I Recently Finished Reading: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

I've been reading science fiction for most of my life, so I have long been aware of the influence that Verne has had on the genre. That said, I had never actually read any of his works.

I Recently Finished Reading: At the Mountains of Madness

I had never read any Lovecraft before this, but Audible had his entire collection available, so I decided to give it a try.

I Recently Finished Reading: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

I want to start this post by stating that while I enjoyed reading the Harry Potter series, they weren't a huge influence on me. I was already in college when I started reading them, so I wasn't the target demographic, and I viewed them mostly as well written middle-grade/YA fantasy. Now, I recognize the series … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Audience Engagement – Why Video Game Movies Rarely Work

It's about half an hour long, so please watch it if you're so inclined: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mvo60B3myBw For those of you who didn't watch it, the premise is … Continue reading Audience Engagement – Why Video Game Movies Rarely Work
