Apologies

Sorry for the lack of reviews and for the lack of comment moderation lately. I’ve been and remain unfortunately, badly ill and cannot for the moment tell when I’ll be back in the swing of things. Since basically everyone I know on the internet has access to this one way or another, I’m putting it…


Baltimore Comic Con recap!

So, last weekend was Baltimore Comic Con! I was there helping my sister at her booth. Had a pretty good time, spent money I probably shouldn’t have and in general enjoyed soaking in all the geekiness.


Play me a sad song

I don’t talk much about music. It’s just there, an ever-present but, since college, unremarked upon thing. But as I was driving home from work on Friday, I realized that when it comes to songs that actually impact me, most of them are songs which portray negative emotions. I’m not sure what it is. I…


Riddle me this

I occasionally hear people asking in the various writing circles I frequent, “what’s the best way to write a character who’s smarter than you?” Since most of my characters are my brain level or below, it’s not something I’ve had to personally wrestle with too much, but this weekend I ran into a kissing cousin…

A question of character

Games backlog: That Miles Edgeworth game

For some reason, losing my job gave me a burning desire to play the first Ace Attorney game again. And once I finished it (all but the bonus case, because that one just makes me too unhappy), I decided to give Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth another shot.   To be clear, I love the…


Reviews marked “Postdated”

If you poke through, you may see the tag “postdated” attached to some of my reviews. Those are ones that I posted to my Booklikes before this website was created. I have posted them here with their original Booklikes publication dates. Just wanted to let y’all know!
