Poet Jonathan Goh Launches ELUDORANPoet Jonathan Goh Launches ELUDORAN
by BWW News Desk - Jul 30, 2015

Poet Jonathan Goh's recent publication, 'Eludoran: The Legend of Lorelei in a Geste of Grave Misconceptions' (published by Partridge Singapore) has earned the distinction of longest fantasy rhyming poem ever written in Singapore. Dedicated as a tribute to his late grandfather, 'Eludoran' is a commentary of stereotypical fantasy fiction comprising three acts in 44 chapters. This numbering is not a coincidence; it is intended as a subtle reference of its subject matter since the number four in Chinese cultures is synonymous with death. Inspired by the works of earlier fantasy authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien and Brian Jacques, 'Eludoran' offers its audience a darker perspective into the world of animal fantasy. (more...)

Copyhouse Press Announces New Fantasy Novel by Argent HellionCopyhouse Press Announces New Fantasy Novel by Argent Hellion
by BWW News Desk - Jul 30, 2015

Copyhouse Press Ltd of London are proud to announce the forthcoming debut novel by Argent Hellion. The novel is an immersive epic fantasy, which takes place in a new and exciting setting developed by the author over many years. It fuses action, adventure and the depth of characterisation which naturally springs from such a vibrant milieu. The style and substance of Argent Hellion Silvers' work is reminiscent of the very best on offer from such genre titans as George R.R. Martin, J.R.R Tolkien and Mervyn Peake. Fans of roleplaying series will also feel at home, as the work combines the charisma and verve of classic Jackson and Livingstone, and the nuanced immersive intelligent fantasy of Dever's Magnamund. When the infusion of the author's own unique twist on the soaring epic heroism and darkest horrors of the Eurpoean folkloric tradition is added to the mix, the result is an atmospheric fantasy of truly epic proportions which feels unique and utterly believeable. The novel is currently in pre-production and is scheduled for release in early Q1 of 2016. It will be beautifully illustrated throughout and will be a must-have addition to any and every discerning fantasy fan's bookshelf. Argent Hellion can be contacted for interview via the Marketing Team at Copyhouse Press Ltd. (more...)

by Peggy Sue Dunigan - May 21, 2015

Forget what might be known or understood regarding Richard Wagner's epic The Ring Cycle- a legendary series of four complete operas he composed over 26 years ( 1848-1874) that requires more than 18 hours to perform. Instead enjoy The Skylight Ring, Skylight Music Theatre's cheeky, slightly irreverent yet oh so entertaining two hour and four actor version on the Studio Stage at the Broadway Theatre Center.
