    It's September 2017 - What fantasy books are you reading?

    Wassup litches? I've been absent from the boards for a goodly amount of time, and I can't say my days have got any quieter which would allow me to return in strength. However... I'm just reaching the end of the Liveship series on audiobook so I can't resist a quick reviewette before running...

    February 2017 - What SF books are you reading?

    The Fire Sermon by Francesca Haig. Is it sci -fi? weeelllll maybe. It's post apoclyptic distopian fantasy. Probably. Anyway, interesting premise of twins that die when the other does. Well written. So far engaging, though I've wondered at the purpose of at least one scene. It's heading for a...

    Gardens of the Moo

    acknowledgement of the abrupt ending and knowing that about spacing gives me more inclination to try one more at least... I think. Any other opinions...? (@TomTB I'm looking at you)

    Gardens of the Moo

    No. It's not a typo. I've just finished the first of the Malazan books. Or rather the first of the Malazan audiobooks has just finished. The biggest surprise was hearing the words "We hope you have enjoyed our presentation of.." Is it just me or was that a massive WTF? I'm not saying I...

    ...taking that and making it mine... possibly in a sentence like "Well. You paddled your douchecanoe right up that one, didn't you?"

    What's the worst thing fantasy authors do?

    What's the worst thing fantasy authors do?

    So, this wide open little question came from Angus Watson, of the Iron Age trilogy fame. I interviewed him recently and this is what he would want to ask the boards if he could. Which he can. Because I just did. Anyway, meta descriptions aside, I figured I'd notch up a little poll of some of...
