To boldly go where no blogateer has gone before.
Coming together on the first Wednesday of every month for a virtual pat on the back.
IWSG. To sequel or not to sequel? That is the question.

With a manuscript of a new book series in first edits, I wonder now if I really want to make it into a multiple books. I could tie up the characters and empathize The End to make it hit a wall. Or leave it as it is despite not knowing where it is headed.
It is a quandary.
Shimmer. Matthew Keith has a new book out that dives into the mysteries of the lost colony of Roanoke.
115 men, women, and children vanished from the Island Colony of Roanoke with no explanation. The only clue left was a single word carved into a post on the fence surrounding the village: “CROATOAN”.
This is their story, and the story of the family who was the cause of the colony's downfall.
Shimmer follows Alexander Croatoan, the modern-day descendant of a man whose brilliance undid an entire community, as well as his family for generations after.
Movies and TV. Dominion on SyFy channel starts its second season on July 9th. It has an interesting yet disturbingpremise.
God vanishes and in his absence the archangel Gabriel and his army of lower angels wage war against mankind, believing them to be the cause of God's absence.
Gobs of plot holes in this rather cool series and too many clichéd tropes. But it is my guilty pleasure of the month.
Since the script could be improved, clearly the hunk-factor is part of the allure. Examples:
Tom Wisdom as Archangel Michael
Carl Beukes as Gabriel
And Christopher Egan—Eragon, Letters to Juliet—as the Chosen One.
