Autumn Adventures

My retreat from the post-Amazon-apocalypse-GoodReads. My shelves and my reviews, I hope, will find a safe haven here.


I like to read epic fantasy (the bigger, thicker and longer, the better) and science fiction (perfer space operas).  I also enjoy the occasional biography or history non-fiction.


Out in the real world, I'm an IT professional in the Legal industry.  Tech doesn't scare me or phase me.

Currently reading

Hammered (Iron Druid Chronicles, #3)
Luke Daniels, Kevin Hearne
Progress: 94 %
King of Thorns (The Broken Empire, #2) - Mark  Lawrence,  James Clamp



I tried reading, or rather listening, to this in August 2013 because for the Fantasy Book Club at Goodreads.


We previously read Prince of Thorns in October 2011 and I actually liked the first book of the series.


But I had to give up at around twenty percent. I may come back to it at a later date, but right now I need something less bleak.
