Slaying the Dragon: A Secret History of Dungeons & Dragons – Ben Riggs

It’s very rare that I pick up a new book on release day. It’s even rarer for me to read through it in less than forty-eight hours. But that’s exactly what happened with Slaying the Dragon by Ben Riggs. Now, I will go on record and say up front, this is not a book for everyone. The subtitle reads “A...

The Dead Zone – Stephen King

  I feel sort of bad for pushing all my other books aside to go on a Stephen King binge. But honestly, I can’t say I really regret it. His novels are nothing short of addicting. Today, I’m going to focus on the fan-favorite The Dead Zone. As a teenager, I read a number of King’s earliest works. But this...

The Stand – Stephen King

I know I typically save my Stephen King book reviews for the month of October. But last month, like so many other people, I found myself diagnosed with Covid-19. Thankfully, it was only the mild Omicron variant, so I recovered rather quickly. But still, it got me thinking about just how quickly Covid spread across the globe. It started out...

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Black Spire – Delilah S. Dawson

The last time I reviewed a Star Wars novel it didn’t go very well. The book in question was A Crash of Fate. This was a novel created for the sole purpose of drumming up hype for Disney’s new Galaxy’s Edge theme park. The story itself wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t particularly good either. In the end, the book appeared...

Dungeons & Dragons: Strixhaven – A Curriculum of Chaos

In what is likely to be my final post for 2021, I’m going to end the year with a review of the latest Dungeons & Dragons supplement Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos. At first glance, some players may be quick to assume that this book is just another attempt by WotC to shoehorn in more material from Magic: The Gathering...

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – A Crash of Fate – Zoraida Cordova

When Disney originally announced the reboot of the Star Wars Expanded Universe project, fans were excited. The promise we heard was that all future Star Wars novels would be vetted for quality and every release would be canonical. This was good news because as any old school Star Wars fan will tell you, there was more than a few stinkers...

Night Shift – Stephen King

It has become a tradition of mine to read and review a Stephen King novel each year for Halloween. I started this tradition by reading King’s first novel, Carrie. From there, I progressed through each of his books chronologically by date of publication. The last review was for Rage, a novel written under the pseudonym of Richard Bachman. At this...

Star Wars: Thrawn – Treason – Timothy Zahn

Love him or hate him, it cannot be argued that Grand Admiral Thrawn has proven to be an extremely popular character in the Star Wars universe. And since his reintroduction to the new canon, his popularity has only increased. Today I’ll be taking a look at the third book in Timothy Zahn’s new Thrawn series, Thrawn: Treason.ย Before I get started,...
