I think Dirty Devil isn’t the right name for this costume

Dirty Devil Costume

I wonder what possesses someone when they come up with names for costumes. Is it a need to be obvious? Blunt and to the point? Or is it simply that they threw darts at a board and looked to see what they hit? The sad thing is, in so many cases, the name they use …

A Review of In Judgment of Della by Glen and Vivian Gilbert

In Judgment of Della by Glen and Vivian Gilbert

There are some stories in which you must, always, be paying attention in order to try and define what is happening in the story, the characters and the world around them.
