Working for the Devil

Working for the Devil, by Lilith Saintcrow, is the first in the Dante Valentine series.

Necromancer Dante Valentine makes a deal with the devil. Dante must hunt down and kill a rogue demon. In exchange, Lucifer will let Dante live. It’s not much of a choice. But when Dante realizes that the rogue demon was the one who murdered her friend years ago, she becomes all the more eager to hunt down the killer. With a lesser demon tagging along for protection, Dante will be getting into more than she bargained for.

Flash Trash

I caught the premier of the new Flash Gordon on the SciFi Channel Friday night. And wasted a good hour of my life. They cancelled the Dresden Files and put their hope in this show? I think something is seriously wrong with these people. They wouldn’t know a good show if it slapped them in the face.

Not only was Flash Gordon as corny as a B movie, but the special effects look like they came out of someone’s basement. The dialog and writing was laughable, and not in a good way. Basically, Doctor Who (for the bizarreness) threw up on Flash Gordon. Every cheesy science fiction element is here.

Way to give science fiction a bad name, SciFi Channel!

Prepare for the Invasion

A while back, Karl was kind enough to send a link to this site that I thought you might all get a kick out of: www.aliensurvivalguide.net
The site gives info on how to survive an alien invasion, describing how you can defend yourself in different situations, a brief history, and how to tell if you are a target for alien abduction. These and other fun tidbits are a great way to waste some time on a lazy Friday!

Perfect little site to get you in the mood for the upcoming movie Invasion, starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig.
