Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

Richard A. Knaak’s Cuchulainn (The Hound).

   ATLANTA, GA – May, 18th  2013 - Sea Lion Books announces the graphic novel publication of the legendary Cuchulainn in a new graphic novel series from bestselling author Richard A. Knaak  --THE HEART OF THE HOUND.

At birth he was called Setanta, yet he is known to all as Cuchulainn…the Hound of Cullan. It was a name he had earned as a youth, slaying the savage, gargantuan pet of the Lord Cullan.

His bravery had earned him much admiration, many friends and many enemies. King Conchobar had been a good friend and mentor to his long-lost nephew, having him trained by the greatest warriors, then commanding him to marry the beautiful Emer, daughter of the Lord Forgal.

It is a future many would envy…so long as they remained unaware of the other future also pursuing the young Hound of Cullan. A future rapidly overtaking him…THE HEART OF THE HOUND.

In an modern yet ancient telling of a Celtic legend, author Richard A. Knaak brings to life the greatest hero in Irish literature. Cuchulainn was a legendary fighter, welding his spear Gae-Bhlog, a spear almost as iconic as Arthur's Excalibur. He single-handedly defended Ireland against an invasion by overwhelming forces that rode with dark magic.

His fury in battle was called riastrad and those who were witness to it, never forgot the fearsomeness of it.

A story told for hundreds of years, THE HEART OF THE HOUND is finding new life and new tales in the twenty-first century in the talented hands of Richard A. Knaak and art by Carlo Rispoli.

"We are extremely fortunate that this Celtic icon is being brought to life by the talented Richard A. Knaak. His ability to world create will reveal the legend of Cuchulainn to a new generation." said Derek Ruiz, Executive Vice President and Publisher of Sea Lion Books.

HEART OF THE HOUND  is the first book in a series of three graphic novels scheduled to be released online as a free web comic on the Sea Lion Books website: ( ) beginning in early 2013.
