The Men of the Sea: Part I0
The first of an article in two parts I had written a while back …
The Númenórean fleet and the voyages throughout Arda
The Númenóreans were, without any doubt, not only the greatest mortal beings, but also the finest mariners in the Second Age. Their skills in the building of ships and their voyages across the vast seas of the world were unsurpassed by any other race. This article will give a glimpse into the workings of their fleet and how it was organized. Also, it will look into the innumerable navigations that the men of Númenor undertook throughout the wide oceans. I shall be looking mainly at a span of 1523 years: from the first Númenórean ships to arrive in Middle-Earth, until the death of Tar-Minastir, when they began “failing” as a race.

Review: PRETTY DEADLY #1, published by Image Comics0
“Pretty Deadly,” a new series published by Image Comics, is written by Kelly Sue DeConnick, who has a flair for the dramatic and the poetic. Emma Rios is the artist and she’s right in step with this refreshingly offbeat Western. Colors by Jordie Bellaire give us a good spooky mood. Letters by Clayton Cowles add to that mood. And Sigrid Ellis provides the edits. All in all, a very well put together comic about Death out to exact justice through various methods. It might, for a moment, sound like “East of West” but, no, it’s out there dancing to its own beat.

National Novel Writing Month – Sable’s Privateers1
NaNoWriMo begins in 11 days. This is what I will be writing; the third book in my series “The Toy Soldier Saga.” 50000 words in a month is the goal; that’s 1667 words in a day. I succeeded in 2011 with my first book in the series, “A Few Good Elves“; I did not succeed in 2012 with the second book, “Brothers in Arms,” because I had another deadline on the 15th of November, but I did manage 35000 words. I am still writing “Brothers in Arms” but because the NaNoWriMo rules say you must start a new novel, I’m jumping in with Book Three anyway. Wish me luck! Although you may not hear as much from me in the next few weeks.
Here’s the link to my writer’s profile at NaNoWriMo.

Epic Rap Battles of History – Gandalf vs. Dumbledore0
The first one I saw and still one of my favourites.
Epic Rap Battles of History – Vader vs. Hitler 36
I love this series, I don’t care if it’s now “mainstream.” I am not a hipster and I like what I like, whether other people don’t like it or not!
