Happy Holidays and All That
I've been extremely busy moving into the new house and bingeing on Christmas movies, which is why I haven't posted anything here in a while. As I do every December, I've written dozens of reviews over on Mainlining Christmas - it's a good resource if you're ever looking for advice on what to watch and what to avoid like the plague during the yuletide season.
A few highlights include the absolutely amazing holiday album from one of my oldest friends and his collaborators - you can download it free here and read my take here). Also, check out my write-up of the Adam Ruins Christmas special and the pictures of the custom Krampus action figure I put together, if you get a chance - I'm especially proud of these two articles.
If you're looking for something longer to read this Christmas, I'm making my 2009 fantasy novel For Love of Children available free on Kindle between the 23rd and the 27th. It offers an alternative look at holiday icons and modern mythology - grab a copy, if you haven't already.
I haven't made it to the movies much recently, but I did make time for Rogue One. My full review is up at The Middle Room, but the short version is that I loved it.
