Literary Parents
Andre Norton’s Witch World: From a Master-of-Fantasy and SciFi with an average book length of 180 pages; we could do with following in her footsteps!
Barsoomia: “John Carter, we still live!”
The Expanse: Because it’s ALL that!
Firefly: Truth; the world could use some ‘big damn heroes’ right about now!
The Tolkien Society: Because it should be about the books!
No Star Wars Hope: A Star Wars fan since I stood in line on my 16th birthday to see the opening of “A New Hope,” but…I just can’t anymore…I just can’t 😦
