Where are you in Fantasyland? September, 2019
Join LibraryThing to post.
I just finished reading The Savior’s Champion. I’ve been a fan of the author’s youtube series for a couple of years, so I’m happy to report that I enjoyed it.
I'm not in Fantasyland but sort of adjacent to it in The View from the Cheap Seats: Selected Nonfiction.
I just finished up a vacation at Venice Beach with The Pisces. I think it counts as fantasy and literary fiction simultaneously, although maybe magical realism fits it better? (If anyone has their personal theories clarifying the dividing line, do please let me know.) It was weird, y'all.
I finished Deadhouse Gates (#2 out of 10 in the main Malazan Book of the Fallen series). It was pretty good...a bit better than Gardens of the Moon. Erikson does a good job at putting you into a scene (especially in a military environment). However, there is still something bugging me about the series. All of the pieces are well-done, but the pieces somehow lose a little something when they are put together. I'm onto Memories of Ice, which seems to have the best reviews, so it will be a good decision point on which to continue the series.
>12 drmamm:, I think #3 gets upvoted for being closest to a traditional fantasy arc; I'd point instead to either #5 or #6. But you get enough Malazan fans on here and we could debate this all week.
I'm entering the hidden Nightside of London with Noir/supernatural detective John Taylor.
Added The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction November/December 2018 to my reading rotation.
I'm in 1930s Chicago and possibly at some point, Faerie in Hallow Point.
