    One thought on “The Further Adventures of Batman”

    1. This collection of 14 stories will have something for every kind of Batman fan, from those who prefer them dark and gothic to those who enjoyed the cheesy comics and TV series of the 60s and 70s 1 Death of the Dreammaster by Robert Sheckley Bruce Wayne starts seeing his dead enemies alive and must uncover if they re real or not apart form a very shocking and gruesome first scene, this story is mostly OK, well written, but nothing exceptional.2 Bats by Henry Slesar after Robin s death, Batman app [...]

    2. I read this when I was younger and I remember a few of the stories making an impression on me I recently bought a used copy to check it out again and it s been fun revisiting the material The one that always stood out to me the most was the one written in screenplay form, which was an interesting choice and the first time I was exposed to that format of writing.

    3. I first read this little chappy in 89 I would have been just turning seventeen, and an avid Batfan, especially post Dark Knight Miller Moore period.I remember being vastly unimpressed with the book back then, but for two of the tales I also remember a little brouhaha over the graphic content of the first tale, raising a mention in English tabloids.Cut to now, twenty eight years later, and a re reading, and I find that my feelings haven t changed The majority of the book is shite, and the two sto [...]

    4. I picked this up for Isaac Asimov s story Northwestward and it unfortunately was completely stupid It references Batman but not really in a meaningful way And as a mystery story goes, it had the least interesting twist, after a really boring bunch of exposition and dialogue Other stories in here are probably better, but I doubt I ll get around to reading them If I do, I may change my review.

    5. I ve always loved themed anthologies, particularly ones where recognize authors and novelists all tackle a topic or setting they wouldn t normally do Though not all the stories in this anthology land partially because Batman has been reimagined so many times that he can be almost anything to anyone , many of them are quite effective, particularly a surrealist supernatural horror installment in which Batman is pitted against an eldritch abomination that inspired Jack the Ripper.

    6. This is an anthology by the king of genre anthologies, Martin H Greenberg, as such some of the stories are quite good, others are so so, and one was really pointless This collection of fourteen stories has a disappointing line up of authors.I also found this book in a box of old paperbacks of mine and it dates from 1989, and man does it show Computers built with vacuum tubes and operated with punch cards It s unfamthomable And Batman s tech should be slightly futuristic not hopelessly out of dat [...]

    7. This book caught my eye 14 authors from traditional publishing backgrounds tackle the subject of The Batman, including ones I was already familiar with Max Allan Collins, Stuart Kaminsky, and Isaac Asimov Unfortunately, as I read through the book, I found it to be like most anthologies some stories are excellent and really appeal to me, while others make me feel like my time would have been productively spent watching butterflies flutter in a meadow.Let s look at Bats, by Henry Slesar, as an ex [...]

    8. Some of the stories in this collection are actually a pretty good read, but most of them are fairly sub par.Still, the collection provides an amusing enough read, if the awkward prose for some stories can be overlooked A couple of the stories feel out of place, such as Idol or Northwestward which don t help the book any.For the most part, characterization is pretty good from most of the authors Dick Grayson reads particularly reminiscent of his Animated Series self, despite these stories having [...]

    9. Enjoyable, but overall mostly forgettable I m a big Batman fan so I enjoyed all of the stories in this collection certainly some than others There seem to be a concentrated effort on the writers to shy away from the major villains The Joker makes a few appearances one as a side character, another as the main villain Some readers may find this as a positive I found that the stories I enjoyed the most were the small, quirky ones Neutral Ground, The Batman Memos, Northwestward, and Idol were my fa [...]

    10. It was oh kay Some of the stories were really good, especially the ones with Robin A lot of the writers seem unfamiliar with the mythos, and to a certain extent if you are familiar with the mythos than they are, you might find some of the blunt commentary annoying he s not a superhero He s super prepared, except when he s surprised His parents are dead Etcetera But generally, it s probably worth it I didn t like Isaac Asimov s story when I first read it Now that I ve thought about it, I like i [...]

    11. I dug this old collection out with nostalgia coursing through my soul Some things are better left in childhood.This is a miserable collection of stories Most are just prose versions of an average Batman comic circa 1972, cheesy and shallow and owing as much to the campy tv show as anything else The few stories that try to do something different don t really work either, like Isaac Asimov s Northwestward, an interesting take on a real life Bruce Wayne that ends on a confusing and indifferent note [...]

    12. I love Batman I love science fiction I really thought this would be a great read I mean, How can you go wrong with some of the best science fiction writers writing short stories about this awesome character Obviously some of these writers should stick with what they know best and leave comic characters to the experts Not that it was a bad book Just had some dull stories that did nothing for the character Surprisingly, the best shorts stories actually centered around Robin I can t say that I woul [...]

    13. I ve been looking for this book forever I have only a vague memory of the stories contained within I must have purchased this sometime around when it came out, making me ten or eleven I think I purchased it at a pharmacy I remember an extremely dark and gruesome story with the Joker The reading was a little difficult for me at that time Actually, I remember something about his body, the Joker s, being crushed in gears and cogs Now that I ve found the book s proper title, I will read it again, an [...]

    14. An instantly forgettable bunch of stories which simply fail to honour the character Some start off promisingly but descend into dreck, others are non starters The best story here, The Batman Memos is a novel approach to telling a Batman story, and while it s compelling throughout even this entry fails to stick the landing.As an Asimov fan, I was disappointed that his contribution is cribbed from an old pulp crime anthology and really only a Batman story by a technicality I suspect his Northwestw [...]

    15. Fourteen fun stories portraying the adventures of the Dark Knight from the forties to the late eighties Each author takes a different spin on Batman from the campy Adam West Batman to a brooding Batman of the eighties after the second Robin s death I liked each story and I highly suggest this collection to any Batman fan.

    16. I read this as a kid, and absolutely loved it I was at a flee market right after college and came across the book again and snapped it right up I enjoyed the stories just as much the second time I love the dark and brutal Batman world that is portrayed in a lot of the stories The story with Spring Heeled Jack is still one of my favorite short stories as well

    17. This is a collection of short stories about Batman, each by a different author, with a different spin It s an excellent volume, filled with a great variety of stories that you can read in one sitting each Highly recommended if you re at all interested in Batman, or want to be interested in Batman.

    18. I remember this book being really good, and very dark in some spots The list of authors included is pretty eclectic, including a Batman story penned by the most prolific non fiction science author of all time, Isaac Asimov Talk about two of my favorite things rolled into one.

    19. Wildly uneven, The good stories are very good, the rest pretty blah The one set in 30 s Hollywood was very clever.Most of the writers seemed to have trouble with translating Batman from comics to prose.

    20. It s a nice mixture of story telling styles and eras of Batman One of my favorites in the group is the first story in the book as it thinks through all the work Bruce Wayne must go through to keep his separate identities apart.

    21. With such a mix of stories there s definitely going to be ones that appeal to some but not others More than half I liked though and it was worth getting it second hand

    22. This is a fantastic collection of short stories Your Batman library isn t complete if you don t have a copy Neutral Ground was my favorite.

    23. Fun short stories about Batman that remind me of the campy 60 s television show An enjoyable read for Batman fans of all ages.

    24. Read this shortly after it hit the shelfs and loved the story s the Origin of the batmobile was the story that got me.

    25. A random assortment of short stories about Batman As with most short story compilations with various authors involved, it is hit and miss Some were well told while others had me bored.
