I suppose the question with Emma would be whether or not we felt she was genuinely sensitive at the beginning? Was she match-making because she was driven to match-make, or because she cared about other people and such? And do we feel she gets back to match-making at the end, after learning her lesson? I think we could argue she goes from (2,2) to (-2,-2) [when she's stung and withdraws] to (2,-2) [back in the saddle, but more sensitive to others?) I also like the notion of Emma as an action hero. Look forward to her in Expendables 4.

This week(ish), the articles and stories on Pornokitsch are all focused around a particular theme: the action hero. The men and women of big guns, cunning stratagems and intense stares. The men and women, they say, of iron. But are... Continue reading

Yup! Just that I got Claire North & Cat Webb books signed, but, oddly, nothing by Kate Griffin. Which I find kind of funny. (I should've known you'd be the one to spot that...) What's worrying is that I still have no idea where the Red Seas proof is...

...and comments off. We're glad to have inspired so much discussion amongst the ASOIAF fan communities. However, we're not around this weekend to moderate and don't feel comfortable leaving this thread open without that. The conversation is still very lively elsewhere on Reddit and Tumblr, so those wishing to continue the Arya vs Sansa debate have plenty of places to do so.

Alright folks, we're not up to hosting a Sansa fan vs Arya fan flame war. We appreciate everyone's enthusiasm and passion for the ASOIAF characters, but we're not in Westeros - commenting doesn't need to be lethal. Please respect one another.

I completely agree. Those were my three issues as well - one woman, Ronan being one dimensional and an after-credits scene that actually triggered my PTSD from the last time I encountered that thing. But, yes, absolutely - my favourite or second-favourite Marvel movie and just a brilliant pure SF movie. Even ignoring all the Marvel stuff, this just an awesome space adventure. Terrific film. Look forward to seeing it again (and again) (and maybe again).

Yes! You're totally right. That whole bizarre alt-history part was a seriously random and stupid tangent. In a book filled with random and stupid tangents. The whole book is so shockingly, horribly bad, I'm still kind of thunderstruck by the experience. The King's Men is pretty good though.
Two early genre books from Robert Grant and Garrett Serviss. One is much better than the other. Continue reading
