Sadly, Ernest Cline’s “Aramda” (his follow up to “Ready Player One”) is a huge disappointment. My review for the Boston Globe.

What's a comic con from a celebrity's POV? I interview Stan Lee, Elvira, Manu Bennett and others to get the inside poop. https://www.bostonglobe.com/lifestyle/2015/07/29/boston-comic-con-from-celebs-point-view/3Pf7yj630YIc7wsfndEFHK/story.html

If T.S. Eliot had won the culture wars, we’d have first-person shooters based on “The Waste Land.” Instead, the Inklings beat the Bloomsbury Group, so we get stories by Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. https://www.bostonglobe.com/arts/books/2015/06/20/the-fellowship-philip-zaleski-and-carol-zaleski/sS9A83OaPVhoTUsNStlQFL/story.html
Who has had greater impact on our culture—Virginia Woolf and T. S. Eliot, or C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien? The husband-and-wife scholarly team of Philip Zaleski and Carol Zaleski say the latter.
