I used to write about my thoughts regarding Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and my other favorite sci-fi/fantasy/adventure books and movies in my LiveJournal. But lately, I have come to treat my LJ like a personal diary, so I decided to create this new blog.

I named this blog "Across the Stars" mainly because that is the title of my second favorite theme from the Star Wars saga (next only to "Duel of the Fates"). And the title seemed to encompass the magical and fantastical worlds that I will deal with here. I don't claim to be an expert in any of the topics I mentioned. What I will write here are mainly my own personal thoughts, ideas, and experiences regarding the said topics.

Fantasy and sci-fi has always been able to cast a spell on me. My friend U-l-a-n and I once talked about owning too many fantasy books, and not enough reality-based literary works. But sometimes, I just feel the need to escape the real world. And even though the worlds I escape to may just be make-believe alternate universes, the best of them still manage to mirror reality, the characters and their experiences, although tinged with magic, are still very much human and grounded in real-life.


Thanks to U-l-a-n for all the help in setting up this blog and for pointing me to the resources I needed. :o)
