So, I was thinking yesterday about all the books I've read, and started to think about the very first
books I remember reading. I know I read books before then, but they just never really stuck in my head...
Well, that's all for now... I was thinking about adding Dennis McKiernan's Voyage of the Fox Rider
or his Dragondoom
, but mostly they stand out as fond memories, not changing events.
The voices aren't quite right, but I like this bit anyway. I have a few scenes written later on; I just need to write the connecting bits!
is the author of the Kitty the werewolf series of books. They are: Kitty and the Midnight Hour, Kitty Goes to Washington,
and, most recently, Kitty Takes a Holiday.
So, as I'm on Carrie Vaughn's mailing list, I decided to email her to let her know what I thought of her book. And she wrote back, which I think is the height of coolness in an author. It was obvious from what she wrote that she read what I'd written, that I didn't get some "Thanks for your thoughts - keep reading!!" form letter. So, much props to her!
Set at the end of Order of the Phoenix.
This was originally meant to be longer, but upon rereading it, I find I like where it ends.
Admittedly, Guy Gavriel Kay is one of my favorite authors, so I have high expectations when I read a book by him. His latest novel, Ysabel, was therefore somewhat of a disappointment.
It sounds like I hated the book, but I really don't. More than anything, I'm indifferent to it. My advice: if you want to buy it, wait for paperback.
Once upon a time, there was a show called Robin of Sherwood. It was a dark, gritty retelling of the Robin Hood legend, complete with the hunter god Herne.
I saw two, maybe three episodes, about twenty years ago (yes, that's 20), and never forgot them. I've been wanting more ever since.
And now, finally, (say it with me, fin-al-ly!!) it's being released on Region 1 DVD. So, now I can't wait until March 13...
Added some userpics in the form of my kitty cats. The two together are Belhaven and Radar; the one by himself is Sydney.
Belhaven and Radar came with the husband; Sydney I've had since he was two days old. His mom wandered off and got herself eaten; Sydney, tiny and blind, wandered out of the shed where he was born, crying. He's still loud.
You can't really tell from the picture of him, but he's only got three legs. He's a grumpy old man most of the time.
Dark Angel fandom, set early Season 1, for the first fanfic_a2z
challenge. The challenge is a randomly chosen word from the dictionary, each week beginning with a different letter.
Okay, this is a fic I started awhile back when I was really bored one day at work. Yes, it's very bad and kind of Mary Sue-ish...
Also, I have a perennial soft spot for the underdog - Hufflepuff's always been looked down on, even though, hello, Hogwart's Tri-Wizard Champion was from
There's a few more pieces of this floating around, and I may post 'em, just for my own amusement.
