Re: Series Suggestion Kings of the wyld first, because it is a standalone that just so happens to have a second book. And that second book stands alone too.

It's hilarious and refreshing because it embraces and pisses on all the tropes in turn. Of all the books you have it'll take you the least time.

Re: Writing Software Recommendations My personal preference goes to Ulysses. In dark mode it is perfect. Completely free of distraction, with all the tools at hand, you can write chapters indepandantly and merge files, keep things in folders and it all looks very neat.

See, full screen, when I write :

You can choose to see everything, like bellow, or only the column of pages. It's rife with shortcuts too, but I use the very minimum and it's god enough. 100% distraction free and gentle on the eyes, I've used it for years and no complaint.

And F* yeah it's pirated, sorry pals, that's not a free or even cheap software, like many beautiful designer things on mac... Totally worth the money I didn't pay for it though  :-X :-[ :P

Re: His Dark Materials to be a BBC tv series
So I should read the books, right?

Overall they're a unique mixed bag. I would recommend them, but they do decrease in quality as the series goes on. You will be lectured on Philip Pullman's opinions, but I was able to put up with them and I disagree with them completely.

But I do think the new series he's working on in the same world is better. There's only one book out so far, I think the second one is coming out this year, but the universe just feels more believable and concrete. I was pretty pleased with it because I always wanted him to flesh out the world a little more.

Wow, could not disagree more. I found his newest book extremely disappointing and much behind in terms of quality. I'm not sure how a weird venture in fairyland and a vilain who can outdo heroes without any of the necessary tools to do so, would be more realistic? I definitely felt he let his fancy and plot crafting go out the window.

But the original trilogy was excellent, and not especially preachy in my opinion.

Magnus will have to read on and see for himself.

Re: The Author's Hand Writing Competition - 5k Spec Fic (Due: Sept 1, 2019) It's without further ado, dear. Adieu means farewell in French, as in forever... Literally "to god", because you'll see each other next in heaven.

Edit : It'd be nice to know who your judges are. Also, blimmey, but 2nd and 3rd place get to PAY YOU? I'm sure it's interesting to people looking to self publish... But honestly you could toss in something free... If I were to be first runner up i'd have to actively decline my prize from you, it's a pretty discouraging offer.

Abercrombie signing in Scotland Hey guys,

I'm at work, so I'll be brief, but I just choked upon seeing that we will have an Abercrombie signing at MY SHOP!!!

It's for his new trilogy. So, I'll be sure to be there if I can...
