And lo ! the ice breaks as I look,
And living waters touch my feet.
Within the forest’s leafless shade
I hear a spring-bird’s hopeful lay.
–Jane Goodwin Austin (1831–94)
Just added “Song of the Ancients” by Sandy Wright to my Kindle collection.
What would you die for?
Samantha Danroe doesn’t believe in magic. Her ex-husband cured her of happily-ever-after when he cheated on her three days after saying I-do.
She doesn’t believe in ghosts. Until her mother’s ghost rises from a Halloween bonfire with a warning of death from beyond the grave.
And she certainly doesn’t believe in witchcraft. Until she becomes the prey in an ancient war waged between good and evil. A war whose rules she must scramble to learn to stay alive.
In need of protection, Samantha turns to the mysterious Nicholas Orenda, a sixth-generation witch on the trail of a creature who is systematically killing off his family. According to his family’s prophecy, three will be sacrificed to the dark. His mother and grandmother are already dead, and Nicholas doesn’t have time to play by the rules.
Samantha finds herself in the center of a deadly hunt for a mysterious foe. Can she find the strength to defeat a supernatural killer and prevent the third sacrifice? Or will she be the catalyst that opens the gates to the Underworld?
Song of the Ancients is the debut book in the Ancient Magic series.
Readers interested in witchcraft, shamanism–or just the dark side of the supernatural world around us–will enjoy this paranormal suspense, written by a real-life Wiccan High Priestess. Look for information on the next book in the Ancient Magic series in 2016.
Ms. Wright has been authentic to Witchcraft, blending in real spells and rituals throughout her tale. The landscape and its traditions are strong characters.”

I was joking around with a friend online and said that, “you can get anything and everything from Amazon.” Yes, that is an overstatement but *damn* Amazon has a lot of stuff. They even have a lot of Amazon branded items.
Since Christmas, I have been using an Amazon mouse. I don’t know why I go through so many mouses (mice? — no mouses). I don’t drop them and I only a casual gamer so you would think that they would work forever. But no — just no — a computer mouse has a limited lifespan in my hands. I don’t know why, it’s just one of those quirks of life. At any rate, my Sister and Nephew gave me a new mouse for Christmas — basic Amazon.
We are at the half-way point of February and the Amazon mouse has held up. I play Guild Wars 2 with it and do basic web surfing and computer use. My first experience with an Amazon branded item has been a positive one. Big thumbs up.

Damn, that was a fun read. Folks, this is a keeper. I want to thank Michael Molcher and 2000 AD for the free review copy.
The definitive history of the most influential British comic ever! Updated, expanded and revised for 2000 AD’s 40th anniversary.
From 2000 AD’s humble and rocky beginnings to its current position as the Galaxy’s Greatest comic, Thrill-Power Overload charts the incredible history of this ground-breaking comic. With exclusive interviews, hundreds of illustrations and rarely-seen artwork, former 2000 AD editor, David Bishop and journalist Karl Stock, guide the reader through four decades of action, adventure, excitement and the occasional editorial nightmare!
Told by the people who were there, this is the definitive history of the comic that launched a thousand talents including legends such as John Wagner, Pat Mills, Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Carlos Ezquerra, Brian Bolland, Dave Gibbons, Mick McMahon, Grant Morrison, Kevin O’Neill, Simon Bisley and continues with 21st Century breakthrough talents such as Jock, Rob Williams, Andy Diggle, Al Ewing, Henry Flint, Frazer Irving – and many many more.
Oh hell yes, I enjoyed every minute of this book. It gave me an inside look at some of the comics that I have followed over the years. In many ways it was a very nostalgic read. Of course, the art is fantastic. I’ve always enjoyed 2000 AD’s pen work.
I got a chuckle out of one of the quotes “2000 AD always sold 100,000 a week— no more, no less.Traditionally readers stop buying comics at thirteen, but our readers didn’t’ — Steve MacManus”. I was from a moving Military family and that age was about the time Dad retired and I was able to actually KEEP my comics. I didn’t quit at thirteen, I started anew.
My score … 5 stars out of 5. It’s a must-have.

Quite morning, even Peppy is unusually quite. The house smells of coffee, sausage, and waffles. Time for a good book.
