Gideon The Ninth

In September 2019, a fever dream of a fantasy book was published, acclaiming not only the Hugo Nominee for the best novel but a relatively tight-knit following. A tale of a knight and a necromancer whose life’s purpose is to make one another miserable. I am, of course, talking about Tamsyn Muir’s Gideon the Ninth,Continue reading “Gideon The Ninth”

A Top 2022 Pick: I’m Glad My Mom Died

Authors Note: This story covers traumatic experiences that I mention. I wasn’t well versed in TV shows growing up, spending most of my childhood ignorant of shows outside of Digimon, Pokemon, and Teen Titans.

Winterset Hollow

Most of the books I’ve read this year had been due to a whim review or comment on the Internet.

This, odd cultural event that swept across the US intoContinue reading “Lolita”

Justin Cronin: The Passage

When it comes to mythological creatures there is one to me that stands leagues above the others. Though rather embarrassing I am admitting in this sentence that I absolutely adore vampires.

Neil Gaiman’s Ocean At The End Of The Lane

Neil Gaiman is without a doubt one of the most influential modern fantasy writers active today. Rather it is his hit comic Sandman, his metaphor-filled American Gods, or one of my favorites the adorable Stardust. Gaiman has a distinct ability to craft very different stories using the backdrop of modern fantasy, this world of magicContinue reading “Neil Gaiman’s Ocean At The End Of The Lane”

McCarthy’s Ability To Write Villains

One of the highest honors that can be bestowed on an author is the Pulitzer Prize. It, much like many awards spanning different arts doesn’t necessarily fully encapsulate the work or necessarily the cultural impact of an author, many popular, and often brilliant authors fail to even get nominated. But in 2007 Cormac McCarthy ascendedContinue reading “McCarthy’s Ability To Write Villains”
