Thrawn Novelization

Thrawn Novelization #reflection

Thrawn Novelization So it wasn’t that long ago when I talked about the graphical novel for the Timothy Zahn book Thrawn. And from that I have read and finished the novel itself. Right at the start, the comic does a great job of capturing the spirit of the story. But …

Haunter of the dark

Haunter of the Dark #reflection

The Haunter of the Dark So yeah, I’m working through some reading still. Recently it was the story “The Haunter of the Dark.” At the start it was a search for references to Nyarlathotep. There is a quick reference in the story but it is so fleeting to not be …
