    AUdible.com has been a running a 2-for-1 sale since the pandemic kicked in. The books change every week and the sff selection this week is particularly good.
    Michael Sullivan, Anthony Ryan, Brent Weeks, RF Kuang, Brian McClellan all have books on there now, most are bk1 in a series. Daniel OMalley's Rook that i raved about a while ago is on there. So is Claire North's First Fifteen Lives of Harry August. Worth a look.

    Humble Bundle has a 'The Incal and Beyond' bundle up that is beyond worthwhile.

    Seriously, take a look, ignore the soft core pr0n unless that's your thing... The complete INCAL is there and that alone is worth more than the price of the entire bundle.

    Well shit, I'd already bought the $1 tier (because why not) but I guess it sounds like I'll be springing for the whole shebang now.


    I am blasting thru CARTHAGO and loving it. Giant sharks, conspiracies, dueling corporate agendas, underwater ruins, great art, dense text... The Bundle has 1-5, am on 3, pretty much guaranteed i'll buy 6-10 to finish the story.

    And I understand what people are saying about picking up on the foreshadowing when you reread. That is satisfying, but for me it's just not enough to outweigh the joy of reading the series for the first time. It was like there was a sense of discovery and charting unknown territory.


    FWIW, the reread provided, for me, a similar sense of discovery... arguably moreso..., because there is so much (seriously, SO MUCH) that the reader cannot catch or recall until they've gone through the whole series and come back again. Little refs, minor mentions, those italicized chapter openers... my first reread post HoC was MIND BLOWING. My first complete reread post TCG was brilliant. The six or so rereads in between... OK FINE I HAVE A PROBLEM

    I seem to be coughing. Once! Once every two days. I don't even think I'm sick. Just water down the wrong pipe, the ac maybe? But now and until this stupid pandemic is over every little thing is a worry.


    I'm sure it's nothing. You'll be fine.

    Unbound Worlds now redirects to the PRH website, so that Top 100 fantasy link no longer works. Here's a very similar one though: https://reedsy.com/discovery/blog/best-fantasy-series

    Because some mobile browsers don't resize and it makes the thread unreadable.

    Just out of curiosity, why is it necessary to spoiler big pics on this forum? They go off the page and don't cause the text to unwrap, and they get resized in mobile browsers. I don't mind doing it; just asking.

    There is a word to describe that pic, I just found one in the depths of my convulsing brain. It's DISTURBING but in a funny way.

    If you're keeping score, I think my conversation (in a WoT thread, I think) with that one noob-troll about how to get banned from Malazan is worth a few. (i.e. "I recommend telling Malaclypse he's a douchebag.")

    When the new order rises, lazy posters will be among the first to be purged.

    Good call with the spoilers tags. I didn't want to add them because it makes it extra work to read posts :D
