Every so often I like to take this blog outside the technical news I usually cover. This is one such time.
I wanted to be the first to announce the hot new fantasy fad theme that's going to replace vampires: the minotaur, a bull-headed, human-bodied creature of ancient Greek mythology. Razorbill Books executive Graham Childress has announced a 3 book series about "a bad-boy minotaur who transfers to a new high school and eventually falls for the one girl who can see the pain and sensitivity behind his brooding exterior."
This book will hit shelves on Dec. 14, the same date three rival publishers will release novels featuring a bad-boy mummy, a bad-boy cyclops, and a bad-boy Mayan vision serpent.
