    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...

    Anyone read Planetfall, After Atlas, Vagrant or The Malice?

    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...

    What's the worst thing fantasy authors do?

    ...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?

    okay - so it won't let me edit my fudge brained spelling of femininity (which I can't seem to read as anything other than feminininininty)... So let's be clear, it's a catch all for three types of gender issue: Violence against women, especially sexual violence. Underwear as armour. WAFF (Weak...

    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...

    Age of Iron

    I cast Thread Resurrect! WABOOOOOMMMM... I finaly cornered Angus Watson at the weekend to quiz him on fantasy vs history, breakfast and a bunch of other stuff (including the new trilogy he's got coming up this year). I'll get it run through a filter and hopefully it'll go up soon. In the...

    The Heart of What was Lost - Tad Williams

    Yeah. I remember liking Williams stuff... but think I should reread Memory, Sorrow and Thorn before taking a gander at this (I assume it's linked). That volume of reread is almost a scary as tackling Malazan , which I've just begun. Still - here's a piece in the mainstream press on Tad...

    The Heart of What was Lost - Tad Williams

    @Bierschneeman - is that a sarcastic Informative I spy? tut tut... ;)

    I just bought...

    @Bierschneeman Never been, but we were never told where each of us was sent so one of the other clones might be in a sleeper cell there. If this person is high up in government, law enforcefment or uses the internet a lot then chances are he's one of us. But I never told you that. :borg:

    Unkind to the Goodkind

    A friend was telling me a bit more about Terry Goodkind's stuff. I know he's been a figure of ridicule on and off on this forum but I've got to admit I almost want to read one of his books from morbid curiosity after being pointed to this page. (Almost)...
