The Wolves Of West Virginia Part 4: The Wolves Howl

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series The Wolves Of West Virginia

My head hurt a lot.

There was a giant knot right above my temple which got progres­sively more painful every time I prodded it. My Wal-mart shift was. Well… have you ever been to Wal-mart? That's what it was, only with a sore head and not enough sleep. I was really looking forward to getting home to my comfy bed and crashing for the evening. At least until I remem­bered Steven.

The Clockwork GiantL

Book Review: The Clockwork Giant by Brooke Johnson

Okay so this is a slightly unusual situ­a­tion. I'm reviewing a book that won't be published until 2015, but it was published when I bought it.

Oh this was such a good episode. Doctor Who is a juggling act and th best episodes manage to give you humor, fear, action and a big idea all in a single package.

Positivity Is Not A Bad Thing — Project Hieroglyph's Push For Positive Science Fiction

In the last couple of decades the tone of science fiction has been over­whelm­ingly pessimistic. There's a cultural notion of late that it's more real­istic to portray every­thing as going wrong and being bad. Because that's what life is. Except it isn't.
