Enchanted Forest, INC. – Novel Excerpt

Yesterday, probably yesterday, who knows with exams being the way they are, a few people expressed some interest in reading my fiction.  What follows is an excerpt, the prologue from my novel Enchanted Forest, INC.  It is Terry Pratchett-esque fantasy/humor/adventure/snark. There comes a point when a yipping dog has to be put outside or locked in …

50 Book Challenge: 56-60

Week 45 56. Wintersmith – Terry Pratchett, read by Stephen Briggs This is a Tiffany Aching book. I didn’t care for this one as much as the previous Tiffany books, but I still really enjoyed it. I think the problem with the Tiffany series is that none of the Big Bads have been as compelling …

The Wee Free Men – Terry Pratchett, read by Stephen Briggs This is the first of the Tiffany Aching books, which are theoretically …

50 Book Challenge: 46 – 50

It’s all over!  50 books in 39 weeks.  What’ll I do now? 46. Right Ho, Jeeves – P.G. Wodehouse In the last year or so, I watched all of Jeeves and Wooster, starring the delightful Fry and Laurie.  It should be noted that I am in love with both Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, and …

50 Book Challenge: 41-45

5 Books left! It is the end of week 37, and I have just finished book 45.  I feel like I should continue reviewing books I finish after the fifty, keep counting to see how many I finish, because 50 is now basically inevitable.  Maybe my challenge for next year will be to try to …

50 Book Challenge: 31-35

It is week 30! 31. Hogfather – Terry Pratchett, read by Nigel Planer I saw the BBC version of Hogfather and I loved it and it’s a large part of the reason I decided to actually read (listen to) the Discworld series.  I love Susan, she’s an excellent character.  Half Mary Poppins, half Death.  I …

It is the fate of all banisters worth sliding down that there is something nasty waiting at the far end. — Terry Pratchett We are coming to the end of Week 24/52 and I’ve read 30/50. I suspect it will be even slower from now on, I may start posting individually when I finish books …

50 Book Challenge: 21-25

21. Godless – Dan Barker I thought his personal journey from being an Evangelical preacher to being an atheist was really interesting and compelling, but the second half of the book focused on arguments for why he was atheist that were very familiar to me. I think this would be a great book to give …

50 Book Challenge: 16-20

16. The Ordinary Princess – M.M. Kaye This is a children’s book and a great deal shorter than most of the other books on my reading list.  I say it makes up for those Asimov books which are long and dry.  Of course, I haven’t finished those yet.  This is sort of similar to Ella …
