At Graeme Ing’s blog today, I’m talking about one of my favorite things… besides aliens. Do you know what it is? Come find out if you’re right.
My Favorite Martian
Hosted by Maurice and Nigel at The Geek Twins .
I had a hard time deciding between the Cardassians from Deep Space Nine, Londo Mollari from Babylon 5, and Apophis from Stragate: SG-1.
The Tailor and Gul Dukat in Deep Space Nine added a lot of intrigue and fun, plus they demonstrated individuality within an alien race instead of lumping all individuals of a race under one stereotype.
Mollari was complicated, which intrigued me. He was often a dastard, but he also had a conscience which got the better of him sometimes.
Apophis made no apologies for being bad and he seemed to really enjoy himself in the process. He had his own agenda and motives, which were rotten by human standards but merely ambitious by Goa’uld standards. Anyway, the joy he brought to what he did made me love watching him.

1303 The Dragonslayer by Christine Rains
Cover reveal! Genre: paranormal romance Release date: February 13th, 2013
On the rooftop of neighboring building, dragonslayer Xanthus Ehrensvard fires at his target, Governor Whittaker. How he missed the shot, he doesn’t know, but fleeing the scene, he picks up an unwanted passenger. Gorgeous reporter Lois King saw Xan’s face, and she believes it’s the story to make her career. Except he can’t let her walk away knowing what he looks like. Xan has to show her the Governor is a bigger threat to the world than he is.
Xan knows dragons never went extinct. They evolved with human society, taking on mortal forms, and slithered their way into positions of great influence and power, just like the Governor.But it’s no easy chore proving to someone that dragons still exist, and even more so, they’re disguised as famous people. Xan must convince Lois or find another way to silence her. An option, as he gets to know her, he likes less and less.
After all, dragonslayers are no longer celebrated heroes but outlaws. Just as the dragons wish it. But this outlaw must make a plan to slay the dragon or risk its retribution.
