10 Characters to Make You Feel Better

10 Characters to Make You Feel Better Those who follow VBC on Twitter may know things are stressful these days here at the VBC HQ. One of my close family members has a rare brain cancer — complete with experimental treatments. (He has the best doctors and is in great spirits.)

Character cagematches? Who should throw down?

In our If You Like post on Unholy Ghosts and Mind Games, we wondered what would happen if the main characters of Stacia Kane and Carolyn Crane’s novels threw down. The resulting Twitter battle between the two fantastic authors had me giggling. It went a little something like this: @StaciaKane: Oh, please. Chess could kick Justine’s ass.

Review: Mind Games by Carolyn Crane

Review: Mind Games by Carolyn Crane Mind Games (Disillusionist #1) Carolyn Crane Published: March 2010 (Spectra) Purchase at: Book Depository or Amazon Rating (out of 5): 4 stars Carolyn Crane is incredibly clever or she’s neurotic. Either way, the result is a creative urban fantasy landscape and the surprisingly purposeful supernatural talent of disillusionment. The disillusionists are overwhelmed by fears — social collapse,...
