Venom Wars of the Desert Realm

The dark side is made up mostly of reptiles and flying bugs. The side of the light is populated by birds, mammals, and some of the crawling insects. Our heroes are three courageous hares, young brothers who lost their parents years earlier. … Continue reading Venom Wars of the Desert Realm

The Many HOPES of Christmas

by Scott Cahan, ….  Everyone, it seems, loves Christmas. Sure, there are some modern-day Scrooges who have their reasons for not liking Christmas, but the majority of us find something special to enjoy about Christmas time. I believe that something special is a little word with a big meaning … hope. I have observed that practically everyone, young and old, finds something to hope in during the holiday season that lifts their spirits and gives them something to celebrate. This includes Christians, people of other faiths, people who don’t know what they believe, and even people who claim to be atheists. This … Continue reading The Many HOPES of Christmas

Driven To The Hilt – Book Review

Driven to the Hilt: The Deepest Cut by D.G. Lamb is one of the most original and well-told stories I’ve ever read. First-time author D.G. Lamb has established himself as a new talent in young adult novels with this first effort. At its core, this is a survival tale that reminded me a little of other great books like The Martian and Swiss Family Robinson. Driven to the Hilt, however, took  the basic concept of man vs. nature in a totally original direction. The story takes place in a colony of Earth on another planet in the not-too-distant-future. An eleven-year-old … Continue reading Driven To The Hilt – Book Review

The Crown – Season 1

Finding a television series that my family and I can watch together and actually enjoy together has always been a challenge. My girls are in their young teens which makes it a little bit easier since they now have more mature tastes in programming. My wife likes a good love story and nothing with suspense. Me, I’m not hard to please. I enjoy seeing any movie or TV show that is well written and produced. The four of us have spent many evenings browsing the Netflix listings looking for something to watch together. Many times, those evenings end in disappointment … Continue reading The Crown – Season 1

Space Drifters – Book Review

The Emerald Enigma by Paul Regnier is the first story in the Space Drifter series and is a rare blend of outer space heroics and slapstick comedy. An odd but fun assortment of characters make up the crew of the star ship that serves as the main setting of the story. Captain Glint is the wise-cracking hero who is obsessed with obtaining the Emerald Enigma. His first officer is a reptilian alien creature named Blix, who serves Glint well with his superior intelligence and strength. He’s also the perfect straight man for Captain Glint’s jokes. A beautiful warrior/princess named Jassette and a time-traveling boy … Continue reading Space Drifters – Book Review
