"The gender fluidity in this is a bit confusing at first, Im still having to get my head around it a bit but it's an interesting concept and the settings are so plausible and well thought out. Really loving it still, not sure why it's taking so long to read - maybe I'm subconsciously trying to savour every piece?" Apr 25, 2013 06:40PM

No, it's not great literature. But it's got a genuinely kick-ass heroine (and get this - she's attractive AND SHE KNOWS IT! None of this "oh but why does anyone like me I'm so plain and boring" bullshit, she knows she's awesome, she also knows she...more

All too often, a trilogy will succumb to that dreaded literary curse: Disappointing Final Book. We’ve all seen it: the first book is amazing, the second incredible, but the story is left at an unbearable cliffhanger. We loyal fans wait (and wait) imp...more

Roman Payne
“88. People wonder why so many writers come to live in Paris. I’ve been living ten years in Paris and the answer seems simple to me: because it’s the best place to pick ideas. Just like Italy, Spain.. or Iran are the best places to pick saffron. If you want to pick opium poppies you go to Burma or South-East Asia. And if you want to pick novel ideas, you go to Paris.”
Roman Payne, Crepuscule

“But grief makes a monster out of us sometimes . . . and sometimes you say and do things to the people you love that you can't forgive yourself for.”
Melina Marchetta, On the Jellicoe Road

“I just bought a small condo overlooking the water. The water is in a cup, one floor below my unit.

Diana Wynne Jones
“Horses are of a breed unique to Fantasyland. They are capable of galloping full-tilt all day without a rest. Sometimes they do not require food or water. They never cast shoes, go lame or put their hooves down holes, except when the Management deems it necessary, as when the forces of the Dark Lord are only half an hour behind. They never otherwise stumble. Nor do they ever make life difficult for Tourists by biting or kicking their riders or one another. They never resist being mounted or blow out so that their girths slip, or do any of the other things that make horses so chancy in this world. For instance, they never shy and seldom whinny or demand sugar at inopportune moments. But for some reason you cannot hold a conversation while riding them. If you want to say anything to another Tourist (or vice versa), both of you will have to rein to a stop and stand staring out over a valley while you talk. Apart from this inexplicable quirk, horses can be used just like bicycles, and usually are. Much research into how these exemplary animals come to exist has resulted in the following: no mare ever comes into season on the Tour and no stallion ever shows an interest in a mare; and few horses are described as geldings. It therefore seems probable that they breed by pollination. This theory seems to account for everything, since it is clear that the creatures do behave more like vegetables than mammals. Nomads appears to have a monopoly on horse-breeding. They alone possess the secret of how to pollinate them.”
Diana Wynne Jones, The Tough Guide to Fantasyland

Charles de Lint
“I don't think the world is the way we like to think it is. I don't think it's one solid world, but many, thousands upon thousands of them--as many as there are people--because each person perceives the world in his or her own way; each lives in his or her own world. Sometimes they connect, for a moment, or more rarely, for a lifetime, but mostly we are alone, each living in our own world, suffering our small deaths.”
Charles de Lint, Dreams Underfoot
