...But first, some news from the blogosphere. Over at Atsiko's Chimney, we've got an excellent series on magic systems in fantasy. Although it's aimed at the aspiring writer, there's some truly excellent points for the casual (and serious!) reader as well. Meanwhile, at the University of Fantasy, Parametric's got a number of interesting insights - both on "snowflake syndrome", and on prologues. Over at Fantasy Book News and Reviews, there's a worrying insight into the Kindle e-book process as well.
As for me, I'm writing my review of Terry Pratchett's Unseen Academicals - while finishing up some science fact, namely The Emperor's New Mind. I'm just preparing for a series of Jim Butcher mini-reviews - see my review of Storm Front - and it's raining.
Well, at least one thing is normal.
So long, and thanks for all the books
