The Stormlight Archive – World of Roshar

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Brandon Sanderson, and I especially love the books of the Cosmere “super-epic” which includes the epic series of Mistborn and the Stormlight Archive (among others). The world-building, characters, and magic systems of these series are nothing less than astounding. But sometimes it’s...

DUNE First Trailer

The first trailer for the upcoming Dune movie has just been released. Unlike the 1984 movie adaptation by David Lynch, this new adaptation promises to be truer to the book (i.e., no ridiculous voice-powered sonic weapons…). Judging from what I’ve seen in this trailer, it is indeed much truer to...

An Honorable Mention to DragonCon

Well, DragonCon 2020 is canceled this year, due to COVID-19, apart from some virtual convention events that you can see here. I thought it might be a good time to put up this old CollegeHumor “Cosplay Catastrophe” video. Yes, it’s about Comic-Con, but if you’ve ever been to DragonCon, then...
