THE GREEK MYTHOLOGY BOOK TAG

You read it here first, folks. I'm doing a book tag! I saw this tag done over at Bookdragonism and I decided I HAD TO HAVE SOME OF THAT ON ME BLOG! It's about books, it has so many needlessly convoluted categories and I love every single one of them, so let's crack those knuckles... Continue Reading →

Can’t wait for September!

Look at this cover! A three-eyed cat! A woman who looks like the Lady! A man that has to be Croaker! A pair of kids, one demonic, the other -- sort of nice, if you're into that sort, and whatnot.

Thursday Spotlight: Sins of Empire

Sins of Empire is one hell of a ride. Never had I touched a Brian McCllelan book before this one, although his Powder Mage universe has received critical and fan acclaim alike--enough of both, anyway, even for someone like me, still too bloody busy reading classic works of fantasy (like the wonderful Black Company series.

Spotlight Thursday: The Black Company
