The Legends Of North America

By Richard Paolinelli / July 27, 2018

For nearly two months now, we’ve toured the continent of North America – from Mexico, to Canada and the 50 United States in between – and discovered some unique legends. We’ve seen that Bigfoot roams a wide swath of the land and has many, many cousins. We’ve met a mysterious White Lady who appears in several […]

Mercury Falls by Robert Kroese

By Hawkings Austin / July 16, 2018

Robert Kroese has a marvelous sense of humor and Mercury Falls is perfect. I’ve read a couple of his other books, Starship Grifters and The Dream of the Iron Dragon. They are good books, but for humor, this is much better. As a side note: The Dream of the Iron Dragon should be up for […]

By Richard Paolinelli / July 4, 2018

First, Happy Birthday, America! New Jersey was one of the original thirteen colonies that pulled off Brexit 1776 (sorry British friends). It also has some pretty revolutionary urban legends.

State’s Urban Legends: Delaware

By Richard Paolinelli / June 12, 2018

Delaware is not one of the larger states in the union, nor does it have that many urban legends. But what it lacks in size it makes up for in stature. Check out these two legends the next time you visit Delaware.   Justice Chew’s Ghost Dover is the capital of Delaware, so it is no surprise that […]

Book Review: Lost and Found by J. M. Beal

By Hawkings Austin / June 10, 2018

One of the joys of going to conventions is finding relatively unknown authors. Some of those authors aren’t very creative and just produce fan-fic of whatever series is doing well. In Urban Fantasy, you see a lot of Laura K Lite (Vampire Porn), Monster Hunter-esque (Gun – Porn), and Supernatural-ish (Homosexual porn) writing.  You have […]

State’s Urban Legends: California

By Richard Paolinelli / June 8, 2018

I was born in California. You want weird? You go to California. You want some great urban legends? Yeah, the Golden State has a few of them too. (No, I am not one of them either.)   California’s A-List Haunted Hotel If you weren’t old enough – or fortunate enough – to have met Marilyn […]

Movie Review: Deadpool

By Hawkings Austin / June 4, 2018

Deadpool is a lot of fun to watch. As I’ve said before, Superheroes are the epitome of Urban Fantasy. You have magical powers, fight villains, and save the world. Deadpool 1 was a bit of a genre breaker in that it was essentially a ‘revenge flick’ where the protagonist kills everyone between himself and the […]

Urban Fantasy Legends: Who Played The Wolfman Best?

By Richard Paolinelli / May 18, 2018

Recently we’ve examined the lycans in literature and cinema. There really is just one last, but most important, question to ask: Who portrayed the Wolfman the best? Lon Chaney Jr. started things off in 1941 original, Oliver Reed’s first role as the lead actor followed two decades later and Benicio Del Toro’s turn in 2010 was […]

Amusing Musings: Thoughts on Genre

By Stanley Gray / April 28, 2018

The lines between genres perplex and vex many writers. Often, the rules and conventions seem blurred. Questions can lead to more queries, without the benefit of concrete answers. Urban fantasy, as a relative newcomer on the genre scene, is no stranger to this controversy. While The Night Stalker television series and movie are often credited […]
