Wow, those are such beautifully dark and fear-inspiring drawings, Luna! I love writing horror short stories myself, and planning to write a fantasy & horror novel soon, so I definitely love it. Although I am a start up writer myself, if I'll need an illustration for one of my books from a talented artist, I will certainly call for you.  :D

I've seen the opposite of that, someone wrapped sprouts in Ferrero Rocher's foil coating and give them out for Tricks or Treats. Just pure evil.

My local bookseller's list of new books coming out in 2017 included this book, so I found a link.


I am lover of LotR for many reasons, have read Silmarillion, once only certainly, and in the past several other books analysing and discussing Tolkien's work.  I have now less interest,  but appreciate that dedicated Tolkien lovers can become enthusiastic to the point of learning and writing Elvish and eager for more.

So, with genuine respect and in spirit of curiosity only, isn't there some degree of scraping a commercial barrel going on here?
Would be interested to hear views.

I've heard that this story is one the tales that are already presented in the Silmarillion. Is that true? I agree with your point on the commercial barrel idea. As long as books had tags of famous authors, readers will definitely flock to them without a second thought. Sometimes without even reviewing on what the story was about lol (look at me buying Cursed Child and almost buying Fantastic Beasts screenplay without checking their reviews for example)

I haven't read enough, so here goes my eternally favorite books,

1. The Clockwork Prince (or the whole Infernal Devices trilogy honestly) by Cassandra Clare
2. The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
3. A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin
4. Mistborn The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
5. The Lord of the Rings by J. R.R. Tolkien

That's all for now, although I have bought many interesting books, such as Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo, Night's Angel trilogy by Brent Weeks, and Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Mass. I also haven't read Harry Potter in english, so the list should grows.

Not sure if someone had mentioned this yet, but from the top of my mind are these, (all from A Song of Ice and Fire)

Obery Martell (he's bisexual I think)
Renly Baratheon and Sir Loras Tyrell are both gay.

Sci-Fi, Horror, YA & Urban Fantasy Books / Horror Novels Recommendation
« on: January 03, 2017, 05:57:44 AM »
I have always been an avid fan of fantasy genre novels eversince when I was young, but lately I've gotten a real interest in starting reading horror stories. However, since I've only dwelled in the fantasy corner, I had no idea where to start. Can anyone recommend some good works of horrors or good horror authors? Starting off, I like the works of Edgar Allan Poe.

Waittt, so the legendary movie, "Fight Club" came from a comic book? Now that is new knowledge.

Episode 1 of Season 4 is out. Damn, I'll have to refrain myself from checking all these spoilers on the internet, saving up to the moment when I can finally watch the series after my tests.

A week ago a publisher sends me an email that they'd be interested in putting my works of writing into print. It wasn't a big publisher, ofcourse, they had only a few staffs, and had only published like 5 books on amazon (which like was reviewed by one person lol). Nonetheless, if was an offer that made me so happy that I started dancing around the house, shout out in joy, and practically grin like a maniac for the whole day. I had never expected for anyone to read my writing. When I had first started, I hadn't even posted it online, fearing criticisms and etc. Even when I had posted the stories online, I hadn't expected anyone to give it much attention, planning to one day print out the materials and sew them into a book myself. All of that sums down to me being eccentrically and wonderfully overjoyed when I read that offer email, probably the best things to happen to me in 2016. 

*sits on hands to avoid liking more posts*

not me!  i like ALL the things!

. . . especially terrible wardrobes.

*sit on hands to avoid buying more books* It's hopeless, the piles are reaching for me now...

Happy New Year to all of you!

It doesn't work  >:(

Ahah I was also slightly fooled by that when someone posted it in a gif form. Why the tree though?

Sherlock 4 in 20 minutes :D :D

Coming very soon for us.  ;D

I'm hearing meh things about it. Season 3 had some issues and I didn't think it was as good as the other two, hopefully that wasn't the start of a trend.

I hope that it's gonna be good. Sherlock is certainly one of my all-time favorite series, despite how long we had to wait for it. In addition, it's the thing that introduced Benedict Cumberbatch to the world, and what's not to love about that?

It's 2017 here! First rule of 2017, no one talks about 2016 ahah.

Pretty much nothing besides holidays and walking in departmentstores for me. Although those in itself were pretty decent.

Found these in the (weird?) side of the internet.
