  • Justice League Movie Review

    After a successful Man of Steel, followed by a tepid Batman vs Superman—a generally dark and negative turn on the comic book alliance between the two giants—and then, most recently Suicide Squad and the successful Wonder Woman movie, Justice League was intended to cement the future of the DC superhero movies. Upcoming stand-alone films include […]

  • For the Price of Two Fortunes

    FOR THE PRICE OF TWO FORTUNES by William Gensburger The jerk, who had just entered the coffee shop before us, kept insisting that the door should be shut; a slight breeze was striking him on the back of the neck, and this greatly upset him. I felt like grabbing him by the collar and throwing […]

  • Creative Marketing with Andrew Hood

    [from Books ‘N Pieces Magazine, July 2017] Creative Marketing I met Andrew Hood (@andrewhoodtwtp) on Twitter. He’s from Sydney, Australia.

That said, life is often short and often cruel, […]

  • Sometimes I Scream When I Read….

    There is a promise made by the cover of a book. An exciting cover demands an exciting interior. And yet, quite frequently, as I examine the books that interest me, I find that the opening pages make me want to scream. “What is this crap?” Clichés, redundancies, wordy, yet unnecessary narrative that uses simplistic language; […]
