Doc Sidhe by Aaron Allston

Doc SidheI found this one in the Baen Free Library CD and had it on my Nook. Having never read anything by Mr. Allston before, it seemed like a great opportunity to check him out. I am sorry to report I couldn't finish this one; didn't get more than about 75 pages into it. It's an alternate universe story with the Sidhe living on the other side. Hapless fool falls into the alternate universe by mistake, where bad guys want to kidnap and either make use of or kill his girlfriend or her doppleganger on the other side. Couldn't get into either the story or the characters, and there was nothing new or exciting here to hold my interest. Maybe Allston's later work gets better.
