Review: Elephants and Corpses by Kameron Hurley

Review: Elephants and Corpses by Kameron Hurley

Nev is a body mercenary, a kind of necromancer who actually inhabits the bodies he reanimates. And he doesn’t just reanimate them, he truly brings them back to life. The body. Not the (spirit of the) deceased. And he seems to revive them into better shape than they had ever been in their original incarnation. […]

Bookfessional: Long-Running Series . . . When to Quit?

Bookfessional: Long-Running Series . . . When to Quit?

Bookfessional: When to Quit If you read speculative fiction, then you read at least one long-running series. You have too. It’s inevitable. In my case, lover of urban fantasy that I am, that’s primarily what I read. Most of my favorite series have (or are on their way to having) 10+ books, with various additional […]

Review: Bruiser by Neal Shusterman

Review: Bruiser by Neal Shusterman

First of all, this book might just have the best first chapter I’ve ever read in my life. Secondly . . . this book is weird. I’m talking The Talented Mr. Ripley weird. And like THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY, it’s better that you go into reading BRUISER knowing as little as possible. That being said, […]

Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy, vol. 2

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY might turn out to be my favorite Marvel movie franchise. And I really (really, really) love Marvel movies. The second installment of GotG hits the ground running with Star⚡️Lord and co. battling a toothy interdimensional monster on behalf of a people called the Sovereign. The Sovereign are beautiful, intelligent, arrogant, and […]

Bookfessional: Authors as People as Authors

Bookfessional: Authors as People as Authors

Ninety-nine times out of a hundred, I read the books I read because: hype / cover whore / highly recommended by someone trustworthy / auto-buy author, etc. BUT. On rare occasions, an author comes to my attention, not b/c of their work, but b/c of themselves as humans. They did or said some very cool […]

Review: American Gods, S01E01 – The Bone Orchard

If you’ve been paying attention, you know that I’ve been SUPER excited about Neil Gaiman’s AMERICAN GODS airing on STARZ this past Sunday. I’m not saying I’m going to post on every, single episode (I’m not saying I won’t either, we’ll see), but for this first one and the last one, for sure. After some […]

American Gods. The first episode of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods airs on Sunday night. Did I […]
