The Taller Eight is the home of Kevin Schaller, professional critic and blogger. This site is his shout into the void, not only that he does exist but that such a shout is worth listening to, and that he intends to back up such a claim.

If you’re looking for the likes of Shigeru Miyamoto, or Lenny Bruce, or Christopher Hitchens, you won’t find them here. But if you look for them – the twinkle in the eye of a troublemaker or the sly smile of the kid that got away with spitballs in the back of the classroom – you just might find their influence.

These… are his stories.
