“Children…in their innocence can’t fathom the weight of some of the most important quotes they hear in bedtime stories,” Afifi writes. “However, we’re adults now, and it’s time we appreciated some of the most profound quotations in the literature of our youth.”
e.g. “It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”
– Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

A 5-star review of ‘Wolf’, the second book in The Were Chronicles, by L. Bruce Diamond is the kind authors pick for their blurbs. He says, for example, that ‘Wolf‘ “is simultaneously frustrating, engrossing, infuriating, and satisfying.” If a book can stir up that kind of reaction in a discerning reader, the author’s labors in producing it were well worth it.
He was a bit less pleased with ‘Shifter,’ the last book in my series. He gave it four stars, noting that it was “A somewhat satisfying and slightly frustrating end-piece to an otherwise entertaining shape-changing triptych.”

At My Modern Met, Sarah Ann Loreth interviews Seattle-based photographer Kindra Nikole about her:
Portraits of Medieval Knights Reimagined as Fearless Women
Photo by Kindra Nikole
“For her latest series entitled Árísan, Kindra drew inspiration from a visit to Glastonbury, the legendary resting place of Arthur, King of the Britons (aka King Arthur)”, Loreth writes. “The photographer now captures the essence of the ancient castle ruins and imbues its historical setting with new meaning. Although women did not originally take part in battle, Kindra’s images recreate history, imagining round table knights as strong, fearless women adorned in period armor.”
