Jack Of Shadows by Roger Zelazny (book review).

Best known for his ‘Amber Chronicles’, Roger Zelazny (1937-1995) produced a string of other Science Fiction and crime novels, often dealing with metaphysical or religious themes.

Mary (horror movie trailer with added Gary Oldman).

Here’s a rather scary horror movie in which Gary Oldman buys a sailing yacht, Mary, to take his family around the world, only to find it has a few extra passengers you really don’t want to have sailing along with you. Is the vessel’s name a nod to the ship the Mary Celeste, I wonder? […]
