Another hangout today? Yes! I’ll finding out what Dr Sarah of the Geeky Humanist is up to at 4pm Central time. Sarah is…
a 45-year-old GP living in England with one husband and two children. I’m a skeptic, a humanist, a feminist, and an atheist, and I love debunking myths when I can find the time to do so. I also love reading, and I’m a big fan of fantasy: Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series (most of his non-Discworld books actually aren’t all that), Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series, Diane Duane’s Young Wizard series, Mercedes Lackey’s 500 Kingdoms and most of her Valdemar books, and probably several others.
We might end up talking about fantasy novels. Leave questions here or on the youtube video if those subjects strike your interest. As usual, other freethoughtbloggers might drift in, too.

Yea Terry Pratchett!
Pratchett’s Strata and Dark Side of the Sun, alongside Only You Can Save Mankind are some of the best literature in the world…
The Johnny Maxwell trilogy and The Bromeliad trilogies are brilliant. I re-read them recently and was amazed at home much depth and nuance there was in them given that they’re ostensibly ‘children’s books’.

I found Briggs’ book Moon Called on the trail when I was working as a ridgerunner back in college. It was better than I expected from the cover :P
