Review/Rant: Star Trek: Discovery (Episodes 3&4)

As promised, I’m doing another review of ST:D. I honestly haven;t been looking forward to it, but seeing as episodes 3&4 are the true first episodes of this series, and there is so, so much wrong here as well. I don’t plan on reviewing the rest, though I may try and find and watch moreContinue reading “Review/Rant: Star Trek: Discovery (Episodes 3&4)”

Review/Rant: Star Trek: Discovery (Episodes 1&2)

Ooookay. After hyping this a bit on Twitter, I really hope this delivers. Before we get to the ST:D, however, a bit of background. I was practically raised on Star Trek. My parents have been huge fans of the original series since well before I was born, and they own the entire thing on VHS. Yes,Continue reading “Review/Rant: Star Trek: Discovery (Episodes 1&2)”

Book Review: For Steam and Country

This review’s been long in coming, but I’m finally getting to it. It’s always harder to do reviews when it’s been some time since I read the book, but I haven’t forgotten anything major. Full disclosure before I begin, I am friends with Jon del Arroz, the author of For Steam and Country. However, that didn’tContinue reading “Book Review: For Steam and Country”

Thoughts on being The Only Pirate at the Party (or the only sci-fi/fantasy writer in history class)

So, this post has been a long time in coming, but it was one that I wanted to be sure I finished (for point of reference, I first started writing this over a year ago). Back then my hair was short, my thesis was months from completion, and I was still querying agents. My, howContinue reading “Thoughts on being The Only Pirate at the Party (or the only sci-fi/fantasy writer in history class)”

Movie Review: Mythica: The Necromancer

Yes, I am (finally) back! It’s been far, far too long since I’ve posted anything up here, but I at least have some good reasons, namely completing my 45,000 word Master’s Thesis, as well as working to get things in order for an intercontinental move coming up in August–more on that at a later date.Continue reading “Movie Review: Mythica: The Necromancer”

Movie Review: Mythica: The Darkspore

As promised, here is my review of Mythica: The Darkspore, the second movie in Arrowstorm Entertainment’s Mythica series. Full disclosure, I did back Mythica 2 on Kickstarter, as I did the first movie in the series. As I mentioned in my previous review, I don’t intend to make straight-up movie reviews a regular thing here,Continue reading “Movie Review: Mythica: The Darkspore”

Book Review: The Crimson Campaign by Brian McClellan (spoilers)

Well it’s about time I got to reviewing this book. I’ve actually read it twice now; the first was more than half a year ago, but I never got around to writing a review. As the time passed, and I picked up my copy of the third book in the Powder Mage Trilogy, The AutumnContinue reading “Book Review: The Crimson Campaign by Brian McClellan (spoilers)”

Book Review: The Providence of Fire by Brian Stavely (spoilers)

Time for another delayed review (though only slightly this time.) I’d actually put off reading this book until I got the other delayed reviews finished, but I still didn’t end up getting it done on time. Still, here we are. ( I don’t have the book in front of me at the moment, so pleaseContinue reading “Book Review: The Providence of Fire by Brian Stavely (spoilers)”

Movie Review: Mythica: A Quest for Heroes

Something new! (And my second post in two weeks!) I’ve written about movies before, but those were called Learning From Movies. Reason being, they were movies that had some good or worthwhile aspects, but overall weren’t ‘good’ movies. With those posts, I briefly reviewed the movies, then talked about the good in them, which oneContinue reading “Movie Review: Mythica: A Quest for Heroes”

Book Review: The Emperor’s Blades by Brian Staveley (Major Spoilers)

(Quick preface: I originally started writing this post a couple months back, just after finishing the book, but lacked the time to properly put together the entire post. Don’t think my thoughts have changed much at all, and hopefully I don’t make any dumb mistakes. The review intro is also a bit outdated, but IContinue reading “Book Review: The Emperor’s Blades by Brian Staveley (Major Spoilers)”
