Hi, I'm new. The monthly comp has drawn me in, looking forward to posting there in a bit.

By way of introducing myself, a bit of bio:

By Their Books Yea Shall Know Them
Recent reads include Sleeping Beauties by Stephen and Owen King, The Last Panther (WW2 tankie memoir, nothing to do with sad demise of big cats), A Little Hatred by Joe Abercrombie (good return to form by Mr Abercrombie), City of Souls by Adrian Tchaikovsky, Final Crisis (DC comics). Just started The Grey Bastards.

Yup, I like fantasy, sci-fi, comics and history. Occassionally I nip over to LA to see how Philip Marlow is doing, as well.

Just Finish The Damn Book Award
Yes, I'm looking at you Patrick Rothfuss. For the love of God, man, its been nearly ten years.

Never Seen Star Wars Type Answer
I've never read anything by David Eddings. Or Raymond Feist. Eh .. or Terry Brooks. Honestly, I'm not a bad person ;)

Favourite Fantasy Story?
A Dozen Tough Jobs by Howard Waldrop.

Tea?
Black, no sugar, slice of ginger, please.

Welcome Caith, tea guy here :)

This is a very friendly and troll-free forum. Feel free to write about anything and you can also revive old threads, too!
Kallor shrugged. 'I've walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I've commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I've spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

'Yes' said Caladan Brood. 'You never learn'

Welcome!
Feel free to post anywhere, even old threads.

I really liked the way you introduced yourself, and it feels you're going to get lots of ideas for your next books! We like giving recommendations, especially things that aren't usually much talked about hehe ;D

You mention LA, does it mean you're in the USA? We have people from everywhere :D

Hi Bea,

No, 'fraid I'm nowhere near the mean streets of LA. I live beyond The Wall , in the land of forever winter. Or as we like to call it, Scotland.

And that line is for strangers, I've had great weather 90% of the time I've been north of the Wall ;)
