Happy Birthday, Michael Faraday 22, is the great British scientist Michael Faraday's 226th birthday.

The Princess and the Guard by Marissa Meyer Winter is a creepy, but cool character that we first meet towards the end of Cress. And more of her horrible history is then introduced in Fairest.

Gail Interviews Diana Pharaoh Francis & We Talk Humor! My office is small and full of books, a giant oak desk, lots of rocks, lots of fantasy art on the walls, a collection of sharp weapons on the walls, and a couple of glass witchballs hanging from the doorway.

Back in Black One type of shoot I always love to work on but am very seldom asked to do is the band promo. I love the effort that can be put into the project as it's more then just turning up and snapping the artist / group, there is usually a theme or style they want to reflect their music.

Lamplight City, the steampunk-ish detective adventure game is now out From developer Grundislav Games, who also made A Golden Wake, Lamplight City is a detective adventure set in a alternate "Victorian" setting.

Okay, the mechaphant has a heat-ray or other type of steampunk ray-gun for a trunk, but we can do this without having to go to Mars. As the song says: "Got my ray gun and a cup of tea in hand".

The Skytanic Departing Maersk Pier on her maiden voyage to Belleville, the Royal Yacht 'Skytanic' is the largest, fastest, and most luxurious skyliner ever built.
