Today and yesterday I read no less than three stories by T. Kingfisher aka Ursula Vernon who wrote Jackalope Wives. I started by reading The Dryad’s Shoe in Women Destroy Fantasy and loved it. I of course had to search out other works by her and it turned out that she wrote the novella Nine Goblins, which I discovered. I liked that one enough to keep going and read the first story of Toad Words and Other Stories, Toad Words, right away. I thought I would put my reviews of all her stories I read this week in the same post, or it will become a bit messy – I think.
After trying a stack of different doughs for pizza I have settled on using one that I got from one of my friend. The edges crisp up, the bottom of the pizza is crispy rather than doughy and it taste good – and bonus the topping does not drop though the pizza! Now that is good pizza dough.
Sorry for the bad picture, I keep forgetting to take one in the kitchen because I just want to eat the darn thing.
Because of my enjoyment of last year’s challenge 100 Short Stories in 2014 I decided to do the same challenge this year. Learning from last year I decided to set up the stats post right away, so I don’t have to go back halfway through the year and catalog 50 stories. This is one of those post that is mostly for my own amusement, but if you want to take a look, you are very welcome. I will link to my reviews of the stories so hopefully it can serve as an inspiration list as well.
I just got the second issue of Uncanny in my inbox last night, when I woke up this morning I read the first story in it. I think I will probably end up reading most of them, so I might as well gather all my reviews in one place.
I have been reading a lot of comics in 2014 and I thought it might be fun to take a look at my current pull list. I read comics though Comixology and though the Marvel Unlimited app. I do mostly read Marvel comics but some image and DC ones sneaks in as well.
At any given time I am following quite a number of series, that of course means that I am looking forward to a number of books coming out next year. I am also looking forward to a few collections and some standalone books. Lets take a look at the list:
