LORD OF LIGHT - Roger Zelazny (1967)

It’s simple: if you like Banks’ Culture novels, you’ll like this one. It’s not the best Culture novel – that’s Excession – but it’s still excellent. 66 more words


Album Review: Spelljammer - "Ancient Of Days"

Nothing — and I mean nothing — is immune to change. Sometimes it seems bands are ground zero for change, and Spelljammer is no exception. Following their last EP, the band lost half of its lineup and for a short period of time new material was uncertain. 377 more words
