…when you watch the first two minutes of Tomorrow Never Dies, where Christopher Bowen and a fifteen-year-old Gerard Butler play Navy men, and then you turn it off because the interesting part is over. (What? Bowen was in Cold Comfort Farm! He has heavenly teeth! CCF 4ever, you guys, no joke.)… Read more »
So over at I’m asking the big questions about which YA vamp books are going to get snapped up, after Twilight’s ridiculous success and the quiet acquisition of the “House of Night” series’ movie rights. You know which one I really wish they would make? A Wrinkle in Time: This One Does Not Suck. Because you guys, seriously, the version they put on TV was dreadful. I made it about halfway through. Maybe a third of the way. The casting of the kids was fine, even if it looked… Read more »

So I wrote Fantasy’s Guide to Holiday Fashion as a spoof of all those horrible “Here are the best dresses for the party scene!” articles you see everywhere at the end of the year. Hint: I don’t go to parties. I don’t want dresses for imaginary parties. Show me pleats or keep it moving!

Also, they chose end-of-year… Read more »
