TV Tropes; a great writing resource

The following site, TV Tropes, is a terrific tool to understand the way tropes are used, not just in TV series (it started as a wiki for tropes in Buffy the Vampire Slayer) but also in novels and other forms. A good example is to compareĀ Game of Thrones (the TV series) and the novels in A Song of Ice and Fire series.
A word of warning though: beware the “rabbit hole”! It is possible to fall into it and spend an awful lot of time in there!

Now Nightspore is a dot com!

Up until recently, the “” web address has been unavailable. I had been beaten to the post. However, the previous owner did not renew it so it became available. Fortunately, I was sufficiently quick off the mark to get it and am making the primary site.

Old links to should still work and I aim to keep both addresses active for this blog, at least for the time being.
