Manga Review: Deadman Wonderland, Volume 4 by Jinsei Kataoka

Deadman Wonderland, Volume 4 by Jinsei Kataoka This manga. I can already tell that this is going to be one of my all time favorite mangas.

Book Review: Jhereg by Steven Brust

Jhereg by Steven Brust Guess this is what you’d call an oldie but a goodie.

Book Review: The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey

The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey I won’t claim Young Adult speculative fiction as my main interest, though lately, it does feel like I’ve been on a YA kick.
