Monsters, Part II by Steve Berman

Many of you may remember Steve Berman’s post last March which he called Monsters Anonymous. In case you didn’t see it here is a link. In it he talked about why he hated certain types of monsters and wanted to stake them. ūüôā¬†Well Steve is back today with another scary post¬† – ************* So, after several months of penance, community service, and paying a small fee, Wave has graciously allowed…

The Rocky Horror Picture Show Revisited, and my Top 5 Horror Movies

Who hasn’t heard of or seen¬†The Rocky Horror Picture Show? Probably those of you who are under 25, and that’s a shame.

I was amazed at the antics of the regular theatregoers as…

Petit Morts – The Little Series that Could

Petit Morts – The Little Series that Could

One of the most delightful series¬†around¬†is¬†a compilation of short stories called Petit Morts, which have now¬†totalled¬†ten books so far, and I believe the intent is for fifteen of these gems to be published¬†by the time¬†the series ends.

Ins and Outs of M/M Romance: Know When to Say ‘No’ by J.L. Langley

J.L. Langley is one of the most gifted and imaginative writers around. I love all of her series and standalone books, but my personal favourite is ¬†her Sci-Regency series with two books released to date: My Fair Captain and The Englor Affair. I keep asking when the next book is going to be available because it seems so long since The Englor Affair. ūüôĀ¬†I also love her With and Without…
