Riverdale Recap and Review – Season 1 – Episode 4, by Andrew Buckley
Let me start by explaining the relationship I have with Archie comics. I lived in the UK until I was 17. Archie comics didn’t exist over there. But I visited Canada with my family several times between ages 8 and 13 and was spellbound by these thick comic books being sold at the end of […]
This Blog Title Intentionally Not Funny, by Robert J Defendi writing as Bob Defendi
So. This week we held Life, the Universe, and Everything (LTUE), the academic symposium for science fiction and fantasy writers. We laughed. We cried. There was likely a knife fight over Keynesian Economics. I’m not sure, I was in the Green Room singing Hamilton, insinuating that the movie The Accountant was based on the life […]

What My OTPs Taught Me To Look For In Relationships, by Astrid Kaniele

Regardless of the amount of OTPs I’ve collected through the seasons and trilogies, there’s some things […]
Four Amazing Families in Fantasy and Science Fiction., by Matt Weber
If you read my last post, you might have picked up a subtle hint or two that the big relationships in my life, right now, are family relationships. This isn’t to scant my relationship with my wife, or my friendships, but kids from 0-5 have many needs and few means with which to meet them […]

My Top Ten OTPs

February 18, 2017
By Lauren
So, with February come Valentine’s Day and although I am not the biggest fan of this day, it does make me think about my OTPs. I have come up with a top 10 and trust me this was not easy to compile as I have so many OTPs. I have picked ships from TV, movies […]
Matchmaking That Matters, by Benjamin Sperduto
I’ve got to be honest: romance doesn’t come easy for me. Nothing makes me squirm more than writing an intimate scene between two characters. I found this out the hard way when I took my first stab at writing a book way back in high school (by hand, of course, in one of those little […]
Nine Great Relationships in Fantasy and Why They Work, by Vicki Stiefel
Great fantasy relationships—oh, how I swoon over them. I thought I’d start with Adam and Eve. They were nuts about each other. Except… Yeah, not a HEA. So I turned to Odysseus and Penelope. Talk about an alpha male and a smart woman. They worked for me, and the Greek myths are chock-full of romantic […]
