Book Review: The Age of Zeus by James Lovegrove After reading Age of Heroes, I was really hoping for more of the same caliber of writing and story. I was let down.

Book Review: Age of Heroes by James Lovegrove I'm not even sure where to begin with describing this book. The Greek demigods are alive and well and running around Earth? And now someone is killing them off? Hell, that's a 5-star rating just on the idea. And the book itself lived up to the hype. … Continue reading Book Review: Age of Heroes

If you are looking for a fantastic collection of werewolf stories, … Continue reading Book Review: Running with the Pack
My wife and I, along with some friends, took of a tour of the Houston Space Center. I was not impressed. NASA is supposed to be America's pinnacle of technological achievement, and the campus looked like something from an old Cold War movie about the Soviet Space Program. The buildings looked old and decrepit, the … Continue reading NASA’s Old
