The Science of Sci-Fi: The Ultimate Lecture in Nerd Shit

I don't know if you've noticed, but I have a soft spot for sci-fi. Halo is one of the most important video game franchises in my life. Books like Ender's Game have been some of the most enjoyable reads I've ever had! In my youth, I was a huge sucker for series like Star Wars… Continue reading The Science of Sci-Fi: The Ultimate Lecture in Nerd Shit

Starsight: The Complexity of Space Wars

Don't worry. After this, I won't be talking about any Sanderson books for a few months. At least not until 'The Rhythm of War' comes out later this year. While I did have my criticisms, I ultimately did enjoy Skyward. It was an enjoyable bit of sci-fi with some strong characters and world-building. So, going… Continue reading Starsight: The Complexity of Space Wars

The Return of the King: End of a Masterpiece

At last. We come to the end. We've gone through Fellowship and Two Towers. Now, to talk about the legendary conclusion to the greatest fantasy series of all time. As a kid, The Return of the King was my favorite movie of all time. Granted, I had no sense of what was good and what… Continue reading The Return of the King: End of a Masterpiece

Terrible Cash-Grab Strategy Guides

This may be a bit of a brain-dead statement, but I feel it's worth saying anyway. Books are great! A great book can immediately pull you in, transporting you on a grand adventure! Two books can be extremely similar to one another, yet the different author's creative voices can make them feel completely unique! Literature… Continue reading Terrible Cash-Grab Strategy Guides

The Last Wish: Beginnings of a Witcher

Alright! Going back to the beginning! I know what I'm doing, I swear! The Last Wish is a very interesting take on the typical fantasy fare. Rather than just telling one long, multi-book spanning story, like we'll get with The Blood of Elves onward, it is a collection of smaller, complete stories. At the same… Continue reading The Last Wish: Beginnings of a Witcher

Caffeine: The Addiction You Didn’t Know You Had

Let me ask you something. How often do you think about what you're drinking? Are you the kind of person who plans out every detail of their diet for the healthiest possible lifestyle? Or are you the type to drink whatever it is that's there to drink? Are you a believer that water is the… Continue reading Caffeine: The Addiction You Didn’t Know You Had

The Two Towers: The One Everyone Forgets

Why is it that people just can't seem to remember this one? Whenever someone brings up Lord of the Rings, they always talk about Fellowship of the Ring or Return of the King. People seem to forget that Two Towers was just as good! In many ways, I'd say that it's better than its peers!… Continue reading The Two Towers: The One Everyone Forgets
