After the Amazing Spider-Man films ended up failing hard, his MCU incarnation had a lot to live up to. Tom Holland’s version first debuted in Captain America: Civil War and showcased him as the bumbling socially awkward teen who tries his best to balance school and his super hero life all while keeping his identity a secret. Spider-Man: Homecoming was…serviceable. It wasn’t an amazing movie by any means but it did introduce Peter Parker nicely.

Fast forward almost three years later and we have Spider-Man: Far From Home. It takes place after the events of Endgame (so if you somehow haven’t seen it yet, now’s a good time to do so) and follows Peter trying to live a normal life in the aftermath of the snap (this movie refers to it as “the blip”).

So how does this film fare? Let’s find out.

You ever look for a story and you immediately pick it up because of the title. Well, sometimes, short fiction is like that as well. You see an awesome, hilarious title like, The Legend of Wolfgang Robotkiller, and you wonder what the heck that story is it about. Obviously it involves robots and killing robots, but what else? A lot, actually.

Rebel Born (Secondborn Book 3) by [Bartol, Amy A.]

Today’s novel review is Rebel Born, by Amy A. Bartol. You can buy a copy here. If you haven’t seen them, I reviewed the last two books in the series, Secondborn and Traitor Born. This has been a long time coming. It’s a dystopia story about Roselle St. Sismode, a Secondborn who joined her Fate’s military and was thrusted into power against her will.

As a note I will be referring to the previous two books, so this will have spoilers from those. So if you haven’t had a chance read them all before digging in to this review. Speaking of, let’s get going.

Whoo boy. Do I have a review for you. I’m likely going to spend the next thousand words gushing about how epic this movie was and how it exceeded all expectations. Like, this would forever be the gold standard of superhero movies and I honestly don’t know how Marvel Studios, or really, anyone, can top this. So let’s just get right into it.

This won’t spoil the ending, but will contain spoilers nonetheless. Deaths and the like will be omitted, but I will mention the big battle at the end. Just a heads up.

Fiction Friday: Miscellaneous Notes From The Time An Alien Came To Band Camp Disguised As My Alto Sax

My first novella, City of Kaiju, is finally out! Available through Amazon and Books2Read. You can see a preview of the very first chapter here. Help support a fresh new author with a fantastic read this winter season.

Fiction Friday is a series where I talk about what I’ve been reading. Short Stories (and sometimes Novellas) are featured as in-between posts and the first Friday of the month will feature a new novel review. Today, I review Miscellaneous Notes From The Time An Alien Came To Band Camp Disguised As My Alto Sax by Tina Connolly.

 

One thing that drives me to stories is absurd titles. Just read the title of this short story. “Miscellaneous notes from the time an alien came to band camp disguised as my alto sax.” What is it about? Who is this alien? Why does he disguise himself as an alto saxophone? Who knows, but it’s a good flash story for a busy week.

So yeah, the title’s up there, written by Tina Connolly, as featured in Fantasy and Science Fiction Magazine. You can buy the issue featuring it here. It’s been a busy week, trying to get my work done, but I figured a fun flash story would suffice. Plus, it’s rare I review flash fiction anyway, so let’s see what this whole thing is about.
