  1. Sounds interesting. Considering how collaborative something like a TV show is I don't expect great things from it. His shows required a very delicate balance of tone to work and I'm not not confined he'll be able to transfer that to a novel.
  2. The Books That Have Just Come Out: New Release Thread

    Gladstone is sooo good. Your PSA is appreciated.
  3. ASOIAF ruined other fiction books for me.

    Joel Shepherd's A Trial of Blood and Steel is very Song of Ice and Fireish. Pretty much no magic and it is set in a complex medievalish society. All the characters have believable, motivations. The first book is Sasha.
  4. DNA testing typically takes 6 months. Even if you got a match it would be a long time before authorities were sure of it. In a case like this it is very dubious whether the police would be willing to take the time and money to perform a DNA test.
  5. 50 Dead, Dozens Wounded in Orlando Club Shooting

    This is terrible. My prayers go out to the victims' families.
  6. Upcoming Cover Art VII

    Really like the covers for Hammers on Bone and Nevernight. Gilded Cage is handsome but unmemorable. A Taste of Honey is a nice cover but that grey color really makes unmemorable. Cold-Forged Flame is a slight step up from the typical protagonist with a sword.
  7. The Passage sequence: The City of Mirrors [spoilers]

    I've been waiting to read this series until it was finished. I wasn't expecting it to take this long. Now I'm just waiting for reviews to see if if it is worth picking up in its entirety.

  9. Hugos V: E Paucibus Drama

    The more you talk about EPH the more I like it. :thumbsup:
  10. The Superhero Literature thread

    You came out in 2013. Doesn't seem like it has been that long.
  11. Upcoming Cover Art VI

    That cover is not very good but I would take that cover over the U.K. one in a heartbeat. I've seen good covers on U.K. books before but there's a general trend over there to have abstract covers that are afraid to show the content of the book.
  12. Upcoming Cover Art VI

    Those Hobb covers are awful. U.K. covers tend to be boring and unimaginative but those are some of the worst I've seen.
  13. a crown for cold silver

    I just want to know what R.A. Salvatore's pseudonym is. Not knowing that bugs me a lot.
  14. K.J. Parker (a.k.a.Tom Holt) - Part II

    But the entire point is to avoid cutting back and forth, which is why Parker talks about novellas. It sounds like each chunk is meant to be a somewhat self contained story that shows a war from a different perspective. I just started reading my first Parker novel, the Company, the other day. So far it is...different.
  15. The SFF All-Time Sales List

    Yep. The " In Death.." series that Roberts publishes under the J.D. Robb pseudonym are romantic police procedurals that start out in 2058 and have Sci-fi things like phasers, flying cars, and droids. That series had its 50th book published this year. Also, she's published books under the Nora Roberts name that feature supernatural elements.
