Critique Geeks

We are the Critique Geeks, a hive mind consisting of the two owners of Analytical Madness: Analyze and Maddy. It is as this Frankenstein entity that we will post all Critique Geeks segments, where Analyze and Maddy sit down together to have a heated discussion on a topic from fantasy or science fiction in a clash of logic vs. lunacy, pomposity vs. pedantry and serious vs. silly whenever we find a topic worthy of extended discussion. If you click on the lovely mask to the left you can find all Critique Geeks articles. If instead you want something more serious and sarcastic, you can find it by going to "Articles by Author" and clicking Analyze. If you want something sillier and more digestible, go there and pay a visit to Maddy's page instead. "Oh hai, Analyze!" "What are you doing here? You're not... Now look what you made me type!"

Sore Is the Ass That Sits the Iron Throne – What “Fire & Blood” Says About Leadership

  What makes a good leader the goodest? As the fearless leader of “Analytical Madness” I know it is important to stand tall in the face of adversity.
