It’s a Tuesday. That means it’s commute day for me. There was nothing for me to download yet for work so I left the house early. It’s also Holy Week so there were less people on the train. Most of them must have gone home to the provinces to observe the last few days of Lent so Manila in the following days will be really “spacious”- nice!
Six of my favorite authors on the list! Way to go Kim Harrison, Vicki Pettersson, Patricia Briggs, Jim Butcher, Charlaine Harris and Laurell K. Hamilton!
Barnes and Noble has come out with their top twenty paranormal fantasy novels of the last decade, and FOR A FEW DEMONS MORE, the Hollows debut into hardcover in 2007, has made not only the list, but took the top spot! The list was compiled by Paul Goat Allen, one of the top reviewers of the genre, who had been keeping his pulse on the expanding, ever changing, wonderful oddness of what makes up urban fantasy for longer than I can remember. Being here is an honor.
Go on over and check out the list. It feels really good to be rubbing shoulders with the peers in my field, but there are a few titles there that I’ve not heard of, and I’m going to have to check them out. And drop in a comment while you’re there! Everyone likes to be appreciated, even reviewers.
This is Gandalf praying and wishing:
1. He wants a bone.
2. He wants a new bed.
3. He wants Milo to stop harassing him.
4. He wants to meet another female aside from his mother and sister.
5. He really wants to get a bone. And wants it bigger than Milo’s.
Oh, well. Sometimes wishes do come true, Gandalf, if you concentrate enough.
