  • The Leaning Pile of Books

    This week I bought one book that is out of print. I happened to find some used copies available for $2 – $3 on Amazon that qualified for Prime so I snatched one up. The Ladies of Mandrigyn by Barbara Hambly This book came out in the 1984 and is the first book in the Sun Wolf and Starhawk trilogy. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this book and have had it on my “out of print book” […]

Of Darkness, Light, and Fire is an omnibus containing the third and fourth novels […]

  • Of Darkness, Light, and FireReview of Gate of Darkness, Circle of Light by Tanya Huff

Today’s review introduces the omnibus […]

  • The Leaning Pile of Books

    Right now I’m dividing my time between working on getting the new website ready to go and a review of Tanya Huff’s Of Darkness, Light and Fire. It’s been taking me forever to update all the links on the review index, but after that is done hopefully progress on the new site will go faster. I also think I’ve found a new author I must read more by – Freda Warrington. Elfland is wonderful so far – beautifully written and […]

  • Laini Taylor Plans to Write More Druj Stories!

    This was too exciting not to mention… Earlier today Laini Taylor mentioned on Twitter that there was a discussion about favorite stories from her book Lips Touch: Three Times over at Readergirlz. Considering she also said she talked about her own favorite in the comments, I had to go check it out. In her comment, she said that she definitely has plans to write more stories about the Druj from “Hatchling.” “Hatchling” is not only my favorite novella in this […]
