THRILLER REVIEW: THE PHOENIX YEAR BY DAVID L. BLOND

  
The Phoenix Year 
David L. Blond
Publisher: Wattle Publishing
Published: Out Now!
Pages: 332 

Review by : Sandra Scholes

Well versed in the use of predicting the data for global economic models, Blond started his career working for the United Nations in Geneva in the 70s and currently works as a private economic consultant where he analyses economic data. It is likely his job rubbed off on him as he has created a novel, though fiction is build as a could have happened scenario where a bunch of billionaires can change the world if they put their minds to  it. "...from out of the fire, would rise a new order, like the legend of the phoenix. There would emerge a new world, a new super economy..."

LGBT ARTIST INTERVIEW WITH PATRICK FILLION OF CLASS COMICS

Interview with Patrick Fillion of Class Comics

What is noticeable first hand are the aspects of realism mixed with the purely cartoon inspired hunks that Patrick brings to life. In his work for Boytoons, his comic characters from Storms of Arun, Deimos, Ghost Boy and Hot Chocolate such as Torbus Jecks exude a masculine sexuality to be proud of complete with a torso to die for and a posing pouch to worship at.

Like a modern day Tom of Finland, Patrick brings us the exaggerate male body, strong line work contours every muscle from pectorals to abs and beyond. From smiling winged Eros to a hot, well endowed Prince of Eternia, his work is entirely irresistible. Patrick took time out of his new project (mention it) to chat to Japanreviewer.

MURDER MYSTERY REVIEW: ENTROPY BY ROBERT RAKER

  

Entropy 
Writer: Robert Raker
Publisher: Wattle Publishing
Published: Out Now!
Pages: 232


Entropy. Lack of order or predictability; gradual decline into disorder.

The bodies of four children surface and four people seem to be connected to them, even going so far as to try and solve who might have committed the crimes. A diver, musician, agent and model could find the clues and discover the key to finding the murderers responsible for snuffing out the lives of these children. Rather than this being a continual novel, this is more of a series of short stories that all link together with a similar theme, but different outcome at the end.
