CRASHCOURSE is a story driven by character and action, a great amusement park ride with plenty of twists and "Huh? Ack! Wow!" moments. It would make a terrific film if they can resist messing up the story on the way to the screenplay.

Talk about Crashcourse (Roc S.)


Brightfury
Cyberpunk with a feminine touch (or slap). Anyway it's the story of three strange characters and an equally strange cast of supporting characters. The punk lingo is highly in evidence in the stream of consciousness narative. The action is dark, furious and there's a fairly high body count. A Strong sense of place and character brings you in and the fact that Ms. Baird is not afraid to maim and kill her protagonists is very refreshing. If you like cyberpunk, you'll like Crashcourse.
Gogal
Ms. Baird has a strong first showing in the realm of the cyber. She evokes an atomosphere hovering between the dark future of bladerunner and a fast-action comic book. It reads not so much like William Gibson as Neal Stephanson's "Snow Crash" with no "net" (at least I couldn't find it). The premise blurs the line between reality and movies, and she makes it work due to the technowizardry that exists in her world. What an interesting future!
Alsanadar
This novel is what cyberpunk could be if it were allowed to grow up. Baird doesn't dwell on all the precious details of the tech behind the story; rather, she simply posits it, and credits the reader with enough imagination to do likewise. CRASHCOURSE is a story driven by character and action, a great amusement park ride with plenty of twists and "Huh? Ack! Wow!" moments. It would make a terrific film if they can resist messing up the story on the way to the screenplay. Unfortunately, the book's out of print at the moment (July 2000), but if you can find a used copy, jump at it.

A funny,fast paced romp thru a future you'll really like reading about( as long as Baird's writing it), but you wouldn't really want to live in. While fast and punkish there is a supprisingly tender(3? or is it 4?)way love story winding it's way thru all the mayhem.Baird gives us some fairly complex characters in nicely subtle way. She doesn't get lazy and break thru and tell us all about the characters omnipitently, as too many authors do now.A pretty good read.
Zadora
With the main character being a quirky, witty, intelligent, yet sarcastic and depressed thief who seems to constantly have PMS, one might already be forewarned what is in this book. Especially since it's written in first person.
If you can get around the fact that it's based in the slums of science fiction, in a situation that depresses you from the start and never truly cheers you up afterwards, the plot is kinda good, imaginative, and well-written.
There's also occasional profanity in here, and lots of references to other literary works and such that you may not get. A good read once you get into it, but there's better books out there.

I got this book as a stocking-filler at Christmas, but I love this book! I hope they make a movie or mini-series.
Uaoteowi
....sink your teeth into this one. The main characters (a thief, a sculptor, and a handsome actor) are sucked into a reality show/movie for the money. However, they don't know that the girl they just "saved" is a snuff film actress, and she loves to kill.
Some memorable lines, too. Baird has a crisp, clean style--fiction that gleams like a space-age weapon.
