Five Fictional Islands I wish Were Real

A little while ago I was invited to take part in this huge collaboration called Hyrule: See the sights, hear the sounds. It was organised by Matt over at Normal Happenings, who wanted to create a massive, travel type guide to the Legend of Zelda universe, so of course I had to get involved –…

An A-Z of Halloween Movies to watch this October

Every year I make a list of Horror movies to get me into the Halloween spirit, but I’ve seen them far too many times now that I know most of them off by heart – so I’ve decided to make a new list this year. I thought it would be fun to set myself a…
