A Note from the Editor-in-Chief

A Note From the Editor-in-Chief WHY WAX & WANE? Our idea for an anthology of witch stories arose out of seeing a real lack of satisfying witch anthologies out there. Christine and I wanted to really push the envelope of fictional witches, to encompass not just the...

REVIEW: The Hateful Eight

I really, really wanted to like THE HATEFUL EIGHT. I’m a fan of various Tarantino works, despite his various nervous tics as a director. I absolutely love DJANGO UNCHAINED — I think that’s his masterpiece. INGLORIOUS BASTERDS is a great time, and I even...

REVIEW: Interstellar

REVIEW: Interstellar
