Firefly: The Game by Gale Force 9
Firefly: The Game

kismet, February 12, 2014

This game is surprisingly good for a media tie-in! Game pieces are well made, and play is complex with a good balance between strategy and luck. We played with a couple of folks who hadn't seen Firefly (I know, right?), and they loved it. Went out the next day and bought the series!

Kobo Glo eReader by Kobo
Kobo Glo eReader

kismet, November 19, 2012

I never wanted an ereader, but the more I read about the Kobo, the more I coveted it. First off, the light feature is amazing. It brings even illumination with very little ambient light, so my night time reading doesn't keep others awake. Second, the open format allows you to upload from a variety of sources, like the library, other devices, or the scads of free books available online. You can have virtually any classic for free from Project Gutenberg! Finally, Adobe Digital can translate just about any text document into an ebook. Scripts, work documents, presentations...anything you need on the go can be uploaded onto the reader. No more lugging the laptop around to access word documents on the fly. I've had it for about a week, and it's already changed the way I work. It has more useful features than the more expensive readers on the market, and I'm not tied to one source of ebooks.

Disappearing TARDIS Mug by Unemployed Philosopher's Guild
Disappearing TARDIS Mug

kismet, May 29, 2012

This mug is Fantastic! When you add a hot drink, the Tardis disappears from the London streets and reappears in Space (also known as the other side of the mug...). And it comes in a sweet gift box. It could only be improved by sound effects. And a Doctor to pour your tea!

The Devouring
The Devouring

kismet, February 23, 2009

Reggie likes scary stories, but when a dark tale comes to life one winter's night she must confront her own fears to save the little brother she loves. Devouring reads like a young adult Stephen King; by turns creepy, gross and frightening. If you, like Reggie, love to be scared, you will love this book.

Dangerous Angels: The Weetzie Bat Books (Weetzie Bat Books) by Francesca Lia Block
Dangerous Angels: The Weetzie Bat Books (Weetzie Bat Books)

kismet, September 22, 2008

A beautifully lyrical series of stories which follows a cool chosen family as they find their way in a world that is sometimes unkind. Block's writing is amazingly tactile, perhaps due to her background in poetry. This is one of those books that I will reread again and again.
