    Alright, let's just throw a bunch of titles, covers and links on here.

    I just finished Roadside Picnic by Arkady & Boris Strugatsky. Author Peter Fehervari asked about my thoughts on it, so idiot me wrote a review of it this morning. As such, I won't comment on it here.

    I am also currently typing up my late review of The Horusian Wars: Resurrection by John French, a Warhammer 40,000 Inquisition novel harking back to the old days of the Inquisitor specialist game and its characters. This one was, I'm afraid, a disappointment and never really pulled me in.

    Likewise, I just finished A Time of Dread by John Gwynne about a week ago, which is on the review desk as well. I got an early copy, the book isn't due until January, but damn me do I love John's books. This is the start of a new series following his The Faithful and the Fallen quartet, so you should start with that instead. They're fantastic fantasy novels.

    I'm still reading The City of Ice by K.M.McKinley. Somehow I keep getting distracted by other things, like review requests, shiny new releases, you get it. The book's been great so far and follows right on from The Iron Ship. There was a sea dragon humping the ship just a bit ago, and you don't see that every day. Especially not with that kind of... climax.

    The Big Oneā„¢ would probably be Brandon Sanderson's Oathbringer, book three in the Stormlight Archive series.I'm not that far into it, though with Sanderson, that is always relative. I'd be halfway through most regular novels already, but barely 10% through this one. It is longer than even Words of Radiance, its predecessor.

    I could list a few others, like Olaf Stapledon's Sirius, which I'm about to start this weekend, or The Fell Sword, which I'm eager to get to after recently finishing Miles Cameron's The Red Knight. There's also a veritable host of Light Novels on my shelf now, waiting for me to get to them. If only I could use The World and catch up...
