Fusenews: The Bear grumbleth “mum mum”

DarthVaderSummerReading

Honestly, I don’t quite know why I even bother doing Fusenews posts on Saturdays.  As you might suspect, my readership dips considerably when the weekends hit, but an old Fusenews post is like a week old fish.  Time does it no favors.  As such, I shall cut through my seething envy of everyone at BookExpo [...]

Las Vegas Ladies

Sometimes I feel like a children’s literature news lint ball.  I just roll about my merry way, picking up the stray bits of ephemera that happen to fall within my purview.  Alternate metaphors: We would have also have accepted lint roller and/or dust bunny. Let us begin today with some movie news.  If you’re like [...]
