Star Wars: Thrawn – Treason – Timothy Zahn

Star Wars: Alphabet Squadron – Alexander Freed

Since the formation of the new canon, Lucasfilm has kept a pretty tight lid on the events that take place between the original trilogy and the sequel trilogy era.

Rage – Stephen King (as Richard Bachman)

It’s October! That means it’s time for my annual Stephen King book review. In keeping with my tradition of reviewing King’s books in chronological order, I find myself at an interesting point. So far, I’ve reviewed Carrie, ‘Salem’s Lot, and The Shining – the first three books authored by Stephen King. The next book released under the ‘Stephen King’ name...

Dungeons & Dragons: Mythic Odysseys of Theros

It’s been a few months since I’ve made a Dungeons & Dragons related post. But I’m back today to discuss one of the latest D&D releases, The Mythic Odysseys of Theros. Now, this is a book that I wasn’t really sure about before I actualyl got my hands on it. The marketing materials that came out in advance of this...
