Exile: The Book of Ever by James Cormier

Evil Toad Press, The Price of Desire, The Demon of Darkling Reach, and More

In a bit of shameless self-promotion, I wanted to introduce you to Evil Toad Press, an indie publishing house that I'm involved in.  We offer a la carte self-publishing services (substantive editing, copy editing, ebook conversion and formatting, cover design, marketing services, etc.) as well as publish a small group of emerging authors under our own imprint.  Our current catalog features primarily science fiction and fantasy.  Here are a couple of titles (including one of my own) that might be … [Read more...]

The Walking Dead - Episode 13 - Beside the Dying Fire

The Walking Dead: ‘Beside the Dying Fire’: Season 2 Finale

The Walking Dead Season 2 finale, much like the season as a whole, was full of slow character-driven scenes scattered with occasional bouts of action.  The good parts are very good, but the characters in this show, as I've said before, do a lot more talking than doing. The final destruction of Hershel's farm was vivid and entertaining, and the loss of a couple of extraneous characters made it impactful.  The real season finale, however, was Episode 12, in which Shane meets his end, not this … [Read more...]

Details on New ‘Doom’ from id Software

IGN has a video up with a few details on the new Doom, a reboot of the classic PC game, that were released by id at QuakeCon today.  The video itself is below, but here are the main talking points: This isn't Doom 4, it's a reboot It's an old school nod to the original No health regeneration Double jumping Graphic violence No reloading Classic weapons Return of the Cyberdemon Original Doom team not involved http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRNW-Pmey0Y … [Read more...]

Bear McCreary Has a YouTube Channel!

Any Battlestar Galactica fan worth her salt knows who Bear McCreary is.  He composed all of the original music for the show, is currently working on AMC's hit show The Walking Dead, and is easily the most interesting composer working in television today.  Despite owning the BSG soundtrack albums and loving his music, I'd managed to miss the fact that Mr. McCreary has his own YouTube channel, which he updates regularly.  Around six months ago he started posting solo piano performances of his BSG … [Read more...]

Fantastical Travel Posters

There have been a slew of travel posters inspired by fictional places from science fiction and fantasy universes popping up online lately.  The first ones I remember seeing were these Middle Earth posters. More recently, an artist named Kevin Cook created a set of posters inspired by George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, which have a more modern aesthetic and are available here. Yesterday, io9 reported the release of a trio of Dune-inspired travel posters, which may be the … [Read more...]

Toronto Batman Needs Help with His Slim Jim

This is awesome in so many ways it eludes summarization.  SeanWard.net put a guy in a Batman suit and sent him out into the streets of Toronto, originally with the intention of making a "Shit Batman Says" video.  It became more of a social phenomenon.  Watch and learn and watch again.  WHERE ARE THEY?!?   Via io9. … [Read more...]
