The Vampire Game trilogy
The Vampire Game trilogy
I was recently asked by a collegue what my favorite read of the year was--I review a hell of a lot of new material every year. Matter-of-factly, I blurted out my answer without a second thought, "The Vampire Game by Les Bailey," I told him. "In fact, I loved the entire trilogy, It was extremely well written and the writing pulled me into another world away from my own. And the way I see it, that's exactly what a good novel is supposed to do!" I told him.

When I first came across Bailey's novel, he was a first-time published author. New to the world of publishing, or so I was told by his agent,...

"I still get nightmares," begins Johnny Truant, editor of House of Leaves ("House," by the way, always colored in blue). He goes on to explain how he stumbled upon the fateful document that would consume him. How Zampanò, an old and eccentric shut-in had left his critique of the Navidson Record scribbled on loose-leaf papers, book covers, and the backs of envelopes and even stamps scattered across his room. Johnny diligently collected all of the papers and organized them into the comprehensive thesis it was meant to be. It is an elaborate and detailed explanation of a documentary that, Johnny...

There are so many great books published every month, some titles worth reading may get lost in the shuffle. So when I heard that my writing coach and mentor of ten years was finally releasing a book about successful freelance writing, I got excited!

It was about ten years ago that I decided to get serious about my desire to make a living with what I loved the most--writing. So I looked up the number of a popular writing group in my home town, got registered and took a class. I had heard of the instructor before, even read a couple of his books and magazine articles, so I was thrilled at the...

Ever randomly burst into tears and not know why? Nothing sad has happened in the last 30 seconds! You're not even thinking about sad stuff! What is wrong with you?!

This has happened to me quite a few times lately. Most notably, while revisiting some favorite movies from my childhood. I pulled 'em out of the shed, dusted of the thin cardboard and clamshell VHS cases, and tried to remember how to work a VCR. (Stop picturing me in a rocking chair wearing a cardigan. And get off my lawn.) During several of these movies that I watched hundreds of times in the early '90s, something strange happened....

30 years after Marie Osmond married, then divorced Stephen Craig, she married him again. Some might say the woman is a glutton for punishment or she never got over the man she truly loved.

Today, Osmond says she’s happier the second time around, and is grateful for the way her husband treats her.

According to press reports, Osmond’s second marriage to music producer Brian Blosil wasn’t blissful by any means.

Globe Magazine reported that despite enduring terrible (emotional) pain, Marie never publicly detailed the humiliation she endured during her 20-year second marriage to the record producer....
