I'm probably opening a can of worms by rating a D&D handbook since I've read/owned so many of them, but this is noteworthy for having a bunch of monsters that rather than inspiring fear and awe, inspire gales of laughter. Yes, you've been attacke ...more

Step by step instructions - starts at a bunch of mental exercises, and ends at adapting your work to large-scale performances. Very good at what it teaches.
That Deadman Dance by Kim Scott
"I began this book with the best of intentions and high hopes. Both where dashed upon the rocks of the coastline on which this very novel is set. The remains trodden on by Bobby and his cohort as well as the plebeian settlers that have somehow beco..." Read more of this review »
My Life as a Fake by Peter Carey

Another text I had to read for university. I couldn't finish this - I made it about halfway when the pastiche and chopped-up nature of the book finally got to me. What I did read of it was intermittently entertaining, but the writing is too precious ...more

Read this a while back, just adding it to the library. Book-wise, it's an enjoyable read and the Dark Sun milieu is appealing. There's nothing that goes beyond fantasy tropes with this book and if you're after weighty literature, then this isn't it.

More of the same and it's mostly all good. My reviews for the previous books in this series generally hold true here.
Darkwell by Douglas Niles

The least of the trilogy. The romantic squabbling between Tristan and Robyn was an unsuccessful contrivance that weighed the book down. There's also a lot of non-action and non-progress in the narrative - we spend an awful lot of time plodding from p ...more

I read this a while ago - just updating my library. This book is pretty much like the rest of the Forgotten Realms books - popcorn, lightweight and great fun. And it's a better book than the video game it's based on.
