You should try those Outlander books. They have similar covers to the GoT books, and only slightly less rape.

(Just kidding)

So I read High Life by Matthew Stokoe a while ago and recently got this itch to read more of his books. High Life was an insane read and left a big impression. It sucks I lost my copy. 2014's Colony of Whores is $350+ on Amazon and replacing my copy of High Life with a used copy would cost much more than I originally paid. Cows it is...

Anyone who likes Game of Thrones would most likely also enjoy the Wheel of Time series, it is very good.

That is a very intimidating series to start. The guy didn't even live to finish all 14(?) of them

Had the opportunity to meet James Elroy (LA Confidential, American Tabloid, Black Dahlia, etc...) at the Music Box Friday night. Spent a good 10 minutes just shooting the horsefeathers about books, movies, directors he's worked with. Totally cool.

I'm halfway through book 2 right now.

I'm still not sure what I think of it.

I read the third one right after it came out. Loved how it wrapped everything up.

It turns out a “Lord of the Rings” TV series isn’t the biggest Tolkien news of the week or the month or the year.

Christopher Tolkien, son and literary heir of J.R.R. Tolkien, resigned from the Tolkien Estate.
