    The books coming out in 2020

    Strangely enough, I've enjoyed Esselmont's recent stuff a lot more than I ever did the Erickson doorstops....

    Fourth Quarter 2019 Reading

    I love Wooding (Ketty Jay!!!), but I have to agree. It was just...ok. And I think I'd have trouble picking it out of a lineup of the 20 or so fantasy on my kindle published in the last few years. The field just feels sort of flattened right now, which is why Abercrombie, e.g., stands out.
  3. Interesting - I really liked the tone of The Barrow. I may jump on the $5, assuming there is a modicum of editing to the in-progress chapters.
  4. Preordered this bad boy. Can't wait, JA....

    RIP Gene Wolfe

    Everyone should read Peace. Probably twice....

    First Quarter 2019 Reading

    Finished Assassin's Quest, and with that, the Farseer Trilogy. Ultimately enjoyed it quite a bit, but, good god did the second half of Assassin's Quest draaaaaaaaagggggg. Sort of a too pat for me deus ex machina ending that wasn't as satisfying as the three novel build up deserved. Not sure where I'll go next with Hobb - maybe to the Tawny Man books? Liveship doesn't look that interesting...

    Still Looking for a Good Space Opera Series

    Is this self published? (given that the publisher shows as "Galaxy's Edge", I'd guess so?
  8. He didn't ask for good books (though my impression is you're waaay out on a limb re: Dunnett? I've only read the first Lymond...). He asked for books "Martin himself explicitly said he was inspired by", for which, if I recall, Dunnett fits quite perfectly.
  9. How has Dorothy Dunnett not yet been mentioned?
