  • Vampire Academy: It’s Not What You Think

    We’re not supposed to judge books by their covers, but we do (or at least I do), especially when there are dozens of novels that all appear to be exactly the same. There have been A LOT of paranormal themed YA novels in the last ten years, and while I am admittedly a massive fan […]


  • Big Bang Press and Why You Should be Excited

    I can’t count the amount of times that I have said to myself that I would pay good money to read a novel that is half as good as some of the fan fiction I read. Well now, thanks to a bunch of wonderfully motivated fans, I can. Big Bang Press is, according to their […]


  • Book Review: The Maze Runner

    I admit from the start with this one my whole reason for reading The Maze Runner was that I am a Teen Wolf and Dylan O’Brien fan. When I heard he was starring in the movie based on The Maze Runner I was tremendously excited. As an admitted bookworm with a penchant for dystopian fiction, […]


  • Sins, Spells, and Sarcasm: Why You Should Read ‘Sandman Slim’

    The Sandman Slim series by Richard Kadrey tells the story of a man who comes back from Hell to seek revenge on those who sent him there. I know what you’re thinking:  Judeo-Christian mythological stories are a dime a dozen.  Ever since John Milton wrote his Biblical fanfiction, Paradise Lost, everyone has wanted to put […]


  • Zombie Media: the Other Green Meat

    Zombie movies: love them or hate them, they seem to be everywhere these days.  I’m sure you’ve thought of at least one by the time this sentence ends.  Maybe you have a favorite, maybe you hate the thought of them (if that’s you, turn around and run), but you can’t get away from them.  But […]

This will contain spoilers for what is in the remaining chapters of A Storm of Swords, but it won’t contain anything […]


  • And What of Dorne? Musings About House Martell

    This post is going to be mostly spoiler free. Any spoilers will simply be character names, personality traits, and things like House motto and sigil. There will be no spoilers in regards to plot elements, character deaths, or marriages. The “show only” crowd should be able to read this article relatively safely. We’ve got a […]


  • Neil Gaiman Live at the Crystal Ballroom

    Neil Gaiman’s voice sounds like his writing. I suppose that’s not terribly surprising. Of course the man who puts words together with uncompromising directness, and yet imbues so many phrases with little conspiratorial smirks, would also speak plainly and with a dry sense of humor. But there is also something about the quality of his […]



  • Sorting the Ser Whatsits of Whocares (part 2)

    Season three has introduced an insane amount of new characters that may be leaving some fans a bit overwhelmed. This cast is huge and sometimes it’s easy to forget people.  Also many characters who start out small end up becoming important later on, which complicates having an incredibly large cast even further.  I mean who […]
