    Posted on June 24, 2013 by Tao

    So, we've added a new payment method to the site for BitCoins. If you don't know what Bitcoins are, that's okay - you don't have to! If you do, and its your preferred form of currency, well we now take it!
    Okay, okay. Bitcoins are a form of electronic currency that are not regulated (currently) nor [...]

    In the Name of the King poster

    We know of Uwe Boll right? The man who has somehow managed to make a career out of buying video game movie rights and the making bad movies from them? Well, if you've never seen a movie of his, consider yourself lucky.  He's generally a really, really bad [...]

  • The Wheel of Time Series: A Retrospective

    Posted on June 21, 2013 by Tao

    Missing 3 books! Missing 3 books!

    Now that Robert Jordans’ (finished by Brandon Sanderson) Wheel of Time series is over, I figured I’d do a review of the series itself and give my point of view. Let me state that I started following the series when it first launched, ages ago and have followed it till completion. I should also state that I’m the kind of reader who will, with impunity and no sense of guilt skip tracts of description if I find them boring.

    Obviously, some spoilers ahead. Continue Reading

    Posted on June 15, 2013 by Tao

    First, the trailer:

    Okay, now I'll admit - I haven't seen the first movie for the Hobbit yet.  Yeah, I know - why not? Isn't it the best thing ever?  I have no idea, since I haven't seen it.  Now, don't get me wrong - I intend to see it at some point on DVD.  I'm [...]

  • Bruce Lee ain't Geek!

    Posted on June 12, 2013 by Tao

    Be water

    Some of you might have seen the Bruce Lee items we stock in Fortress Geek.  You might even be saying, Bruce Lee ain't Geek!
    Sure, I'll agree that he's not exactly what we think of as geek culture. After all, we mostly think of geek culture consisting of comics / games / Science Fiction [...]

  • Book Series Review - Chronicles of Elantra

    Posted on June 5, 2013 by Tao

    The Chronicles of Elantra is written by Michelle K. Sagara (aka Michelle Sagara or Michelle West) and is a fantasy universe revolving around Private Kaylin Neya, a young woman serving in the Hawks (a police officer) in a city ruled by a Dragon.  One of my favorite (and 'to buy') series right now, Sagara balances both the fantasy and character development aspects of her world very well.
