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

Epic Reads Book Tag

Hi everyone, it’s time for another thrilling book tag! It’s the Epic Reads tag, which I found on Maxxesbooktopia. I didn’t see any rules, so it’s just a quick set of questions and answers, most of which turned out to be very thought-provoking and/or difficult to pin down. 1) If you could invite one author and…… Continue reading Epic Reads Book Tag

Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes (Classics Club)

I’ve decided to start a Classics Club list! You can read more about the challenge and see my list of titles here, but the short version is that I’ll be posting on a classic book about once a month. These probably won’t be reviews in my usual style, because that’s not so helpful with a…… Continue reading Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes (Classics Club)
