Faithless by Graham Austin-King

Faithless has a lot to offer for those who are looking for a good grimdark fantasy where the events are confined to one or two places - though they are vast places to be fair. Austin-King really has a touch for making you uncomfortable but unable to turn away or put down the book. There is always something you don't see coming from behind a turn. 

SPFBO Edition: Noor Al-Shanti

Tales from the Asylum is a new feature I came up with for SPFBO. I wanted to create a unique opportunity for the authors to show off their story telling skills by taking their characters and putting them in an asylum room to see how they would deal with the situation. A lot can happen in a closed space...

What do we plan for 2020?

Oh hey, we are putting this post out in a more timely fashion than last year! Do we deserve an applaud, or what? Last year we more or less failed at our plans, but we also had a lot of things come up we absolutely didn't anticipate. Such as getting to be a judging blog for SPFBO, me starting a part-time freelance business, going to Dublin for WorldCon among other things. But our enthusiasm is still strong, and we are here again to set up some reachable goals so we could watch how much we actually achive (or not) in this year ahead.

Cover Reveal: War of the God Queen by David Hambling

I have the honour to present you the cover of David Hambling's upcoming fantasy novel, War of the God Queen! You might know David's work through his Harry Stubbs series, three of which I reviewed here on the blog: The Elder Ice, Broken Meats, Alien Stars. War of the God Queen will be released on January 17th, but you can already pre-order it now!

Introducing Budapest: Kossuth Square – Parliament, Museum of Ethnography

I always promise myself that once the nice weather sets in I'll go out more in the weekends to have fresh air and pretend that I socialize when in truth I never take my earphones off or look at people if I don't have to. But in the end I'm always too lazy to get out of bed, dress up, wash my hair, etc. So, to motivate myself I decided to make it about blogging - if I feel like I have to write I might be able to lift my ass. And honestly, more people should know about this city! And my culture. I invite you to join me while I discover Budapest!

Cursebreaker by Carol A. Park

All in all, this is a good entry into the series with lots of interesting turns to the plot and some good character growth, maybe not a huge step in relationship growth for the two of them, but there is one and that’s a good sign.

What’s to come? – January 2020

Can you believe it's already the end of 2019?! It definitely was a roller coaster of a year for me. It was also crazy busy, so I decided to take things easier in the second half of the month. Holidays are coming and I need a bit of a break, so posts won't be as frequent as usually. But don't worry, we won't leave you alone for too long 😉
