The Nebula Award Nominees are out, the Gateway is in and we’re glad we traveled The Salt Roads. But most of all we’re geared up for the March Madness tournament of fantasy. Get your voting fingers clicking folks!

Colin Forbes (colinforbes) | 244 comments It's already been mentioned on the kick-off thread for Gateway, but while the book isn't on Kindle, it is available on iBooks if you have an Apple device to read it on.

Also, beware that some of the content is missing from the supposedly 'unabridged' audiobook.

Mark (mmtz) | 833 comments What is this Mazatlan series that Veronica is taking about? Some kind of Mexican magical mystery realm of the less fallen? ;-)

Well, it's Ma l a z an, and there's no 't' in it. It's named for the Malazan Empire, whose capital is on the island of Malaz.

EDIT: Er, unless you were being funny, in which case, ignore me.

She is.

Darren D-ara made me laugh. Veronica made her a princess!

Rob Secundus (Quintessential_Defenestration) | 1033 comments As someone who is, (ostensibly), going to be addressing Black Catholic literature/ literature dealing with African and/or African-American experiences of Catholicism, Salt Roads was a pick that might help me professionally? Or show up somewhere in my life professionally? So that's rad? Anyway the point is, like Tom was saying at the end, this bookclub is great because of the picks I never would have known about in my normal reading life.

I haven't been able to listen yet. I'm a princess?! Do I have to go buy a poofy pink gown now? Or is it a princess like Kate Middleton?

You're a princess, which means you can be any kind you want!

Dara (cmdrdara) | 2071 comments OMG. I'm Princess Sword and Laser! I have to listen to this episode after work and see if I have any duties or speaking engagements or tiaras... :-)

Dara (cmdrdara) | 2071 comments Definitely laser princess.


message 18: by Dara (new)

Dara (cmdrdara) | 2071 comments Just listened to the episode. You guys are too funny. Veronica got my name right the first time. Honestly, people have been mispronouncing my name for almost 30 years now so it's no big deal. It's always cool for me when I'm mentioned on the podcast at all! I'm glad I'm able to contribute to the S&L community.
