A Feast for Crows part ten! ~900-end
So I’m not much for audiobooks, but I am definitely for free stuff. Amazon just offered a 2 free books for an audible subscription and I had to get it. The thing is, now I have NO idea which ones I should get. So give me some suggestions people! Or talk about whatever you want.
Last night on the train home I read The Magican’s Nephew. Chronologically, it is the first of the seven Narnia books, and in C.S.

Neil Gaiman, long time fan, approached Robert McGinnis to design retro covers for some of his novels. They had planned to announce and publish these new covers in a few months, but with all the attention for the Starz series American Gods paperbacks sold out and were reprinted with the new cover.
So I only recently read Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower. I know, I know. My only excuse is that I read Fledgling when I first heard about her, and I didn’t realize that was widely recognized as her weakest work, written after years of writer’s block and depression, so I didn’t pick up another for ages.

Have you guys seen this? It’s been around for awhile, but it’s a very cool tool for finding new authors that write in a similar style to writers you already like.

It felt a bit strange and a bit wonderful at the same time. But one of the problems with living in a…

Has anyone read the Autumn series by David Moody or Haters? A British novelist wrote this series called Autumn a world where suddenly about 90 percent plus of folks suddenly died and came back. This series is interesting in that these zombies cannot pass on the virus so its one generation of zombies and they do not…
Today’s creative challenge is inspired by this passage that WinnieTheWoot shared from tumblr with us last night. Crime Noir as written by Hemingway. (It’s best if you read it out loud to get the full voice over effect.)

The book that broke my reader’s block is on sale today for 4.99! Anyone who hasn’t read it really should!
MTV has announced the renewal of its post-apocalyptic sexy elf show, The Shannara Chronicles, for a second season. Fans reportedly responded with “FUUUCCKK YEEAAAHH” and by “fans” I mean WinnieTheWoot.

I think it might be easiest for me with the show episodes to take things by location, much the way the read through takes things by viewpoint. Should make things more…
