Book Review: Welcome To Crash by Lina Langley

No doubt the M/M romance fascists will get their panties in a knot over this one, featuring as it does a man caught between two lovers, a scenario in which the ending will always be bittersweet.

Book Review: The Stark Divide by J. Scott Coatsworth

The author gifted an ARC of this novel for an honest and fair review. Publication date October 2017. Sci-fi can be a little po-faced at times, or quirky to the point of artifice.

10 minute read – Full Moon To Manhattan (featuring Christopher Walken as Angel Gabriel)

Last year, I took part in WROTE Podcast’s Twelve Days Of Stories, a fantastic audio anthology of terrific authors and past guests of WROTE, who all came together to create a wide variety of short stories, all with a (sort of…) Christmas theme. This was ably voiced by Vance Bastian, whose dulcet tones can be heardContinue reading “10 minute read – Full Moon To Manhattan (featuring Christopher Walken as Angel Gabriel)”
