Kyle Robert Shultz developed the power of creating zany, fantastical worlds in his early teens, when he was bitten by a radioactive book. He is the author of multiple series set in the Afterverse, a parallel universe where myths, fairy tales, and classic stories are real events and part of history. He lives in self-imposed exile in the southern Idaho desert, far enough away from humanity to protect innocent lives should he lose control of his awesome fictional powers and rip a hole in the space-time continuum or something.
Kyle is a Christian who believes in writing high-quality stories free from agendas, politics, and objectionable content. His stories are clean, but not remotely safe. In reading them, you assume all risks—Kyle cannot be he

I first came up with "Beaumont" while playing around with the phrase "Beauty and the Beast" on paper to brainstorm a title for a fairytale fantasy series. I liked the way "Beaumont and Beasley" echoed the title of the original story, so I went with it. I didn't really think about the link to the original author until much later. It turned out to be very convenient. :D(less)

Doctor Who: Revolution of the Daleks Review

Welp, I wasn’t planning to do this, but I can’t stop myself. While I’m probably not going to be returning to blogging on a regular schedule for a while yet, I have to share a few thoughts on the latest television installment of Doctor Who: Revolution of the Daleks.


I don’t think I’ve ever felt more ambivalent going into a Doctor Who episode, honestly, which is kind of sad. I wasn’t dreading it, but
