So The Walking Dead is now a video game! Zombie games are becoming overdone and stale. Can the video game adaption of the hit comic series do any better? Find out here: Damn It Feels Good To Be A Walker

I'd appreciate all the shares and tweets I get on this! After all, it's Amazon's money I get from this, not readers'.

Anyway, there is one thing that day taught me and it’s that it sucks when field trips overlap during your lunch hour and the dining hall is serving something other than pasta. I also learned the importance of observation.

Good sci-fi is sometimes hard to find. So is the children's book The Search for WondLa worth anyone's time? Find out here: They Are Unlike Any Others I Have Encountered in All My Travels.

After two days of a break (crazy busy preparing for the release of my debut spy fiction), here's my interview with Wayne Arthurson, author of A Killing Winter, which came out on April 10 - http://ethanjones.blog.com/2012/05/0...yne-arthurson/

Enjoy,
