  1. Stereotypes

    Stereotypes: what are they? The internet definition is this: “a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing.” Well, in a nutshell they are our assumptions about other people. Just because someone is dressed a certain way, or talks or behaves a certain way we think they fall into a certain category. This, however, is often inaccurate. I am just as bad about this as everyone I know…sometimes I’m better about not judging and sometimes I’m worse. I ...

  2. Doctor Who: Voyager & Abslom Daak: Dalek Killer Graphic Novels

    "The Masque of Mandragora" was a pretty good start to the season. A proper period piece with an interesting alien threat, some swashbuckling and evil cult with creepy masks. Hieronymous looked particularly menacing in his purple robes and grotesque golden mask. The scene where he takes off his mask to reveal that he has become Helix energy was a cool visual. We also get a walk around the

    "Terror of the Zygons" was a solid story. The Loch Ness monster looked cheap but the Zygons and their sets were better. The tongue-like tentacle design of the Zygons themselves is pretty disgusting. Pity we don't see the Zygons again on TV until the 50th Anniversary special "Day of the Doctor".

"Robot" the first full episode to feature Tom Baker is easily the weakest and your probably better off just skipping it. The highlights of this serial are the wardrobe montage, the first jelly babies reference and the giant robot which looks kind of cool despite some poor special effects.


    Overall "The Ark in Space" is a really solid story despite Harry making

  6. A Toy Box in a Funhouse

    This has been a long time in the making. I can't make any promises as to the quality of the writing because this is a first draft. Anyhow, read it over. And please give any necessary criticism. This piece needs to shine before its publication date

    I'm not generally into fantasy but I really enjoyed this. It has lots of colorful characters, swashbuckling, a mystery steeped in its own mythology and a quest for a legendary sword. The quest is genuinely exciting and the battles are tense. I felt the ending was very touching. Not sure if I should read all the sequels in the series or just cherry pick the better ones.

  8. The Hunter

    Philae's blue hair sparkled Under the open crystal sky, the low walls of the stone alley offering no protection from the glitter. No one lived out here anymore, the entire sector had been evacuated last year due to the toxic glitter growing in and blocking people's lungs. It took years of exposure, however, to end someone's life. Philae had felt safe responding to the message:Meet me in Scheyrock Alley, at six hour light. Philae was prompt, as always. She had many faults, but lateness wasn't one ...

    IAN FLEMING
    ...with most of my sex behind me now

    Part 1:

    "I remember an old girlfriend of Ian Fleming's saying: ‘Ian was like one of the characters in the plays of that major 19th-century Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen; that character was always waiting for something wunderbar to happen to him.’ Ian has, or rather had, lots of company in this regard. Millions now wait and hope for little and large stimulus packages to come their way as they go through ...

    This award winning play was turned into a film back in 2000. The book contains graphic descriptions of sexual acts and other debaucheries often disturbing and horrific. It examines the effects the Marquis' writings had on readers, censorship and hypocrisy. Quills depicts the last days of the Marquis de Sade at the Charenton insane asylum.

    One of his few novels and while it's not his best work by any means, it may be worth checking out for those interested in his writings. Ultimate World depicts an alien invasion and the consequences it has on the human race. The aliens, who the humans name Xenos, are so advanced that the human race is utterly helpless against them

    I'm not a big fan of fantasy but I enjoyed how this novel perfectly melded magic with science fiction by pitting them against each other. When the terrible and powerful wizard Det Morson was defeated his infant son was sparred and sent to live on a parallel world without magic. To maintain the balance between the worlds another baby of the same

    Delany makes some interesting commentary on language and how it effects the way people think and act while telling an epic outer space adventure featuring a colorful full cast of characters, espionage and plenty of action.
