    Emperor's Blades TV Show

    Eh, it could work. The first book didn't do a huge amount for me so I never bothered with the sequels.

    Thinking of Writing a Fantasy Novel?

    I already did, but the sequel is what's stymying me. Damn sieges are hard to write.

    What do you miss from Old School Epic Fantasy

    See, my novel falls firmly into grimdark territory, but I have: - A magic system that involves Glyphs (rather than runes, but not dissimilar in principle) - A story that reaches beyond what is immediately apparent - generally the scope is around a few characters but the events of the prologue...

    I finished Black Sun Rising which I really enjoyed. Solid 7.5/10 for me. I have moved on to A Song for Arbonne next.

    The Unholy Consult was far and away the best book I read last year. I am 2/3 through Black Sun Rising. I am enjoying this quite a bit.

    Oh, I am also writing again too. I had fan mail from my single fan and it made me feel all fuzzy inside. That might have been the knife someone stuck me with, mind.

    It's October 2018: What fantasy book are you reading?

    Haven't read Blackwing and as before I'm put off by how tiny the book is. I'm also not big on Black Company. Never finished the first trilogy.

    It's October 2018: What fantasy book are you reading?

    Chugging forward with In The Ruins. Work being hell has stalled my progress somewhat, but it's easing off so I have a bit more energy for reading. Not sure what I'm going for after this - got Locke Lamora book 2, Mistrwraith 1, a GGK (Arbonne) that I've had a year and not gotten around to... Any...

    I just bought...

    Found a second hand copy of Janny Wurts' 'Curse of the Mistwraith' at Tesco so I bought it. £1. The girth of the tome gives me hope that it bears a most Ready alacrity.
