    I think my approval of Holly as a character is helped by Will Patton's depiction of her in the audiobooks.

    It's the one thing about SubPress that dismays me - they sometimes change a traycase or book design halfway through a series. I like that they switch it up sometimes, and experiment with new...

    I've been rewatching Prime Suspect, a 30-year-old police drama starring Helen Mirren. A slow burn of a show with some clever red herrings, lots of great character interactions, and a pretty great...

    Dude, that Swan Song lettered. Solid novel and a *really* nice edition. SubPress did some very nice editions of McCammon's work, and SS was no exception.

    Well done, and congrats.

    I was born in the late sixties, so Tom Baker (1974-1981) was “my” Doctor growing up - although I saw a lot of Jon Pertwee episodes as well. David Tennant is my favourite of the new crop. So having...

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I can say why DCEU Superman hasn't worked for me.

    I was middling on Man of Steel and BvS - but not because of Cavill as Superman (Or Affleck, for that matter), but because of how his character was written. I would love to see Cavill in a more...

    I would think “substantial“ means “enough that you would question whether the seller is aware of the true value of the item they are selling“.

    Setting the if it bleeds case aside, as I agree I think it’s a slightly different situation.

    Edited to add ^2: Arrival was based on a short story by Ted Chiang.
