  • “The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy” Wants You to Find Your Grail!

    First off, apologies for the Monty Python joke. I couldn’t resist. Second, and more importantly, it’s extremely necessary to have works sent out into the world where “fangirl” is not considered a dirty word, and in that respect, The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy: A Handbook for Girl Geeks by Sam Maggs is excellent.

  • Top 5 Favorite Baseball Movies

    Baseball is back, y’all! Monday marked the return of my favorite sport, so to celebrate, I have a list of my five favorite films featuring America’s pastime!
