Review: Mort(e) by Robert Repino

Hey lemme tell you about Mort(e) by Robert Repino! It’s one of those you pick up for the concept: The “war with no name” has begun, with human extinction as its goal. The instigator of this war is the Colony, a race of intelligent ants who, for thousands of years, have been silently building an army that…… Continue reading Review: Mort(e) by Robert Repino

Review: Airborn by Kenneth Oppel

You may recall how much I loved the book Airman by Eoin Colfer back in May. The adventure, the embrace of science, the intense writing and journey the protagonist goes through. It was also one of the best audiobooks I’d heard. So, since then I’ve been looking for readalikes, and one of the first I selected…… Continue reading Review: Airborn by Kenneth Oppel

Review: Star Wars Disney Canon Graphic Novels

I’ve been a casual Star Wars fan forever. I happily admit that the original trilogy are some of the best movies ever made, but I found the sheer scope of the fandom and expanded universe much too daunting for me. Every so often I might try a novel here or there based on recommendations from…… Continue reading Review: Star Wars Disney Canon Graphic Novels

Review: Vulcan (Hidden Universe Travel Guides) by Dayton Ward

So there’s a travel guide for the planet Vulcan from Star Trek. As a hardcore Vulcan-obsessed Trekkie, of course I wanted to check it out. I didn’t have high hopes, I just expected it to be mildly amusing and nicely designed — it’s from Insight Editions, which publishes a lot of TV and film art…… Continue reading Review: Vulcan (Hidden Universe Travel Guides) by Dayton Ward

I Digitized Some Gay Pulp For You

The time has come, friends, to show you some of what I’ve been doing these two long years in graduate school. I can’t show you my actual thesis yet, because there’s a possibility of academic publication, but I’ve been in a public history and museum studies program and that means I’ve also done a public…… Continue reading I Digitized Some Gay Pulp For You

Review: Airman by Eoin Colfer

I never thought Eoin Colfer would be able to match the greatness of the Artemis Fowl series. I’d read one or two of his simpler books before Artemis and didn’t think they were that special, to be honest. But I just finished listening to Airman as an audiobook and y’all… it may be even better. In the…… Continue reading Review: Airman by Eoin Colfer

I’m Back, with Star Trek Comics!

I turned in my thesis essay and I’m back as promised with a new Star Trek post on Comparative Geeks: “I Loved Star Trek: The Original Series, Where Can I Get More Episodes?” It’s sort of a stealth review of a comic I really liked, with some extra recommendations for good measure. I’m defending my thesis at…… Continue reading I’m Back, with Star Trek Comics!

Re-Reading Childhood Favorites is Super Queer

I’ve been re-reading an increasing number of books this year, books from when I was very young that I don’t remember very well at all. I don’t usually re-read very much, but the more I read, the more they jog my memory and lead me to other books I used to love. As a disclaimer,…… Continue reading Re-Reading Childhood Favorites is Super Queer
