The other would be a novel set in the same world with Lucas as the protagonist and Andy as a supporting character. Lucas has an interesting story to tell that I would like to explore.(less)

Movie Review: Wonder Woman 84

Wonder Woman 84 wasn’t a terrible movie, but it certainly wasn’t a good movie. To me the question I can’t figure out is who greenlit this movie. After coming off a tremendously successful movie and one of the best in the DC franchise, they settled on a plot of a guy who has a wish to turn himself into this wishstone, to grant wishes to as many people as he can without any particular rhyme or reaso Read more of this blog post »

Demons by John Shirley

Demons for me is a tale of two books. Apparently, it started off as a novella, and later became a novel, when a second, longer part was added to it. The first part of demons was great. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It had an interesting concept, a ...more

“I have seen many atrocities, but they are outweighed by the kind deeds that may seem small, but when added together, create a strong human spirit. Perhaps you would benefit from living a simple life away from war and politics.”
Carl Alves, Two For Eternity

“Horror itself is a bit of a bullied genre, the antagonist being literary snobbery and public misconception. And I think good horror tackles our darkest fears, whatever they may be. It takes us into the minds of the victims, explores the threats, disseminates fear, studies how it changes us. It pulls back the curtain on the ugly underbelly of society, tears away the masks the monsters wear out in the world, shows us the potential truth of the human condition. Horror is truth, unflinching and honest. Not everybody wants to see that, but good horror ensures that it's there to be seen.”
Kealan Patrick Burke
