Happy Birthday Mary Shelley!

I would be remiss if i did not mention a very special birthday….Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was born on this day (August 30, 1797). For those that do not know, she created one of my all time favorite horror characters, FRANKENSTEIN in her book titled Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus.

Murder on the Orient Express Review

Murder on the Orient Express Review

TITLE: Murder on the Orient Express

AUTHOR: Agatha Christie

GENRE: Mystery

PAGES: 336

Murder on the Orient Express (Hercule Poirot Series)

Once upon a time, when I was around 9 or ten years old, I watched the movie “Murder on the Orient Express” with my grandfather. I loved it! My grandfather then blew my mine by telling me it was based on a book. A week later, he gave me a copy of the book, and a love affair with the mystery genre was born.

The premise is simple, a millionaire is found dead in his compartment on the Orient Express, he was stabbed a dozen times. His door was locked from the inside.  Who did it? That is the question Belgian detective Hercule Poirot must discover.

I have to admit this is one of those books I go back to from time to time. It is not that there is nothing new out there, it is that this book is that enjoyable time and time again.

This book is the one that started my love affair with mysteries, especially the “who dunnit” side of the genre. I love piecing the puzzle together and figuring out the villain.

Thank you for the introduction Gramps.

Remembering Jack Kirby

Jack Kirby, comic book artist, writer, editor, would have been 100 years old today.Jack-Kirby art-of-jack-kirby wyman-skaar.jpg

In the course of his career, he has worked for both Marvel, and DC. He gave us such memorable characters as CAPTAIN AMERICA (With Joe Simon), THE INCREDIBLE HULK, THE FANTASTIC FOUR, and X-MEN (with Stan Lee), His FOURTH WORLD SAGA, and NEW GODS for DC among many other titles. One thing is certain, he has entertained comic book lovers around the world!
