More than anything, Andín dal Rovi wants to escape her small town life, helping her father in the store, watching her younger brother prepare to take the place at University she’d longed for.
Instead of escape, she gets a thousand-year-old demon stuck in her head, and she loses everything – her home, her family and her country.

Here’s my schedule for Boskone this weekend!
Loose Ends and Contradictions in Doctor Who – Friday 18:00 – 18:50, Marina 4 (Westin)
*Spoilers, sweetie!* Doctor Who has become infamous for its loose ends and contradictions — most of which get explained away with a little timey-wimey flash and sparkle. Yet, we still love The Doctor. In fact, many of those seeming problems tend to open future storylines and plot points. Which do we most want to see resolved? Which seem too far gone to pull back? And will we see River again … or has that loose end been tied?
Welcome to the Dark Side! – Friday 21:00 – 21:50, Marina 3 (Westin)
Where there are heros, there be villains. And Star Wars is packed with wonderfully wretched scum (versus lovable rogues who prefer to go solo). It’s so good to be bad in that far-, far-away galaxy. From palpably evil Emperor Palpatine to emo king Kylo Ren, jellybellied Jabba the Hut to big bad Lord Vader, aren’t the villains the ones who make Star Wars sing? Why do these wicked characters work? Why do we love them, or love to hate them? And are they all really the bad guys they seem to be?
Reading: Susan Jane Bigelow – Saturday 10:00 – 10:25, Independence (Westin)
The J.J. Abrams Effect – Saturday 12:00 – 12:50, Marina 2 (Westin)
J.J. Abrams is taking the Hollywood box office by storm with his innovative new films, television series, and reboots. From Lost to Star Trek to Star Wars and beyond, Abrams-developed projects delight in redefining visual storytelling, but is there a point where his creative “genius” goes too far or not far enough? What makes his work feel so innovative despite his tendency to reboot without reinvention?
The Sandman Legacy – Saturday 15:00 – 15:50, Burroughs (Westin)
At a time when the comics industry was trying to survive, Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman was published. Back then, many thought comics were dying. The Sandman opened their eyes. A gateway comic series for new readers, including women, how has its reputation fared in succeeding years? Looking back at its success, what impact has it had on comics? Could you describe the series’ influence on today’s comics, fiction, and film as, well, Endless?
Steven Universe and the Cartoon Renaissance – Saturday 20:00 – 20:50, Marina 4 (Westin)
“Believe in Steven!” Cartoons are back with a bang, and the incredible Steven (a half-human, half-Gem hero) is helping save the world. Steven Universe is just one of several adult speculative cartoons that have been praised for their complex characters and rich worldbuilding. From Space Ghost to Futurama to Robot Chicken, these shows have captured our imaginations. Why do we love them so much, and what else should we be watching?
Come check it out! I have goodies to give away and more!
Lots has happened in the last, uh, year. I’m bad at blogging. I never used to be, there was a time when I would blog every day about this or that.
So, let’s sum up the things:
2. Book news! The forthcoming final book in the Extrahuman Union series is now titled EXTRAHUMANS, and is scheduled for release late this year. The first three books, now titled BROKEN, SKY RANGER, and THE SPARK, will be coming out as re-releases before then. BROKEN is due out on March 22! We have a cool new cover and all kinds of great stuff planned.
3. Secrets! I can’t tell you what they are but they’re cool.
I am going to conventions, naturally, and I’ll post my schedule as those come up.
