I doubt Stephanie Meyer suffers embarrassment over the popularity of Edward and Bella these days. She started the book on a whim after dreaming of a vampire who desired to feed on a beautiful girl but resisted. She had to … Continue reading
Literary visionary – why does fiction fail on screen?
So, I finally got around to watching the one and only season of The Dresden Files. It was no Firefly, but how many short run shows are capable of generating that level of post-run success? I doubt fans rallied around … Continue reading
