What the Earp?!: Fandom and the Season So Far from @kleffnotes

Admittedly I am probably not the person you would come to for a Wynonna Earp article. My Twitter is sort of a hodgepodge of non-fandom and fandom things, but you might not be able to figure out what fandoms I am a part of. This ties into my innate sort of fear of fandom, this has nothing to do with any particular fandom and I was, I think at least, a pretty big part of the Carmilla fandom for a period of time. When new content for that stopped coming out I sort of dropped out of the fandom realm. Continue reading “What the Earp?!: Fandom and the Season So Far from @kleffnotes”

Accidentals Book Review from @kleffnotes

Accidentals is the latest novel from Susan M. Gaines which uses the environments and how we leave our mark on the earth around us to explore our emotional and physical imprints. Environmental fiction is a genre that I admittedly do not read much of, though I have review some books that I feel fall under this umbrella. Many of them held a sort of mystical or fantastical basis, this one though stays more rooted firmly in the realm of traditional fiction. Continue reading “Accidentals Book Review from @kleffnotes”
