Geek Wisdom!
So, next week marks the release of Geek Wisdom, a snazzy little hardcover of geeky pop-culture quotes and the deeply philosophical life-changing wisdom behind them. As things turn out, I was deemed nerdy enough to be one of the contributors! (Everyone put away your Vox Communicators and try to contain your surprise.) And I’m in excellent company, alongside N.K.…
Snow White, Rose Acid
When news of the warring Snow Whites came out, I had mixed feelings. One of those feelings, as always when I hear about dark fairy-tale remakes, is regret that Snow White: A Tale of Terror (how have I not reviewed this yet?) was the right movie at the wrong time, and now it stars people from ’90s TV, which is awkward, casting-wise, and Sigourney Weaver was awesome, but I know “Sigourney Weaver was awesome in this movie that also has Monica Keena and Gil Bellows in it” is not a pitch that will convince a lot of people to take it seriously as an adaptation.…

Five Things You Should Know About “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2: Potterer”
This weekend, we reach the end of Harry Potter (for this month). Now, let’s talk about how the last car of this train rolled into the station, shall we? More vague spoilers than you can possibly imagine……
Geeking out, Geek’s Guide, and Readercon!
Three things make a post! 1. Alex Bledsoe was kind enough to ask me a few questions about Mechanique over at his blog, …from down in Lucky Town. I geek out around the point where he asks about the cover and interior art, both by the awesome Kiri Moth, and call out this piece of Elena as a particular favorite, because how could it not be?…
