Review Blog – Sufficiently Advanced Magic by Andrew Rowe

  Sufficiently Advanced Magic (SAM) is currently a finalist in this year’s Self Published Fantasy Blog off (SPFBO) and you can find out more about the initiative by clicking here. This is, in fact, the reason I picked it up. It’s not my usual cup of tea, but I’m reading all the finalists this year…

Confessions of a fantasy author – Richard Nell

Confession time again, heathens. Another fantasy author has stepped up and offered themselves on the altar of sin. Richard Nell, author of Kings of Paradise, is here to be judged.   In university I hung out in bad poetry ‘bars’ with other youthful idiots like me, mostly dressed in black like we were Johnny Cash.…

Confessions of a Fantasy Author – Andy Peloquin

Gather round sinners. Another heathen has stepped into the confession booth to seek forgiveness. Today, Andy Peloquin, author of Traitor’s Fate: A Queen of Thieves, bares his soul. His book releases tomorrow and is no doubt filled to the brim with his sinful words.   I, of course, am absolutely perfect, and thus have no…

Review Blog – Devil’s Night Dawning by Damien Black

Devil’s Night Dawning (or DND) is a fantasy book heavily rooted in real world history. What I mean here is the dominant religion feels very much like Christianity, and clearly borrows from it in many circumstances, and the world itself is a classic European medieval setting. We follow along behind a bunch of characters ranging…

Review Blog – Red Sister by Mark Lawrence

Holy hell this book was good! I’ve been a fan of Mark Lawrence ever since a blogger friend of mine poked me again and again and again to pick up Prince of Thorns. And I’m glad they were so insistent. There’s something of a philosopher poet in the way Mark writes, turning a simple turn…

Review Blog – Prayers in Steel by Michael McClung

I read this book both in its Alpha stage, and the finished article, and I loved it both times. We follow along behind 2 main characters. The first is pissed off princess, Anya, who is not very taken with the idea of being married off for political gain. Luckily for her she spent most of…

Confessions of a Fantasy Author – C.T. Phipps

Confession times again, children, so gather round and listen to C.T. Phipps, author of Agent G: Infiltrator, as he unloads the burdens of his authory soul. How do we judge this heretic? Is he forgiven? Or damned?   My first book was delayed two years in being published due to the fact I made a…

Confessions of a Fantasy Author – J P Ashman

A new year and a fresh batch of authors willing to share their sins with you. Today, braving my confession booth is J P Ashman, author of Black Cross. Judge him harshly readers, for he brought pictures and included them in a word document rather than as separate jpegs! I’m embarrassed to say that I…

The Best Books of 2017

We’re coming to the end of another year. 2017 is pretty much over at this point, and I beat my reading target. I said I’d read 14 books, and I’ve hit about 20, though 6 of those I can’t talk about yet. 🙁 Next year maybe. I thought I would do one of these “Top…
