Fairytales and SciFic

It's really not surprising that with NaNoWriMo, I don't really have time for long blog posts. Plus I've been suffering from headaches lately, which makes it painful to think sometimes.

However, for you fairytale lovers, I just wanted to tip you off on the "Once Upon a Time" series from Simon & Schuster. They're written by many differant authors, and, though short, are entertaining and fun quick reads. Especially if you're sick and dying for good light fiction.

Also, if you're an X-Man fan, see if you can get ahold of some of the X-Men: First Class comics. They're cleaner and more appropriate than a lot of the newer comics, and they also are single-issue storylines which makes it possible to pick one up and not be totally lost. The premise of this title is the "unknown" adventures of the first class of X-Men: Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Angel and Iceman. It's pretty funny and especially good for anyone who may be new to the X-Men or Marvel universe. There are also some fun cameos from other Marvel titles like Fantastic Four, Spiderman and The Avengers.

I love X-men, so that is right down my ally. I'll have to check out the fairytales after NaNoWriMo.
Speaking of fairytales, I subscribed for the Ink and Fairydust newsletter, but so far I haven't received a copy. Yahoo groups confuese me to no end. Do I have to make my own Yahoo account to view the newsletter?

No, I don't believe I did.

Jeannine - then you should get it next month.

Bracie - I'm delighted you like my blog! I can be found on NaNoWriMo as Elenatintil, same as here.

*sigh* Next month seems so far away. Just curious, but is there anyway new readers can download previous editions?

Elenatintil said...

Yep! Go to www.issuu.com and do a search for inkandfairydust. Our last two issues are up there.
