Enjoy some Mayhem & Magic!

Our blog is meant to evoke fun with the magic of myths, folklore, movies and the mayhem of murder and madness. We have to keep it interesting so if you like different genres of movies and books then you're at the right blog. Our authors are a wide range of experts and our readers know what is top of the line in their favorite genres. Sometimes we post recipes that might be fun to try if a culinary author has one in her book that we think is especially yummy or one that Terri and I have created and want to share with you. Enjoy Guest Blogger Alice Duncan's monthly muse on her books and writing mysteries.

Plus you won't want to miss our book reviews, author interviews or our guest bloggers. So grab your favorite beverage then join us for some magic and mayhem! The good news is that you don't have to leave the house or your comfy chair. We have something for everyone's taste and every month we have a different topic for our bloggers: ones we feel that might be useful in your own writing and reader points of view. Not to mention, life in general. So join us and be sure to have a notebook handy as your to-be-read pile will grow as you add books, recipes, movies and t.v. series you won't want to miss. Not to mention folktales, myths or ideas you may wish to explore. Be careful what you wish for because on mayhemandmagic2 you just might find it.

The Walking Dead

I have loved this show since the first episode.  Survival stories amidst madness and characters to love and hate.   It gets better and better as it continues.  Carl is growing up to be a badass.  Rick is losing his mind.  Michone is amazing.  The Govenor (Who would have known David Morrisey could do a perfect american southern accent?) totally insane and evil.  Moral decisions constantly being made.  Bad things happen to good people.  Good people take care of others.  In assaults the senses and the soul.

So, this weekend, I finally started reading the comics it was based on (Compendium one - issues 1-12).  It was weird to see them look different - I keep seeing the actors.  And I DID know there were differences between the books and show but was suprised at how MUCH happened during those first issues.  These story arcs - took several seasons on tv.  Of course, that tells you how much the stories have been fleshed out and expanded on for tv (in a good way).

TWD is NOT for everyone - there are blood and guts galore (literally) but of all the zombie stuff out there, this is by far my favorite.
