The Catmage Chronicles
It's been hundreds of years since the Darkness last surfaced, a grim time when both humans and Catmages lost their lives. But now the Wild Ones work with humans again, and thirteen-year-old Andy Cohen gets the surprise of his life when a talking cat shows up in his front yard. Goldeneyes, a powerful Catmage, needs Andy’s help. In the exciting first installment of this new series, Meryl Yourish takes the reader into a world of magical cats, dark powers, and a boy who finds himself entangled in their war.

Two interesting pieces on the Walt-Mearsheimer anti-Israel screed, for your reading pleasure. The first is in the WSJ: A crop of Israel’s critics — most prominently Jimmy Carter and now Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer, the authors of “The Israel … Continue reading
The Israel Lobby is so dangerous to America, the authors of the widely-discredited paper have turned it into a book. And they’re taking it on the road. Only the Israel Lobby is preventing them from speaking, because you simply can’t … Continue reading
Sarah has finished book 7, and I said a few days ago that I’d wait until she finished the book before posting about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I guess I should wait for Larry to finish it, though, … Continue reading
For Harry Potter fans, here’s a video of the author reading the first chapter of The Deathly Hallows. She’s a good reader. Authors used to read their books as a matter of course in the days when authors went on … Continue reading
Really brutal, but worth it. Between that and the second season of Battlestar Galactica, Saturday was a no-posting day. Sleep would be nice now.
Someone posted images of the final chapter of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows online. I have no desire to read the ending before the novel is published, but be warned. If you don’t want to know, stay away … Continue reading
Couldn’t resist taking the Harry Potter quiz You scored as Harry Potter. You can be a little reckless and hot-headed at times, but a more brave and courageous friend would be hard to find. Harry Potter 95% Sirius Black 85% … Continue reading
Sgt. Mom wrote a book. So far, she hasn’t gotten a publisher, but that’s not stopping her. Now she’s going to try to self-publish, but that’s not inexpensive, either. So go check out Sgt. Mom’s post where she tells you … Continue reading

Well, let’s see. There’s the “Gilad Shalit deal is imminent” stuff. Nope. I don’t bother writing about that, because it’s crap. Israeli reporters know it’s crap, too. Get a load of this lede: A prisoner exchange deal for the release … Continue reading
There’s a post I never published, written after Kurt Vonnegut’s remarks in praise of suicide bombers. I never published it because I never quite finished it, and I never quite finished it because I couldn’t stand that the man I’d … Continue reading
An interview with Daniel Handler in Moment magazine, in which we discover the Baudelaires are Jewish. Has the series been influenced by Jewish history? I think there is something naturally Jewish about unending misery, yes. I mean, I guess naturally … Continue reading
Christianity today reviews three books on Israel, including Jimmy Carter’s execrable “analysis.” Carter is not an anti-Jewish ideologue. His views are not irrational, they are just unbalancedâ€”driven by an unquenchable private need for vindication. He cannot let go of the … Continue reading
