Arrow 3-04: "The Magician"


Hey, that was a pretty good episode of Arrow, right? Fast-paced, good action scenes, funny in parts, Oliver was less self-absorbed and undercaffeinated than usual, and Nyssa and Malcolm were in good form.

Here's this week's illustrated guide.

Demon City

I've got a new book out. I'd love it if you bought it.

It's good: dark and twisty, and it moves at a fast pace. It's set in the same universe as WRONG CITY, and a few of the characters cross over, and it expands on the supernatural mythology introduced in that earlier book, but it's a standalone. No prior knowledge required.


In her followup to WRONG CITY, Morgan Richter once again takes readers inside a treacherous, alluring version of Los Angeles, where enigmatic supernatural forces manipulate the oblivious inhabitants from behind the scenes. 

Felix Dockweiler—former model, current entertainment reporter, and the star of such films as Frat Party USA—yearns for fame at any cost. A callow young Omaha native struggling to make an impact in image-obsessed, celebrity-driven Hollywood, Felix torments, exhausts, and starves himself while chasing after a goal that always lies just out of his grasp. 

Felix’s fragile status quo is disrupted when a seductive yet violent pair of fire demons blaze into town and rack up a body count while hunting down his troubled younger brother, Michael. As the temperature rises and out-of-control wildfires threaten the city, Felix’s own search for Michael takes him from Hollywood parties to Skid Row flophouses and all points in between. To save Michael, Felix pursues a dangerous alliance with Sparky Mother, a charismatic and unfathomably powerful entertainment mogul with more than a few skeletons in his closet. Meanwhile, Felix’s attempts to secure the job of his dreams begin to look more and more like a negotiation for his mortal soul.

Pick it up at Amazon or elsewhere. The paperback edition is $11.00, while the ebook is a steal at $2.99.
