Aristoi by Walter Jon Williams

‘Aristoi’ Is Williams’s ‘Best’

Walter Jon Williams is nothing if not a visionary worldbuilder, and the world of Aristoi is him at his best.  I really dig on unique science fiction novels, the kind where the author clearly let his imagination run wild with how the future might turn out, then figured out how to make it logical.  It’s […]

Batman-Arkham-City

I Am Batman (In Arkham City, at Least)

Batman: Arkham City is the best video game I’ve played in recent memory.  Mass Effect 2 and Portal 2 are close contenders, but Arkham City still takes the top spot.  I don’t think I’ve been quite as enthralled by a game since Half-Life 2 came out.  They’ve captured the spirit of Batman perfectly, distilling the […]

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 […]

In a recent interview with SmarterTravel.com, George Martin described the plot of the beginning of the sixth novel in his A Song of Ice and Fire series, The Winds of Winter: ST: One of the dominant themes in the first five books, in fact probably the tagline for the whole series so far, has been […]

Do We Know the Plot of Iron Man 3 Already?

Latino Review and io9 think they do, anyway.  It seems like there may be hints pointing towards Iron Man 3 involving elements from the Extremis story arc. http://latinoreview.springboardplatform.com/mediaplayer/springboard/video/ltrv001/955/454845/

Metropolitan by Walter Jon Williams

‘Metropolitan’ by Walter Jon Williams

I discovered Metropolitan completely unexpectedly while browsing the (somewhat sparse) science fiction and fantasy section at my local public library.  I had heard of Walter Jon Williams, but had never read any of his work.  After reading the jacket copy and deciding that this book seemed written just for me, I borrowed it.  What followed […]

Men In Black 3 Trailer #2

‘The Dark Court’

Ashsilverlock has a great essay up on Fabulous Realms about The Dark Court, AKA the mythology of dark elves. An excerpt: Dark Elves have actually been around in mythology almost as long as Elves themselves – Celtic folklore in particular is full of tales of the Dark or Unseelie Court, causing mischief and mayhem for […]
