  • Has Mercedes Lackey jumped the Shark?: "However (spoilers ahead), in "Intrigues," very little happens. The mysterious, menancing foreigners are lurking about, being mysterious and menacing. The Collegium is ablaze with an, um, "rather derivative" training game, that strongly resembles another game from a highly successful fantasy writer." Quidditch polo, anyone?
  • Alcohol plays role in romance: "Also, when both partners drank either heavy or light amounts, as long as they were similar amounts compared to their partner, it was better for the relationship than when one drank heavily and the other lightly." Is that a question on Match.com?
  • Amazon pedophilia author arrested: "Greaves argues in the book that pedophiles are misunderstood, as the word literally means to love a child. He adds that it is only a crime to act on sexual impulses toward children, and offers advice that purportedly allows pedophiles to abide by the law."
