Oh, I hate Mercedes Lackey too, so no problem there.

We have books by Faith Hunter, Gail Carriger, and Amanda Downum being reviewed in the very near future.  You'll have to let Steve or I know what you think of those or if they still aren't what you're looking for.  The first is marketed for women, the second is light-hearted comedic fantasy, the third is Amanda's entry into the Epic Fantasy market.

I noticed a while ago one of our readers, a girl, mentioned that we didn't review many female authors.  So I have been trying to find female authors in a variety of genres, and books marketed towards girl readers. Its been....interesting to say the least.  Steve and I figured I was the girly one of the pair so I got this job...  What Steve?  Just because I get manicures?  I hate you.

Hey, checked out the site the other week. I must say, you guys really make me laugh! Not to mention I've picked up a few books you've mentioned, and I guess I must now agree with you that you do indeed have fantastic taste  ;)

I love this.

Slamel (duh)

Halo 3
Fear 2

However in a few weeks each of these will be retired for Borderlands, and then Dragon Age, and then Modern Warfare 2.

Hamilton is the hardest SF I have ever seen and it is really, really great.

Well.  Its done.  The Law of Nines review is posted.  Enjoy.  Now I feel the need to go shower and scrub with ajax and bleach after subjecting myself to Goodkind once more.

I read BG's short and it was pretty full of awesome.  I think he needs therapy though.

Maybe it was the combination of the Lagoon hamburgers I had earlier that day, the two japapeno, bacon, burger monstrosities, and that I took a two hour nap after eating them before work.  I woke up the most orchestral sounds my stomach has ever made.

I suggest that if you do not want to die, refrain from eating two...

Between this and the post about cuddling, people are going to start thinking your wife has something to worry about.

But I found it a lot easier to handle because the characters were more likable and weren't as gloomy as Abercrombie's stories.

It's easy to like someone you don't know anything about  :P.  Paper thin development doesn't do it for me.  However I can see the place a fluffy, popcorn fantasy novel like this series can fill.
