When Doctor Who Gets Lost In The Forest, It REALLY Gets Lost

When Doctor Who Gets Lost In The Forest, It REALLY Gets Lost

Another week, another Doctor Who story that stretches the limits of the show's format — to the point where it's hard to say if it's a total work of genius, or just kind of a weird mess. Unfortunately, this week's "In The Forest of the Night" chases a ton of ideas that it never quite catches up with.

Looking for name and author of story I read many years ago.

I remember reading this story in middle school over 20 years ago. It was about a priest or priest in training in a primitive society. He has to go on a journey of sorts too a forbidden part of the world. Turns out that this part of the world is a post nuclear war new York city and he goes home with this knowledge knowing it has to be kept secret. Does anyone know what the hell i'm talking about?

It's just in time for the Canadian election, where notorious politician Rob Ford's older brother Doug is currently polling pretty well in the Toronto mayoral race.

The true Power Rangers are coming to the West for the first time ever

The true Power Rangers are coming to the West for the first time ever

If you were a child of the 90's, looking at the picture above will probably illicit the response of 'Yeah, Power Rangers!' - but you're only kinda-sorta right. These are really the Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger, and they're making their way to the west for the very first time.

Aang’s Grandkids Get Their Own Adventure On Legend Of Korra

Aang's Grandkids Get Their Own Adventure On Legend Of Korra

One of the particularly great things about Legend of Korra Book 4 is the way it has managed to, ahem, balance the show's enormous cast. In this week's episode, Tenzin's kids take center stage when they journey to find Korra. And, in the meantime, we learn exactly what made Korra's former antagonists villains.

Horse Tranquilizer Can Briefly Restore Pleasure To Depressed Patients

Horse Tranquilizer Can Briefly Restore Pleasure To Depressed Patients

Current medications for depression, like SSRIs, do little to address a patient's inability to experience pleasure, a symptom known as "anhedonia." But ketamine – a recreational drug and common veterinary anesthetic – seems to offer sufferers of depression a renewed capacity for enjoyment .

“Amnesia” — Official Trailer

Starring Kevin Sorbo, Martin Klebba and Andrew Roth as Allan Carter, the man with “Amnesia”.

Any recommendation on sci-fi fiction which is intense/disturbing because of the antagonist-creature or the harm they cause?

Just looking for something on the disturbing/fun side. The only example I can think of (and a pretty tame one) is the Stephen King novella The Mist because of the unusual creatures/bugs in the story.

Basically, I am looking for a good story with wet, creepy sci-fi violence, not American Psycho torture.

Edit: I am thinking the book should contain the use of the word "gelatinous" at least once.

Thanks!

That Firefly Card game is now an actual Card Game

That Firefly Card game is now an actual Card Game

The internet's desperate bid to ensure every part of Firefly makes its way into real life (I'm sure there's a Browncoat somewhere out there building their own Firefly-class in their shed) continues with a new card game based on the weird Space-fruit-poker the crew of the Serenity play on the show. Tall Card, anyone?
