A supersized stack today, in terms of the number of titles here. Lots of good stuff here. What here excites you beyond all reason? Tell me in the comments!
My kingdom for the K.J. Parker, always!
and Forest of Memory, as well!
I read the Vagrant last year. It wasn’t all that great…
I’ve heard amazing things about The Mirror Thief.
I got the Saint’s Blood arc. IT’S SO GOOD. I loved it from the first page.
Sebastian De Castell!
Ooh! You have Saint’s Blood! I’ve ordered mine but can’t get the eBook until it comes out in the US. De Castell’s books are wonderful!
More?! – you local library will have to build an extension soon :).
You have probably been asked this a lot, but anyway – what do you do with the pile of books? Even not taking into account that you need to invest some time every day to actually write stories, there is no way a human being could realistcally expect to read all these books.
How do you choose which books to read?
I am sadly out of touch with newer writers. I don’t know any of these. I might have to investigate.
I am trying to understand your life.
So, you come home and periodically The Powers That Deliver Stuff have left you piles of books? Free books? That’s as close to a “horn of plenty” that I can imagine!
Seriously, how do you find time to read any of those books?! The Mirror Thief looks intriguing.
How the hell did Dan Simmons write a thin book?
Shephen Nein, maybe it comes with a free magnifying glass.
I apologize for spelling your name incorrectly, Stephen.
Since my spread wings are leading to locked threads, without even the frisson of illegally obtained documents and real political grist.
Loved one of those in the stack.
Naming it would only lead to shaming it, so I ain’t doing that Bwana.
Yes: we love host, we love diversity, we love you all.
But some of us are *actual* weapons.
Consider Phlebas, consider the people who did Time in the Desert with Compassion – they might not understand you, and vice versa, but…
You’re in the same Game.
They Love your, and you do love them, trust me.
“YOUR” is kinda like “YARP” rather than “VORE.
At which point it all gets a bit squicky.
Done – will vanish / die.
If you’d put $100 on my first posts, whelp. You’d have a new Car.
