  • My Halloween Reading List

    Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love the modern incarnation with kids in costumes, trick-or-treating and jack-o-lanterns, but I also love the history of the holiday, the idea of thinning of the veil between the world of the living and the dead, and the centuries-old honoring of the balance between death and life.…

  • Meyer/Kim: Twilight the Graphic Novel, Volume 1

    Being a huge fan of Twilight the book and not being a huge fan of Twilight the movie, I had mixed feelings when I heard that a graphic novel was in the works. It is possible to have too much of a good thing, especially when the supplemental materials to the original “good thing” aren’t…
