Q: A Fantasy movie with a powerful humanoid being that lives in water

AlfredI watched this Fantasy movie, in French, about half a dozen years ago. It was shortly after it was first released in France, probably not so long after it was first released in English speaking countries since I am almost sure it was origially in English. It is about a humanoid being that had bee...

Q: 1970s supernatural thriller featuring a black dog

CatchAsCatchCanI've been trying to recall the name of a film I saw a couple of times long ago. It's a supernatural thriller, but I don't remember much of the plot. A black dog, likely named Nosferatu, featured. The dog carried some association with evil, and there was some sort of cult, possibly religious, asso...

Q: Trying to find an old science fiction book I never finished reading as a kid

Lee RobertsI remember the book was kinda old, as it had an American travel to another planet to prevent the communists from corrupting the primitive inhabitants which were pretty human. The key detail I can remember is the man made a very durable knife out of some sort of crystal to prevent the inhabitants ...

Q: What was Jessica and the Bene Gesserit's game plan if Paul failed the test?

BatpersonEarly in the novel Dune, Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam administers a test to Paul Atreides to determine, as she puts it, whether he is or not "human". It seems that this testing is normally something internal to the B.G. and not usually administered to men, so in Paul's case it was unusual b...

Q: What’s that book reimagining the whole Helen of Troy story?

NikkiSo I remember reading this book when I was in 8th grade. I can remember the main concept of the book and the cover. The story is about two schools with a long standing rivalry. There’s this girl, Helen. The stereotypical “she’s perfect every girl wants to be her every guy wants to date her” cheer...

Q: Single mother and alpha male novels

davit riazI have recently discovered that I enjoy single mother romance stories and found them very intriguing. Now, I'm looking for novels featuring a single mother and an alpha male romance, with some BDSM scenes. I'm not interested in past life romances; I prefer stories with a fresh start for the singl...

Q: Looking for a story that possibly started MYOB

Rohit GuptaI recall reading a story / novel where the inhabitants had been cut off from the empire for a while. A ship, from the empire, lands and soldiers get out and try to take over. The residents would resist by saying MYOB (Mind Your Own Business). I think it may have been the same story where there w...

Q: Elemental novel where a boy is shown he can control elements and ends up being really strong at the end

Tuush YangI read this book a while back, before quarantine is all I know. It was a book that began with the main character accidentally destroying a cafeteria table.

Q: Book (maybe first in series) about a teenage assassin who's seeking revenge for his parents

Sean DugganI read this somewhere in the last 12 years or so, probably closer to 8-12 years ago based on my scant memories of circumstances (namely that I was reading it while waiting for the bus nearby my current house). I'm pretty sure it was an ebook that I got through the library. The protagonist is a te...

@AncientSwordRage I missed it when it came out, so I only recently discovered that Sarah Monette (as Katherine Addison) has a sequel to The Witness for the Dead out, so I'm rereading TWftD in preparation.
I also found a bunch of My Hero Academia volumes on sale used and picked them up. Haven't read them before, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Listening: A coworker pointed me to a group called "Billy Talent" which has caught my ear this week. Watching, I'm trying to get caught up on the anime of Delicious in Dungeon.
How about you? What are you interested in this week?

Q: Book about humans on alien planet that has a regular mass extinction event

Good VibrationsDo you know the name of a book about humans using technology to adapt to a planet where most life is regularly killed off? The species on this planet behave like insects. They mate like cicadas such that they lay a bunch of eggs and a cataclysm kills off the adults. This cataclysm is like clock-w...

Q: Children's book with pictures of paper cutouts

VesselI remember reading a book when I was young, but can't remember many details now. It was a book of stories, like traditional fairy stories, but they all seemed original - certainly I never saw any of the stories in other books. There were lots of pictures of beautiful paper figurines of the charac...

Q: Why didn't Harry go back to Grimmauld Place in the Easter holidays in OotP?

BeginTheBeguineHarry is desperate to talk to Sirius after being in Snape's memory. He can't write to him because Umbridge is checking the post, and can't use Floo powder because the fires are monitored. However, when it's the Easter holidays, rather than going back to Grimmauld Place or the Burrow and getting a...
