The Flame in the Flood | Review

The pitter patter of rain falling onto Scout’s floating island, a patchwork of wood and metal, steadily increased as the craft neared the dock.  The two worlds collided gently enough and while Scout secured the mooring, Aesop jumped ashore.  As the companions began...

Mastering the Game | Review

Mastering the Game | Review

Breaking past the Sega Master System-reminiscent cover and pushing through some illusive editorial errors, Mastering the Game is easily my favorite labor of love in a sea of personal and professional self-help books. Author Jon D. Harrison has done what I (and I...

Video Games: A Waste of Time?

Video Games: A Waste of Time?

As a married father with a full-time job, I don't have a lot of free time. What little free time I do have is distributed - albeit unevenly - across reading, working on projects for Geeks With Wives, catching up on movies or TV shows, entertaining quirky academic...

Review: Freedom Wars

Review: Freedom Wars
