Here's mine, the imaginatively titled adrianselby.com

Articles are infrequent, subject matter ranges widely; from writing about writing to Fallout 3 to the post WW1 global economy via a smattering of book recommendations.

Interesting about post-WW1. I'm doing some light research into the "Roaring '20s" in the U.S. For my urban fantasy/mystery WIP. I found a free self-pub history of the '20s, and the author has spent the first 25% of the book setting out a variety of social upheaval trends in the pre-War U.S., mostly around the downtrodden organizing for change. I've also done some reading recently, can't quite remember in what context, around the economic penalties and resulting craziness on Germany coming out of the end of the War.

It was just the one book, The Deluge, and it was partly out of ignorance of the era and partly out of an interest to understand events after a massive global upheaval, hoping to glean some learning I could apply to a similar scenario in a novel I'm writing.

The only blog post I expect from Rothfuss is when he's finishing Doors of Stone!
