Duty, Sacrifice, and What to Expect Going Forward.

As those who follow me online may well know by now, I will be starting an 18-month stint of service in the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) starting tomorrow, as of this writing. This was something I first thought of doing years ago, and later decided that it was something I must do. And tomorrow, that dream…

Women in Star Wars: Tor.com Misses the Mark–Again

I’ve been fairly open about the numerous issues I’ve had with modern Star Wars. While I will continue to give The Force Awakens the benefit of the doubt (for overall quality) until I see where The Last Jedi takes the series, I cannot ignore the major problems that have become more and more visible, especially in Rogue One.

It’s been an awesome process, form start to finish, albeit a very different one from A Greater Duty. With that, the book had been in progress, to one degree or another, for almost…
