Ron Glick Releases New Fantasy SeriesRon Glick Releases New Fantasy Series
by BWW News Desk - Jun 22, 2015

Visit ronglick.com for contact details, review copies, photos, and an author bio. Ron Glick's Epic Fantasy Series Creates New Impact. 'Three' in Print and Kindle Format. Third Book in the Godslayer Cycle Releases on July 1, 2015. Ron Glick made his debut into fantasy fiction in 2011 with the publication of 'One,' the first volume of the Godslayer Cycle. Since then, Ron has proven himself a diverse voice in literature with 'The Oz-Wonderland' and 'Chaos Rising series,' a dozen volumes of Ron El's Comic Book Trivia, and even a political expose about corruption in Montana, 'U.S. Political Prisoner Since 2004.' Now, Ron returns to the series that started it all for the third installment in his nine volume epic destined to redefine divinity within fantasy fiction, 'Three.' In the Godslayer Cycle, two rival groups of Gods - The Pantheon and the New Order - vie for the faith of mortal souls throughout the world of Na'Ril. With the eldest group on the verge of extinction, nine mystical swords capable of slaying Gods are created, but lost within the mortal realm. Nathaniel Goodsmith is selected as the Avatar of the Pantheon to seek out the swords and use them on their rivals before the New Order can discover their purpose. In 'Three,' Nathaniel has returned home to await the Awakening of the third sword, but he is shocked to find the third sword following him there. But this sword is unlike any of the others that have come before. Three is not a sword that controls perception or elemental power, but instead gives its wielder mastery over time itself. What better way to destroy a Godslayer than to send him to a time before he ever was one? And without the Godslayer in the present, who can possibly stand against a conspiracy of immortals seeking revenge against their errant parents, the Gods themselves? 'Highly engaging and engrossing, with interesting and believable characters...' - Kyra Dune, on 'One' 'This tale is woven with the matrix of mystery, myth, magic and mayhem and I loved every minute of it, being hooked from the start.' - Julie Elizabeth Powell, on 'Two' Ron Glick (born January 20, 1969) is a community activist, and is presently active in several charitable enterprises. He was born in Plainville, KS. After living in various states, he currently lives in Kalispell, MT. He is the author of 'The Godslayer Cycle,' 'Chaos Rising,' 'The Oz-Wonderland series,' and Ron El's 'Comic Book Trivia,' as well as having written a screenplay adaptation of 'The Wizard In Wonderland.' Additionally, he created the Golden Age Preservation Project as a means of making Golden Age comics more accessible to modern audiences. His expose, 'U.S. Political Prisoner Since 2004,' broke him away from his fictional works to shed light upon political corruption in Montana. Ron loves contact and welcomes input on his work through his Twitter accounts or through direct contact on his site. (more...)

SOUND OFF Special Edition: 10+ Most Important Gay Musicals, Part 2SOUND OFF Special Edition: 10+ Most Important Gay Musicals, Part 2
by Pat Cerasaro - Jul 2, 2015

The BroadwayWorld community is nothing if not vocal and yesterday's critical column revealing my top picks for the most important gay musicals of all time inspired many reactions in the feedback, on Facebook and on social media, ranging from 'I LOVE LOVE LOVE COCO' to 'No FUN HOME?' to 'Where's THE FAGGOT?' and far beyond. As with any list such as this, historical perspective is an essential element and a musical such as FUN HOME that has only been on Broadway mere months is obviously too new to truly assess insofar as its historical influence and impact on the overall legacy of gay musicals on Broadway in toto - going as far back as 1969's COCO and covering all the way up to 2013's KINKY BOOTS, as yesterday's list did. So, as a result, we are giving you more of what you asked for and sharing 10 more musicals that have been important to the gay movement, all of which cited in yesterday's column but not included on the actual top ten. What follows are my personal choices, so what are yours? Let us know and perhaps we will even need to do another list to shine a light on even more LGBT touchstones. (more...)

SOUND OFF Special Edition: Top 10+ Most Important Gay MusicalsSOUND OFF Special Edition: Top 10+ Most Important Gay Musicals
by Pat Cerasaro - Jul 1, 2015

The landmark Supreme Court ruling handed down late last week instating national legalization of marriage rights for all individuals is a cause celebre for the country at large, particularly the Broadway community who has vocally and vociferously fought for equal acceptance for all for decades. Given the preponderance of LGBT people in the theatre community itself, this victory is a particular joy for many to celebrate. As a result of this momentous event, now is the ideal time to take a look back at the most important and notable musicals that have appeared on Broadway in the last several decades to shine a light on the gay community, ranging from portrayals of closeted individuals trapped and unable to find acceptance in a conservative society all the way to the out and proud representations available to see in some currently running smash hits. Additionally, who could forget all of musicals that have touched upon LGBT issues over the years - from the campy to the controversial to the highly acclaimed. (more...)
