A Bizarre Omen Today of What 2021 Promises…

When a Book and a Few Bucks Find You By Divine Providence

So it was around 7:45 AM this morning, just over an hour until Joe Biden’s inauguration as president, when I set off on the morning walk with Maura, our 10-year-old Siberian Husky who remains very healthy, happy, energetic, and full of love.

Our nation’s pageantry was happening on the other side of the continent in Washington D.C., and it played on the TV when we departed, a bit earlier than usual but Maura had requested it then and I could think of no reason not to comply.

Understanding Your Options for the Upcoming Dragon Awards

By Tamara Wilhite and Declan Finn

What Are the Dragon Awards?

The Dragon Awards are a set of literary awards voted on by fandom. They’re presented at Dragon Con, a convention typically held in Atlanta, Georgia over Labor Day weekend. The Dragon Awards were first awarded in 2016. It has become one of the largest multi-media and pop culture conventions in the United States.

NEW ESSAY: People in Boxes

It has been a little more than 18 years since my husband proposed to me in perhaps the least romantic way possible. But that’s not the story.

We are gamers and science fiction fans, which, as anyone who knows that segment of the population will attest, tend to be WOKE. And most of our friends were indeed Woke (the few exceptions were ex-Marines) and young. This means chaotic lifestyles, lots of partner switching, lots of atypical pairings – or triadings, if that’s a word. I knew three different MMF relationships, and there were always sleeping-around dramas going on somewhere.

In other words, our crowd were not the most maritally stable of people.

An Interview with Author D.M. Wozniak

I read and reviewed D.M. Wozniak’s science fiction duology The Perihelion Complete Duology several years ago. It may yet prove to be prescient. I had the opportunity to interview him after the contested 2020 Presidential election.

An Interview with Author D. G. Martin

There is an entire genre of Santa Slasher movies. It may have started with “Tales From the Crypt: And All Through the House”, though you could say it was Bob Clark’s “Black Christmas.” It led to movies like “Silent Night, Deadly Night” (which even spawned a sequel), “Santa Claws” and at least a dozen others. And apparently, there are books based around the same theme like Hammer and Sleigh: The Rise of the Crimson North.

In Defense of Moviegoing

The moviegoing experience is in danger.

The Walt Disney Company recently announced that it would make streaming its primary focus, if need be. What that means is that its big-budget films, such as its superhero franchises, would go straight to Disney+. And Cineworld, the owner of Regal Cinemas, the second-largest theater chain in the United States, has shuttered its theaters. They’ve been unclear as to whether this is a permanent or temporary thing, but if it is permanent — and with the company’s insolvency talks, it could be, in part — then it’s not hard to imagine other theater companies, like AMC (which has indicated it could run out of money by the end of the year) and National Amusements, either closing or significantly altering their business model. 

This would totally alter the movie landscape — and not in a good way.

An Interview with Author Mike Baron

“If men were benign, there would be no need for superheroes.” – Mike Baron.

Mike Baron is a comic book creator. He launched the science fiction comic “Nexus” in the 1980s. However, he’s been busy releasing a variety of comic books and novels ever since. And I had the opportunity to interview this prolific author.
