Greetings!

My name's David and I'm a lifelong reader of sci-fi and fantasy. I'm also an author with two novels out now and many more to come.

I have a hard time identifying my 'favorite' novels or authors; the answer seems to shift every time I'm asked. I fall in love with a lot of books and I never really fall out.

I only recently found this forum/community due to it being mentioned on reddit (r/Fantasy), and so far I'm enjoying what I've seen of this place. :)

Hi there! I'm Egg, an Egg. I heard this forum lets you talk about books, specifically with people who also talk about books. This intrigues me, so I have joined you. I'm usually pretty quiet, and I like to lurk - it's pretty rare for me to break 10 posts a month, so please don't kick me for inactivity if I haven't posted in a while. I'm probably just reading the most popular conversations.

Welcome to the forum @Egg !!

Now I'm curious what your moniker is in reference to... You seem like the symbolic type

Yay a newbie!
Welcome!

We don't mind lurkers, but I hope that you joined properly to be able to reply: as you read new and old threads you won't be able to keep your mouth shut (or your fingers still, as it is :P )

Who's your favourite writer(s) at the moment?

It's not really a reference to anything - I had eggs for breakfast the morning I signed up. I also have a chocolate egg on my desk from Easter. And an egg timer.

Huh. Maybe there's more symbolism here than I'm picking up on.


And I don't really have any favorite authors right now. Last year I was able to read a whopping 4 books, not counting comics, and none of them particularly struck me. I liked Jack London's books as a kid, and I ate the Illiad and the Odyssey before high school, so it's not that I don't like reading - I just forgot about it after I left school, I suppose.

Which is why one of my first actions on this site was to check on what folk have been reading recently and buying 10 random books from the accumulated list. Ultimate goal: to read them all by the Ides of March.

Hi, my name is Rebekah and I am from North Carolina, USA. I am new to the fantasy, but I have quickly fallen in love with the genre. I have read a couple of the more popular series, such as Game of Thrones and The Lord of the Rings. I am currently reading The Wheel of Time series and I am loving it so far. I am excited to be a part of this community.  :D
