Real Life Interference

The Flu, an Ear Infection, a Car Accident

That pretty much sums up my life for these past three weeks – and my excuses for not having posted.

I plan to get back on track with posting 2-3 times per week. In the meantime, you can check out the movie review I wrote for Spiral on the QuietEarth website.


QuietEarth is a website “Dedicated to genre film and everything Post Apocalyptic.”  They post news and reviews of books, movies (including foreign), and more. I link to QuietEarth on my blogroll – they are just that cool.

Check out what they say about Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse. This is a short story collection that includes authors like Stephen King and Octavia Butler. I’m about a third of the way through and loving it!


If you happen to be looking for another great science fiction resource, visit io9 – a website “strung out on science fiction”

I star a lot of their posts not only for content but for the incredible images they find. Some are so cool and inspiring – like this concept art from Hatch FX about the Gorgeous End of the World:

Some are just hilarious – like this one, about how Evolution Explains Why LOLCats Control Your Mind:

About Jamie Thornton

I am a voracious reader in many genres. I do sometimes judge a book by its cover art. Life is too short to spend time reading or reviewing bad books. My own published novels are full of adventure, danger, and complicated characters. I call Northern California home. I graduated from UCLA with a degree in Anthropology and belong to the Wordforge writing group. I live, rather happily, with my husband, dog, a garden, a viola and a bicycle. Check out my short stories and novels at

    Hope everyone is healing well!
