Review: Lightning Bolts of Zeus by: D. Alan Lewis

This book was great. I sat down to start reading it on a Sunday morning… thinking to get a few chapters in and come back to it later after errands. Well, the errands ended up waiting… and waiting… because I just didn’t put the book down until the end. The ‘world’ of this story is […]

Review: The Pullman Porter

My mind works in mysterious ways. Or if you ask my mother and closest friends… ‘WEIRD’ ways. When I think of Pullman – I think of UPS. Yes, the United Parcel Service. Odd, because my family is BIG into the Post Office (Three Generations into). UPS uniforms are made… and UPS trucks are painted in […]

The Tone… (1 of 3)

I09 Article: What Does it Mean When People say your Story’s Tone is Wrong? I’ve had thoughts about this over time especially in regards to Steampunk. Those films that got it ‘right’ and those that weren’t quite… THERE. Of course, films, books, media… it’s all subjective. I might love it… you might hate it… or […]

Love the illustrations and the interesting facts I find. BUT, yeah, you knew there would be at least one but… Two eras as different as the Regency […]
