Quick recap: In order to assume the role of the Fisher King so that Duncan could pass over and retrieve the Holy Grail, Bridgette shot herself. Having prevented Galahad from procuring the Grail, Duncan must now try and save his Gran. Through a bit of ingenuity and adherence to lore, he beseeches the Ladies of the Lake for the ultimate Arthurian weapon: Excalibur.

After the Second Unification War, Mal was assigned to bring in his Ma in return for his freedom. (See The Outlaw Ma Reynolds.) Through some crafty finagling, Mal came out a winner. The prize: Mal is a newly-minted sheriff. Plot twist, huh?

Folktales are important. They teach us about the many faces of good and evil. They teach us about ourselves and the foibles of humanity. They are cautionary. They pique the darkest recesses of our imagination to scare us into making wise decisions. Fanbase Press, with its #StoriesMatter initiative, is inviting yours truly and all of its staff to dig into why stories matter to us, and in broader strokes, what they mean to our culture, our history, or whatever the story inspires us to talk about. With Folklords, I can’t think of a better writer or a better story to begin delving into this goal.

Horror is a genre that needs to be broken down into more apt sub-genres to be truly understood. From the slasher to the psychological horror, it's a genre with countless deviations. But, then again, sometimes, there are stories that can be described as pure horror. There's no subset or distraction - just the creeping horror that has been with us since primordial times. That's how I'd describe Road of Bones.

I’ve really been dragging my feet on Stranger Things lately. It took me longer than I’d like to admit to get around to watching season 3, and I’ve utterly failed to keep up to date on the latest comics. I’d just about given up trying to catch up when Stranger Things: Zombie Boys caught my attention. Its small scale reminded me of the tight scope of the first season I’d originally fell in love with, and I decided to give it a chance.

I’ve spent a lot of time recently thinking about my favorite fictional universes - about what science fiction specifically means to me. It might be because the Skywalker saga came to an end, and that was one of the big stories that first captured my imagination when I was no older then 6. There’s Ray Bradbury, the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender and Korra, Alejandro Jodorowsky, to name a few. Amidst those few and far between, one name from recent years continues to find space in my mind, and that is the words and worlds of Matt Kindt.

The following is an interview with author Charlie N. Holmberg regarding the release of her latest book. The Will and the Wilds. In this interview, Fanbase Press Editor-in-Chief Barbra Dillon chats with Holmberg about the inspiration behind the story, the creative process in bringing the story to life, what she hope that readers will take away from the book, and more!

I've spent a lifetime skittering along the edges of the Magic: The Gathering franchise. Just about everyone I known has carried a deck with them at one time or another, and I’ve dabbled with the lore on more than one occasion. In the past, I’ve bounced off of it because of the sheer size and complexity of that lore, but recently I’ve been doing a bit of reading up on the franchise and decided I wanted to give it another try. As luck would have it, Magic: The Gathering - Chandra seemed like the opportunity to do just that.
