Brian's Recent Updates

Brian and 1 other person liked Laura's review of The Alton Gift (Darkover, #27):
The Alton Gift by Marion Zimmer Bradley
"I love the series, and it hasn't really suffered with MZB's death but... why do none of the books cover the time between Landfall and the Ages of Chaos? I'd love to know how Nevarsin got settled, ditto the Dry Towns (who were the original inhabita..." Read more of this review »

"Rincewind in China
22 August 2015

When my friend leant me this book he simply said 'Rincewind' at which I rolled my eyes. I must say that Rincewind is certainly not my favourite Discworld character, even though some of the books in which he has sta..." Read more of this review »

One of the aspects of D&D I've never really liked, and part of the reason I drifted away from the game for almost a decade, is the magic system. You can't really talk about "realism" in magical systems without sounding like a pretentious idiot, s ...more

John F. Kennedy
“If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.”
John F. Kennedy, Profiles in Courage

Robert Jordan
“The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.”
Robert Jordan, The Eye of the World

C.S. Lewis
“When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”
C.S. Lewis

H.P. Lovecraft
“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown”
H.P. Lovecraft, Supernatural Horror in Literature

Susan Cooper
“On the day of the dead, when the year too dies,
Must the youngest open the oldest hills
Through the door of the birds, where the breeze breaks.
There fire shall fly from the raven boy,
And the silver eyes that see the wind,
And the light shall have the harp of gold.

By the pleasant lake the Sleepers lie,
On Cadfan’s Way where the kestrels call;
Though grim from the Grey King shadows fall,
Yet singing the golden harp shall guide
To break their sleep and bid them ride.

When light from the lost land shall return,
Six Sleepers shall ride, six Signs shall burn,
And where the midsummer tree grows tall
By Pendragon’s sword the Dark shall fall.

Y maent yr mynyddoedd yn canu,
ac y mae’r arglwyddes yn dod.”
Susan Cooper, The Dark is Rising Sequence
