Question: Do You Multi-Task While Listening To Audiobooks?

Question: Do You Multi-Task While Listening To Audiobooks?

I discovered the marvels of audiobooks back in 2011 with Richelle Mead’s GEORGINA KINCAID series, and from there started listening to roughly one title a month. I didn’t take an immediate liking to them, struggled with my fair share of crappy narrators, and learned the hard way that anything over 20 hours caused me to […]

Question: What Are Your SFF Deal Breakers?

Question: What Are Your SFF Deal Breakers?

One of the things I love most about reading speculative fiction is that almost anything is possible; a man can turn into a wolf, power isn’t measured by one’s size, time travel exists, and eternity takes on a whole new meaning when immortality is on the table.

Question: How Do You Read A Series?

Question: How Do You Read A Series?

I prefer to start at the beginning, and work my way through the installments in order, except for novellas & anthologies. I’ll usually leave these for a rainy day. The only time I’ll bend this rule is when an advanced copy lands in my P.O. box, and either the author has assured me that it […]

Question: Are You Into Safe Sex?

Question: Are You Into Safe Sex?

Unless you’re strictly a Young Adult reader, and even then there are still ‘mature’ books in this genre, you’ve probably encountered a decent amount of sex scenes in your fictional wanderings, but how many of ’em actually mentioned contraception in some way, shape or form? It doesn’t cross my mind a lot; however there are […]
