An Ancient Stirring is Here!

I know there are arguably bigger things in the news right now, but the big news of today is that book 6 in the Galaxy Ascendant series, An Ancient Stirring,  is now live on Amazon! (Currently just in ebook format; G-d willing the print version will be up soon; it depends on how long it takes for a…

Let’s Talk Girls Und Panzer: Episode 6

Been a little while since the last one of these, but I’m glad to be back to finish off Oarai’s first tournament battle. However, I should note that since these posts take some time to put together (they’re rather long, as you can see, and taking the screenshots only adds more time to the tally),…

Conservative Author Shadowbanned on Kickstarter

In the latest instance of forces conspiring against right-wing creators, bestselling author Jon Del Arroz’s Kickstarter campaign for his Dynamite Thor comic has been shadowbanned on Kickstarter, and google. Searching for the campaign by its name, or by Jon’s name, on the site won’t bring it up. You need the direct link. It doesn’t appear…

Let’s Talk Girls Und Panzer: Episode 5

After a bit of a delay, it’s time to get back to my look at Girls Und Panzer! Just a quick note, I do definitely plan on having other stuff here too. Got another couple posts lined up hopefully for this week. As fun as this series continues to be, I’m not going to turn this…

Let’s Talk Girls Und Panzer: Episode 4

Time for more Girls Und Panzer fun! If you haven’t been following this series of posts yet, I’ll be spoiling events of this episode, but nothing further if I can help it. The show is great; consider watching along with this, and experience the awesome wholesomeness for the first time. Now, into the episode. Episode…

Let’s Talk Girls Und Panzer: Episode 3

And we’re back! Apologies for it being later than planned; I again underestimated how much extra time taking all the necessary screenshots would require lol. Episode 3 is another busy one, our final episode of setup before we start getting what everyone wants: One tank battle after another. Episode 3 “Fighting A Match!” picks up…

Support Indie Fantasy Films, Too!

I mostly talk about books here, for obvious reasons, but there is also an decent indie sci-fi and fantasy film scene. Over the years, I’ve helped support a few via crowdfund, mostly by Arrowstorm Entertainment, who succeeded enough to get a CW fantasy show, The Outpost, which just got renewed for a third season. Today, however,…

Let’s Talk Girls Und Panzer: Episode 2

Now let’s get into episode 2: “Getting in the Tank!” Upon rewatching, I was reminded of just how much they managed to pack into this episode; it felt longer than 24 minutes, but in a good way. Once again, Girls Und Panzer demonstrates how to make good use of limited time. This episode picks up…

Character Development is Overrated

What is this heresy, you might be asking? Everyone always says character development is so important in stories! Well, it’s not quite so simple as that. I’ve thought a bit about this for a while now, but after seeing 1917 this week and watching a few reviews of it, I decided to actually write this. See,…
