The TV reviews and such will continue in their usual format, but under the authors’ column headings. So, for example, J. Keith Haney will continue to review Grimm as part of his column, so look for those reviews under his heading.

Also, you may have noticed that we have been introducing news for books and …

“Sword and Mythos” is Fully Funded

Writing in all-caps is unprofessional but no matters: OMG YOU GUYS WE REACHED OUR GOAL.
