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.
Because it’s good to be my patrons.

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.
Because it’s good to be my Patrons.

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.
