7 School-Day Crazes We Miss

Alright, so your school probably wasn’t as grand as Hogwarts. Or as fun. What with the uniforms. Exams. Homework. There’s several reasons not to ever want to enter those dark halls again.

7 Stories With Shoddy Starts

Yeah, well, patience is a virtue Yoda. And I am not a virtuous man. See here’s the thing – I firmly believe that a storyteller must hook you from the very first line. Or scene. Or level. Whatever the case may be. Some storytellers apparently disagree however. As more and more frequently we see a […]

Star Wars: Aftermath: Life Debt Has Arrived!

Yes, this post is about Star Wars. More specifically, it’s about the new Star Wars novel that has just been released. But first, for the uninitiated, let me introduce the man behind the words – Chuck Wendig. I’ve been a big fan of Chuck’s for a while now. The man writes phenomenally good fiction. He […]
