This book is more of a museum catalog than an actual text. It covers the eponymous exhibit at the Oxford University Museum of the History of Science that was held October 2009-February 2010.
Calling it a catalog does do something of a disservice. There are no fewer than three introductory-type chapters that explain the phenomena and philosophy of Steampunk (in somewhat repetitive fashion, alas). After that there are individual chapters on each of the artists, along with some…Continue

For this round-up, I read five writing guides new to me. All of them were on how to write fiction, rather than nonfiction or other projects such as letters.http://allisonsbookbag.wordpress.com/2011/08/28/round-up-of-writing-guides-for-young-people/

Close Your Eyes
by Amanda Eyre Ward
If you love complex characters, vivid imagery, and dark, haunting secrets, Close Your Eyes will not disappoint. The book is Austin, Texas-based author Amanda Eyre Ward’s fifth. I’ve been a fan since her first novel, Sleep Toward Heaven, was released in 2003.
On her website, Ward shares that the idea behind Close Your Eyes began to form in 1989 after terror struck near her…

The Night Awakens is an anthology of shorts stories by different authors. They are well done, sprinkled with madness and love. Some are about a jealous lover who wants to kill, others about an overly protective friend who doesn’t want to be left without money. One is about a reporter who hates her job, and how her fear of the dark gives her boss an idea to commit a murder. The other is about an underpaid employee who is abused by his boss and how with a witch helps him get the upper…Continue

Please check out my book that I am writing in the link above.
I currently have a passion to write a book for girls that have low self-esteem, in unhealthy relationships, are trying to find their identities in guys, and have turned to drugs to numb their reality. I want to help them with what I have been through and let them know I completely understand and…Continue

TGIF my friends, how are you? Looking for batteries, flashlights, bottled water, candles, maybe a good book to curl up with while all the weather comes through? I am going to do something out of order here, not bad for a guy with OCD. Usually as you know I interview the author on my blogtalk show The G-ZONE and then put up the post; I am not doing so this time go figure. I will be interviewing this author, Natasha Deen , next Weds, so tune in for the fun. But I digress yet…Continue

Robert Orfali has a knack for breaking down huge topics into manageable parts, then explaining the constituent elements of these parts in minute detail, bringing in the end an understanding rarely articulated however certainly understood. How do you truly explain love? What are the common stages for grieving the loss of a loved one? What…Continue

I bought this journal for you for mother’s day. Sorry it’s late. I’m sitting at work writing this letter, listening to Holly as she sings along t her opera music. It’s funny how life is sometimes. I think about situations I am in and I can’t help but laugh. A year ago I would have never imagined myself working here.
I just finished reading Donald Millers book, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. His book was a little different from his others. It made me…Continue

While reading this amazing play, I remembered immediately the wonderful movie for Woody Allen "The Front" which was talking about the repression period in America for some writers who were Communist oriented ... The American government made a black list for those writers and strictly refrained them from writing. So they were issuing their books under pseudonyms... Miller was one of these writers Although he was denied, exactly like the lower…Continue

The title, let’s talk about that first. The new series by writing partners Angelique LaFontaine and Eddie Frantom is Thirty-1. The title of this installment, volume one, is Reckless. This is a new monthly series that they are doing through Trestle Press. The elements that they have in this series are a wide variety: paranormal, action, suspense, thriller, fantasy, and sci-fi. After first reading it, I just stared at my e-reader for a brief minute, thinking, “very cool”. “Reckless” gives us a…Continue

There are always two sides to every story….
Recently I adopted the mantra that every circumstance is an opportunity to think brilliantly. Why? Because wrong thinking makes way for negative behavior and I do not want my behavior to be negative. I have learned over the years and especially most recently that there is a reason the Bible tells us to take every thought captive. Our thoughts can advance us or hinder us. I have been taking a lot…
