I have a great love for the unknown, conjecture and imagination and find many an effective escape in the imaginary and exploratory nature of fiction – I wanted to share a few cool, and very different to one another, blogs I follow that delve into (or map the minds behind) my favourite fictional worlds, display visual muses, and discuss various mental/visual wanderings.
*DISCLAIMER: I promise this isn’t a regular thing I’m gonna do – I just felt like these peeps deserved some lovin’ and hoped someone might see them here!*
1) Myles P: Ravings in Cinemascope
This guy shares his thoughts on Doctor Who (notably often from the wonderful before 2000’s time), discusses the merits of musical score that is so well integrated to a viewing experience you don’t realise how good it actually is and reviews cinematic experiences using hilarious screenshots that ALWAYS result in me stifling a burst of hysterical laughter at far-too-late-o’clock.
2) Kate Martyn: Up-and-coming Author
OK, this is going to seem like a marketing ploy, but she didn’t ask me to do this and she hasn’t got a paid agent! I wouldn’t say a word about her book here if I wasn’t so impressed by it, I would quietly sit back and say naught – however, her attention to historical accuracy without compromising pace and engagement is a rare feat and I will certainly be re-reading her first book many a time. It is romantic, but not cheaply so – there is a complexity to her writing and the world she creates that lifts it high above the average e-published text. With more than a few works-in-progress that I am eagerly awaiting…YOU SHOULD GO CHECK HER OUT!
I feel a great Kinship with this man and his photos, as they are quite alike to mine!
I love to read of his unique experiences and to see some of the places I have been fortunate enough to go from a different perspective, hear tales of them conveyed with a different voice; it is intriguing and entertaining. However, if you just like to see something eyecatching, lovely photos are lovely to view, hence it’s well worth a visit!
I have become aware of so much interesting literature through this blog that I now have a list of “future-reads” that will last me a good long while! Interesting insights into the mind of a writer, intelligent reviews and a real talent for picking a good yarn – open your mind to some excellent literary-fodder.
For those still reading, you are legends – if I could email you a medal, I would.
