Better Than Google

Thomson Gale Legal Forms is a database that you may never need to use.  But, if you need a legal form, don't want to buy it, don't know where to get it, than this is the database for you.  Legals forms are specialized forms that are not easy to find. If you need a form as simple as a lease, or a living will, do you need to consult an attorney?  You can get them at some mom and pop stationery stores, or large stores like Staples, but the selection is limited.  They are available on-line for a fee from Blumberg Forms, but who wants to pay?  Thomson Gale Legal Forms leases the content from a well known producer of legal forms called US Legal Forms.  These forms are categorized by topic, and easy to find and use.  They can be printed out in various formats, such as Adobe, Microsoft Word and Rich Text.  Some forms can be typed in when you view them for a neat and professional look.

Book Review: Witches of East End

 Witches of East End by Melissa del al Cruz

Recommended Age: 15 and up 

Reviewer: Rathna Ramanathan

“There is nothing I can do for her. Not without breaking the
bonds of the restriction. Not without putting myself in danger as
well,” thought Ingrid Beauchamp. Yet it seems that throughout Melissa
de la Cruz’s novel, “Witches of East End”, Ingrid, Freya, and Joanna

At the Border of SF: Magical Realism

Last month I wrote about crossover YA-- speculative fiction written for a teen audience that adults would also enjoy.  This month, I'd like to take another stroll outside of the SF genre shelves and introduce you to a close cousin: magical realism. 

Magical realism is essentially mainstream fiction with a difference.  Unlike urban fantasy, which uses a version of our world as a setting for fantasy (with all of fantasy's tropes and magical rules), magical realism brings an element of myth and fantasy into an otherwise mundane real-world setting and treats it as factual.  The result is something as weird and startling as finding a half-burnt simurgh feather on the ground while you're out walking the dog: the wondrous becomes (sometimes uncomfortably) possible and close and real
