There is a game called Dungeon Scroll for Android and Apple devices. You get some times and spell a bunch of words and the score of the words kill various creatures. It's pretty low-tech. I absolutely LOVE this game and have had it for years. I'm trying to find something similar that's maybe a little more sophisticated...saves my game progress as I go, leveling up means something, idk. [more inside]

The book is young adult fiction. I vividly remember one scene in which the narrator, a young boy, goes with his mother to the station to meet the soldier they'll be hosting, who then turns out to be black.

Here's a run-down of just a few of the publishing platforms I've heard of recently. Some of them are blog-like and others are book-like. Some are for technical writing and others are more general. I haven't had time to try very many of them, so I'm curious what anybody else might think of them before I jump into using one(s) of them. Are there others like these? What are the differences among them? Vellum Hi Medium woop.ie GitBook LeanPub PressBooks

A few years ago, I came across the website of a German artist, female, who specialized in creating geometric artwork featuring very fine lines (think sweeping, 1pt lines). The only other things I remember are: 30ish in age, and had a non-standard German name, e.g. not something simple like "Anna Schmid". Anyone know her name and site?
