    Right then, here DISCUSSION THREAD for Tamsyn Muir's GIDEON THE NINTH

    The RULEZ....
    We are all over the place on this book, so post clearly how far along you are and use BLOCKS for SPOILERS until we can safely assume many/most are done.

    Loved The Cars. Saw them in concert twice way back when. Still listen to them.
    Ocasek was a rock classic.

    Following up on the below exchange in the WoT tv series thread...

    The WoT series, as I've always said, has one of the best opening scenes to start a fantasy series. The best probably belonging to C.S. Friedman's The Coldfire Trilogy.

    That's an interesting contrast.
    WoT's is certainly bigger in scope and sheer epic: dude goes nuts, kills people, chats w evil dude, kills himself.... COLDFIRE is more subtle and lacks the obvious antagonist, and while what Gerald's done is clear, the reasons only become clear(ish) much later in the first book and later books.

    For sheer bestest opening in any series... huh, y'know, i'm going to start a new thread...

    ...but first some threadRULES....

    Be clear what book or series you're SPOILING
    and use the SPOILER BLOCKS as needed...

    My go to for opening scenes is a bit of a cheat, because GARDENS OF THE MOON uses multiple scenes...


    Interestingly, in MT


    Sanderson's WAY OF KINGS


    Stephen King's THE DARK TOWER.... because

    [spoiler] “The man in Black fled across the Desert, and the Gunslinger followed.” [/spoiler] pure fantasy candy in twelve words. You learn almost nothing about the book from that line but you (or at least I) wanted to keep reading.

    Jemisin's BROKEN EARTH opens with a one two punch... including one of the most viscerally disturbing scenes i have read in ages.


    More when i think of them.
    What have you got?

    Unbound Worlds now redirects to the PRH website, so that Top 100 fantasy link no longer works. Here's a very similar one though:

    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
