Reviewer Smiles Upon VINDICATION OF MAN

Posted December 21, 2016 By John C Wright

In which your humble author is compared to Bacon. Not Francis Bacon, pork bacon. I’m always hesitant to review John C. Wright’s works. It’s like… trying to review bacon. What do you say about bacon? That it’s delicious? Everyone knows that, except vegans and vegetarians and a few crazies, but the competency of vegans and vegetarians to […]

Excerpt from FEAST OF ELFS

Posted October 7, 2016 By John C Wright

From the Pen of Brad Torgersen

Posted September 7, 2016 By John C Wright

Puppy-in-Chief Brad Torgersen asks the musical question: Apparently the Dragon Awards are “bad” or at least invalid, because voters are not charged a fee for participation.
