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.

Book Review: The Weeping Sigil by Jordan Loyal Short

You may remember that earlier this year, we brought you a review of the first book in Jordan Loyal Short’s Dreadound Ode series, The Skald’s Black Verse (you can see that here), and also helped with a cover reveal of the second book, The Weeping Sigil (seen here). 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.

Storytellers on Tour: The Story of Evil ? A Hero?s Downfall by Tony Johnson

When it comes to finding a new book to read – particularly in the realm of fantasy – it will boil down to a few buckets for me. First is from a series or author that I already enjoy, and am awaiting the next installment. Second, will be something new that gives a twist on some familiar elements in medieval fantasy (say, Brian McClellan’s Powder Mages). While I didn’t know it going into it, The Story of Evil ? A Hero?s Downfall by Tony Johnson offers that second category.
