Review: American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Amer­i­can Gods by Neil Gaiman

My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars I’m try­ing to remem­ber whether or not I’ve read any of Gaiman’s oth­er nov­els before, and I’m fair­ly cer­tain that I haven’t. I read Good Omens, but that was co-writ­ten with Ter­ry Pratch­ett, and the col­lab­o­ra­tion was genius. I know that the entire […]

Reviews: Various Short Stories

I just fin­ished read­ing a bunch of dif­fer­ent short sto­ries that have been lurk­ing in var­i­ous pro­grams on my iTouch. While they are reviewed in sep­a­rate entries on GoodReads, I’m going to try to put the reviews in one blog post.

Review: Walking Dead by C.E. Murphy

Walk­ing Dead by C.E. Mur­phy

My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars I’ve enjoyed the oth­er Walk­er Papers nov­els, but Walk­ing Dead def­i­nite­ly showed more depth and matu­ri­ty than the ear­li­er vol­umes. Both the author and her lead char­ac­ter have grown very nice­ly. Joanne is far from per­fect, but she doesn’t make the same mis­takes […]

Capucine’s Story!

This lit­tle girl has to be one of the cutest lit­tle dar­lings any­where! Her sto­ry is high­ly enter­tain­ing 🙂 Once upon a time… from Capucha on Vimeo.

Review: The Iron Hunt by Marjorie M. Liu

The Iron Hunt by Mar­jorie M. Liu

My review

rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars­The Iron Hunt is a beau­ti­ful­ly writ­ten book with some inter­est­ing twists on estab­lished fan­ta­sy memes. To some extent, I felt that I’d come in to the world on book 2 or 3, but as far as I know […]

Review: Hotter Than Hell

Hot­ter Than Hell, the lat­est “Hell” anthol­o­gy is edit­ed and has an intro­duc­tion by Kim Har­ri­son. I don’t know if the sex­i­er trend is her choice, a response to mar­ket demands, or some­thing else again.

The anthol­o­gy is thick­er than most, with longer pieces–short novellas?–by each of the 13 authors. I read a copy […]

R.I.P. Robert Asprin

I only encoun­tered him per­son­al­ly once, on a pan­el the first time I attend­ed a con (Drag­on Con, 1988 or so?). I thought he was an arro­gant jerk. I’ve heard from oth­ers that he could be quite nice, so maybe it was some kind of schtick. I did enjoy all the Thieves World books, despite […]

TotD: Robin Laws on Roleplaying Games

I hadn’t ever thought of it this way, but I think the man is on to some­thing.

“One of my pet the­o­ries about the pop­u­lar­i­ty of role­play­ing games goes like this. Role­play­ing is fan­ta­sy shop­ping for guys. That is, men would, as a group, be more inter­est­ed in shop­ping if a) it meant nev­er […]

MomoCon?

Any­body going to Momo­Con here in Atlanta? I’d nev­er heard of it before today. It’s free, and may be in its sec­ond year (I’m not sure). It seems quite small, which could be nice. It’s local, which is a big plus for us. I’m unclear as to whether there’s any gam­ing hap­pen­ing or not, and […]
