So our blog has been a bit quiet this year. In case you are wondering what happened, I (mostly) blame Brandon Sanderson.
I finished The Final Empire for the assigned reading and that was all fine. As I had enjoyed it I thought I’d start on The Well of Ascension. Well, I think I must have fallen into the Well of Ascension because somehow I am now 3/4 of the way through The Hero of Ages (points for puns, right?). The problem with reading Brandon Sanderson’s work is that you won’t want to do anything else.
I’ve decided the Mistborn books will get a mega blog post dedicated to them once I’ve finished The Hero of Ages. The best part of this is that Mr NW has not actually read The Hero of Ages, so I’m ahead of him on a series! No, I’m not overly competitive *cough cough*.
Also, Mr NW is rapidly making his way through his birthday book haul stack so there will be lots of reviews coming your way soon. If you missed his review of Seventh Decimate by Stephen Donaldson you can find it here.
Otherwise we have been busy lying on the beach, enjoying the glorious sunshine and trying to make the most of summer while the rest of you in the Northern Hemisphere seem to be getting absolutely dumped on with snow.
Finally, with it being the start of the new year there seems to be an influx of new bloggers to WordPress, so welcome to our new readers. Feel free to leave a comment below to introduce yourself, don’t be shy!
Also here are some of our better posts that sum up what we are about (mostly written by Mr NW who actually knows what he’s talking about):
- Fantasy Maps
- Worlds to Visit
- Has Fantasy Gotten Better?
- Can Science Fiction be Cool?
- 10 Rules for Living with a Book Collecting Sci-Fi Nerd (ok, that one’s mine)
