Well, it's pretty new.
Like it came out in the US 7 days ago.
Burned through Issola last night, and got a bit of the way through Dzur when I realized just how well-written this series is. It's meant to be read in whatever order you please, and Steven Brust succeeded almost completely. I say almost because even he admits that reading Teckla first is a bad idea.
Just finished up the Nyarlathotep Cycle. On the whole, liked it immensely. Roughly half of the stories were about archaeologists exploring the wrong temple/pyramid/whatever and meeting a grisly death at the hands of mummies, cultists, or eldritch monstrosities. The only one I really didn't like was "Curse of the Black Pharaoh" by Lin Carter, which involved a vampire hunter whose family was eaten by werewolves duking it out with a homicidal mummy (who was explicitly NOT Nephren-Ka). Also, one of the stories involved a character named Nathan Karr. Three guesses about the twist ending of that one.
...Wait, I'm the only one here who's into the Cthulhu Mythos, aren't I?
Ciaphas Cain, HERO OF THE IMPERIUM! is fufilling my book expectations currently.
Also, its kind of funny how 2 readers can dislike the same series but for totally different reasons, some even coming into conflict with one another. Brings to mind how hard it is to write something that appeals to a lot of people.
I'd read the Cthulhu Mythos if I wasn't so busy with fantasy. I read some of the Dream Cycle and liked it a lot.
Definitely worth reading, but maybe try it in bits and bites rather than one sitting.
I just finished Elantris yesterday.
I really should see about getting a new signature.
Got Death or Glory. Unsurprisingly, I like it so far.
Game of Thrones, halfway through Dance with Dragons at the moment, dear god it never ends! Mind you nor does the suffering of the characters.
Ender's Shadow now.
Great Scott Bean is messed up.
Kill ALL the Vriskas!: A silly fan adventure
So long, thanks for all the fish...
just started reading Eragon for the 4th time. yeah, guess what my favorite book is. i also really need to finnish mokingjay. i'm so close to end but havent gotten around to actualy finnishing it.
My Fanfic: Last Journey of the Knight of Sands, a tale of memory and loss.
MSPA Character Poetry:
You know, I wonder if Terry Pratchett is involved with Discordianism and/or the Church of the SubGenius. A lot of the kind of things (and many of the specific things) that they focus on turn up in The Thief of Time
REading one of the Saddle Club series I found at a yard sale for fifty cents.
Man, tn year old girls have TERRIBLE taste in literature.
I'm working through Witches Abroad right now!
And I hit a library book sale the other day, so between those purchases and stuff I haven't read yet but still own I have enough reading material to last me until the end of the summer and beyond! Yay!
My favorite was Going Postal, but I have not even read a majority of the series yet.
That wand the one where Rock and Roll was discovered.
And anything going on in Uberwald.
So yeah, pretty much all good. I think I read Equal Rites first, so that has a special place in my heart/
Yeah, Soul Music was a great one.
And my first was either the Monstrous Regiment or The Color of Magic. I forget which.
My second or third was Making Money.
Concerning Soul Music I should probably read it again. I was thinking about how to portray music in writing recently.
