Star Trek Into Darkness has premiered in Sydney, Australia, and despite JJ Abrams’ pleas, the Internet is getting all leaky with spoilers about the film. So if you really want to know, the truth is out there. If you want to be surprised…better turn off your computer until May 17th.
I had the penultimate show of the season spoiled for Walking Dead when I happened to go the the Huffington Post TV page before seeing the ep, and they had a giant picture of a main character as a zombie plastered at the top of the page…no spoiler alert, nothing to click through, nothing period to protect me from a major plot point bursting forth from my screen. Needless to say, I was pissed.

In case you missed it, Battlestar Galactica is back with a bang in a new web series entitled “Blood & Chrome.” And, don’t worry… unlike Caprica, this series lives up to the BSG name, and the special effects are as slick as ever. The story of William Adama’s first mission after leaving the academy rocks. You can watch it HERE.

After wavering for years on whether or not there would be sequel films for the Star Wars series, it’s finally out of George Lucas’ hands. I love that Disney didn’t even wait for a separate announcement from the buyout news to say there’ll be a new Star Wars film in 2015, since that’s what fans really want, and the universe is too good to be left behind. On the other hand, Disney, one of my least favorite multinational conglomerates, has now purchased another one of my favorite media giants (the others being Pixar and Marvel). So what’s a fan to do? I guess hope for the best. Disney’s purchase of Marvel certainly didn’t do anything to hurt the Avengers movie, and I’d be happy to see Star Wars get the same treatment.

…and entered it into a TV writing contest in the “movie of the week” category. Now it’s in the semi-finals! If it does even better, I may have to start trying to take it back out into the world again.

Is it lame that this is the first thing I’ve posted in so long, and the only reason is because I love this picture so much and I need a URL to get it on Pinterest? Maybe, but I don’t care.
I’d love to give credit to whomever created this, but all I know is I got it from George Takei’s Facebook gallery.

I don’t know about you, but to me it looks like it was The Most Interesting Man in the World…

If Circle of Enemies were made into a film and marketed by the wrong people, the tagline would definitely read: “This time it’s personal.” Still, in a nutshell, that’s what makes the third Twenty Palaces novel stand out from the other two. Rather than protagonist Ray Lilly running around meeting new people in a new place, he’s back to his old haunts trying to figure out why one of his old group of friends is accusing him of killing them all. This one has all the things that made the first two books great, with an extra helping of background on both Ray and the Twenty Palaces Society that a lot of readers (including me) have been waiting for.
Connolly announced that this is going to be the last in the series (for now), but I certainly hope he returns to these characters at some point in the future so we can enjoy more of this fantastic universe.
