A Possible Sniper in the Guerilla Cultural War

Here’s a strange thing for you. Somebody published a book – now unavailable – about how to use the current “Believe All Women” social and legal framework to remove any man from power. From the description: In How to Destroy A Man Now (DAMN), Dr. Angela Confidential (a business...

Panfilov’s 28

My discursion into Russian cinema in search of a high-T alternative to Hollywood’s low-T offerings has had mixed results. The Guardians is Moscowood’s answer to the Avengers by way of a plot reminiscent of an Asylum film without the cheeky self-awareness.  The  opening twenty minutes offers a largely “as...

A Very Special Episode of Geek Gab

Tomorrow, yours truly will be making an appearance as a very special guest on a very special episode of Geek Gab.  We’ll be talking about all the usual stuff: films, games, books, and more! Here’s last week’s episode:...

Hawaii Five-Uh-Oh

If you’re into network action/dramedy shows, you’ll want to give tonight’s episode of Hawaii Five-O a look.  For one thing, the show has not been renewed for an eleventh season.  Ten years is a pretty good run for any show, and this revival is one of the few to...

David V. Stewart’s works have appeared here before.  No, wait, my reviews for City of Silver and Eyes in the Walls appeared over on the Castalia House blog.  Anyway, the point is that I’m going to be making an appearance later today on David’s WriteStream. David is a solid...

Merch! Something for the Hard Core Fans

The final stages of Captain Sudden’s adventures with his Space Princess are drawing near. The third book in the trilogy should arrive early this summer, and to help launch the conclusion of the tale, I’ve commissioned three new covers.  Here is a preliminary look at the new designs: The...

Feanor et al. Did Nothing Wrong

How am I just now learning about the Feanor Did Nothing Wrong memes? For those who don’t know, the story goes a little something like this: So the Valar (kind of like the gods of Middle-Earth, but maybe like archangels or something in-between) started out by making literal heaven...

Free Comics!

Yo, comic books fans! You might remember my review from March of last year about on a fun little graphic novel called Gun Ghoul (available here), produced by Alpha Dog Studios. He’s at it again, and this time he has a little something nice for you.  A couple of...

Lumberlands – A Maple Flavored D&D Supplement

Now this is what I like to see in a D&D product. Lumberlands: Rise of the LeafLords! Not really.  But take a look at the maple-swilling description of this light-hearted product: When you need a break from tromping through ruined castles and braining hobgoblins,  come spend some time in...

Walking Back the Strange

Last week I did a partial review of an interesting experiment in tabletop D&D.  After reading through the basic theory of using Fortean weirdness to D&D to help recapture some of the magic lost by making literally everything magic, I gave the product a solid recommendation.  The concept is...
