The holidays are upon us and with it the eggnog guzzling, panicked shopping, and ugly sweatshirt wearing time of year. As I scroll through the most popular items to purchase, it comes as no surprise that Baby Yoda merchandise is in popular demand. (And, yes, I realize...

Recently I had the opportunity to spend a weekend at a writer's get together with both David Weber and Kevin J Anderson. Now I might get tarred and feathered for this one but I didn't grow up reading either one of them. I love and respect their works now but I cut my t...

There are plenty of spoilers below, so if you haven't finished the final season I'd steer clear.

I first discovered George R.R. Martin's trope-eradicating series back in the previous millennium. 1998 for anyone keeping track. There were three books out, and those books...

In the final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones, an online melee broke out about whether Arya Stark was a Mary Sue. And I don’t really care about that. Maybe she is, probably she isn’t. GoT isn’t my thing.
