I wanted this book because of its significance to history. It happens, not much, but at times I'll purposely want a book for the historical significance, but consider it dangerous as well. This book was one of those books I wanted, but also struggled to find. I searched for years until it literally dropped in … Continue reading 28 DoBR: Malleus Maleficarum, Or: The Hammer of Witches by Heinrich Godfrey Kramer

It even became part of the story in my own written … Continue reading 28 DoBR: Fallen Angels, the Watchers, and the Origins of Evil by Joseph Lumpkin
Writers seldom write the things they think. They simply write the things they think other folks think they think. So this is my two cents; one man’s opinion – I think. Being a writer, I’ve noticed a popular sentiment, usually put forth by editors & publishers (interestingly enough, not so much by writers) that being … Continue reading The Word: Frankly, I’m Puzzled By Jeffrey G.
