Star Trek Crosswords. Book 4
Edited by John M. Samson
Pocket Books, New York
Review by Kitty Johnson
Me! Me! Call on me, Mr. Internet, call on me!!!
'Cause I bet I'm the only one here who has actually read Meyer Levin's The Old Bunch! And the reason I bring this up now is because I can only remember one brief vignette from it -- see, one of the main characters was developmentally disabled and the epiphany occurs when her son who is this brilliant genius who for some reason never suspects she was developmentally disabled until he looked at some of the crossword puzzles she was always working on and found they were nothing but letters randomly placed in the little boxes!!!!!

Bottle Fairy, Volume 2 (DVD)
Distributed by Geneon
DVD release date November 2005
Review by Leigh Anne Wilson
I'm not sure how this happened, but I managed to make it to the age of 36 relatively anime-free. This era recently ended with the viewing of the last 6 episodes of the Japanese children's television show Bottle Fairy. It seems the Bottle Fairies are four female fairies, sent to Earth in bottles with a small white winged cat to spend a year studying humanity, in some sort of human/fairy exchange student program. Their host family consists of the somewhat anonymous Sensai-san, a college student with sexy shaggy hair and an aw-shucks demeanor. Sensai-san, presumably, is to guide them toward humanity, teaching them about traditional and modern Japanese customs, and introducing them to different seasonal holidays and festivals. Most of their information, unfortunately for them, is actually given by Sensai-san's next door neighbor, Tamachan, whose certainty is persuasive, if sometimes misguided, and, typical of the first-grader she is, she takes great delight in issuing them humanizing tasks before getting distracted and wandering off to play video games.

Review by Kelly Taylor
First, let me get the hype out of the way -- Appleseed is more than a movie. It's the future of anime!
Okay, just had to get that off my chest. [more]

You don't have to be good at math or a whiz at statistics to enjoy this book. It's a collection of quizzes on topics fascinating to the human condition; Life or Death, Health & Happiness, Love & Marriage, and everything in between. Roger Schlaifer has collected the odds on everything to do with these diverse topics and arranged them in a humorous multiple choice format to test your knowledge of Life As We Know It. [more]
