Let’s Talk About: Moffat’s Doctor Who

This’ll be a quick post with not a lot of structure. I’m trying to turn these “Let’s Talk About” pieces into looser articles where I don’t have to have a central point or something. Anyway this morning it hit me that my experience watching Steven Moffat’s three seasons of Doctor Who has been largely defined [...]

Challenge Accepted!

I followed the Twitter conversations about The 52 Review’s “Best Of” post (I think this was last month or the month before). That’s when I first saw the challenge: only read genre fiction books written by women in 2014. Since then I’ve been caught in a morass of indecision. I want to do it. I am going [...]

Why Don’t You Just Write Genre X?

This post is inspired by a short conversation I had with Robert Jackson Bennett on Twitter a couple of weeks ago. It went a little something like this: @robertjbennett My mom asked me if I ever wanted to write something like Nicholas Sparks and give up that science fiction stuff. — R.S. Hunter (@rshunter88) April [...]

Some of My Favorite Writing Music

Review: Murders, Bikers And A Meteor

A friend asked me to review K.J. Klimasz’s Murders, Bikers And A Meteor anthology as part of a blog tour. Knowing nothing else about the collection other than it had science fiction stories in it, I agreed to read it. Chances are if I had come across this collection on my own, I would not have finished [...]

Interview with “The Returners” author Mikey Neumann

Today, I have the privilege of interviewing Mikey Neumann, author of the serial novel The Returners, and Gearbox Software Chief Creative Champion. He’s a super cool dude, so I was excited when he agreed to answer my questions. I just finished Part One of Season One of The Returners two nights ago, and I can’t wait to dive into Part [...]

According to the publisher, In Situ is loaded with “science fiction stories featuring alien archeology, hidden mysteries, and things that are better off left buried. [...] These fifteen evocative science fiction stories will take [...]

Repost: When Mass Effect 3 and Doctor Who Collide

This is reposted with some minor adjustments from my gaming-related blog over at Destructoid, but I thought it was worth sharing here. The original article talks about how the interactivity offered by videogames made me feel in ways that books, TV, or movies couldn’t. There’s definitely something powerful at hand when you can take ideas [...]
