  1. March Reading 2017

    Gonna give The Darkness That Comes Before a shot, still working on The Lies of Locke Lamora, and I want to start The Coming of Conan collection and Lord Foul's Bane.
  2. Bladerunner 2

    There were a lot of cool elements that weren't even touched on in the 1982 film.
  3. The Longest SF & Fantasy Novels of All Time

    Interesting list. The uncut edition of The Stand rox, I'm definitely glad I finally read that version. And Atlas Shrugged is deff dystopian sci-fi, because it refers to a future version of society; but it is couched in a lot of political commentary and satire.
  4. Han Solo Movie Cast First Shot

    I have some hope for this flick. Alden Ehrenreich was in the Beautiful Creatures movie, and I really liked that series.
  5. Stephen R. Donaldson

    I have LFB, gonna give it a shot soon. Hear good things ...
  6. Reccomend recent debut spec fic. authors

    Hmm. There's a sample here . But yeah, different strokes for different folks or whatever. It's on my TBR but there's so much other stuff that I don't know when I'll get to it. I really want to make the time to finish Locke Lamora.
  7. Reccomend recent debut spec fic. authors

    General FB, Grimdark fiction readers and writers group. Maybe a different sensibility than some.
  8. Sopranos- so awesome

    I only saw the first three seasons but they were pretty fresh.
  9. Reccomend recent debut spec fic. authors

    Really? I've heard pretty good things about it. I haven't read the three suggestions, just making them based on overall buzz.
  10. Reccomend recent debut spec fic. authors

    Of mine? If so, thx. if not, disregard this message lawl. In all seriousness tho OP, I would second The Cracked Amulet, Snakewood, Senlin Ascends.
  11. First Fantasy Book or Series

    Prydain and Narnia would be excellent for someone that age. HDM gets a little grim and maybe early teens.
  12. Shows you liked way back when that probably don't hold up

    A lot of stuff doesn't hold up IMO. But that's because once you're older, you've become so plot-jaded. Kids watch something, and they get like blown away lawl.
  13. Young Adult Books: Discuss!

    I want to read And I Darken and Three Dark Crowns, just based on the strength of the titles ... Maybe GDYA is a thing now lawl.

  15. His Dark Materials sequel trilogy: The Book of Dust

    The first two HDM books were great fun, started the third and then put it down. Now it's on the TBR again ...
