The Dark Side of Realm Makers

The Dark Side of Realm Makers

That headline is not about Travis Perry’s costume, Mike Duran’s horror seminar, or even post-conference letdown. All those things could properly fall under this heading, but that’s not what I’m on about. I hesitate to write this post, because I am going to come across as Whiney McWhiner.

Back In The Saddle…Again?

Back In The Saddle…Again?

Whew. Give me a moment. Better make that two. … Okay, everything’s good now. Still catching my breath though.

Twilight and My Own New Dawn

This isn’t really about Twilight, the vampire book. Oh I thought it was too, at first. I noticed Meyers’ books years before the true fever set in and it got so you couldn’t not notice. I attended the same college as she did. They featured her in a big article of the school newspaper. Alumni […]
