Hammered by Kevin Hearne

In the last book, Atticus made a promise to his vampire lawyer to help him kill Thor. In this book he keeps his promise. I liked it as much as the previous novels and look forward tot he next. Highly Recommended.

Needs Repeating

“Secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy and censorship. When any government or church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, “This you may not read, this you must not know,” the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked in this fashion; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, whose mind is free. No, not the rack nor the atomic bomb, not anything. You can’t conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.” ― Robert A. Heinlein

Outrage over ‘Game of Thrones’ Creators ‘Confederate’ HBO Show: ‘Two White Guys’ Making Slavery Series
When I saw the posts on this show originally, I saw it as a thinly veiled poke at conservatives 'cuz we're all racists and secretly yearn for a return to the old South. Hoist on their own petard, they are. Heh.

Actually, the premise isn't new. There have been many alternate histories of the Civil War and it's aftermath in fiction. Some well thought out. Some, not so much. This, I think, will be the later.

Dumbass

Caught red-handed: The moment a Baltimore cop 'planted drugs to set up a suspect' and was caught on his own body camera
Apparently the Body Camera had a 30 second buffer and the officer turned it on too soon after he planted the drugs.

Hexed by Kevin Hearne

This time a groups Nazi witches try to invade the territory of Tempe Arizona's local coven and the Iron Druid helps out. The plot is more complicated than that but that basically sums it up. I like the Irish Wolfhound Oberon best. It's good stuff. Highly Recommended.

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Not Woke Enough for SJW Critics
SJWs will always bitch about something 'cuz that's what they do. Best thing to do is live your life and ignore them. BTW Spider-Man: Homecoming is a fun, well made film and highly recommended.

Sam Glanzman 1924-2017

Almost all my old favorites are are gone and sorely missed. The Comics Journal has a good obit on Sam Glanzman. The art below was a piece I purchased a while back. The inks are his.
