Sky Coyote by Kage Baker

Sky Coyote by Kage Baker

I return to the world of Dr. Zeus and his company this month, although in a very different manner from last time. Sky Coyote, the second book in the series, is very different from The Garden of Iden, not least because it is set on a different continent and in a different century. The protagonist […]

The Last Sacrifice by James A. Moore

The Last Sacrifice by James A. Moore

Grimdark as a genre has become quite predictable now a days. There is some quality writing by quality authors yet it is becoming more and more difficult to find original works. We all love some gore and name calling and graphic sex yet it does get tiring at times as the storyline keeps getting similar. […]

Over The Garden Wall – TV Series Review

Over The Garden Wall – TV Series Review 

“Leave if you wish, but remember: the beast haunts these woods, ever singing its mournful melody…” When I was young, I loved the fantasy section of the library. Not content with just the typical My Teacher Is A Werewolf! or Vampires in Space titles, I’d comb both the kids and adult sections alike for books […]

Urskuul’s Reading Circle: Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

Urskuul’s Reading Circle: Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo 

Well everyone, we have somehow managed to navigate the perils of 2017 to survive all the way into October! I think we all should be congratulated on this sterling effort, since I originally figured this would be a quick money-making opportunity. Everyone would stop coming to Urskuul’s Reading Circle after the first few months and […]

The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden

The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden
4.5

Katherine Arden’s debut novel, The Bear and the Nightingale, was as charming and magical a debut novel as you could hope to find in 2016. Drawing comparisons to Neil Gaiman, Naomi Novik, and Robin Hobb, Arden’s debut became a bestseller, but more importantly, it marked the introduction of an incredible new voice, one that repackaged […]

Urskuul’s Reading Circle: Age of Assassins by R. J. Barker

Urskuul’s Reading Circle: Age of Assassins by R. J. Barker 

Welcome back everyone to Urskuul’s Reading Circle’s latest newsletter! You will be delighted to hear that this month I was able to lead the meeting, following last time around when I was unfortunately absent owing to my enforced attendance of a family holiday. I know, I know, I shouldn’t complain. I got to go on […]

Ancien and the Magic Tablet (Napping Princess) – Anime Movie Review

Ancien and the Magic Tablet (Napping Princess) – Anime Movie Review 

Ah… Now, how exactly do I describe this movie to a newcomer? Imagine Inception, except where the dream involved has a significantly more fairy tale/fantasy bent, mixed with a corporate political thriller and a huge dollop of anime tropes, including giant robots and school girls. That feels like it might be a start to describing […]

IT – 2017 Movie Review

IT – 2017 Movie Review 

This is barely a review. It’s a personal mind vomit of my thoughts after seeing IT for people who have either read the book and or seen the original miniseries, and I want to cover some of the differences and what I think worked and what didn’t. Anything too….spoilery will be near the end in […]

2,000 to 10,000 and 5,000 Words Per Hour – Reviews and Comparison

2,000 to 10,000 and 5,000 Words Per Hour – Reviews and Comparison 

I think it’s safe to say that most writers wish they could write more. We block out time to write before work, during our lunch hours, and before bed. But life often gets in the way: we have jobs, school, family to look after, friends to meet up with, gym sessions, or errands to run. […]

In the Garden of Iden by Kage Baker

In the Garden of Iden by Kage Baker

Technically, my entry for this month (and for the next few months to come) won’t be fantasy. I’ll be delving into science fiction, though you could argue that the Young Wizards series was about as close as you can get to science fiction while still talking about wizards and wizardry. (One of the characters is […]

Martinez is back to continue the thrilling adventure with MJ-12: Shadows—and it’s a belter. The Official Blurb It’s 1949, and the Cold War is heating up across the world.

War for the Planet of the Apes – Movie Review

War for the Planet of the Apes – Movie Review 

War… Huh… Yeah! What it is good for? Absolutely nothing! Say it again y’all! Okay, with that tired joke out of the way, it turns out that war is in fact good for one thing after all. Specifically, for giving us yet another really rather good Planet of the Apes movie. (And a rather belated […]
