Book Review: Little Heaven by Nick Cutter


Little Heaven is the latest, and perhaps greatest, horror novel from the mind of Nick Cutter. Like many readers, my first encounter with Nick’s work was with his fantastic debut, The Troop. Even having finished that novel a good four months ago, scenes from it still bubble up from my memory from time to time …

Book Review: Death Follows by Cullen Bunn

Death Follows is unapologetically dark. Based on the title and cover art, I expected this, but it even surprised me. Having never read Mr. Bunn’s work before (this graphic novel is based upon a short story), I went into the tale not knowing what to expect. I left feeling unsettled because of it, so I’ll …

Book Review: The Facts in the Case of the Departure of Miss Finch by Neil Gaiman


The Facts in the Case of the Departure of Miss Finch is an adaptation of a Neil Gaiman short story, first published in comic form in 2008. At the time of its release, I, sadly, had not yet discovered Mr. Gaiman. In the years since then, he has become one of my favorite authors in …

Book Review: Paleo – The Complete Collection by Jim Lawson


I went into Paleo with high hopes due to the author, Jim Lawson’s, pedigree. I didn’t quite what to expect, however, because the concept was rather hard to wrap my head around. A three hundred page graphic novel focusing on real-life dinosaurs. No anthropomorphizing them. No applying human thoughts or attributes, or breaking from the …

New Content Incoming

Hi All, Just a brief update to let you know, again, that most of my games writing can now be found at, though I will continue to try to update here as well. In the meantime, I will be posting more book/graphic novel reviews. As you may know, I’ve been reviewing games and other …

Book Review: Martian Manhunter: The Epiphany


I had never read Martian Manhunter before, so I was hesitant about picking this book up. I’m glad I did. Without any background going in, The Epiphany does a good job of introducing J’onn J’onnz, the titular Manhunter, who he is and what he stands for. This would be a typical superhero introduction if not …

Steam Link/Controller – The Couch MMO Solution?


Oh, hello there! It’s been a while! No, I’m not dead or lost, just inundated with work and parenting (like many of you!). That said, there’s always time for a game or two, right? Which brings me to this point: It’s hard to play MMOs with little kids in the house! These days, I find …

#NBI2015: How Did GamerGate Affect Me?


It’s May and that means it’s time for another Newbie Blogger Initiative. I probably wouldn’t have participated since I’m far from new to games blogging but Belghast of Tales of the Aggronaut convinced me on his latest AggroChat podcast. The call, as he put it, was also to blogger who may have stopped blogging, and …

ESO: Do It Right the First Time


I’ve been thinking a lot about Elder Scrolls Online lately. Ever since my post about Keeping Up With the Joneses, I’ve been hovering over the purchase button. Well it’s a good thing I didn’t! Out of the blue, I received an email from the Zenimax notifying me I had “purchased the game” and reminding me …

ArcheAge: This Generation’s Vanguard (In a Good Way!)

Giving my little cub a bath... before it turns into my mount!

I’ve been struggling to articulate why I find ArcheAge so compelling since I first began hearing about it. I described it many times in the past, talking about its many systems or how it supported the virtual world concept. Now that I have my hands on it, I think I’ve come to a conclusion about …
