    GOT: Spolier Warnings

    http://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2015/03/game-of-thrones-tv-show-will-spoil-books So this may have been a given anyway, but the shows writers have confirmed the show will be ending the same way as the books. So although the route might be different, when series 7 rolls around in 2017, it...

    End of an era.

    Such a shame to see him go. I was reminded of this article a few years ago, I think it does a better job of doing him justice than anything I could write here http://bit.ly/1Ai1g0Z Suffice to say he'll be sorely missed.

    The secret TV pilot of The Wheel of Time

    It's a real adaptation of the prologue to Eye of the World but not a proper pilot for an actual TV show. It was made so that the company that owns the right to adapt the books could keep those rights as they were due to revert to Harriet McDougal (Mrs Robert Jordan) a few days later. So there...

    A Robin Hobb question(s)

    So I've recently finished Royal Assassin, book two of the Farseer trilogy and I loved it, much better than Assassin's Apprentice in my opinion and I'll definitely be going on to finish the trilogy with Assassin's Quest. My question is this: would those of you who have read the rest of Robin...

    Most Stephen King i've read isn't that scary, or have been let down towards the end in my opinion, particularly his larger books, such as The Stand or IT. BUT, havign said that, Misery and Salems Lot were good books and the scariest I found. Also try Metro 2033 by Dmitri Glukohvsky (I think...

    Finally finish Acacia by David Anthony Durham. I started reading this in 2010, got a third of the way through and gave up there. I always meant to go back, but never brought myself to do so.

    Top 25 Stand Alone Books

    The first half of The Stand is the great half of the book, but lacks any real fantasy elements, and therfore cant really be included on this list. The second half, the bit with the fantasy, was awful (particularly fantasy elements), and so once again has no place on this list.

    The Player of Games is a favourite of mine, and its a great start to the Culture Novels by Iain M. Banks The Culture series is a great one, and every novel feels quite differenet to the last, so there should be something for everyone (but so far, Player is the best).
