Giving the Devil Her Due

by Nick Mamatason the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series

I have a deep respect for Laurell K. Hamilton, which never fails to surprise people. My own fiction is on the “slipstream” edge of the genre, as likely to be published in an underground zine or mainstream literary journal as it is in a genre magazine. My few books have … read more»

Kristina Speaks Up

by "Kristina" on Crank and Glass

I’m not exactly sure where to begin, but to describe where my heart was at the beginning and how it got lost along the way. Any way you look at things, I’d like it to be known that I’ve always wanted to do the right thing. Even when it came … read more»
