cover by Lauren Panepinto

My normal Duck and Covers feature was co-opted yesterday by Tor.com to give a shout out to the brilliant artist voice at Orbit Books. Here’s an excerpt from the article with a link to the complete article. Art is important. It’s important socially and culturally and, when it comes to publishing, commercially. The cover art is the… Read more »

The Abercrombie Reread–How much blood will be spilled?

Today begins my deep, dark, dive into the mind of Joe Abercrombie. I touch on my interpretation of grimdark, what Abercrombie is trying to accomplish in The First Law Trilogy, and begin rereading the prologue.

Today I wrote a post somewhere else…

I didn’t get a copy of A Memory of Light from Tor. But, the Mad Hatter did. He didn’t feel up to date enough in the series to review the book, so he paid it forward and I offered to write the review for his site. He also says some nice things about me at… Read more »

Our first Friday Five for 2013 is a doozy, with three of the interweb’s more thoughtful genre reviewers swinging by to chat… Read more »

Smugglivus 2012–My Contribution

Ana and Thea from the Book Smugglers contacted me a few months ago and asked me to write a post for their annual Smugglivus event.

A New Organization Formed at Bastard Books

Almost two months ago, Bastard of Bastards Books asked me to write a guest post about why I’m not so jazzed with urban fantasy. I agreed, but it wasn’t a real easy post to tackle and I kept fussing with it. I finally got around to finishing it, and he finally got around to posting… Read more »

With Kameron Hurley’s final novel in her Bel Dame Apocrypha being released, I thought it would be appropriate to rerun my God’s War and Infidel reviews at A Dribble of Ink, before publishing a review of Hurley’s concluding volume, Rapture. I had a problem though, I didn’t really think my review of either of the first two novels was all… Read more »
