Material Witness

25 März, 2010 (13:11) | Literature | By: pooq

This post is a review of the „The Detective Branch by Andrew Pepper“. And it begins interesting already with the first sentence: „One of the most fascinating aspects of Andrew Pepper’s series of Georgian/Victorian crime novels featuring Pyke (no first name), is the charting of the early days of modern policing in London.“. Well, I […]

Karen Knows Best

25 März, 2010 (12:33) | Literature, That is life | By: pooq

It’s two questions „Is Laurell K Hamilton Really Anita Blake?“ and „Isn’t Laurell K Hamilton just a little bit…strange?“. So if we answer both questions with „yes“ then by logical reasoning we would have to state that Anita Blake is a bit…strange? Laurell K Hamilton seems to compare her real live with that of her […]

Blue On Blue

Another „Oh, I haven’t postet here for quite a while“ blog post. But luckily it’s not just that statement only, but a hint to another article in which J.K. Rowling is accused of having stolen ideas from other authors. But in the opinion of the author of the blog the named examples in that articles […]

Fiction With Friction

25 März, 2010 (11:29) | Literature | By: pooq

The author had a conversation with his editor who asked for some kind of story. It had to be an erotic story which needed to contain the word or at least an association to the word „red“. Red in connection with romantic I suppose and not with communism. Well for some reason the author denied […]

MANtastic Fiction

Wow, that is a strange website too. After I dared to give worthy design tips in my last post here is another strange concept. Actually it is not the design but the the page concept. I did not inspect it properly (I don’t have that much that expertise in web design, so simply look for […]

Phylactery of Nightmares & Dreams

4 März, 2010 (22:27) | Health, Literature | By: pooq

„I’m Still Around“ the author announces after being away for about seven weeks. And his absence from his blog has not been because a general lack of time, a new work but for health reasons. Actually he even fell into a coma and describes the strange and partly nightmarish experiences he made in this time. […]

Zoe Whitten’s Blog

4 März, 2010 (22:09) | Literature | By: pooq

I don’t exactly know whether it is dark fiction or comedy, when you awake and find yourself somewhere else. Somebody is sleeping next to you, whos tail brushed against your cheek, which caused you waking up. Somebody called Leona. And obviously Leona is not a cat or something of the kind, as when you examine […]

Sand in the Gears

26 Februar, 2010 (19:18) | Literature | By: pooq

The author claimed to have assessed „the state of the Boy Scout Handbook after 100 years of revisions“ in the Wall Street Journal. But how or who in the byline mentioned that the author will have a book coming out this spring has not all all become clear to me. Is he himself the author […]
