Fiction Friday – The Dragonslayer’s Sword

I met Resa Nelson at the Great New England Steampunk Exhibition a few weeks back.

Sitting at one table was Resa, smiling at people, engaging in casual conversation with ones who stopped. I […]

Nuance – The Art of Subtle Censorship in American Culture

I spent the day of 9-3-11 in Exeter, New Hampshire at their 3rd. Annual UFO Festival along with Illustrator X and The Dead Redhead. Yes, I know, kooks and octogenarians with tin foil hats, right?

As well you may ask, “Who was Michael Hart and of what importance was he to Fiction Friday?” Mike was the inventor of e-books, founder of Project Gutenberg and a self-professed “Copyfighter”. I have extolled Project Gutenberg many times. It has far reaching implications for electronic publishing and is an invaluable repository of what would […]

Apollo 18: A Review

At the start of the viral marketing campaign for Apollo 18, The Dome pointed out that found footage projects were a cheat in storytelling. While the marketing aspect plays a role in the overall experience of the film, I was curious to see if the film could hold it’s own as a space thriller.
