Paperback Perils

Paperback Perils: Werewolves of Fantasy Literature

Besides dragons, werewolves are a consistent mythical creature in fantasy literature. They are particularly prominent in the subgenre of Urban Fantasy. I particularly enjoy this subgenre because it contrasts the world of magic to that of technology. Urban Fantasy is not all I’m looking at here but it has a definite presence.   Harry Potter:… Continue reading Paperback Perils: Werewolves of Fantasy Literature

I love a good beer and enjoy trying out new ones. If you remember by ranting love of the craft beer I found in Alaska, you know dark beers are my go to. When I get the opportunity, which is not as often as I would like, I make my way to a local brewery.… Continue reading Weekend Wanderings: Wild Acre Brewing Company

Weekend Wanderings: Home for the Holidays: Part III: Kansas

One of the big events during my visit to Kansas was a trip to Cimarron, KS for a belated Christmas with Keltin’s paternal side of the family. I don’t know if any of you have met a large number of your significant other’s relatives all at once but it is a bit overwhelming, even if… Continue reading Weekend Wanderings: Home for the Holidays: Part III: Kansas

Farmers Market, Foodie Friday, Texas

Foodie Friday: Tex Select Farms Grab Box: Herbs, Dressing Recipes, and More

As you tell from past posts, I really enjoy farmer’s markets. But the Dallas Farmers Market is too far away for me to visit every weekend. One of my favorite markets is the Clearfork Farmers Market in Fort Worth. It is much smaller than Dallas but you get to know the vendors well. One of… Continue reading Foodie Friday: Tex Select Farms Grab Box: Herbs, Dressing Recipes, and More
