Volume 1: Tarnsman of Gor

I picked up this book to see what all the fuss was about (re: Gorean lifestyle) to be blithely surprised.

The Chronicles of Counter-Earth Volume 1 was one of the very few books I simply could not put down. Thus I read it very quickly, falling in love with John Norman's prose. It was not only easy to read but thankfully not dumbed down. In the least, it felt unique.

I find this book to be an excellent example of old-school fantasy in the vein of Jack Vance's The Dragonmasters. A little sci-fi mixed with fantasy which some call Sword & Planet.

Upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies

What do we have here?

Avengers 2 was the same formula as the first movie but the humour was more muted. It was fun.

Ant Man appears like it could easily flop. Like many of the MCU's characters, they aren't the original from the comic books. They are just the current or latest incarnations. Is this Ant-Man enough? Does the story scream stupid? There are a few red flags however the character itself is solid. Small but solid. Get your insecticide ready.
