    What Are You Reading Right Now?

    Finally got back to my reading this week. Last night I finished “White Jenna” by Jane Yolen, the second Great Alta book. I quite liked it, as it was a good conclusion to the story set up in the first book, “Sister Light, Sister Dark.” I enjoyed the contrast between the actual story the...

    What are you watching right now?

    To enjoy the day, and to get into a light mood for my upcoming writing projects, I watched three MST3K episodes today. This morning I watched #502, “Hercules,” in the afternoon #504, “Secret Agent Super Dragon,” and then this evening #508, “Operation Double 007.” The last two I missed when they...

    Sci-Fi Doctor Who (BBC)

    I’ve heard a few DW podcasters talk about having BritBox. I’m going to resubscribe soon. I know that Steven of Radio Free Skaro has talked about it, not just for DW, but in discovering/rediscovering The Sandbaggers, a gritty spy series from the late 70s (one I remember from back in the day). I...

    Sci-Fi Doctor Who (BBC)

    The new Doctor Who left Netflix in the US a few years ago and moved to Amazon Prime. Netflix has been allowing old series and movies to leave for some time now. They’ve been concentrating on their original programming. It’s possible that this is happening because Amazon wants to do the same, in...

    Earlier this evening I re-watched the MST3K episode “The Magic Voyage of Sinbad.” An odd film with some good riffing. The main character of the movie still isn’t Sinbad. 😀

    For what I don't own, I'm going through Club MST3K (Club MST3k). They have links to where the episodes are posted to YouTube or the Internet Archive. I am planning on buying a few more from Rifftrax sometime this year.

    What are you watching right now?

    I've decided, for fun and for my current project, that I'm going to try to re-watch episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000 that I haven't seen in ages. Yesterday evening I watched #407, "The Killer Shrews." There was just as much drinking as I remember, plus the slow plot and the dogs dressed...

    What Are You Reading Right Now?

    Over the past few days I re-read Expecting Someone Taller and Who's Afraid of Beowulf, both by Tom Holt. I read them when they first came out. I decided to re-read them to get into a good frame of mind for a project I've started. Both are light fantasy with classic myths meeting the modern...

    Yesterday I finished Embers of War by Gareth Powell. Good science fiction novel about atonement. Had a few interesting characters, including a sentient starship.

    Sci-Fi Tradecraft

    I have a new science fiction novel out: Tradecraft: Theft Central Station is a gathering place for the artists, merchants, and politicians of the Galactic League. Aliens come from all over the galaxy to exchange ideas and resolve disputes. On the minds of all at Central Station are attacks on...

    Yesterday I finished Sister Light, Sister Dark by Jane Yolen. I knew it was the first book in a trilogy, but I thought it might be a stand-alone that became a trilogy. It's not a stand-alone, but it is a good book and I plan to get to the other books sooner rather than later.

    What Are You Reading Right Now?

    Yesterday I finished reading Sorcery & Cecilia by Patricia Wrede & Caroline Stevermer. It was a delightful fantasy novel, told entirely in letters between two cousins. Quite a fun read. I was amazed to learn that the authors chose which cousin to write and that the book started out as a letter...

    What Are You Reading Right Now?

    Yesterday I finished The Bayern Agenda by Dan Moren. It's a space opera spy thriller that takes place in the same universe as his first book, The Caledonian Gambit. The new novel has a strong and twisty plot. I enjoyed the two viewpoint characters and the others they met along the way. I liked...

    What Are You Reading Right Now?

    Yesterday I finished Theodora Goss' collection Snow White Learns Witchcraft. It contains both poems and short stories. I really liked the short stories. There were interesting takes on fairy tales and folklore, and they featured interesting heroines. I'm not that much of a fan of poetry, but I...
