I Love Paperback Sci-Fi


The other day I picked up Sun of Suns: Book One of Virga by Karl Schroeder. It’s good, really good. It’s sort of a Flash Gordon meets Victorian England/Steampunk in a no gravity bubble. This is really beside the point though. What I really wanted to talk about is my love of the Mass Market […]

I Have Senioritis…

I’ve been thinking about what I will say and won’t say on this blog and I’ve decided that I’m going to treat it like a conversation. […]
