That one is out here Dug. I've got it from the library several weeks ago. Kinda fun, but definitely not a must.

Yes it's out here to but it's only a UK edition with the boring Gollancz cover, as far as I know there is not going to be an USA Ace edition. :|

Finished Jan's. Not what you'd expect from her but well worth the read.
Now I'm reading Drakenfeld by Mark C Newton. Interesting so far .
For lighter bed time reading I've also started Henry Virtuous Prince by David Starkey

:lol: Definitely not Pip! Not an elf in sight but I did have talking Dik Diks and Rhinos and a River Spirit... ;)

Next one in the pipeline will be a high concept science fantasy fusion series but it's early days with that still :ugeek:

I'm surprised they didn't see elves with all the drug consumption but hey.

The ganja they used isn't 'full strength' - they were Brownies though... :P

Still no elves in new one - will be dragons and shapeshifters though, with a bit of soothsaying activity Image

Not tying yourself to a genre could be a good plan anyway .

Too right :lol: Anyway - I not completely Elf-centric and it's good to write about what interests you most... next book may be a chocolate cookbook by that reckoning though :lol:

Oh yeah - Milele Safari will be available on Kindle etc v. soon - I cracked all the warning file messages on the e-version last night so am sending it off to the distributors again this evening :D

I loved that! :D


Me too. I've read that one a few times, I love his books.

I'm now reading The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint by Brady Udall. It's almost unputdownable. Fantastic read.
Undead yes -

I'm reading The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion by Fannie Flagg, mostly because it's all I have to read right now. It's readable, but not great.

Just finished reading Geek Tragedy by Nev Fountain. It's the first book of the Mervyn Stone Mysteries, and is about a former script editor of a science fiction series moonlighting as a solver of mysteries. It is also [EFF!]ing hilarious. It's fairly scathing towards fans and 'celebrities' alike. :lol:
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.
