    Lucifer- loosely based on The Sandman by Gaiman

    I have no idea how loosely or otherwise the show is based on the comics because I haven't read the comics. I do however watch the show and love it! Maybe it's the british accent, the attractive lead characters and the dry humour of Lucifer, but I just love the premise too! Anyone else...

    Where are fantasy tropes in our real life?

    I thought about these as I was driving to a new place today. You know how super old characters (hundreds to thousands) in books always are really rich? All the really old characters in the 3 books I've read of the Iron Druid series are very wealthy. My thought was, no wonder it's accepted as...

    The Dinosaur Lords - Chapter 1 and 2

    I am reading the first chapter and all I can think is ' ahh it hurts my eyes" so much infodumping and new names and he fact that there is a battle of dinosaurs raging down below these two men seems to be inconsequential. Then we have have more names, more infordumping and at the end of Chapter 2...
