There is no question that Agatha Christie is the GOAT. She is the best-selling novelist of all time, and she is third behind only Shakespeare's works and the Bible in the rankings of the world's most-widely published books. Her skills as a mystery writer know no bounds, and her books were some of the first books I...

virology, titan books
Virology (written by Ren Warom) takes on the same cyberpunk and mind-engulfing persona as its prequel, Escapology. Core is now a pit of darkness, and Slip has taken complete control.

Review: ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets: Art of the Film’

I'm a fan of companion books, mostly because I'm usually interested in behind-the-scenes stories, original conception art, and costume design sketches, especially for films I love and am passionate about.
