The Shadowdance Trilogy

Saw today that David Dalglish’s excellent Shadowdance Trilogy is only three bones.  That’s a buck a piece for you mathematically challenged.

Not sure if it’s a special or what, but it’s a great price for a really great bit of heroic fantasy kit.  If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

It Gets Worse


A nice PSA (that’s Public Service Announcement for you non-Americans) for those of you suffering PTSD (that’s Post Traumatic Stress Disorder for you acronym-challenged folk) after reading George R. R. Martin’s “A Storm of Swords.”  I just finished it myself, and I’ll be on to “A Feast for Crows” soon enough.  Just as soon as I do some laundry… maybe wash the car… read something else, ANYTHING else.

Based on everything I’ve heard from friends and reviews, this pretty much sums up why I’m dragging my feet on it.  Spoiler alert, don’t watch if you’re not through book 3 yet.

Let’s Hope We Make it Through the Winter

This song pretty much sums it up.


I worry about Martin.  He’ll turn 64 this year, and while that’s not EXTREMELY old in the grand scheme of today’s life expectancy, he’s… well, how shall I put it?  He looks to be at high risk for Type 2 diabetes.  If he doesn’t hurry up, he’ll pull a Jordan on us, and winter will never come.

So please, George.  Take care of yourself.  Otherwise HBO will have to make things up and change the story to be nothing like the books.  And nobody wants that.
