Review ~ Decent read
The Last Wish : Introducing the Witcher - Andrzej Sapkowski,Danusia Stok

Book source ~ Home library


This anthology introduces the Witcher named Geralt of Rivia. I think I figured out that the passages titled The Voice of Reason are when Geralt is healing at the temple after dealing with a striga and the other chapters are short stories involving his monster hunting.  It’s all a bit confusing. I’m not sure if it’s the translation or if the original text is like this, but it tends to go on and on and on and not in a good way. The way people talk is confusing and tedious a lot of the time, but if you can wade through it there are great stories here. Love the world and Geralt.


The Voice of Reason 1


The Witcher ~ Geralt takes on a striga.


The Voice of Reason 2


A Grain of Truth ~ So, there’s a bruxa and a cursed man in this one.


The Voice of Reason 3


The Lesser Evil ~ This is the story of Renfri and how Geralt became known as the Butcher of Blaviken. Also, Stregobor is in this.


The Voice of Reason 4


A Question of Price ~ Queen Calanthe of Cintra holds a betrothal feast for her daughter and I learn about the Law of Surprise.


The Voice of Reason 5


The Edge of the World ~ A town says there is a devil plaguing them. Also, Geralt and Dandelion are taken by elves.


The Voice of Reason 6


The Last Wish ~ Geralt and Dandelion discover a djinn and end up meeting Yennefer.


The Voice of Reason 7

Empowered, Volume 11 - Adam Warren

WOW! What a ride! It's been a long, long wait since the cliffhanger ending of "Empowered Volume 10" but I now forgive Mr. Warren because he took that time to create another perfectly crafted tale.

Tonight was the fast, gotta-see-what-happens-next!next!next!now!now!now! read (because, y'know, resolution to over-a-year-ago cliffhanger); gonna do a slow re-read on the weekend to take in all the details. And also, because Adam Warren makes good use of Chekhov's entire armory, I'll be attempting to figure out which seemingly meaningless little background things could be the seeds of major future plots.

Becoming Superman : My Journey From Poverty To Hollywood - J Michael Straczynski

J. Michael Straczynski is somebody who I've admired for a long time: for his superior talent at storytelling, for his refusal to let the shallow end of the brain pool screw those stories up, for his integrity, for giving his heart and soul to everything he writes.
And now I've read his autobiography over a less-than-24-hour period (I had to stop and sleep at one point because I didn't want to do JMS the disservice of reading this book with anything less than full attention) and WHAM!!! That admiration is increased by I-can't-even-calculate-how-many-times. It's a story both horrifying and grand and all the other descriptive words (even the third ones) in between and told in excellent style.
And that little matter of a 1 followed by 42 zeroes … Douglas Adams long ago gave us the answer to life, the universe, and everything. ;-)

The 5th Gender - G. L. Carriger

Absolutely adorable. (there's something I never dreamt I'd ever say about a murder mystery) 

And with a powerful punch of a message within the cuteness.

Absolutely marvelous!!! And it's the beginning of a trilogy!!! Which means hurrah for more and oh damn, I have to wait for the author to write that more. May she write fast as well as brilliantly.
