Sharknado 3 - Oh Hell No!

Just finished watching "Sharknado 3 - Oh Hell No!" released by The Asylum."
The "Sharknado" movies are just gold old fashioned schlocky, nonsensical fun that are way, way over the top, with a surprisingly well thought out story line that extends throughout the remainder of the movie franchise. After Read more of this blog post »

Gideon the Ninth (The Locked Tomb, #1) Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir

“Gideon the Ninth” is a powerful work of speculative fiction. I knew I loved it when the swordswoman protagonist, Gideon, described her necromancer counterpart as “an evil stick.” I laughed so hard that I almost fell out of my chair. Deadly s Read more of this blog post »

Light Fiction

What would you say light fiction was? It’s definitely nothing to do with the weight of the book, though I would advise against dropping the three volume paperback of The Lord of the Rings on your foot (to say nothing of the hardback!).

Light fiction isn’t necessarily anything to do with genre either. Read more of this blog post »
