REVIEW: X-Men Days of Future Past

Just saw the new X-Men film, Days of Future Past. It takes its name from one of the more popular X-Men comic storylines in the 80s dealing with time travel and preventing a terrible dystopian future.

Why A Re-release?

Its finally happening. After a few years of talking about it and blogging about it, I finally have a date for the re-release of my first book, re-titled STAR BRIGADE: Resurgent. May 27th, 2014, the week of Memorial Day. Its been a long time coming. But why a re-release of my first book? Yes I had put out an earlier edition in late 2005 and then with another Print-on-Demand publisher in early 2006. So why not just put out another book? Read More…
