Hi I'm new here.
« on: May 12, 2020, 11:32:14 AM »
Hi,

I'm new here. I've been into fantasy since I was young. One of the first fantasy books I read was The Weirdstone of Brisingamen - Garner, I loved it and only live 15 minutes away from where is was set.
It's hard to say what my favourite fantasy series of all time is, I love Joe Abercrombie's books & GRRM but I think Robin Hobb's Farseer series is something special to me, a world and story I can get totally absorbed in. Currently trying to finish my first Novel with the ridiculous idea that I'll be able to give up my day job one day!

Be nice to chat to people. Oli

Hi, @Oli_1977: Welcome to Fantasy Faction. We love when new folks finds us. You’ll find a troll-free community here. Some of us have been friends now for five plus years, and other great folk much more recent mintings. We have a monthly writing contest club. As a budding author, you might enjoy it. Check out the King’s Paws, our local tavern for taking about whatever. And lots of threads on books we’re reading, books we love, and some books some of us love to hate.

Glad you’re here!

Welcome along!

You'll quickly get used to the usual suspects posters around here. Some of us (guilty) lurk more than we post, but there's nearly always someone around to talk to. :D
