Welcome to March.
With Daylight Savings Times only a few days away we’re 1/4 through 2020 where does the time go?
Emerald City Comic Con my home away from con appears to still be going on even though a great multitude of dealers have canceled due to Corona Virus. They’ve started issuing refunds which is a first for ECCC but I remember when 9/11 happened and a con credited everyone to 2002. I honestly think they’re waiting for Washington State health official to officially tell them to cancel. Me thinks this is due to insurance? Act of god-type of insurance clauses?

Speaking of cons, Boskone 2020 went well. The dealers room was busier on Friday then I’ve seen in the past.
I’ll be at the Warwick Public Library Author Meet & Greet on March 28 with 40 other authors of the Association of Rhode Island Authors.
Some other appearances by local authors coming up:

Book 2 Update
Work on book 2 continues. The book is going to be a prequel to book 1 and the plan for now is to offer it a free ebook while the paperback will obviously be full price. It’s going to be slightly different in scale while still featuring action, mystery and adventure themes.

A collection of books, television shows, movies and comics I’d recommend to everyone.
In the books category we start off with . . .
If you’re looking for a new space opera series in the theme of Firefly and The Expanse then I recommend reading Becky Chambers‘ Wayfarer Series it is right up your alley. It won the Hugo for best new series and rightfully so.
I’ve just started reading Gideon The Ninth by Tamsyn Muir and finding it very enjoyable. The next book in the series, Harrow The Ninth will be due out this June.Translunar Travelers Lounge Issue 2 is now available on Amazon.
In television . . .
Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan is a great sci-fi book series that has been turned into television series on Netflix. Season 2 just became available last week now staring Anthony Mackie as the lead.
Check out Locke and Key comic written by Joe Hill and art by Gabriel Rodríguez. It is now been turned into a television series on Netflix. (Comixology link). The comic delves deeper into the backstory so I’d recommend reading the trade paperbacks first then watch the series.
Lastly, I am so not okay with this. Started off as a comic book and is now on Netflix. It’s Jean Grey the early years and it’s perfect with its short episodes cuz it gets the point across without plot filler.
