Realm of Legends


This week I will be posting reviews of Andy Remic's Kell's Legend and my reflections on my speculative fiction readings this year - what I loved and what I could have passed over (but I think the latter may amount to few or zero...)... Anyhow hope that you all had a great christmas....
Take Care...

Keeping myself on task

Books planed to review by the years end:

1. Sandman Slim

2. Kell's Legend

I will get to at least Kell's Legend - Angry Robot provided the copy to me for review...
I have been trying to catch up to Steven Erikson's Malazan series... 1200+page novels of fun and fighting so time lags are my fault ... I will review his and Ian C Esselmont's Malazan novels at length in the new year
