Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / Most Disturbing Fantasy Novels
« on: March 25, 2014, 04:09:02 PM »
Of course you don't have to get into graphic detail or anything, but what fantasy novels have you read that really disturbed you, either in a good way or bad way. I mean in a good way as in made you feel unease or dread like you would in a dark fantasy or horror novel. In a bad way, I mean maybe the content just turned you off and you didn't want to read it because it bothered you too much.

As someone who read lots of Jack Ketchum (one of the more disturbing horror writers I've read, in a good way) in the past, I'm curious if there are fantasy novelists producing disturbing work.

Thoughts?

Fantasy Art / Fan Art / My Bad Fantasy Art Project
« on: March 24, 2014, 06:16:02 PM »
So I started this series of blog entries about "bad fantasy art" a while back just for fun using MS Paint. I asked some people to submit descriptions of some of their characters and I went to work, using my admittedly weak art skills to produce some, er, interesting pieces of art.

Here are some:

I have some others I've done on my blog if you're interested in laughing and/or marveling at my skill. :)

I'm also open to doing more art of any of your characters.

Requirements:

1. Don't mind having your character drawn badly. :)
2. Physical description (as detailed as you like)
3. A little background info if possible

That's it!

Anyway, hope you like my craptacular take on art.

Fantasy Book & Author Discussion / Andrzej Sapkowski

Anyone read any of this Polish author's books?  Primarily he's known for The Witcher series after which a popular video game series was made.  I'm currently reading The Last Wish, a collection of short stories.  I rather enjoy his style as it's rather easy to read, but still captivating with all the unique monsters that Geralt of Rivia hunts down.  There are some interesting plays off old tales such as Snow White that I thought were well done.

I think he's worth checking out if you like stories that involve monster hunters and the like (which I'm really into.)
