There’s little to say by way of introduction except that (1.) Barbara Hambly writes the way I’ve always wanted to write, (2.) she personally maintains an endlessly amusing Facebook fan page, and (3.) she is surprisingly gracious about interview requests from strangers with dubious journalistic credentials.

Misadventures of an Unlikely TCW Apologist

October 17, 2012 Professor Jango 0

I have been a Star Wars fan for over a decade now. This is no huge accomplishment given that I’m almost 25 years old now and many people have been Star Wars fans their entire lives (or at least since the saga first hit the silver screen). I took quickly
