Richard B. Knight (The “B” stands for Brandon) teaches Language Arts during the day and writes fiction at night. He decided that he wanted to be a novelist back in the fourth grade. It was all quite spontaneous. Back then, his teacher asked all of the students what they wanted to be when they grew up, and while many students chose “doctor”, or “lawyer”, or “astronaut,” Richard, wanting to be funny, chose “drag queen garbage man”. It wasn’t until his peers starting reading off their choices that Richard decided that it would probably behoove him to write down another profession. He has stuck with “novelist” ever since.

Richard has a love of movies, video games, and comic books, and all three influences come through in his writing. You can

In the end, the kids are much better for us being in the classroom. :) Thanks again!(less)

Blade Runner is one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time. It's the "thinking man's" sci-fi film. Ridley Scott is a genius, and Harrison Ford has never been better.

Except none of that is true. At least not for me. Blade Runner is a boring, meandering, mess of a movie, and I hate it, even if you love it. Sure, everybody talks about it like Jesus Christ Himself was behind the camera when it w... Read more of this blog post »

The Emerald City of Oz by L. Frank Baum

Aunt Em and Uncle are in Oz, so that's different. Also, the deus ex machina at the end of this book is a bit too much to stomach. Even more than some of the other books in the series. And by the way this book ends, I'm wondering if L. Frank Baum inte ...more

A play as relevant back then as it is now, An Enemy of the People is vintage Ibsen. A doctor discovers that there is something rotten in his town, and when he speaks out for the benefit of his fellow man, they turn on him. A towering work. Not Ibsen' ...more

At times enlightening and beautiful, and at other times a slog, The Color Purple is a great book, but I don't know if it should have won the Pulitzer Prize. I would have to know what else was up in 1982. But looking at this book from somebody who has ...more

Okay, so either the first book or this one are the very best in the entire series, and I'm leaning with this one. Man, what an ending. This is definitely the most emotional book in the series, and it should be since it's a war novel. I'd actually lik ...more

So, I probably shouldn't have read this right after All American Boys, because I've been angry all week. It's not as good as AAB (Mostly because we don't really get "the other side"), but Dear Martin is still pretty potent stuff. Some of the truth is ...more

I think the power of this book is that it truly does fulfill Dr. King's dream of equality, as it was written by two incredibly talented men, one black, the other white. It's this format that makes the novel incredibly nuanced. And all the different t ...more
