Personal Quote: *We* are the music makers... and *we* are the dreamers of dreams. — Willy Wonka

“If the first volume took some deliberate pacing steps to build Pandora’s character, this volume eschews that as it thunders along at breakneck speed, barely pausing for breath at any given time (and, I must say, the volume was devoured at speed as well).… I thoroughly enjoyed this volume.”

For those of you who might be unfamiliar with this project, The Saga of Pandora Zwieback is my young adult, dark-urban-fantasy novel series, starring a 16-year-old Goth girl who’s spent the last decade being treated for mental health problems because she can see monsters. It’s only after she meets a shape-shifting monster hunter named Sebastienne “Annie” Mazarin that Pan discovers she’s never been ill—her so-called “monstervision” is actually a supernatural gift that allows her to see into Gothopolis, the not-so-mythical shadow world that exists right alongside the human world.

Blood Feud: The Saga of Pandora Zwieback, Book 1 is the beginning of Pan’s story, explaining how she, her parents, and her friends, are drawn into a conflict among warring vampire clans searching for the key to an ultimate weapon (or so the legend goes)—a key that just so happens to have been delivered to the horror-themed museum owned by Pan’s father. It’s a character-driven action-fest that leads immediately into the second novel:

Blood Reign: The Saga of Pandora Zwieback, Book 2: Pan faces even greater challenges as the clans draw up plans to go to war with humanity. Leading the charge is a fallen angel named Zaqiel, whose previous attempt at subjugating the world was stopped by Pan’s monster-hunting mentor, Annie—who, back in the day, was Zaqiel’s lover!

SALEM (WGN America): Nice to see the season 2 opener was just as crazy as the entirety of last season. Keep it coming!

INTERSTELLAR: Finally got to see it. Decent but slow start, but "love conquers all" suddenly trumps the science you spent all the time setting up? Meh.
Mon Apr 6, 2015, 5:25 AM
INTO THE STORM: Finally saw it on HBO. How'd something that looks and feels like a generic SyFy Channel crapfest get movie theater distribution? So bad...

I, ZOMBIE (CW): Having never read the Vertigo comic or watched "Veronica Mars," I have to say I really enjoyed the pilot and look forward to the rest of the new series. Recommended.

KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE (20th Century Fox): The action sequences, as ludicrous and bloody as they are, are the highlight of this adaptation of the Mark Millar/Dave Gibbons comic. The plot? Not so much. But I did enjoy Colin Firth kicking major ass.

BETTER CALL SAUL (AMC): Who knew that "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan could hit another home run his next time at bat, or that comedian Bob Odenkirk could make such a compelling lead? Highly recommended.

Today in WTF News: So CBS's upcoming SUPERGIRL series pilot is making her first villain...a super-powered lumberjack?! Way to lower expectations, folks...

EDGE OF TOMORROW: Finally got around to seeing it, and enjoyed it. The ending's a little "Whaaaat?" but Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt make the movie an enjoyable ride. Recommended.

20 FEET FROM STARDOM (Gil Friesen Prod.): Interesting documentary about backup singers, but not as good as the doc STANDING IN THE SHADOWS OF MOTOWN, about the Funk Bros.
Sun Jan 11, 2015, 8:45 AM
THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS (Orbit): A great, unique zombie novel by M. R. Carey (aka Mike Carey, former writer of DC's Hellblazer). Recommended—go track down a copy and give it a read!
