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

    I'm currently re-reading Bakker's Prince of Nothing series. Am now racing through book 2 (the Warrior-Prophet) and having a lot of fun. Morbid fun though (these books are as dark as I remembered). How 'bout you?

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

    Halfway through October already, but forgot to make the new thread.... In any case, I'm reading Children of Ruin, a sci-fi book by Adrian Tchaikovsky. I'm also reading the Meditations by Marcus Aurelius on the side. So currently no Fantasy for me, although I did just buy the full Aspect...

    It's October 2019: What sci-fi book are you reading?

    I'm currently reading Children of Ruin, the sequel to Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovky. I quite like the book, although after reading the Expanse series, this one is relatively bleak in terms of character development.

    It's September 2019: What sci-fi book are you reading?

    I'm currently reading Tchaikovsky's Children of Time. I'm about 80 pages in, but it already promises to be quite good. The premise is exceptional, where next to a human PoV, you also have half of the chapters in the PoV of an alien species, which makes for an interesting experience.

    It's August 2019: What sci-fi book are you reading?

    I've just finished Persepolis Rising, book 7 of the Expanse series. Like the other Expanse books, this one was very well written and full of action.

    It's June 2019: What sci-fi book are you reading?

    I've just finished Expanse book 3 and started on Expanse book 4 (Cibona Burn). Again, it's setting up to be a great story. I am really taken with these Expanse books and I'm wondering why on earth I haven't read these sooner.

    Game of Thrones Season 8 (here be spoilers)

    So what did y'all think of episode 1? Overall I was quite happy with it. Below the good and the bad according to Berry. Good: - Nods to Season 1, Episode 1: Little boy climbing tree parallel with how Bran climbed in episode 1. Bran confronting Jaime at the end of the episode. Jon introduces his...

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

    I'm still struggling through The Lions of Al-Rassan. I don't particularly care for any of the characters to be honest. Also, this is more of an alternative history, rather than a fantasy as such. I don't know, it's just not what I had expected. I like it just as much as A Song for Arbonne, which...

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

    I've just finished A Song for Arbonne by GGK. It's a real shame, but I can only say I really disliked the book. No engaging characters, bleak world-building, dumb dialogue. Very surprising, as Tigana is one of my favorite fantasy books. I almost can't believe it's from the same writer as this...

    Malazan TV-series

    I saw this interesting thread on the Malazan subreddit: Apparantly the Weinstein Company was in the process of buying the rights to the Malazan franchise. A tv-series was in the early stages of development. It would center on Adjunct Tavore and her life before the events of the Malazan main...

    Pat Rothfuss's blog

    So I came across this blog post by Patrick Rothfuss: https://blog.patrickrothfuss.com Judging by the post, he is suffering from depression. I feel a bit sorry now for being so critical of him not finishing his series. It seems he is in a dark spot and has been for some time. What is it with...

    Did you guys see the Han Solo movie?

    I did. I actually liked it a lot. Although this story doesn't involve Jedi, the Star Wars universe in and of itself is such a cool place re. The possibilities for great stories set in that universe are almost limitless. The story shows the younger years of Han Solo, how he meets Chewie and how...

    It’s June 2018: What SF book are you reading?

    Not reading any sci-fi at the moment, and come to think of it: haven't read one in months. Any recommendations? In any case: how about you guys? Are you reading sci-fi?

    LOTR prequel series: focus on young Aragorn / 5 seasons / 1 billion USD in total / created by Amazon

    I know Sneaky made a post about this some time ago, but now there's such a wealth of new information released recently that I thought it'd be good to have a new thread about it. https://www.digitaltrends.com/movies/amazon-lord-of-the-rings-series-news-cast/ How do y'all feel about this? If the...
