The Great Peace

Date Sun, July 1 2012

It took me a long time to get around to reading this book by Ryan George Kittleman. I was offered it, downloaded it, couldn’t get it to my Kindle.. and promptly forgot all about it. To be honest, I considered backing out of my commitment. I probably shouldn’t admit that here, but I was just […]

Something a little different.,

Date Thu, May 15 2008

I recently finished The Color of Magic, the first Discworld book by Terry Pratchett. Although short, it was really a fast read. It’s satirical and irreverent without being wordy, poking fun at many fantasy cliches which have dominated the genre for years. Yet, Pratchett uses some of these himself as well as some creative techniques. […]
