At Childhood’s End

There are only two words to describe Sophie Aldred’s book, At Childhood’s End.
“AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! YES!”

Okay, with that having been said, let’s back up a bit. I don’t remember the last fiction book that I read. I read a steady stream of comics for Geekorama.net and RPG materials for TheRatHole.ca, so for fiction books, I tend to go for the audio versions. That way I can listen when I’m on the go. More pertinent than just having limited time, is that some health issues in recent years have made focusing to read a novel frustratingly difficult. That wasn’t an option for me this time, so I was a tad bit nervous about whether I’d be able to get through this book in the time I needed to be finished it...

Kickstarter/Indiegogo of the Week: Binge Watcher’s Guide to Doctor Who, Season 11

I got to do a cool thing this week, I was a guest on The Legend of the Traveling Tardis Radio Show. The format for the show was a stump-the-panelist style game. I was a bit worried about how I would do against undeniably more knowledgeable panelists. Heck, a regular panelist on the show is award-winning author Mackenzie Flohr. She is putting out a book series called The Binge Watcher’s Guide to Doctor Who. How do I stump someone like that!? You can listen to how badly I did this Saturday on numerous platforms, and watch the video version next Monday on TLOTT’s YouTube channel.

Thankfully, she wasn’t on the panel this week. I assume that was at least in part because she’s part of the Kickstarter campaign for the first book in the Binge Watcher’s Guide to Doctor Who, Season 11.

Grand Rapids Comic Con 2018

Grand Rapids Comic ConOnce again, Devos Hall played host to Grand Rapids Comic Con this year and once again, I was impressed. The weather was a bit ewww, but that didn’t stop people from coming out and enjoying all of the fun that the show had to offer. Let’s break it down:

The Good:

The show has continued to expand and while things weren’t always quite where I expected them to be, the staff (some wearing superhero capes!) that I spoke to were all friendly and willing to point me in the right direction.  Everyone seemed relaxed and happy to help, which, from experience, I can tell you isn’t always the case. I also appreciated most of the layout of the vendor floor...
