    Which movie are you watching?

    Dune is a book that is my safety blanket but never watched the film adaptation but two nights ago,around 3am,got my chance and I really digged it. The rich visuals was spot on for me and its always going to be a tug of war between book and film but it was a fair attempt.

    Having a reread of ASOIAF,never got the chance to read a dance with dragons but its a habit of mine to start all over to get to that point of the story. I also want to read Mark Lawrence,sometime in this month. Always putting it off.

    The Fantasy book/series map thread

    I love a good map. I used to photocopy the map and put it up on the wall,while reading but not so intense these days,even though its so much fun finding a small village,represented by some tiny squiglly line. I try to understand most of the poetry but in the end,reading it and let it swirl...

    Changing my perspective on Stephen King

    I've read the,what you would expect from Stephen King,horror novels but i'm really getting drawn in,in his dark tower world. Its so different but i still feel his sort of humour and pacing. On the fourth volume in the series,wizard and the glass and pretty awesome stuff

The rest of the dark tower series. Words of radiance. All of the dune books. Elric of melniborne...

    Whats all the fuss about Joe Abercrombie

    Finished the first law trilogy over the weekend for the first time and it really grew on me. It felt like there was no character that seemed like Abercrombie was saying,'like this guy,he's the hero' I found that appealing. No black and white,characters. Glotka was deliciously self pitying but...
