The cover of the next book of the Inheritance Trilogy by N.K. Jemisin is out and yet another win. I'll have to put these on my "to-read" list for the covers alone. Oh yeah, I judge books by their covers and freely admit it.
The UK cover for Sanderson's new epic, The Way of Kings is out and this is one of the few cases where the US cover (below) wins out in my book.
I promise to get over my obsession with Peter V. Brett as soon as I read The Desert Spear (well, until the next installment comes out), but here's a great interview over at SFF Chat.
Also find an interview of The Conqueror's Shadow author, Ari Marmell at A Dribble of Ink in classic Aidan style. Great stuff.
Reading For Free
After greatly enjoying Brent Weeks' Night Angel Trilogy it may be understandable that I'm pretty excited for The Black Prism, especially since the first 3 chapters have been released. I do have to warn that there may still be changes as this is still at the manuscript stage.
Any Neil Gaiman fans out there? Ever since I saw Stardust, I couldn't help but love the guy. I mean, Robert Deniro in a tutu. Well, he's got some short stories up on his website, Gaiman, not Deniro.
And we've got a short story (PDF) from the above-mentioned Ari Marmell in The Conqueror's Shadow universe (however it's not necessary that you read the book first).
Yup, great video and I'm happy to celebrate Voyager's 15 years. Here's to 15 more!
HBO's A Game of Thrones news
Is there any way this is going to be bad?
I've been really impressed with the amount of information that's been forthcoming regarding A Game of Thrones on HBO. The latest news is that they've obtained the services of David J. Peterson, an expert language creator, to work on the Dothraki language for the show.
George claims to be the next Tolkien when it comes to languages...ok not really...just checking if you're still with me. :-) He actually admits to creating one word at a time as needed for the series. When asked more about the vocabulary and syntax of High Valyrian, George responded:
...still works for me. :)
And that's the news...at least to me.
