Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake Review

I don't usually like YA Fantasy; in fact, I actively avoid anything relating to that particular genre, because, as interesting as the premise may be, it will, inevitably, dive much deeper into the relationships, and how the girl is stuck in a love triangle, or quadrangle or whatever. No doubt, several paragraphs will be spent …

First Steps

(This was  published in my university magazine. I don't like that my name has been printed there, but then again, who really reads the university magazines?) First Steps First steps are the hardest, especially when it’s on a completely new planet; it’s even worse when you’ve never known any kind of real gravity outside the …

Death, Interrupted.

(Disclaimer: I started writing only very recently, so, umm, yeah. These are something I like to call Postcard Stories, stories that can, in theory, fit on a postcard. It was inspired by a short story by Arthur C. Clarke, and his introduction to that same story. But, in what I've written, I don't think I …

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars story is the first of the anthology Star Wars movies that will release every alternate year.

Gilmore Girls Seasons 1-7

So, in July, I started watching Gilmore Girls for no apparent reason other than the revival that came out few days ago on Netflix; I thought it'd be a cute show to watch, to kill some time, and it'll be some good entertainment. But, I don't even know how, I got hooked on to this …

Quantum Weirdness

Quantum Weirdness Or What the Hell is this Going On? We all know that Quantum Mechanics is weird; weird doesn’t begin to explain what it really is, but all we can say is weird.

Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood Review

This is the four hundredth year of Shakespeare, and his plays are enjoyed, and loved, and relevant today, as they were in his time. The Hogarth Press was started by Virginia and her husband Leonard Woolf back in the early 20th Century. Virginia Woolf was a lover of Shakespeare, and that was reflected in her …

Version Control by Dexter Palmer Review 

There is no shortage of Time Travel stories in recent times; many TV networks have at least one science fiction show that involves time travel. So, believe me when I tell you that this book breathes new life into the Time Travel genre. Rebecca is married to brilliant, albeit weird and sciencalholic physicists Phillip who has …
