The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

July 3, 2022

I am sure I will turn a few heads and tick some people off by giving The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald only 4 stars. It is probably due to me being a spoiled attention deficit reader who is used to authors and movie directors trying to grab my attention tightly so I will […]

WildernessPunk- Is Overpopulation a Racist Concept?

June 11, 2022

Hello, welcome back if this isn’t your first time, and let me quickly state, I’m not usually like most writers. During the pandemic lock down, some took time to finish novels and brought their writing to a new level. Pah, why be so predictable. Me, I wrote less and spent more time with my kids, […]

The Ancestor’s Tale by Richard Dawkins

June 1, 2022

The Ancestor’s Tale by Richard Dawkins is a scientific achievement of epic proportions. Dawkins, in a personable and informative manner, guides the reader back through time. We stop at each Rendezvous Point where we meet up with a wider spread of ancestors as he continues backwards through the evolution of life on this planet. This […]

Vista, Princess Of Hell

May 13, 2022

She gazed into the brass mirror. For a moment her eyes lingered on the five dragons encircling the edge of the reflective surface. A gift from her adopted father. Beautiful, yes, but she often wondered if he gave it to her as a continuous reminder of half of her heritage and… eternal debt. She allowed […]

The Next Missing Link

March 26, 2022

The rain stopped but the streets remained wet. Miles skirted large inky puddles while his long strides hurried him through the frigid night. He didn’t look forward to the upcoming meeting. Professor Blaine saw the end of his days looming before him and Miles feared his elder might wish to speak to him about finances […]

I Get Interviewed by Two Blue Stockings

December 29, 2020

Author’s Note: Hi folks. I was interviewed this week in regards to my experience being an author. It will later be published @Two Blue Stockings, but I figured I’d also throw it on here, just for fun. It is a little gloomy in regards to giving a spark of inspiration to new authors, but if […]

Dead Man’s Hand, an Anthology of The Weird West

September 25, 2020

Dead Man’s Hand, an Anthology of The Weird West was a true joy to read, at least for a man such as myself, living in the southwest and addicted to Speculative Fiction. This anthology had it all, Steampunk, Fantasy, Dark Fantasy, and I was so pleased to find several stories which were straight up Horror. […]

Dungeons and Dragons Dungeons Master Guide for 5E

August 31, 2020

Hey look, if anyone is paying attention, you might remember me stating the Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes would be the last Dungeons and Dragons handbook I would be reviewing for a while, but I forgot about the Dungeon Master’s Guide which I had actually not finished. Somewhat strangely, even though I have been a game […]

The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander

November 21, 2019

This is not the first time I have read The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander. The first time was several decades ago when I was twelve. This time I am reading it to my young boys after they get into their beds for the night. Funny how little I remembered, but that is another […]
