If you like Victorian stories, the hallmark tv miniseries “snow queen”, anime in general, and the battle between science and religion, then check this out. It’s gonna be 800 pages long, and is now somewhere in the 500 range, with updates every Mon/Thurs. It reads pretty fast, and is absolutely beautiful and enthralling. The story revolves around Anya, a doctor in training who is very logical and doesn’t believe in spirits. When she nurses the mysterious Jonas back to health, her world gets turned upside down. Now, the people of her town seem to be dying from a plague, coming back as enraged ghosts called shades. It’s really fantastic stuff.
My totem would be this brass locket I’ve had since I was a kid, and only I would ever know what the pictures inside were. That way, if the pictures changed, I’d know I was dreaming.
Dresden Codak is the smartest, funniest, cleverest, best damn webcomic out there. You need to be reading it. Written by Aaron Diaz, I find that I always need a wiki page up to make sure I get the joke. Some highlights of the series (on tshirts):
I was poking around on Anderson’s website, because I told Joe all about the Diagon Alley transformation during the Deathly Hallows release. He just finished all of HP last night and was beside himself with joy. It was adorable. It’s been cool getting to discuss and analyze the series with him this past month. I wanted to see if Anderson’s was gonna do Diagon Alley again for the movie release, but it’s probably too soon to tell. Anyways, cool info I found:
- Aug. 5/6/7 Anderson’s (Downer’s Grove) has a massive sidewalk sale! 50-80% off!
-Sept. 2 Anderson’s (Naperville) is having Cassandra Clare come visit! I’m pretty sure that coinsides with the release of The Clockwork Angel. I am so obsessed with Mortal Instruments that I can’t wait for Infernal Devices. As soon as I get some disposable income, I am buying a rune cuff from etsy.
