Like most of us, I've been spending a lot more time in front of a screen these past several months, working remotely from home, maintaining proper social distancing, etc. I've found myself in front of window screens, computer screens, smart phone screens, and TV screens. I've already seen every Star Trek movie and TV series there is. I've gone through Picard twice, and Discovery still hasn't come out with their new season yet, so I find myself trying out new shows.
One of my recent favorites was season 1 of the Netflix series "The Witcher." There are only eight episodes, so it didn't take long to get through, but I was facinated with the monsters they came up with. Every episode I found myself Googling another monster name to find out where the legend came from. Names like Hirikka, Sylvan, Doppler and Krallach. Needless to say, I'm taking notes about them all - you never know when one might fit into a new story. There's even a web page that talks about each of them all over on The Gamer.
I was so intrigued with the show that I have bought the first book in the series from Audible. This just might be a new thing for me... at least until Strange New Worlds comes out.
