Author Kristin Fouquet checks in with some kind words for the bastard at the center of No Tears For Old Scratch...

"Wohlrob has created the perfect despicable character in Biff. He is loathsome in his lack of compassion for humanity. However, his charms are not lost on the reader. I found myself reveling in the loveable bastard’s sense of humor and rallying for him to succeed..."

Gunshot squibs are one thing. Blastershot squibs are something else entirely. Things occasionally got pretty hot on the set of the original "Star Wars" as our exclusive behind-the-scenes clip reveals that getting blasted by Han Solo's blaster sometimes left more … Continue reading →

What is No Tears for Old Scratch about? Here's a quick description to give you a hint...

“Welcome to Knob’s End—The Holiest Town in America.”

So reads the sign that greets a mysterious stranger as he steps off a bus one dark night in upstate New York.  But life is not so great in the small town of Knob’s End. The economy has tanked, jobs are drying up, and people are losing their homes. Led by their local pastor, Father Balano, the citizens’ only source of pride is an award-winning community display—“The Graveyard of the Innocent.” Once the stranger arrives, however, life in Knob’s End begins to unravel.  Soon, a child is missing and the sins start stacking up. As the stranger stirs the pot, he can’t avoid confrontations with menacing old ladies, anarchic metalheads, pugnacious Christians, and the ghosts of his own past…

No Tears for Old Scratch is a dark and humorous literary tale about an outsider who suddenly finds himself lost in a veritable dead-end.

We live in an age where we get short teasers for slightly longer trailers for full-length movies, so it makes sense that the concept would transfer to books. Fans get especially excited when it comes to seeing new material from the sixth book in George R.R...

George R.R. Martin's bestselling "A Song of Ice and Fire" series has found even more readers with HBO's adaptation, "Game of Thrones." Martin's next much-anticipated installment, "The Winds of Winter," is coming -- it has to be. Entertainment Weekly has the book's first paragraph .

One bit of good news from 2013: My last big project of the year, Stephen Hawking's Snapshots of the Universe (which gave me the opportunity to work with the man himself) launched in the iTunes app store on December 12. And was named Apple's Editor's Choice for the week. Check it:

Stephen Hawking has gone to great lengths to promote science through books and videos, but he has been conspicuously absent in the software world --
