  1. East of the Sun and West of the Moon by Mercer Mayer
  2. The Alienist was good and The Angel of Darkness was even better ...
  3. It was very unusual. I would have to conclude that I liked it a lot, but its abrupt transition into romance and then war story a la The Red Badge of Courage sure is strange.
  4. Mini-interview with yours truly: http://www.seangrigsby.com/hits-from-the-blog/2017/5/22/the-hiss-of-the-blade-an-interview-with-richard-writhen Longer one: https://jesseteller.com/2017/05/26/the-friday-13-with-richard-writhen/
  5. It does kick off slowly. I also feel that the tone changes after book three. Wizard and Glass isn't nearly as nihilistic and grimdark as the previous ones IMO.
  6. Yeah? I'll have to look for them too then.
  7. Same. Victarion is boss, if they've completely omitted him, it's a crying shame.
  8. Finished The Fisherman, definitely worth checking out. Still working on Black House, and restarting The Imago Sequence tonite. Also picked up Blood of Elves used. Haven't read the two collections but I'll give it a shot too.
  9. Finished The Lies of Locke Lamora. Next up, I've started Black House by King / Straub ... I liked The Talisman a lot when I read it for the first time a couple of years ago.
  10. Here's a new one. https://mightythorjrs.wordpress.com/2017/05/03/book-excerpt-the-hiss-of-the-blade-by-richard-writhen/ And this: https://ourepicworlds.com/2017/05/05/the-epic-world-of-cedron-by-richard-writhen/
  11. Finished my The Dead Zone re-read, it was more epic than I remembered. Also finished We Eat Our Own by Kea Wilson and that was also really great. Going to give Mongrels by Stephen Graham Jones a shot next while still trying to finish The Lies of Locke Lamora.
  12. Yeah, that's not necessarily true. A lot of spec-fic has young characters but is aimed at an adult readership. Even ASOIAF or say, Stephen King's stuff has minors in it.
  13. Some of the same names there, puppies playing the same games they did last year. Granted, I haven't followed it closely in years past.
  14. Seems oddly akin to last year's ballot.
  15. I would say so too. She can use it as a staging area before the invasion proper.
