If you live near or around Minneapolis this weekend and are looking for some last minute Christmas gifts, come check out the trunk Show Regan’s Brain and This Charming Man Cave are having on Saturday Dec. 19th from 11am to 6pm.  You’ll find some deep discounts on items in my shop as well as a […]

Original Dune Trilogy in Book Club Editions

I’ve been a huge fan of Frank Herbert’s Dune for a long time.  I haven’t ventured past the original trilogy, but from what I hear, that’s just fine by me.  I even love the David Lynch film for the way it looks and feels.  It never bothered me that it doesn’t adhere to the books. […]

My dad built some great […]

Tolkien, Herbert, and Asimov
