I don't even remember why I clicked on this story. It was in one of my digests simply listed as 'One Heckuva Hike'. Mild curiosity was probably the culprit. But what started off as a beautiful story about the Appalachian Trail ended up going deeper into the human psyche than I ever expected. You can … Continue reading A Story About A Man, A Trail And The Life Before
Taylor Swift Is Alright With Me
I like Taylor Swift and I'm not ashamed to say it. I don't, in fact, think she writes bad music. I like her tunes, I rock out to them all the time, and her Bad Blood video was everything, dahling, just everything. Does she sometimes come across as the branded version of every good American … Continue reading Taylor Swift Is Alright With Me

You Haven’t Seen Snowpiercer Yet? Say It Ain’t So!
Because that movie rocks. It literally rocks. When did you last see a movie that uses horror to highlight social injustice in an entertaining and thoughtful way? South Korean and Australian cinema, particularly the thrillers and horrors, have become my new favourite source for good movies. When I saw the trailer for Snowpiercer I knew … Continue reading You Haven’t Seen Snowpiercer Yet? Say It Ain’t So!
Greg Byrne Got One Hell of a Publishers Weekly Review For His Debut Novel Nine Planets!
Greg's a wonderful old friend from Australia and we met on the OWW years ago where we supported each other as we crept toward our goal of being decent writers some day and shared our love of all things cricket. Greg wrote this amazing, emotional, dystopic yet almost urban fantasy book called 'Nine Planets' that really didn't … Continue reading Greg Byrne Got One Hell of a Publishers Weekly Review For His Debut Novel Nine Planets!
