Killing Floor (Jack Reacher # 1)
19, Jan

This week I review one of the best selling modern thrillers with a hero that would fit in well with Sword and Sorcery if he traded his gun for a sword. 

Oathbringer(Stormlight Archive #3)
11, Dec

Oathbringer is the third volume in the Stormlight Archive featuring strong themes, great character development, and ramifications for Brandon's world at large-the cosmere. 

Pillars of the Genre: Episode 2, The Hobbit
19, Nov

In the second episode of Pillars of the Genre, I mistakenly call it Foundations of the Genre and reflect on my most recent reread of The Hobbit. It did my soul a lot of good, and I hope this video encourages you to dust it off. 

Blackwing (The Raven's Mark #1)
27, Oct

Blackwing by Ed McDonald is an imaginitive and lean epic sword and sorcery novel. 

 

 

A Head Full of Ghosts video review
20, Oct

A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay is a creepy psychodrama set confidently in the 21st century.  

 

I Was A Teenage Weredeer (Brightfalls Mysteries #1)
06, Oct

CT Phipps and Michael Suttkus have written a hilariously enjoyable Buffyesque urban fantasy. 

Behind the Vale(The Vale #1)
29, Sep

Brian D Anderson's Behind the Vale is a JRPG inspired urban fantasy. 

The Court of Broken Knives (Empires of Dust)
22, Sep

*Editor's Choice* The Court of Broken Knives by Anna Smith Spark is a sharply written tour de force.
