Villains are intriguing characters. I’ve always liked a well fleshed out villain, one that’s a little more than evil cackling and petting cats. Urban Enemies, edited by Joseph Nassise and released August 1, 2017, is a book that definitely scratches that itch.

I was pretty excited when I finally got my copy in this book. Binti by Nnedi Okorafor is a beautifully written, captivating novella that has won both the Nebula and Hugo awards. It’s been on my radar for quite some time, and, finally, I’ve gotten a chance to read it.

You’ve probably heard of this book, but what’s it about, exactly?

Timothy Zahn is a name I’ve heard often when speaking with friends about books. Half a shelf at my local library is dedicated to his work. Yet I’ve never picked up a single one of his books. Well, okay. I probably read one of the Star War’s novels he wrote, but I haven’t read any of those since my dad first sat me down and watched the original trilogy with me. Pawn’s Gambit: And Other Strategems is the first Timothy Zahn book I’ve read, or, at least, remember reading. And I wasn’t disappointed.

It’s Throwback Thursday once more. This week we read a short story by Neil Gaiman titled I, Cthulhu, or, What’s a Tentacle-Faced Thing Like Me Doing in a Sunken City Like This (Latitude 47° 9′ S, Longitude 126° 43′ W)? It’s a fun story with what is possibly the longest title that I ever have (and maybe ever will) come across.

But what, exactly, is it about?

It’s been quite some time since Doctor Who has aired, and the Christmas Special is still several weeks off. I, like many of you, have been completely Doctor Who starved these last months. But never fear! There’s something to tide us over until Christmas.

Doctor Who: The American Adventures released on October 25, 2016. And I have some mixed feelings about it.
