Wil Wheaton Wil Wheaton's blog:

Normally, I’m pretty good with words. At the moment, I’m not at my best, for reasons I hope are self evident. However, I’m going to do my best to remember someone who gave more to my life than he ever knew.


I never got to know Leonard Nimoy the way my fellow cast members did, so I can’t remember...

Marc  Daniel Marc Daniel's blog:
Like waking from a dream, a perfect, seamless dream
Bewildered by the contrast, you first doubt reality
Holding to lost happiness, incredulous stubbornness
It finally dawns on you, the realization excruciating
What once was, no longer is; what once loved, no longer breaths

LeonardNimoy-WIDEIt's not medieval, but I felt the need to put it here anyway on this, my blog. It was not unexpected because of his poor health, but I was saddened nonetheless with the news of his passing today. And though it is tough to divorce Leonard Nimoy from Star Trek, I do remember him from those early da...

In The Eye of The Beholder   A Novel of The Phantom of the Opera by Sharon E. Cathcart In The Eye of The Storm  A Novel of the Phantom of the Opera by Sharon E. Cathcart

When I was researching these two novels, I learned a lot about how women's mental health issues were treated during the 19th century. My article on the matter was just published in the March 2015 issue of InDTale Magazine, starting on page 47. Enjoy! Read more of this blog post »

C.J. Cherryh C.J. Cherryh's blog:

I know and have known a few of the Star Trek cast, and every ‘inside’ story I’ve heard about him is a good story. Talented, multi-talented, and general nice person. He worked as an actor right down to his final years, and proved he could play all sorts of roles. A life and a career well done.

We all have moments in our lives when we are forced to face something we would rather not, or the unknown. Faith is a light that guides us in the darkness.

Sometime in the summer of 1723 Johann Cant and his wife Anna made love.

They were Pietists; straight laced and deeply religious.

Nine months later, as such things go, their son was born.

What would have happened were it not for that encounter?

What would have happened had they waited a day or a week,... Read more of this blog post »

Nimoy did more than any other actor in advancing the popularity of science fiction in television and movies.
