Weekend Reading

As you can see, the blog (and eventually the related sites) is undergoing some changes. But that doesn’t mean I am willing to give up my weekend reading. What I did earlier was ask some trusted friends to send me reading recommendations. The only proviso was they had to have read the book. Here are a few of the titles they suggested. From D. Jason Fleming, I received these two recommendations: Through […]

Halloween Reads, Pt. 2

Yesterday, I posted links to some Halloween reads I’ve enjoyed, as well as a couple of my own. I’m going to continue doing so through Halloween. I hope you enjoy these books as much as I did.

ConFur (The Vampire Con Series) by Kate Paulk A vampire at a science fiction convention might not seem that far-fetched […]

Just Say No To Sanctimonious Rants – by Kate Paulk

(Kate is my sister from another mother. She is one of the nicest people I know — until she comes across someone climbing on their soapbox without doing adequate research. That is especially true when they are trying to talk about the evils of a bit of coding and they don’t take the time to research the topic. You see, Kate’s 9 – 5 job is to test coding and tell programmers […]

Monday Morning — Ouch!

Special Types of Entitled by Kate Paulk (reposted from ATH)

(this is a repost from According to Hoyt) SPECIAL TYPES OF ENTITLED – KATE PAULK Apparently kicking back at the idiocy of the Social Justice Warriors brings the really special entitled ones crawling out from under whichever rock they were hiding under. That or there’s just something in the air at the moment. Or maybe the water. The first round of really special entitlement came from According to Hoyt on Saturday’s post, […]

Strong women in science fiction – a few thoughts

Earlier today, I read a comment from someone complaining that the women characters in science fiction are nothing but “men with boobs”.
