    Original fairy tales? I’m so there! Can’t wait for that. And I’m glad you reminded me about the Doctor, because I bookmarked that video. Will watch it now!

    Hurley’s “God’s War” is one that I STILL need to read. Things I really need to stop putting off, part 627…

    Also, the cover art for “Blackberry Blue” is really eye-catching! Colour me intrigued!
