Now Funding: Bowio Book Light

For as long as I can remember, being able to clearly read at night was always something of a challenge. Sure, you could have a lamp on, but you maybe don’t want to do that. Used to be that I’d use a headlamp (and still do, sometimes), and then went to a Nook Color, and now these days find myself reading on a Kindle Paperwhite. If you want to read good ol’ physical books, though, the Bowio looks to be an interesting option.

Storytellers on Tour: How LJ and Rom Saved Heavy Metal

I, for one, am all for digging into a meaty, hefty tome of, say, epic fantasy or wide-ranging space opera. At least, I was able to easily consume those back in the days where I commuted by train. Nowadays, while I still try to get into those doorstoppers, it takes a lot longer. So, that’s where things that I consider the “pulp paperback” stories come into play – and that’s where I classify How LJ and Rom Saved Heavy Metal by S.D. McKinley.

Cover Reveal: Stones of Light

One of the more fun things I got involved with in 2020 (and continues on now) is Storytellers on Tour. Through it, I’ve been exposed to some great authors and stories, and have been able to tell you about them. Today, it’s a simple cover reveal – but if you recall the days of bookstores, the cover is more than half the battle.

I’ve just recently wrapped up my time with an ARC of The Weeping Sigil, and I’ll tell you what you’ve got in store.

Storytellers on Tour: The Skald’s Black Verse

Over some past iterations of our stop of the Storytellers on Tour series (which you can see here, here, and here) I’ve gotten a chance to read – and then tell you about – some very interesting books. Not that long ago I took part in a cover reveal for The Skald’s Black Verse, and was curious about the book. Given the opportunity to read it, well, I leapt at that chance.

The Oaxis Inkcase i7 is no uni-tasker

You can blame that headline on all my watching of Alton Brown – why have a uni-tasker when you can have a multi-tasking device? Of course, for a phone case, so long as it keeps your expensive pocket computer safe, that’s the main thing. With the Oaxis Inkcase i7, that’s not all it has to be limited to, though.

Stuff We Like: Calibre e-book Manager

Welcome to the start of something, a brand-new series we’re entitling “Stuff We Like”. Sure, we’ll have all manner of things we’ll tell you about that is new and interesting, but “Stuff We Like” will be reserved for the pieces of kit (and in this case, software) that we’ve been using for years and recommend without hesitation. Today, it’s the Calibre e-book Manager software in the spotlight.
