New Year’s Eve. Valentine’s Day. You birthday, your anniversary. For all of these sorts of events, it feels like people start asking you months ahead of time: what are your plans?

And the pressure, man, the pressure.

Hundreds of years ago men went out hunting in order to feed their families. It was a dangerous business. The women were gatherers, collecting berries and edible plants to round out their diets. Fast forward to modern times. These days we do our hunting and gathering at the supermarket. While we don’t have to worry [...]

The next big thing.

By On Jun 8 2013, 9:00 am

I was talking with author Lexxie Couper and our editor (the super lovely Heidi Moore) the other day and the conversation turned to ‘the next big thing’ and whether any of us could predict what it might be. A while ago we had the paranormal thing (you couldn’t turn around without bumping into a vampire) [...]
