3 Star Trek films you never knew existed (probably)

Star Trek: Axanar (trailer)

This trailer is totally awesome and I am sooooo watching the film when it’s released. Also, don’t miss out on the Prelude to Axanar short, also on YouTube.

Star Trek: Axanar is coming out some time next year (2016).

Star Trek: Horizon (opening scene)

Star Trek: Horizon is a full length fan film set it the Enterprise era (think Scott Bakula as Captain Archer). To be perfectly honest, I can’t say I really like the Star Trek: Horizon trailer but the opening scene makes up for it. Alas, Horizon is another one we have to wait for, but only until February next year (2016).

Star Trek: Aurora

Ok, so it’s not a movie, but it’s still really good, so check it out.

And now, for something a little different…

…the Star Wars: Dark Resurrection Vol. 0 trailer. It’s an Italian-made fan film (in Italian, but there are English subtitles), and it looks really good. There’s also a Vol. 1 and funding is currently being raised for Vol. 2, so we won’t be left on a cliffhanger.

Riviera Film, the filmmakers behind it, have a number of other great sci-fi films on their YouTube channel. If you like Dark Resurrection don’t forget to check it out!

The Ugly Princess by Henderson Smith

Disclaimer: I received this book in exchange for an honest review

3.5/5 stars

I love The Ugly Princess for its message and for having a truly ugly heroine. It’s message, that beauty is only skin deep, came through strong, right from the first page. I especially loved how happy the heroine, Olive, was to be ugly in exchange for her other gifts and how she rejoiced in every new boil and wart.

‘Superman, as long as I have you here, just answer one thing for me: Why tights? Why a cape? You’re a grown man. Don’t you feel ridiculous?’

Tempus & Superman, "New Adventures Of Superman"

Update: Skin (Hero, book 2)

Ok, so, I chucked out the 15k words I’d written for book 2. Again. I think this is the 4th time I’ve changed the entire plot (well, not the entire plot, just the specifics), but, trust me, this storyline is going to be way more awesome.
