  1. This sound eerily familiar to my reaction to the first Shadowmarch book.
  2. Looking forward to this in the fall. I always thought Mordant's Need was under-rated in general. SJD's non-TC fantasy can be pretty enjoyable, as long as the quality is not at the same level as last TC Chronicles.
  3. We found a liquor store behind the hotel, a short walk, that had all we needed - ginger beer (from Bermuda no less) and fresh limes. So dark'n'stormies were enjoyed by all last night.
  4. Is ginger beer available in this snowbound country??! Where can ginger beer be located in Boston. If anyone is driving into town for the weekend, bring ginger beer!
  5. Good to have this to look forward to this year, along with new Tad Williams stuff as well. I will have to dig out Dark Materials for a reread before the new Pullman comes out.
  6. It's here, or as near as dammit. This thread is for folk who may want to connect and/or announce when they are in town. I will be there from Thursday, if folk want to do dinner or whatevs that night.
  7. Well this is so pretentious.....
  8. Both Christmas specials are available on YouTube. Worth watching them for some cheerful holiday stuff, especially in light of recent news about George Michael, Carrie Fisher and Richard Adams.
  9. The 'In Memoriam' section of all award ceremonies in the New Year should be one of the first things they do, and will be extra long this time around. Rather than rewatch Star Wars movies, I think it will be 'When Harry met Sally' and 'Blues Brothers' tonight. l
  10. Breakfast is the best meal to go and eat at a restaurant. Non-one should have to get up and prepare a meal at the start of the day. Head to your nearest breakfast establishment and have someone else prepare your morning foodstuffs. Or just eat the leftovers in your home fridge, it's entirely up to you.
  11. Amazing talent. Something like fourteen (only fourteen) albums in forty years, but the impact he has had was vast.
  12. Motherfucker. 2016 continues to deliver on utter shite.
  13. Uwe Boll says he is finished with movie making Tragic. So many dreck-awful films in his career.....
  14. Yep. The end of GBBO as we know it. Apparently Channel 4 are out whoring the program now for sponsors, to try to claw back some of the absurd sums they forked out to get the program from the BBC. Allegedly they (Channel 4) want to get many more hours of programming from the franchise that the BBC showed, so expect lots of spinoffs and behind the scenes stuff to pad out the actual competition coverage.
  15. Apparently there are pictures of all the contestants standing icing-less, with hands in apron pockets or arms crossed. So that may have been a red herring. The Radio Times (TV listing mag in UK) was, however, USING a different picture for Candice, which may be significant.
