Good News For Firefly Fans

I love Firefly and I was really bummed when the show got cancelled. I loved the movie Serenity which gave the series a proper ending. It's one of my favorite TV shows, so I was pretty excited when I first heard about the upcoming video game Firefly Online. Well, the news about it got even better.

It was announced at Comic-Con yesterday that the entire original Firefly stars will be reprising their roles for the video game. Needless to say, I am quite pleased at this news and looking forward to checking out the game upon its release.

You can find out more and check out the game on their website:

A Blog You Should Be Reading

Like Madness In The Spring is my good friend Jim Milligan's blog and you should be reading it because of Jim's latest serial fiction series The Widow Wore Gold.  It is very well done, with interesting characters and a great story. There are robots, futuristic tech, and an intriguing mystery. It also explores the ideal of what it truly means to be human and the concept of love and friendship between those who are human and those who are not.

I personally really enjoy reading the story immensely because Jim has created characters that I genuinely like and care about. I also find that as I am reading every week, when it gets to the end and I realize I have to wait until the following week for the next installment I feel disappointment because I want to know more about what's going on which shows that it really hooked me, a positive sign for me in my love of reading a good story.

Jim has also created this very cool futuristic science fiction world with brilliant concepts and ideas about technology, and alien creatures that truly come to life in your imagination with his great writing. You can tell that he put a lot of time and thought into making the characters and world of The Widow Wore Gold come to life and stand out, making for an incredibly enjoyable story and one worth reading.

The Widow Wore Gold is now in week 26 and it just keeps getting better and better every week. If you haven't read it, you should check it out because it is a fantastic story especially if like myself, you are a fan of science fiction and robots. You can also let Jim know what you think as he would love to hear feedback from his readers.

Help Firecat

Hello dear readers,

This post is something special as it concerns a very dear friend of mine. Without getting into a lot of detail, medical issues and expenses have made things difficult for her and things are very shaky right now. She is a free lance artist and one of the best ways to give her a bit of help is to commission a piece for her which you can do via her site. Another way you can help is to share the link to her website via whichever social media you use to get the word out. Every little bit helps. Thank you so much, gang I appreciate it.
