2016: Obama's America

Moonrise Kingdom

That's My Boy (Adam Sandler)

Scared Silly

It's October, dear readers, and you know what that means: Christmas decorations are going up at the mall!  (Sadly, yes, but not quite the sort of spirit I had in mind.)  No, October means Halloween, and for speculative fiction readers that means lots of hair-raising, spine-tingling, soul-chilling HORROR!  Unless, of course, you're me: a self-confessed horror... wimp

Fiction Audiobooks for October 2012

BCD Amis
     Lionel Asbo: state of England
by Martin Amis.   Read by Alex Jennings.  8 discs.  9+ hours.
     “Amis’ phenomenal vim and versatility, anchoring roots in English literature, and gift for satire power this hilariously Dickensian, nerve-racking, crafty, bull’s-eye tale of a monster and a mensch. Lionel, a volatile and brutal thug much feared in his destitute Liverpool neighborhood, proudly changed his last name to Asbo, the English acronym for anti-social behavior order. Loyal to blood, Lionel has taken in his orphaned teenage nephew, Desmond. Gentle, smart, bookish, and half-black…”

What's Cooking?: Hearty Soups

Leaves will soon be swirling around in splashes of golden yellow, sunburst red, and candied orange in the brisk autumn air.  It brings to my mind the colorful palette of squash, carrots, tomatoes, and zucchini in a hearty bowl of vegetable soup.   Can you picture this pot of soup as a canvas where you can “paint” with your selection of favorite vegetables, meats, herbs, and spices?   How about the flavor and texture?  It can be savory, spicy, sweet, tangy, smoky or even sweet and sour at the same time.  Do you like it steamy hot or refreshingly cold?  Like it in a light broth, or creamy as in a chowder?  Similar to an artist, your creative strokes in ingredients, flavors, and texture are limitless.
