    August 2015 - What fantasy books were we reading?

    Hi Andy. I haven't read the books you're talking about and this is completely off topic, but I just wanted to say, I like your user name. Clearly you're a Diana Wynne Jones fan-- I am pretty sure I have read all of her books at this point, but was wondering if you can think of anything in a...

    August 2015 - What fantasy books were we reading?

    I am now re-reading for the 1 millionth time, the Harry Potter series. I know. There are so many good fantasy books - and just books - out there, but I am choosing to re-read this series right now. Because it's kind of my comfort series, I suppose. Question - do you guys have a "comfort" book...

    Coolest Real World Places from Fantasy

    I think I just barely beat the crowds that will be heading here for August, it's actually (relatively) quiet here now. I'm sure I'll be back sometime when it's not summer. Heading up north soon - will I find more proper food there?

    The Lies of Locke Lamora or The Black Company

    The first one the first one the first one! Okay, I haven't read The Black Company, but you really can't go wrong with The Gentleman Bastards series. I might actually read this again, now that you've reminded me. Thanks for that.

    Coolest Real World Places from Fantasy

There's the school here that supposedly inspired Hogwarts, Tom Riddle's grave, Elizabeth Moodie's grave (a...

    It's a joke, I was talking about my own book, it's called The Fantastic Fable of Peter Able. I've been trying to get the word out about it, as it just came out, and crossed the line. :blackeye: Now it will be know as the Book that Shall Not be Named.

    I just bought...

    Okay, for real though. Aside from that *other* book I mentioned, I DID just buy The Book of Life, the third in the All Souls trilogy. I really like the premise of these books but by the end of book two, I was a little tired of the main character. Anyone read the third one? Does she redeem...
