Best Fantasy Books of 2015: BFB Staff Picks

by Jon Snow

Note that this isn’t the official BFB top 2015 list. A lot of the staff don’t read 2015 published books, so don’t be frustrated that your favourite is not on here. What this is, is a good indication of what books are probably worth reading and what is not. @sneakyburrito In no particular order: The Vagrant […]

Something we’ve done this year is to keep a record of the 2015 books that forum members have read. If they feel so inclined, they give the book a rating. Note that some forum members who have read the book, decided not to vote but wrote a review instead, as they don’t like giving books […]

Review: Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher

by Jon Snow

I actually had no idea that this book was in the pipelines when it came out. I’m glad I got the chance to read the Aeronaut’s Windlass. I love Dresden and so I have always wanted to read something from Butcher that wasn’t Dresden. I have heard many good things about Codex Alera but never […]

BFB Moderators Best of 2014

by Ben

Laurentius’s List Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson My favourite of 2014. WoR, like Way of Kings, is a huge monster of a book. I loved it nearly as much as I did Way of Kings. The continuation of the story of Kaladin Stormblessed is almost as good as the WoK. I have never been a […]

Romance in Fantasy…what’s the point?

by Ben

I myself, know nothing. This discussion is in real time, we didn’t edit any of our answers (except for […]

Review: Side Jobs by Jim Butcher

by Ben

  Sometimes being so busy my mind is frazzled. So when I saw Side Jobs…I thought I had missed a book from the Dresden Files, I was like…BUY BUY BUY! Then thinking, oh man, this one is after Turncoat and now I have to wait for it to come before I can read any Dresden. […]

Review: Twenty Palaces Society by Harry Connolly

by Ben

Chances are you haven’t heard about this one, unless you’re very much into urban fantasy. The Dresden files is king of urban fantasy in my mind, has reigned supreme for a long time but that’s not why I’m writing this today. I tell you true, when I say that figuratively, this guy is the bomb. […]
