Reading tips from Josh Grelle, a voice actor from the anime Attack on Titan, and director Scott Brewer from Garrison 7, at Supanova…

Josh Grelle plays Armin Arlert in the anime series Attack on Titan. Armin Arlert is an elite soldier in the Survey Corps, the only branch of the military that can venture beyond the Walls, trying to learn more about the Titans and how to win the war against them. Josh Grelle said he’d done 25 conventions this year. As far as favorite books went, he liked The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fxck. This book has been described as a reaction to self-help books: the author, Mark Manson, claims these put too much emphasis on being happy and positive. The author says that life’s struggles give it more meaning.
And The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom by Don Miguel Ruiz was another favorite. This is said to be about the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob people of joy and cause needless suffering.
He liked Warcraft books. He also liked the Star Wars audio books read by voice actor Marc Thompson who could do the entire cast with solid impressions of Han Solo and Lando Calrissian and others. Marc Thompson’s series include the Legacy of the Force and the Fate of the Jedi series.
Scott Brewer is the creator of Garrison 7, made by Gena8 studios. An elite special forces commander uncovers an evil military conspiracy. They murder his family and start a manhunt to kill him.
Mr Brewer liked the scifi thrillers, Pluto – Secrets Within, and Mars – Twin Prophecies, novels by Kynan Waterford. In Pluto – Secrets Within, Professor Saul Midian discovers element 115 on Pluto. It’s a substance that can warp space and time. Tyauna Riddigan has manipulated the media and forced him to accompany her and some mercenaries to Pluto to grab the substance for herself. But someone infiltrates the expedition. And none of them find what they expected on Pluto.
He also liked The Physics of Superheroes by James Kakalios. He uses examples from comic book scenes to describe the laws of physics.
As a kid, he liked the children’s book The Hunting of Shadroth by Victor Kelleher. This 1983 novel is said to be about the roots of violence and evil. A group of people called the Clan live on the Slopes overlooking the Greenlands. But the Clan’s cattle are attacked by an unknown figure. The chief blames the Fein, huge cattle animals, and orders their extermination.
