Review: A Stray, Astray

With COVID-19 sweeping the Earth, I’ve started a series reviewing novels about plagues. First on the list was The Immortals by Tracy Hickman. Next, I review a novella by E. H. Night entitled A Stray, Astray.  I previously reviewed The Four Before Me and MIND, also by Night. TFBM was a good thriller and MIND […]

“Hey Hun!” Illegal Tender Series

A while back, I blogged about the evils of MLM “business opportunities” (scams) and why they’re so toxic. Ethan Vanderbuilt recently linked to a Yahoo Finance podcast called Illegal Tender which is now doing an MLM series and interviewing women who have been taken by these scams. It’s worth checking out. 

Review: The Immortals

With the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) panic sweeping the globe, I thought it was worth revisiting The Immortals by Tracy Hickman. Hickman writes almost exclusively fantasy, so this dystopian tragedy tends to stick out in his bibliography.  I first heard about it on his Dragonhearth podcast back around 2007 when he and his wife Laura released a […]

I Swear I’m Not a Mormon (LDS)!

They’re some of the nicest people I know. Some of the best authors and doctors I know are Mormon. Most Mormons are […]

On the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Market Volatility

Yesterday, I gave my hot take on Twitter about the Dow Jones dropping over 1,000 points. So now I’m going to elaborate more. To everyone crying about the #DOW dropping: You knew for the last two weeks it might tank due to #Covid_19 fears and didn’t think to do some sell-offs while at its record […]

The “Creepo Handshake”

I don’t know why some guys do certain stupid things to women in an effort to get with them. Catcalling or telling a woman to “smile more” comes to the forefront of everyone’s minds when you talk about this kind of thing. Seriously, when has either of those actually worked for a guy? At the […]

Review: Son of the Black Sword

It is when you become the master that you can break the rules… Nope, this isn’t a quote from the book, but it describes both the main character and the author.  I know I’m five years late to reading this book, but I finally got around to reading and reviewing it. Larry Correia is very […]

Atlanta Nights: 15th Anniversary and the Lessons it Taught Us

This year, the “novel” Atlanta Nights by a group of sci-fi authors under the pseudonym Travis Tea turns 15 and the lessons it teaches us are still as true as ever. Let’s go down memory lane and see what this “horrible” book is all about.  In the early 2000s, bookseller PublishAmerica was already under fire […]
