just to let you know the next novel up for review will be James Barclays Noonshade
which should be posted within about a week...
Noonshade is the second in The Chronicles of the Raven sequence and my first exposure to the series and to be honest it took a while to get into the characters but I quite liked it once the setting grew on me.
Following that I will be attacking several collections published by Nightshade Books of the Dread Empire Books by Glen Cook. These I did not know about till the re-issued versions. These were not ARC editions and am glad to have paid for them none the less. Glen Cook I was familiar with having been a reader of his Black Company series in the 90's.
I will start with the collection of short stories Empire Unacquainted with Defeat
to be followed by the collection of novels I am currently reading through A Cruel Wind
Unless I receive ARC's during that time these will be followed by the first in a recent Epic Fantasy series Empire of Black and Gold
After these it is hard to say but I may try to get some short stories or books I read last year and did not review in... I would love to see books like The Steel Remains get the attention they deserve....
