
In my reviews of each book, where available, you should
bear in mind that I prefer romantic incarnations of the Phantom myth, with
a sympathetic Phantom, not much gore, and (one hopes) quality writing. Where
these qualities are absent, most particularly with the last, I am very much
inclined to pan the book.
My review system is based on a scale of 5 Phantom marquee signs, , 1 being lowest and 5 being highest. It is important to notice that I judge a book against its peers-it would be very unfair to most fan fiction, for example, to rate them against the work of a professional writer. My numeric rankings, then:Dismal. Unspeakable. Read it to either laugh or retch.
A sorry effort with some gleam of light to it. The literary equivalent of Raoul.
Average. Obvious flaws, but equally obvious strong qualities.
Very good. Enjoyable; not perfect, but the good qualities far outweigh the bad.
Terrific. Solid, strong writing (speaking comparably, of course), interesting characterizations--an all-around good read.
