Clockwork Wonderland

So, my favorite book as a kid was Alice in Wonderland. I pretty much love everything related to it, including the Looking Glass Wars series, Wonderland the comic book, American Mcgee’s Alice, and of course the new Alice movies. So, of course I had to include Clockwork Wonderland. If you’ve ever looked over the wholeContinue reading “Clockwork Wonderland”

Potters Field Six

This anthology sounds so delightfully creepy, I can’t even begin to tell you. Potters Field Six wants stories about unmarked graves. It doesn’t have to be just about a potter’s field, of course, there are tons of historical mass graves. Think of the Catacombs in Paris. Honestly, this contest is making me rethink writing forContinue reading “Potters Field Six”

Markets, Pantheon Issue #9, Hestia

Something that doesn’t come up much here on Paper Beats World, but does come up pretty often in my house is my love of mythology. Greek is my favorite, but I also love Egyptian, Norse and Roman. Even though everyone knows that Roman is just Greek with different titles. So when I found Pantheon, IContinue reading “Markets, Pantheon Issue #9, Hestia”
