CD Projekt RED are the developers of The Witcher and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings so this should be a game to look out for (especially if you have an interest in the genre). As with their previous...

    August 2011 - What fantasy book are you reading?

    I've finished Best Served Cold, but I'm yet to start The Heroes. Not as good as Before They Are Hanged or The Last Argument of Kings - In my opinion it's probably on-par with The Blade Itself. The political situation at the end is quite interesting as is the situation the characters find...

    The Wise Man's Fear (Heavy Spoilers)

    Well I was planning to read The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, but one thing led to another and I started re-reading The Name of the Wind, and then made my way onto The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss. Overall, I'd say it wasn't as good as it's predecessor, but I enjoyed it immensely...

    So, everyone I've finished book 9 and about to start Night of Knives by Ian Esslemont. Firstly, however, I have a few questions about certain things I've noticed that appear inconsistent. 1. Trull Sengar - He seems to know a lot about the history of the Tiste Edur (including their old...

    Top 10 computer games

    What are your favourite computer games? They can be any genre, on any platform from any era. Here are mine, for what it's worth: 1. Final Fantasy 7 (PS1) - Has the best antagonist of all time, in my opinion, with Sephiroth being more than just some unknown evil entity that comes from nowhere...

Is it a Marketing strategy where the publisher thinks that more people will buy the book if they change the name to something...
