Will be gone for a couple of days…

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Just a note to our readers… I will be gone for a couple of days, so consider this an open thread if you like. I am going into the hospital for routine surgery and should be back no later than Friday.

Hold the fort for me while I’m gone and all prayers are appreciated.

Warm Regards,

Book Review – The Wyvern in the Wilderlands

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Purchase at Amazon

Recently, I received a copy of The Wyvern in the Wilderlands by Eddie Patin. I’m a huge fan of Larry Correia’s Monster Hunter books, so this looked interesting, to say the least. I was not disappointed either.

The book is a wild ride between universes. I don’t want to give the book away, but let’s just say you will constantly be trying to figure out how the hero is even still alive. The action is very fast-paced and if I were playing the lead in this, I wouldn’t have survived five minutes dealing with the monsters that our hero Jason beats time and again. The life expectancy in some of these wild places is less than zero.

The book captivated me from start to finish and that is not easy to do. I plan on reading the whole series and after you jump into the book, you will too. Rarely do I see characters described so vividly that I can fully picture them the way I do in this book. And you will love not only the story but the ending. It’s a rollercoaster from top to bottom. Even my husband is reading it.

If you are into fantasy and sci-fi, this book is definitely for you. If you love monster hunting, this series is excellent.

Here is the synopsis from Amazon:

Explore other Universes.
Hunt Deadly Monsters.
Make a Profit.

Jason always loved dinosaurs as a kid. He never thought that one day he’d be trapped on a dinosaur world struggling to stay alive.

This is the story of Jason Leaper of Earth, universe 934. In the mind-bending expanse of parallel universes and higher dimensions, the unexpected death of an alternate Jason Leaper launches our hero’s boring life into a wild adventure of survival, fantastic creatures, and bizarre other worlds!

All Jason Leapers across the infinite multiverses have the ability to rift–to open portals through other dimensions to shift between alternate realities. And when the last survivors of the Reality Rifters–an interdimensional Monster Hunter crew–come looking for Jason 934, the directionless man suddenly finds his latent powers awakened and his life is changed forever. When he is suddenly teleported to the Wilderlands, a vicious and primordial alternate Earth overrun with dinosaurs, primitive savages, and epic wilderness, Jason is cast into a visceral struggle for basic survival and needs to figure out his rifting powers in a hurry if he expects to get home. And when the monster hunting planeswalkers finally catch up to him, will Jason Leaper 934 slay the apex predator in the region and take his place in the Reality Rifters?

The Wyvern in the Wilderlands is a fast-paced survival story and is the first book in the “Monster Hunting for Fun and Profit” series about Jason Leaper 934 and his planes-walking Reality Rifters, Monster Hunters for hire. If you love books about guns, survival, vicious and terrible mythical monsters, cosmic horror, time travel, DINOSAURS, and exploring strange new worlds … read this today!

If you are looking for a great present to give others this holiday season, I would definitely recommend these books. You’ll be hooked in no time. If you are old enough to remember “Sliders” and “Quantum Leap” and you loved those shows, you will love this book. If not, then you are in for a new treat that will make you want to watch those shows.

Happy monster hunting! You can get your copy at Amazon.

Baseball Hall of Fame and Sour Grapes

By: T.F. Stern | Self-Educated American

With winter comes the inevitable doldrums while awaiting Spring Training.  In only three short weeks pitchers and catchers from every team will report to get things going as the 2018 season promises to bring a smile back on our faces.  We can only watch so many repeats of The Natural, For Love of the Game, Major League, The Rookie and of course The Pride of the Yankees; couldn’t leave that one out, before we go stark raving mad.

I noticed on one of the social media forums an interest in who should or shouldn’t be considered as candidates for induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Everyone has a favorite ball player and reasons why each deserves that highest of honors; but then again there are just as many who would argue, some vehemently, that because of ‘this, that or the other’ certain players should never be considered (Sour Grapes?).

A few names come to mind on the ‘this, that or the other’ list of players; those who’ve done something unforgivable, an unpardonable sin against the game which banishes them into outer darkness; well, maybe not quite that far; but certainly keeps them out of Cooperstown.

Start with everyone’s favorite bad guy, Pete Rose, who committed the unpardonable sin of betting on baseball games.  Never mind that he might well be one of the best players to ever put on a uniform…that’s not to be considered; he violated a rule so that’s it, he’s out  (Sour Grapes?).

A couple of others stick out; Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds.  Their names are sullied due to the ‘alleged’ use of banned substances that may or may not have lifted their natural abilities to such an extent as to make their careers stand out.  In the case of Bonds there was also his use of a specially designed arm hinge which ‘may’ have assisted his ability to lift the ball at just the right trajectory to get it over the wall and out of almost any stadium.  So if you mix that with physical enhancement steroids you can become a home run junkie (Sour Grapes?).

Then there’s Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire; both could knock the cover off of a baseball; but was it their own strength or was it due to steroid use?  Sosa also got caught with a corked bat when it snapped in half during a game (Sour Grapes?).

I’m sure the list could be extended with lots of names; ball players who for one reason or another ‘fell from grace’ with a portion of the public.  These individuals will never get the 75% of votes required as they appear on the ballot form.

Here’s my solution; a way of honoring the dishonored if you will.

Create a special room at Cooperstown, call it the Asterisk Room (that’s a joke, I say, that’s a joke… in honor of the 61* attached to Roger Maris by those who couldn’t stand his hitting one more Home Run than Babe Ruth; …but of course he did have more games to do it in).

In this Asterisk Room (Sour Grapes Room) we could identify the great players who totally screwed themselves from being in with all the other truly great players.  Custodians responsible for cleaning and maintenance are going to love the new annex as they clean spit off the glass more often; some folks never forgive or forget.  That said; these players deserve a place in Cooperstown.

I got through the entire article and never once mentioned the hair brained idea of speeding up the game to keep fans interested…oh please; don’t get me started.
