    It's August 2019: What fantasy book are you reading?

    I hear that. I actually flicked to the back at about halfway through to see whether I wanted to stay the course or just say "This book is a lovely journey but I found myself going in a direction that seemed meh in a slow way so I decided to get off the bus and say I enjoyed the journey up until...

    Wheel of Time lands with Sony

    Except they did change the story in a few ways for GoT, and for Harry Potter too, and the LotR movies, and those were gigantic successes. Books and TV/Movies are different mediums. The scale of story you can successfully tell in the latter is smaller than the former and one of the things that...

    What Movie or TV show are you watching?

    That was clumsily put on my part as in that I was trying to talk about Gaiman's general views on everything, not just politics. Messing around with mythology has been his raison d'etre forever; him messing around with mythology some more should probably be viewed through those lens more than...

    Game of Thrones Season 8 (here be spoilers)

    I can just about see the Unsullied deciding otherwise for reasons - they're never been the rampagey types. The Dothraki? The World Pillaging Champions? Oh well. One more stray detail is hardly an issue at this point.

    Game of Thrones Season 8 (here be spoilers)

    My theory is that there was another 3 episodes they shot in between those two moments, but then accidentally destroyed, so they stuck those two moments together and hoped nobody would notice.

    Game of Thrones Season 8 (here be spoilers)

    Problem is I think the signal's getting perceived as "Waah! Waah!" out there and is allowing people to shrug off criticism as immature. Wonder what will happen with the spin-offs now. I've little intention of watching them, although I don't control the TV remote in my house so who knows.

    Game of Thrones Season 8 (here be spoilers)

    I enjoyed most of Episode 5 on its own merits. I just kinda wish it was a different show and Game of Thrones was getting a different ending.

    It's May 2019: What fantasy book are you reading?

    I'm increasingly like that. Right now I'm halfway through GGK's A Brightness Long Ago and Lindsay Davis' Garden of the Hesperides A Brightness Long Ago is a test of just how slowly you can push a fantasy story, I think. Its closer to Le Carre than most of the rest of the fantasy genre. I'm...

    It's April 2019: What fantasy book are you reading?

    I shall definitely stay the course then - just it may not be first against the wall. This'll also be the first Tchaikovsky I read.
