Thinking of starting:
The Harry Potter series. AGAIN.
1Q84 book three - Haruki Murakami
The Twilight Quadrilogy. AGAIN.
1Q84 book one&two - Haruki Murakami
It’s really quite ridiculous. Plus I’m working at Waterstone’s in Worthing for the month, 40% discount ahoy D: We won’t have room for anything else at this rate.
The worst news in the world hit me a couple of weeks ago; the death of Anne McCaffrey.
R.I.P you amazing, crazy old woman.
We had a dragon evening of mourning, James drew the first picture he’d done in 10 years, and I did a Sharra/Jaxom and Ruth “mourning” drawing…
Might post it when it’s finished/we get a scanner.
Sorry for the short, convoluted post, but I must dash.
From Franz Kafka to K.A Applegate, Terry Pratchett to H.G Wells, these are the fictions our facts are moulded from.
Ask me anything
Stories from childhood and adult desires, laugh out loud comedies and thought provoking science fiction. Horrors and thrillers, surrealism and smut.
This blog celebrates centuries of printed literature.
“Ooh, cheap Stephen King books. Just how it should be.”
“We can go in if you like, it’s only little and we’ve got a bit of time to kill”
-Queue 10 minutes on the phone trying to direct my brother to the McCaffrey section on my bookshelves back home-
“Why are you letting me pick things up? You’re meant to control my spree- okay, okay, I’m just getting these three, look I’m going to the till…”
-Puts books on counter, glances to bookshelves on right-
“OOOH James Herbert…oh, why not The Rats? It’s always everything but The Rats…nevermind…I’ll take these too…”
That’s my birthday money gone. Todays aquisitions are as follows;
~ Anne McCaffrey’s The Dinosaur Planet Omnibus (never heard of it, but you can’t top her writing.)
~ Dragondrums, also by McCaffrey. I just can’t get enough of her at the moment.
~ Robin Jarvis’ The Fatal Strand - I’m getting chills just thinking about it. I need to get hold of The Raven’s Knot to complete the set, I believe.
~ James Herbert’s Domain and Lair. Because you just can’t beat books about gigantic mutant flesh eating rats. (I originally read The Rats a good 4/5 years back, and am still nervous when a train stops in a tunnel on the underground.)
Rest assured that jumpy, un-informative “reviews” will follow. Keep ‘em peeled!
legionofloss asked: Just thought I'd pop in and say that I've loved James Barclay's writing since I picked up Dawnthief so long ago. ^___________^
Ace! I honestly rank The Chronicles/Legends of the Raven in my top 5 series :) have you read The Ascendants?
