Book Review: Sex in Cyberspace (Men Who Pay For Sex) by Sarah Earle and Keith Sharp

They say prostitution is the oldest profession, therefore those men who visit prostitutes must be the oldest Customer Demographic, but what do we know about them? The majority of research done has focused on prostitutes, very little on the men who use their services. Sarah Earle and Keith Sharp make these men the focus of their research and raise some fascinating points. This book is written from a sociological study, looking specifically at men who use the internet to find sex workers. Ear

CSR Discussion Day: Miles to Go by Comicality

Can you believe tomorrow is Halloween? It's true! In honor of the spooky season, I picked a story that also dipped into the paranormal and featured an author that has a variety of stories in the genre if that's your thing! I hope you enjoyed Miles to Go this month, now enjoy this interview I sent to @Comicality before you share your comments below.  Who was the real villain, ACME or Wile E. Coyote? Hehehe, Wile E. Coyote! All the way! They sold it...but YOU bought it, dude. Repeatedly,

Weekly Wrap Up (Oct. 22 - Oct. 28)

Just a reminder to all, you have less than 2 months to get your favourite GA staff member their Christmas present.  Maybe I shouldn't say that, I will be like Harry Potter on Christmas morning receiving presents from his Aunt and Uncle and lovely cousin Dudley! One year a 50 pence coin which is 60 cents USD, a toothpick and finally a single tissue . Believe it or not, that is my first HP reference in my life   Now if you couldn't wait for Christmas, Val had an early present for you again th

Of Pride and Power Chapter 8 is live

Chapter 8 Well, there's a lot to unpack here. Why a hot spring trip, you might ask in the middle of a journey? Call it a nod to Japanese culture that inspired my story, but it is customary to have a nice relaxing bath before all the tension. For fans of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, either Anime or Manga, you know exactly what I mean as the main character would enjoy a relaxing soak after a fierce battle. It's a bit indulgent, but fun nonetheless. As to the heart of the stor

Book Review: Showtime 2020: The Collected Works of Newham Writers

This anthology is a collection from a writers workshop in East London. As such is has been designed to showcase the writing coming out of this workshop, and so is a very mixed anthology. This isn’t just a collection of short stories only, or just poetry or only essays. This collection contains many different styles of writing. There are short stories here, but also poetry, essays and even drabbles (100 word stories). The strength here is this collection’s variety. If you don’t want to read

Translating a Translation of a Translation along with the Original Translation

So, I think more of us grew up with Umberto Tozzi's music in different languages. He wrote the original songs covered by the 80's hits Gloria (Laura Branigan) and Claridad (Menudo). A few months ago, I bought a few of his albums and came across a song I grew up with in Spanish that was ALSO originally penned and sung in Italian: De Que Me Sirven Estas Manos (A Cosa Servono le Mani) Tozzi's quite the poet, bending both Italian and Spanish to his will in his lyrics, and this song is one of hi

Paranormal Deep Dive

Paranormal is the melting pot of several sub-genres that got large enough to form it's own home.  Generally speaking, Paranormal is urban fantasy that limits itself generally to ghosts, vampires, werewolves, shifters, and other creatures.  It should be noted that Paranormal has strongly established tropes in its sub-genres.  The meta-humans in Paranormal are not typically monsters.  You'll find the monster versions of these meta-humans in Horror.  Research of your chosen sub-genre is strongly ad
