  1. ATSOT was… Weird. It’s like Weber said “Oh crap I really should finish this story” and then it cascaded quickly into something resending resolution.

  2. Peter Germany – I am a writer living in merry old England. I don't earn a living from writing so work in a supermarket, which I love! But my passion is writing. I'm a much happier human being when I'm being productive and nothing feels better than getting stories finished. This is a blog I write mainly for myself, but I appreciate each and every view, like, and comment my posts receive. Mostly what I will be posting is a sort of writing journal, detailing my progress. I don't hold back. If I've had a bad day, I'll say so. I'm not going to sugar coat what my journey is. I will share my highs and lows. I'm not just going to talk about writing, I'll occasionally talk about other things from movies to my personal life. There are things that I will not be talking about, we all have parts of us we wish to remain private. I'm no different. Trust me, I am not an expert in any field at all and will no doubt ramble a lot, but that's what you'll all come to love about me!

    I’m itching to read Six Wakes by Our Lafferty! It sounds awesome! :D

  3. I had the same feeling on ATSOT – it felt like the last few chapters were “do I really want to drag this out into another book? Nahh, but let’s leave a bunch of stuff unresolved just in case”

  4. I was a little disappointed in ATSOT also. I liked that DW had finally finished the series (although unanswered questions left room for additional books) but it had a hurried feeling. I do look forward to see what he produces next.

  5. “The Mad Scientist’s Daughter”? I really wouldn’t mind the end of the annoying trend of book titles of the form “The [Dude’s Profession]’s Wife/Daughter.”

  6. whbeebe – Somewhere in the Orion Arm – I live in Orlando Florida. I’m blessed with a wonderful life-long wife, two equally wonderful adult children, a Yellow Lab, a Labradoodle, and three Ginger cats, and two dilute Tortie cats. I'm retired. I have a spot on LinkedIn ( if you’d like to know more.

  7. @xykademiqz, I’ve made it a personal rule for some time now that I don’t read books called “the man’s woman”. I just… bleh.

    But I’ve had Six Wakes preordered for a while now! Woo hoo, can’t wait.

  8. And I see that The Book Smugglers really liked the first DARK DAYS book, THE DARK DAYS CLUB, and said the characterization was good, so I might give it and THE DARK DAYS PACT a try. At first glance it looked more like a paranormal romance than alternate history, but the review makes me think it leans more toward history/adventure.

  9. Wait, this is the last Safehold book? I didn’t know that was even an option. I assumed I’d be reading this series until I die, always getting more and more confused because there’s no way I’m re-reading the entire damned series every year to try and remember who all these characters with idiotically-spelled names are.

    And I hate to say it, but it feels like there’s no way he can wrap up everything with just one more book, even a book as big as his tend to be. I’m waiting for it at the library, so I guess I’ll find out in a couple of weeks.

    Man. Safehold’s ending. What a time to be alive. Of course, David Gerrold promised that the Chtorr series will be done before Obama leaves office, so maybe I’ll believe it when I see it.

  10. My wish is for all works with women as protagonists and/or title characters forever henceforth to eschew titling said works based on her relationship to someone else or some some feature she has.

    If she’s important enough to have a book written about her or a painting done of her, she’s worthy of being recognized as a whole person.

  11. I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced mee to try. The potential with this is endless.
