What book are you reading right now?


#302

That came out in 2011. Still waiting for book 6.


#303

Yeah, well, I’m a little behind. :joy:

Just realized that I’m further into the show than I am into the book. So, time to watch something else and catch up!


#304

The show passed the book timeline at the end of season 5.


#305

Yeah I’m halfway through season five and I noticed there were things I didn’t know yet. I wanna finish the books too. And I know he’s so busy on the series that the book hasn’t been released and yet he’s put out other ancillary books it seems… Nbd. I have a couple days at our very slow hospital coming up so I can usually whip through one the books in that time frame. What else will i do with a two hour lunch? 🤷

Lies. It’s fourth in a series of five. But you guys would probably like it. Just finished it. Took a day. Now to wait for May for the final book in the series. :scream:

I’m rereading it for the umpteenth time.

His writing gets much better after the first. It was written in the pages of a forum and self published.

Grimnoir Chronicles are pretty darn good too if you like Noir type of stuff. Alternate history 1920’s. He also has a series based on Warmahordes Malcolm’s Malcontents that’s a Dirty Dozen send up.

His fantasy series is still on book one but it’s a mythology based on Indian folklore and pretty amazing.

I’m a fan and I’ve met him a couple times now. It’s not usually high prose, but it’s good fun.

Who did read ‘The Gormenghast Trilogy’ by Mervyn Peake?

A bit different, but the third book/volume (Titus Alone) was just - whacked out.

I loved the references to Gormenghast in ‘Lords and Ladies’ by Pterry.


#309

Wow. There’s a blast from the past. I read those back in my late teens/early twenties? I don’t remember much in the way of details, but it was different.


#310

Man, that’s a rough read at points. I read it in High School I think. I tried to pick it up again a long time ago and just couldn’t do it again.


#311

Some books are best read once and never again.

I like Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth series, always good for a re-read.


#312

I guess it’s time to start re-reading a classic series that I’ve loved since it first came out: Joel Rosenberg’s Guardians of the Flame series. It’s 10 novels and starts off with a group of college kids who get transported to a magical world during a D&D game. Sounds corny, but the reality of it is really explored well.
