    1. Baker uses a real incident as the basis for a screwball story set in Hollywood, featuring Lewis and Joseph Max Reinhardt is staging A Midsummer Night s Dream at the Hollywood Bowl, and things get weird.Library copy


    2. Originally posted at Fantasy Literature fantasyliterature reviI love pretty much everything that Kage Baker wrote her concise to the point style, the ironic way she looks at the world, and her wry subtle sense of humor suits me perfectly, so than any other author I know save Jack Vance I m sure that if I d ever met Ms Baker while she was living that she would have been one of my favorite people on Earth I say this because I feel the need to warn anyone reading this review that I m unlikely to e [...]


    3. Read this very short work in almost no time It features cyborgs Facilitator Joseph and Preserver Lewis in a tale which gives no hint of the drama awaiting them in the later Company novels It was a lightweight farce based on a live Hollywood performance of A Midsummer Night s Dream The details of the story do not impact at all on any other Company novel It was entertaining and breezy My only real complaint is that the two cyborgs seem mortally afraid of being caught by mortals skulking around in [...]


    4. Company men Joseph and Lewis are on assignment in 1940s Hollywood, tasked with finding a legendary lost jewel, the Tavernier Violet No, it wasn t really cut into the Hope Diamond Against a backdrop of a German director attempting to put on a production of A Midsummer s Night s Dream, the two men chase the diamond through an increasingly absurd set of rapidly changing circumstances, in a madcap caper.


    5. Joseph and Lewis, immortal cyborgs from the fantastic Company series, have a gleeful romp together through 1930s Hollywood I would recommend this book if you have already read the full Company series and are jonesing for another fix, but keep your expectations low it s only 114 pages long and there is very little substance.



    6. Short but thoroughly enjoyable It s basically a madcap slapstick caper comedy as two cyborgs from a time travel organization attempt repeatedly to heist a temporal MacGuffin from the site of an LA theater troupe putting on Midsummer Night s Dream I wasn t familiar with the characters or the concept This is apparently part of a series but got into it quickly enough and laughed than a bit It was good enough to send me off looking for in this series Recommended


    7. Joseph and Lewis in Hollywood in 1934 a most unusual Company novella, essentially a tour de farce still, an enjoyable quick read.


    8. Rude Mechanicals is the first book I ve listened to on audio in a very long time It might be the first book I ve ever listened to on audio, come to think of it I read very fast, and generally find the pace of audiobooks infuriating But the narrator is Mary Robinette Kowal, of whom I am generally fond, and when she mentioned in an interview that she d particularly enjoyed narrating it, I checked it out Easy to do, because it s free and online Man, now I want all of the Company stuff in audio form [...]


    9. I love pretty much everything that Kage Baker wrote her concise to the point style, the ironic way she looks at the world, and her wry subtle sense of humor suits me perfectly, so than any other author I know save Jack Vance I m sure that if I d ever met Ms Baker while she was living that she would have been one of my favorite people on Earth I say this because I feel the need to warn anyone reading this review that I m unlikely to ever think any of Kage Baker s stories are bad So do with that [...]


    10. Two weeks ago, I got bitten by a spider and got a bulls eye rash that looked like Lyme disease Telehealth Ontario told me to go to the hospital to check it out, but when I went to KGH, a student of mine had been waiting for stitches for five hours I lent him the book I packed and went off to Hotel Dieu, which is a block from the library I picked up this book, which was perfect for a wait at the hospital It was a fun, frothy farce in the spirit of a Midsummer Night s Dream with my two favorite Ba [...]


    11. This is a cute, funny story, as it was intended Set in the golden age of hollywood, Baker placed two cyborgs in the role of Laurel and Hardy and then the antics begin I laughed and laughed no can be asked from such a story The author didn t try to make pronouncements about the ethics of mechanical people, time travel, or interfering in the lives of humans, she just wrote a slapstick comedy and it worked.


    12. Fascinating novella with characters from the Company universe I loved the film history look at Max Reinhart s Midsummer Night s Dream I ve since rented the DVD only to see some the visuals Baker spent so much time describing ETA Looking at some other reviews of this yeah, I can see how if you weren t already familiar with the Company that this isn t something you d dig Start of with In the Garden of Iden first If you like that, proceed.


    13. This novella was a fun story of Hollywood, A Midsummer Night s Dream and diamond retrieval The cyborgs Lewis and Joseph figure prominently in other Company novels I picked up the audio version for free online subterraneanpress index and the reading by Mary Robinette Kowal I recently enjoyed her book, Shades of Milk and Honey is a little screechy, but not uncharmingly so.


    14. This was not my type of science fiction novel The majority of it was two guys chasing around 1930s Hollywood for a diamond The author chose the wrong character as the protagonist He spends a large percentage of the book driving the car and listening to what the other guy did outside of the car All of the action is related to the reader in a second hand manner.


    15. Rude Mechanicals 2007 by Kage Baker.The overall tone is lighter than Baker s other Company novels, which can be both depressing and bittersweet Baker s immortals do their best to recover buried treasure that s unwittingly unearthed by mortals putting on an outdoor presentation of A Midsummer Night s Dream in 1934 Hollywood July 2008


    16. One of Kage Baker s short novellas, this could stand alone, but it is richer if you have read at least the first couple of books in The Company series so you know the characters jobs and personalities better Still, a fine romp with Preserver Lewis Facilitator Joseph opposite personalities very funny.


    17. I liked the story However, it would be a terrible starting point if you don t know anything about this series I enjoyed the Lewis and Joseph shenanigans Unfortunately, I think that Mary Robinette Kowal was not the best choice of narrator for this work, as others have noted.




    18. Just a little bite of Kage Baker It s so light and fluffy, and not what I was really hoping for, but fun nonetheless If you already like Joseph and Lewis, that is.


    19. Muy entretenida historia sobre la Compa ia, donde no ves lo que pasa, si no que te cuentan lo que ha pasado Todo ello envuelto en una pica representaci n del Sue o de una Noche de Verano
