Review: The Fifth Season

The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin My rating: 4 of 5 stars   Liquid Hot Magma! This is a read that does not disappoint.

The Renaissance of 40

It’s my Nameday. Cakeday. Birthday, and I turned 40. What does that mean in today’sĀ age? I’ve often repeated the story leading up to this day that it’s not the same as it used to be. When I was growing up this was ‘Over the Hill’, a day for black roses, the bemoaning of the slippery […]
