Era raro que saliera de casa sin kleenex. Prácticamente imposible si había un asomo de catarro. Cuando se echó mano al bolsillo y encontró uno sólo, casi saturado, sintió un desconsuelo completo.

Charity Bishop Charity Bishop's blog:

One of the most adapted literary characters of all time is Count Dracula. Played as a romantic anti-hero, a demented monster, and an empathetic but misguided devil, audiences cannot get enough of Bram Stoker’s creation. It is not difficult to fathom the reason why, for beneath the interesting tal...

Several years ago I happened upon a reply to a post about a child with severe RDEB in a special need parenting forum and one of the commenters stated that they should just “kill him”. That comment got a lot of likes and it got me very, VERY, VERY upset. I was irate. I could not sleep for days. Th...

What of the beautiful fight


The great artists portrayed


And the storytellers

It is


A beautiful fight,

His face turned to the stars.


The fight, the plot,

They all carried on


Without heroes or protagonists

Last Chance is the second book in a young adult apocalypse series. The first was Rains. This is one of those times where you definitely need to read Book 1 before diving into Book 2. Last Chance picks up right where Rains left off. The characters are already established, as is the plot. But don’t... Read more of this blog post »

I would describe it as being at the speculative end of the spectrum of fantastic literature, rather than in the more central sci...
