A Tale of Stars and Shadow by Lisa Cassidy – SPFBO #5 Finals Review

A Tale of Stars and Shadow by Lisa Cassidy – SPFBO #5 Finals Review
3.25

*Disclaimer* Writing and reading are subjective arts. What some folks will absolutely love, others will dislike. It is a bit like Marmite in the UK—normal people dislike it intensely, but some weird folks actually enjoy the taste of warm road surface and fresh roadkill on their tongue. To each their own, I suppose. These are […]

Fire Beneath the Skin by Victor Gischler – Series Review

Fire Beneath the Skin by Victor Gischler – Series Review
4.5

Game of Thrones meets Ink Masters. Despite his award-winning literary career, Victor Gischler was an unknown to me—beyond the fact that Amazon always recommended his Ink Mage in its incessant emails. Though the cover grabbed my attention, I never read past the first two paragraphs of the blurb before tossing it onto the slopes of […]

Dark River by Rym Kechacha

Dark River by Rym Kechacha
4.5

It’s hard not to feel that the road is a kind of scar across the land, and the forest is like the new pink tissue forming beneath the old wound, knitting the body back together after being rent apart. Shante thinks of the faint lilac scar across her belly form the C-section giving birth to […]

His Dark Materials – Season One Review

His Dark Materials – Season One Review 

Back in 1999, it was announced that both The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter were becoming film franchises. There was both excitement and apprehension. Excitement because fans were going to get movies based on their favorite fantasy books, and apprehension because—at the time—so many movies based on fantasy or science fiction books had […]

2019’s Best New Genre TV Shows

2019’s Best New Genre TV Shows 

I still remember my childhood, when I wasn’t much interested in TV shows due to their being a pointed lack of sci-fi and fantasy adaptations. But these days not a week goes by when some new genre fiction gets adapted. Original material also keeps springing up left and right. So, it is almost criminal not […]

Luanne G. Smith Interview – The Vine Witch

Luanne G. Smith Interview – The Vine Witch 

The Vine Witch was an Amazon First Read last September and has since garnered over 3,500 reviews. I picked it up not because I was particularly interested in wine or witches, but rather because it was free with Amazon Prime. Going in with low expectations, I was blown away by the creativity and wordsmithing. In […]

Firefly Original Graphic Novel: The Sting by Delilah S. Dawson
4.5

If you don’t know anything about me, one thing you should know is that I am a big damn Firefly fan. I just got a Firefly cookbook for my birthday—which you KNOW I’ll be putting out a review once I try Book’s chicken noodle soup and Jayne’s mudder’s milk—and two action figurines—hello, Wash and Zoe, […]

Spire – Role-playing Game Review Part One: Core Rulebook

Spire – Role-playing Game Review Part One: Core Rulebook 

What is Spire? Created by Rowan, Rook and Decard, it’s a weird, dark fantasy RPG about waging a morally grey war of resistance against an oppressive and demented regime. It’s a game of espionage, horror and impossible choices. It’s a bubbling stew of fantasy, steampunk, pulp and sci-fi. Most importantly, it’s bold, bloody and beautiful. […]
