Saturday Miscellany – 3/3/18

Bonus shift at work today, so I’m a little late bringing you the odds ‘n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You’ve probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:

    This Week Brought only One New Release that I’m Excited About, but it’s a good one!:

  • Like a Champion by Victor Chu — A great collection of short stories — I read it a month ago and could still give a 5 minute monologue on half the stories without needing to grab the book (okay, maybe 3 minute rant…), and the rest I’d probably be good to go with if I could glance at the title and first paragraph. Here’s my original post about it

Lastly, I’d like to say hi and extend a warm welcome to Tim Miller, KL (even if your blog name is a reference to an act of barbarism), [there was going to be another name here, but I’m pretty sure it’s merely an attempt to get us all to buy iffy tourist packages to the UK] and ankandas for following the blog this week.

  1. Aww, poor illustrator got his panties in a twist. Boohoo.

    The blame is squarely on the publishers. Poor maneuvering on Goodkinds part, but totally understandable. I complain about the covers not having any relation to the book all the time!


  2. Stupid phone, I wasn’t done yet (and clearly needed to edit). I get that the people who put up the $ get to call the shots – that’s how it should be – but Goodkind’s gotta be money in the bank, so appease him.
