    Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance v. 3.0

    I'm really glad the Hollows is starting up again. Is it too late for Rachel/Ivy? I hope not!

    Dresden Files (most recent thread is archived) Peace Talks is finished

    I find Harry's objection that he knows Molly's father to be demeaning her to being her father's property despite being a 25 year old woman. I find it problematic to treat an adult woman like a child. But that's just my reading of Harry in this.

    Gaunt's Ghosts by Dan Abnett

    I very much enjoy this series but it's also suffering from a Black Library problem of being that it just keeps going and going with no end or real character development. I feel like that is seriously cramping my love of the work and characters. Still, they're wonderful for what they were.

    Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance v. 3.0

    White Wolf and Crossroad Press have teamed up to release the original Vampire: The Masquerade Clan Novels. https://crossroadpress.com/product-category/white-wolf/ I loved these in the 90s but I was a Goth kid.

    Scott Lynch's Thorn of Emberlain is Completed

    I love the Lies of Locke Lamora. I hated Red Sea under Red Skies by comparison. And I LOVED the Republic of Thieves primarily because of Sabetha and her deconstruction of the sexy love interest rival.

    I hope for more Sabetha. I just hope Locke and Sabetha never get together.

    The Books That Have Just Come Out: New Release Thread II

    Esoterrorism by me just came out on audiobook if you like spies versus monsters. https://www.audible.com/pd/Esoterrorism-Audiobook/B07S1C59DF?qid=1558658830&sr=1-6&ref=a_search_c3_lProduct_1_6&pf_rd_p=e81b7c27-6880-467a-b5a7-13cef5d729fe&pf_rd_r=V4TETQHXK4ZBF5WTAEKC

    Subversion of the Monomyth

    I don't think there's any subversion. Daenerys and Jon defeated the Night King. They don't need to do the actual blow to have save the world.

    Slavoj Zizek on the ending

    A white savior is better than brown folk not even existing in Westeros after the war. At least Daenerys actually had plots involving them. The brown folk simply...go away...after Daenerys dies.

    The Ending Was very conventional

    You can't be racist against orcs. You can't be racist against fictional characters. You can only comment on bad storytelling. Basically, Bran was a poor choice in my view and it was a cheap, safe, and boring ending to the series about challenging the assumptions of Medieval politics. If it wasn't about that, it could have been and I felt that was a better ending. You can disagree if you want but it's a matter over a story and its presentation. Edit: I also felt this was interesting as well. https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/game-thrones-season-8-finale-bran-daenerys-cersei-jon-snow-zizek-revolution-a8923371.html?fbclid=IwAR1DK2ybDCFr53AH-0QYev851k4onURMT7p098dhzuFqpWmx5o8GrxoCXm4

    Because it's boring versus all the alternatives?
  15. Bluntly, everyone in the show is a conqueror. Rob plans to conquer King's Landing and the Westlands Stannis plans to conquer the Seven Kingdoms Jon conquers Winterfell and the other Stark lands Cersei tries to conquer everything Everyone is also ruthless in the show. So what the hell makes Daeny any different?
