Tales From A Galaxy Far, Far Away

As another installment of the journey to The Force Awakens, Disney Lucasfilm Press released four stand-alone novellas by Landry Q. Walker. All are subtitled Tales From A Galaxy Far Away, and are part of the same series as The Perfect Weapon. All four are…

Star Wars: The Perfect Weapon

Star Wars: The Perfect Weapon by Delilah S. Dawson is the first in a series of novellas being released as part of the journey to The Force Awakens.  It was a mostly solid entry in the series with two minor exceptions. While the main…

Brick Shakespeare Builds On Classic Tales

Some things just go perfectly together: Chocolate and peanut butter. Cocoa and little bitty marshmallows on cold nights. Me and red wine. LEGO minifigs and William Shakespeare. Bear with me for a few minutes and I promise I’ll convince you of that last one…

Furiously Happy: A Second Memoir from the Bloggess

Taxidermy monstrosities. Fainting spells in the stirrups at the gynecologist’s office. Wild adventures in the Australian Outback while dressed in a full kangaroo furry suit. Chronic illness, both mental and physical. What do all these things have in common? They’re all part of the…

You’re Never Weird On The Internet (Almost)

This is part review, part love letter dedicated to a book about a creator who has inspired me like few others ever have. You’re Never Weird On The Internet (Almost) is the memoir of Felicia Day, creator of The Guild, co-star of Doctor Horrible’s…

Star Wars Imperial Handbook: Your Friendly Guide To Ruling The Galaxy

The Imperial Handbook was released last year as part of a deluxe boxed edition for a whopping list price of $99 ($78.00 on Amazon Prime). This week, as the newest entry in a popular series of guides including The Bounty Hunter Code, The Jedi…

Star Wars: Dark Disciple Review

Dark Disciple by Christie Golden is a solid entry in the new Star Wars canon for both Clone Wars fans and those who have never watched it alike. Fans who have been waiting for closure ever since the TV series was cancelled will appreciate…

Star Wars Epic Yarns Is a Delight

Okay, a book with only twelve words isn’t exactly targeted at my demographic. That said, I’m shamelessly fond of Star Wars: Epic Yarns by brothers Jack and Holman Wang for combining two of my favorite things: crafts and Star Wars. Each of the three…

Confessions Of A Part-Time Sorceress

I had such high hopes for Confessions of a Part-Time Sorceress. But instead of a fun, cheeky look at the world of D&D through the eyes of a girl, I got an appalling mess of tacky stereotypes paraded out as ‘humor.’ I tried to…

Spoiler-Free Redshirts Review

Redshirts by John Scalzi exceeded my expectations on every count; plot, concept, and characterization. I went into it a little hesitant, because I’m not really a big Star Trek fan and I had never read anything by Scalzi before. And most of all, I…

The Newsflesh Trilogy

Mira Grant’s Newsflesh trilogy is a refreshing take on the zombie novel.  These books are recommended for anyone who loves zombies but has become tired of the standard template that most of the genre’s writers seem to follow. Feed, the first entry in Grant’s…
