Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / Re: Quick Book Recommendations Again
« on: September 17, 2019, 12:25:02 AM »
Rivers of London, Peter Grant seriess is my favourite Urban Fantasy and always glad to recommend. Best read in order because of ongoing background story and character interaction.  It is unusual, humourous and with many fascinating characters including the best deities EVER.

We have a thread here

PS For those recently doubting the efficacy of Goddesses, or expressing boredom with the divine, please note my retributive power is not confined to dragons.

Voted. Really enjoyed all these stories and hard to narrow down to two votes. None of them left me yearning for any of the jobs ;D. Thank you all.

Thank you all for lovely birthday wishes. @Rostum I had a four day birthday with my children and grandchildren all together for a special treat. I was spoiled to bits and ate far too much, including a surprise birthday pannacotta at a restaurant w accompanying singing ( so embarrassing).  ;D
@ScarletBea that is exactly what I need to recover from sll the fun. Love the bright pink bra. :)
Still not old enough to become the oldest Ty, as the original is immortal, but doing my best to reach 100 @xiagan
Hi @isos81 you are right about young ladies, but some of us  reach a  stage when we..are happy to celebrate how far we have made it, so happy to say this was my 78th. Feisty old dragons still keeping claws sharp, Inks.
Thank you all once more, AAV, dear northern wizard friend, & @NightWrite  too.
 Long live FF  best Forum ever. Now shall spend today reading the Writing Contest and voting.
 :D

Thanks, @tebakutis . ;D
Also grateful thanks to Inks, @S. K. Inkslinger for a great short story on audible, that was a treat and I enjoyed the twist. I promise will be giving all forests a miss, who in their right mind would go into a forest at sundown ? ;D

Condragonations @JMack, happyto give you my vote, great story but insidious rebellion against The Supreme Masters of the Universe should really be discouraged.  :P

Yay, the summon worked! Glad to have you back here again, Lady Ty!  :D  Best wishes for your good health and that your claws will always be sharp and that your eyes will be sharper. You could have all the imaginary hoards of treasure I've ever thought about, hahah.  :D

And if you like to listen to audibles, well, I have a short story that was put into audio by a guy I happened to know on a writing blog here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YeTKCaXpgL4&t=1s. It's a horror story, not sure if you'll enjoy it or not but you could probably open it to the kids and scared them into staying awake all night!  ;D


Thank you for the kind wishes, Inks,  look forward to the amazing imaginary treasure. Also very appreciative of link to a new exciting audible. Glad you warned me about content, will look forward to listening later today, definitely not when it is dark outside.

I used to talk with @Lady Ty a lot, and had no idea where she had went off to for quite a while now.

Hello Inks, waving from Australia where it was an unbelievable -1C this morning, while everyone in UK is being sunfried. I still lurk and try to keep up, but RL intrudes and takes a lot of organising, plus eyes and claws of this very Ancient Dragon Duchess do not always obey her wishes. Send more gold and jewels for my hoard, please. ;D very happy to read about your translating talents being appreciated, congratulations.

Which reminds me, @tebakutis overjoyed to hear your books will be on audible, because I cannot read pages of print anymore. I fall asleep in audible too, but can always go back to where I started.  ::) Please make sure to post full details here and link my name in so I can listen as soon as it is available.

Voted. Hi all writers want you to know I always read and vote but don't always remember to say so here. It is a special end of month treat and thank you for all the stories that entertain me so well. But this month I am rather concerned about all your visions of our possible futures. Cue, @xiagan & @ScarletBea, do we need a theme of joy, happiness, laughter &  hope ?  ;D

Recently saw best possible advice in reply to this title question, worth passing on, think it was from Neil Gaiman

" Don't use them as characters in your plot, think of them as people living a life of their own."

Makes so much sense.

Waving a hello to all friends in FF. Stuck in bed and flying high on amazing meds so all is well and I began to plan a shopping trip to Singapore.  ::) Downside is I know I have to come off them again and back  to Earth  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Keep going, it all comes together. That was my favourite book last year. Do hope you like it. ;)

Very happy to see you back @Eclipse. Just dropping in to mention the two books of the Sarantine Mosaic by Guy Gavriel Kay.  Sailing to Sarantium and Lord of Emperors. Set in Kay's fictional equivalent of The Ottoman Empire. Byzantine Empire
Two of my favourite GGK books, highly recommended but only a little very subtle magic that intrigues and has effect.

Thought it was the Byzantine Empire, not the Ottomans? Slightly different kettle of fish.
Thanks Peat, you are quite right.Warning folks I am sometimes in need of a Fact Check now. Darn  :-[
