Seven Deaths of an Empire by GR Matthews.
Ooooh that's on my list, but only next year when the paperpback's out...

I finished The deathless and started with The ruthless, by Peter Newman.
I'm glad I re-read book 1, because although I remembered bits and pieces, not the details, and it makes a lot more sense with all the details.
Also, if you want a writer who actually makes a proper ending in book 1 while at the same time setting the scene for the rest of the trilogy, here you go! Go Pete!

I'm reading Reaper Man, and liked it a lot, although I think I'd say I do like Mort a bit more. I'm kind of waiting for my orders of the 2nd and 3rd books of the Red Rising trilogy though.

Writers' Corner / Re: How much did you write today?

I did some rewriting on a short story. It was originally intended to be a humorous send-up of RPG fantasy, but it seems no one I've submitted it to agrees. So I'm trying to rework it into a straight fantasy. Only got about 1800 words into it and I'm finding it tougher than writing the initial draft.

...and I finished the rewrite :D  About 4300 words, the title is "The Villain We Deserve." An aspiring hero can't seem to land a solid job, so he tries his hand at being a villain instead. Still some dry humor (I hope) but hopefully none of the places that rejected it, which is all of them, recognize it when I resubmit.

I'll need to re-read those. I don't remember much about them.

I just picked up the paperback of Peter Newman's The boundless, which was published yesterday.
Looking at the covers online for my catalogue, I notice that some editions have a recc by Mark Lawrence, others Adrian Tchaikovski and mine's by Robin Hobb ;D

I also got Bennett's Shorefall, wahey!
I might read it later though, just before book 3 gets published... which is unknown at the moment :-\
