Review – Batman: The Terror by David Breitenbeck

Fan fiction is not my usual topic for review, readers, but this story was too good not to write about – particularly since I beta read it for the author before it was published. 😉 One must take the opportunity to praise worthy stories, and The Terror is no exception.

Review: Marymae and the Nightmare Man by A.M. Freeman (with Illustrations by Jesalyn Kate)

Review – The Last Straw: A Critical Autopsy of a Galaxy Far, Far Away by John C. Wright

The last time this author listened to an audiobook, it was on CD. While quite interesting, it required more attention than reading a novel. This means she had to be engaged in some kind of mindless activity that allowed her to focus on what is being read aloud rather than on what is before her … Continue reading Review – The Last Straw: A Critical Autopsy of a Galaxy Far, Far Away by John C. Wright
