Word Weavers - Like to Read? Like to Watch Movies?
"Word Weavers is looking for a dependable book and movie buff who would be willing to post weekly movie reviews. However, the movie must be based on a book and you must have both read the book and seen the movie. The reviews would then consist of your comparison of book to movie. This includes all books to movies ever made, it does not have to be new books into movies. For more information, please email: email@example.com with Movie Review in the headline or message Jenna at http://www.myspace.com/weaversofwords"

Dusk Before the Dawn - Guest review at SF Signal

Theirs is the top group SciFi Blog in the verse, and it entertains me greatly (this is where my son and I guffawed all night at the Mr. T World of Warcraft commercials) ~ Larry"
