Girl of NightmaresThe Best, Worst, and BESTWORST Stephen King Adaptations

By Kendare Blake

A couple of months ago, a friend and I were talking about Stephen King adaptations (they were running Stephen King with Story Notes on AMC that week) and got to wondering exactly how many movies had been made from his work. We were able to name so many: Carrie, The Shining, The Stand, Cujo, Misery, The Tommyknockers, Hearts in Atlantis; we could go on and on.

EnergizedScarily Timely: A Q&A with Edward M. Lerner

By Edward M. Lerner

Edward M. Lerner discusses Energized, his newly released near-future, alternate-energy thriller.

Question: Energized has a very striking cover – but what is that thing in the foreground? Besides, apparently, big.

Stands a ShadowThe Wildness of My Head

By Col Buchanan

Like many lunatics, I enjoy time in the wilderness both physically and metaphorically. Without crowds of people around me I can relax and go at my own pace. By myself, I can appreciate what I’m doing and take things in fully, without that scratchy self-consciousness that follows the formerly shy for the rest of their lives. Alone, I can really be there and be me.

Black BottleRule the World with Math and Magic

By Anthony Huso

The Last Page came out two summers ago and I’m pleased that the second book in the duology, Black Bottle, will be available on shelves and e-readers this month. If you’ve been eager for a peek, you can read an excerpt from Black Bottle. The setting for the books is decidedly dark and brutal, with the characters each sheltering their own little flames of hope.
