Sex Criminals, Volume One: One Weird Trick.

Look at that. Almost four whole months have gone by, and I still haven’t finished a single bulk review.

Well… shit.

Relax. I’m working on them. (Yes, I’ve more than one series in the works — which partly explains the long delay.) In the meantime, here’s something relatively new for you: my take on Sex Criminals, Volume One: One Weird Trick.

“Saga”: A Fun Space Opera

I’ve never been into love stories. I’m all for the real-life version, but when put on paper, they just don’t look interesting to me.

Snippets #8.

A month after my last link list, Snippets is (finally) back!

Yeah. It’s a long list. Had to dig deep into my RSS feed, social media feeds and Pocket list to find the ones I found interesting and share-worthy. Then I had to review everything and trim the list down, which called for a few more hours of work. 😛 The links included here kept me reading, writing, WANTing, organizing, and planning during the holidays and in recent weeks; hope they do the same for you. Enjoy!
