Assassin's Creed: The Secret Crusade by Oliver BowdenMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I actually enjoyed this one more than the previous two in the series. This book follows the story of Altair through the events of the first Assassin's Creed, as well as the follow-up game Assassin's Creed Bloodlines (for the PSP). The thing I appreciated about this novel is that it fills in Altair's story between

Assassin's Creed: Renaissance by Oliver BowdenMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Not a bad adaptation of Assassin's Creed 2. It's been over 10 years since I played the game, so this was a fair memory jogging device of things that occurred in Ezio's timeline in that second game. The writing wasn't bad, the main characters we good, and (if you're like me) you were reminded of some of the happenings
Review: Star Trek: Gold Key Archives Volume 2

Star Trek: Gold Key Archives Volume 2 by Len WeinMy rating: 2 of 5 stars OK, this is a product of its time. It's more like Flash Gordon with a Star Trek gloss. Some of the odd things in this volume: space voodoo. Space hippies (to be fair, this was also true in TOS), punchcards and tapes and computer storage, a "brain drain" device (along with Spock's Brain, before Spock's Brain!).

Star Trek: Discovery: The Enterprise War by John Jackson MillerMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I rather enjoyed a glimpse into what happened to the Enterprise during the year that they missed in the Klingon War. They were involved in another war, albeit, without really wanting to be in it. There were quite a few moments where I said: "oh man, I wish I could see this on-screen!" This novel also fills

Λόγια της πλώρης by Andreas KarkavitsasMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Μια συλλογή από μικρές ιστορίες που έχουν ως θέμα την θάλασσα, και την ζωή βγάζοντας το ψωμί σου από την θάλασσα. Αν και η γλώσσα είναι εντυπωσιακή και όμορφη, που μου θύμησε

Armada by Ernest ClineMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I was looking forward to reading this book as soon as I discovered that it existed. I really liked "Ready Player One" and this book did not disappoint. The book has a ton of references to (mostly) 80s pop-culture and it indulges the conspiracy theorists that say that the government is preparing us for the imminent arrival of our alien foes.

Last week I was catching up with Continuum, a Canadian science fiction show about a future cop that finds her way to present-day Vancouver.What I didn't realize is that this was the final season, and I was actually watching the final episode, which for once was refreshing to not know what was coming. (yes, spoilers ahead). Stop reading, and go see this series. It's worth watching.With the TV

With the storms that have hit over the past week came school closings, and with school closings came a little extra time on my hands. I did spend a considerable amount of this extra time catching forward with my readings for my research methods course, but I guess I also used the time "wisely" to complete another game on the xbox. Over the Christmas break Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 was on
