‘Soapy’ death freed Skagway, Alaska

A very long time ago, I read James A. Michener's novel, Alaska. I was in a period where I thought it was neat to follow the "history" of a place from its earliest geological birth to wherever it was Michener happened to leave off. Alaksa was the last of his novels I ever read and vowed never to go back because -- as the Library Journal reviewed in 1988 -- the "final sections are trite, uneven and overloaded with stereotypes."

‘Man of Steel’ the Superman we need

A couple of weeks ago, I enjoyed a nice outing with one of my sisters and my two sons. We went to a Columbia theater -- only to make it easier on my sister -- to see "Man of Steel," the new Superman movie starring British actor Henry Cavill in the titular role. I'm here to highly recommend it and not just because it's a superhero film, a genre everyone knows I like. I'm recommending it because it's a really great movie.

Game of Thrones is good, but tough TV

Back in March 2012, I wrote about my newfound love of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series. I mentioned -- almost as a side note -- the brilliant HBO television series based on the books (and named after the first novel) Game of Thrones.
