    Watched it yesterday, I'm quite impressed but some (small)things are done a bit different from the book, can't wait for the next episode.

    Skyrim

    You have a nice configuration I can hold for years.Unfortunately I have neglected my PC for the last few years so I plan this summer to buy new or upgrade it. I missed playing some good RPGs like Fallout 3, Dragon Age, Mass Efect and so on, so I have to make up for it. I also liked Oblivion a...

    Skyrim

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSRtYpNRoN0 Check the trailer it's awesome. Skyrim is the sequel of the acclaimed The Elder Scrolls, which btw to me are among the best RPG around. And I can't wait to play it, but I have to upgrade my PC to do that. According to the trailer for the first time...

    What's on your Bucket List?

    Wow 300, my record is 200 but that was a couple years ago now I could barely make 30 push ups let alone lift so much on bench press. :) I would like that too, actually I'd be satisfied just with the library the pool can come as a surplus. As for my list, it's not complete probably it never...

    December - What fantasy book are you reading?

    I yesterday finished "Smoke and Mirrors", what I like most about the stories it that they are original and they are not for everyone's taste because of Gaiman's unique style. To me some of the stories were good even though I didn't like all of them but they are worth a shot especially if you...

    December - What fantasy book are you reading?

    Yesterday finished The Eyes of the Dragon, it's my first book by Stephen King and although it is for younger readers it's a great book the plot and the writing are great, I'd recommend it to Kings's fans and for readers who hadn't read this author before it's a good starting place. I don't have...

    December - What fantasy book are you reading?

    Finished with The Etched City, it's a dark fantasy a blend of western, fantasy and it's a bit weird too. The story is centered around two main protagonists, a witch-doctor Raule and gunslinger Gwynn. They try to escape from the Army of Heroes lead by general Anforth and end up in the city...

    November - What fantasy book are you reading?

    Finally finished with Titus Groan, not an easy book to read, as previously mentioned I wanted to put it down a couple of times but was glad to get through it. Now I'll give my impressions about the book. Titus Groan in the first installment of the trilogy Gormenghast, it's not like any type of...

    November - What fantasy book are you reading?

    Halfway through Titus Groan, I haven't read a book so slowly before the writer's style is so descriptive. I wanted to put it down a couple of times but actually I started to like it, it's unlike anything I read before it's has a melancholic atmosphere, but I'll give further comments when I read...

    Fantasy short stories

    Danica, I searched through the net and found this http://www.amazon.com/Swords-Dark-Magic-Sword-Sorcery/dp/0061723819/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1287734736&sr=1-1, Maybe it is not what you're looking for but it is a collection of contemporary authors and it has Joe Abercrombie. :)

    Fantasy short stories

    I think that an author needs to posses special skill to make a successful fantasy short story, because the words that are used are limited. So far I've read just a few fantasy short stories like Stephen Donaldson's "Ser Visal's Tale" which is part of his collection of short stories "Daughter of...

    Fantasy short stories

    I think that among fantasy readers it is more common to read BIG novels especially novels that belong to a serial rather than short stories, even though almost every fantasy writer has written collection/s of short stories. So I'm interested how many of you read short stories and if you do which...

    October - What fantasy book are you reading?

    Just finished "The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath" by H P Lovecraft. I must say that I start to like Lovecraft's stuff, even thought I didn't find his writings to be very scary since he is considered to be a horror writer, but I like how his stories are a mixture of dark fantasy, supernatural and...

    I like *this* so recommend me.....

    Twilight nooooo way. You could try Earthsea if you haven't read it. It is a series of 6 books which are all small in size but excellent(they are on the top 25 list in this site) and are usually centered around 1-2 persons. Maybe Harry Potter, but I guess you've already read them.
