Wel lnow. That didn’t quite go as planned. New Employment has kept me from my reviews, though it has not kept me from reading. If no new issues arise, the next while should result in the posting of the reviews which wre supposed to be up back around Halloween.
Neil Gaiman, being the industrious author and promoter of reading that he is, has come up with the idea for a new Halloween tradition. He calls it “All Hallow’s Read,” and I have to say, I for one think that it is an awesome idea. You can read more about it here: http://www.allhallowsread.com/
To quote Gaiman,
It’s simply that in the week of Hallowe’en, or on the night itself, you give someone a scary book.
Straightforward. And he even has a few lists of suggested reading. In honour of this more-than-worthy up-and-coming tradition, for the remaining days in October, I will be posting reviews of a more Halloween and horror-friendly variety, while still staying well within the bounds of fantasy literature. That means no slasher/thrillers. Just some good/bad/mediocre supernatural books. Time to get posting! Many books to read, many reviews to write, and only two days to do it in.
Welcome to The Fantast, a new blog reflecting my interest in fantasy in all of its media forms, but with a special focus on books and video games.
