Lloyd Alexander Documentary

Just got this in the mail.  A DVD copy of Jared Crossley’s documentary on Lloyd Alexander. This was my reward for backing the kickstarter last year.  When I was a kid, in addition to The Hobbit and the Narnia books, Alexander’s Prydain stories were one of my first fantasy novel obsessions.  I have very clear […]

Chris Pratt: New Marvel Superhero!

Exciting news!  Chris Pratt has been cast as the lead in Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY movie.  This pleases me, because I’ve become a fan of him for his work on the sitcom Parks & Recreation, and I thought he was great and held his own up against Brad Pitt in MONEYBALL.  I haven’t seen ZERO […]

Time Travel featured in Star Trek Into Darkness

Episode 10 – TREK WARS
