Odds and Ends #15

The 15th Odds and Ends has just been posted to my Patrons, just in time for Easter. This week: a great post-cyberpunk thriller for 99 cents (in Italian!), a stack of science books for real cheap, a whole world dominated by birds, a collection of Hobbit recipes, an article about the late Gene Wolfe and a short movie about the end of the world.

Odds and Ends #14

The members of the Five Bucks Brigade have just received the 14th issue of Odds and Ends, this week a huge collection of books: a nice fantasy novella and a cartload of thrillers, all for free, a masterful science fantasy novel, and a learned essay on Victorian monsters. Plus Genghis Khan, and a dark conspiracy.

Odds and Ends #13

I have just posted the thirteenth Odds and Ends for my patrons, and the first one in which I answered a request from one of them. So we got a wide selection of free writing software, collaborative mind-mapping and Roleplaing Game campaign management. Plus two short movies, a melancholy, award-winning cartoon and a ferocious comedy.
Because it is good to be my Patrons.

Odds and Ends #12

The last issue of Odds and Ends for March just reached the Patrons in the Five Bucks Brigade (that get four issues per month instead of just two). This month: the history of the universe in thirty minutes, an inflammatory book about climate, free, a new social network worth exploring, a trip to Africa looking for Atlantis in the company of a shrunken head, Toto & Talbot Mundy, and a neat little roleplaying game.

Odds & Ends #10

I have just posted the tenth Odds and Ends to my Five Bucks Brigade patrons. This week, a biography of Julius Caesar written by one of the fathers of spy fiction, a treasure trove of curious facts on films courtesy of the BBC, two stories by Algernon Blackwood… narrated by Algernon Blackwood, a big pile of cookbooks and a recipe app.
Plus a few free ebooks.

Odds and Ends, Blue Moon Edition

I have just posted a special “Once in a Blue Moon” edition of Odds and Ends to my patrons. This month has FIVE weekends, so we’ll get one extra issue of this column for all of my Patrons. And we have a collection of Chinese SF, a complete Odyssey package, an elegant and unusual period comedy of manners, all you need to play backgammon and a kickstarter for Old School gamers.
