Mur sez, "JC Hutchins brought us the killer podcast trilogy 7th Son, but after the novels were done, he invited eight authors from podcasting to write in his world. The audio anthology, called 7th Son, OBSIDIAN, comes out in May and features stories that follow random Americans through the nationwide 2 week blackout that happens in the trilogy.

Are we done with capsule coffee makers yet? Sure, they’re easy. But they are not so easy on the environment, and it’s debatable whether they actually make a better cup. Luckily, there’s never been a better time to switch back to the good old reliable drip method – especially when drip coffeemakers have quietly been […]
