5 Books to Read if You Loved Watching ‘American Gods’

by David Castro

Mythology is a rich place to draw on as a writer of fantasy, especially those of the ancient world, where there are not nearly as many living worshipers to offend. These stories are already larger than live and inside their own mythos, to take them and add them to the melodrama that is real life […]

Upcoming Books in February 2015

by Ben

Hope everyone had a good rest and spent time with family and friends in Dec/Jan. Obviously there have been some great books in Jan with Firefight, Golden Son and Providence of Fire among many others.

Upcoming Books in June

by Ben

Yeah I know this is Best Fantasy Books but this next month it really is about Sci-fi. SF is not my first love but I wish I had more time to read them. Dune, Ender’s Game and Tuf Voyaging are right up there with my favourite books. If you haven’t experienced the splendor of SF before and […]

Comics have been around for years and some could argue that they have had a large influence on fantasy and sci-fi books in the last 80 years. Someone like Neil Gaiman has had prolific success in both comics (graphic novels these days) and the fantasy book genre. As the digital age slowly encompasses all, webcomics are […]
