T.R. Preston and 4 other people liked Brent's review of A Song of Three Spirits:
A Song of Three Spirits by J. Zachary Pike
"A classic retelling of A Christmas Carol with probably a more. . . realistic character arc than Scrooge's.

I'm just a huge fan of anything & everything that J. Zachary Pike has written.
Orconomics remains one of my favorite books of 2020.

Jonathan O'Neill
Jonathan O'Neill is on page 49 of 238 of The Gunslinger: "Her voice, warped and distorted, cut through the babble like a dull ax through a calf's brain."

I think Mr.King's been listening to my fiance singing in the shower! He-yo!... Just mucking around, having a bit of fun.

Stephen King
“I do not aim with my hand; he who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I aim with my eye.

I do not shoot with my hand; he who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I shoot with my mind.

I do not kill with my gun; he who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father.
I kill with my heart.”
Stephen King, The Gunslinger

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men, doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

William Shakespeare
“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.”
William Shakespeare

J.R.R. Tolkien
“It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going, because they were holding on to something. That there is some good in this world, and it's worth fighting for.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

No problem. LOTR is of course a classic. If you like it, you would probably also get a kick out of Name of the Wind. Thanks for accepting! :)
