Game of Thrones Is Pop Culture's Most Powerful Climate Narrative In A Game of Thrones, the first book in George R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire, we're introduced to the house words of the Stark family: "Winter is Coming."

But recently I was enamored with the idea of trying to write a science fiction story. Lo and behold, as I thought about it Skyward by Brandon Sanderson had come out.

Donato Giancola Is the Caravaggio of Middle-earth When I visited Venice last year, I was overcome by the quality and quantity of the art filling the great halls of the famous Palazzo Ducale. The works of Italian Renaissance painters like Paolo Veronese and Tintoretto surround you and nearly overwhelm you in that place.

Chapter 3 - All systems down! Now knowing the gadget was military tech Baruch didn't seem surprised by it's shape at all so they rolled or threw this into the place they needed to raid so that they may shut down all systems of the party they needed to find or kill! Private military indeed!

R6 Festuscato: 2 Cornwall, part 1 of 3 "So, what do you think of our new tag-along?" Festuscato spoke softly to Mirowen before he turned his head to eye the stranger.

Postcard gateway A few months ago, against my better judgment, I ordered something in the mail: something which turned, rather quickly, into a dangerous gateway. "100 subjects in one box" actually means one hundred book covers, reproduced in postcard format by their publisher, Pelican.

Groundhog Day review: the comedy of trial and errors. What would you do if you were stuck in one place and everything you did was exactly the same, and nothing you did really mattered?
