April News

Convention News:

I’ve never been one for April Fool’s Jokes so no big surprise awaits for you.

It looks like between the last newsletter and now, Necronomicon 2021 and RI Summer Comic Con in Rhode Island has been canceled. I think it’s all for the best. Even with the vaccines rolling out it’s going to be a while before the convention scene is back on its feet and most of the conventions are still going the virtual route.

I’m going to assume WorldCon DC isn’t going to happen even if they’re still looking at hotels since the one they were supposed to have it in has filed for bankruptcy.

Now, as for why San Diego Comic Con decided to say: Let’s throw a con on Thanksgiving weekend, I haven’t the faintest idea why.

When Riders Crosleigh Update

The When Riders Crosleigh K BAR count: 36008, goal is 120000.

While book 2 is plugging along and the price of the ebook version book 1 is $0.99 on every electronic platform.

I was playing around with a boxed set template for eBooks 1,2+3. I realize I haven’t even finished book 2 but it’s fun to play around in Photoshop.

Music News:

If you haven’t seen Dark on Netflix and are looking for a Stranger Things fix, then go watch Dark. If you liked Dark and enjoyed the music by Ben Frost, seasons 1+2 are up on iTunes and make for great ambience music if you’re looking for something spooky.RKB’s Picks

The Irregulars on Netflix bears a striking resemblance to The Nevers that will be appearing on HBO/Max shortly. Both series take place in London and involve supernatural events going on. The Irregulars has two things going for it: 1. It takes place in the Sherlock Holmes-universe and 2. Joss Whedon isn’t involved with it. I’m two episodes into it and enjoying it, sure some of the plot lines are clunkers, the wide-eyed Prince being the primary culprit but no show is ever perfect right out of the gate.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier are two episodes into their six episode run and the banter we got during Civil War between the two actors is back. Yay! The great thing about this series is that it’s not trying to copy what WandaVision did. While WandaVision covered what happened after the death of Vision in Infinity War, this series covers what happens after Captain America needs to be replaced since the events of End Game. It also takes a couple of deep cuts into the super soldier serum when Captain America was on ice. And as always: the animated credits that started in Captain America The First Avenger and continued through Winter Soldier and Civil War are worth watching.
