In my mailbox: Empress of the Sun

Once again my mailman delivers a package with a hole in it. I don’t know if it’s just his curiosity of if someone (like the government) wants to know what’s in my packages but — WTF. Maybe it’s nothing more than my mailman hates me! At any rate, I received a free review copy of “Empress of the Sun” by Ian McDonald from the good folks at Pyr.

Empress of the Sun (Everness)

The airship Everness makes a Heisenberg Jump to an alternate Earth unlike any her crew has ever seen. Everett, Sen, and the crew find themselves above a plain that goes on forever in every direction without any horizon. There they find an Alderson Disc, an astronomical megastructure of incredibly strong material reaching from the orbit of Mercury to the orbit of Jupiter.

Then they meet the Jiju, the dominant species on a plane where the dinosaurs didn’t die out. They evolved, diversified, and have a twenty-five million year technology head-start on humanity. War between their kingdoms is inevitable, total and terrible.

Everness has jumped right into the midst of a faction fight between rival nations, the Fabreen and Dityu empires. The airship is attacked, but then defended by the forces of the Fabreen, who offers theEverness crew protection. But what is the true motive behind Empress Aswiu’s aid? What is her price?

The crew of the Everness is divided in a very alien world, a world fast approaching the point of apocalypse.

Ghost Hunter’s Michelle Tate leaves show

Another one bites the dust.

I guess that it will be some time before we learn of the real reason Michelle Tate left the Ghost Hunters show. On the one hand, I am glad that GH is mentioning a team members departure from the show rather than noticing that someone has simply disappeared.

Shakespeare’s Empire Striketh Back

As many of you know, I’m a big fan of Quirk Books. For those of you who are following the Shakespeare Star Wars series, here is a look at the Empire Striketh Back cover.


This title should be available after the ides of March (March 18th) with Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return available July 1st.

Naked story-telling evenings prove a hit in the UK

When can I expect the Florida version???

The event involves a group of women reading aloud from themed books, poems and novels, entirely in the nude

The event involves a group of women reading aloud from themed books, poems and novels, entirely in the nude

‘One of the funniest times was when I was reading a  book of scary urban legends at our Scary Stories show – the legends were so ridiculous, I couldn’t stop laughing and the audience had the giggles too. Our fans often write in requesting themes which we take on board. And no, the audience are not naked, only the performers are.’


A good book and an attractive naked woman, sounds like Heaven to me …

Review: Stabilo Move Easy Left Handed Blue Pen

Stabilo Move Easy Left Handed Blue Pen

As a lefty, one of my earliest penmanship classes (yes, I am that old) ended with my teacher taking my pen away from me in frustration and sending me to the bathroom to wash my ink-stained hand. It was a constant battle for elbow space with my right handed classmates at the classroom table which caused me to contort my arm into a position that would have made a Yogi envious. As the years rolled by, I twisted my arm to conform to the right handed student desks and spiral notebooks. Having said that, it was always the pens that betrayed me at the most crucial moment. A lefty pushes a pen while a righty pulls the pen and some pens can’t handle a lefty.

That’s why I really liked the Stabilo Move Easy Left Handed Pen. It gives you a natural fit, reduces the fatigue in the arm, shoulder, and hand. Of course, the most important part is that with such and unusual look you can easily spot when a righty is walking off with your pen.

Stabilo Move Easy Left Handed Blue Pen with Refills Left-handed Pen

I highly recommend it and give it a big thumbs up!

Real Mythology?

For those of you who dig the Disney Princesses, you should expect to get a new one in 2018 with the unfortunate name of Moana (not to be confused with the Italian porn star of the same name). In this case, the name is a Polynesian word for “deep water.”

Yes, this Polynesian Princess will have a hankering for exploration in which she will meet “demi-gods and spirits taken from real mythology.”  Real mythology?

Maybe they can work in Lilo and Stitch?
