Favorite SF Series: List of 10

Lists are fun.  Some lists can really stir fans’ passions about their particular topic.  I always enjoy reading “Best” or “Most influential” lists of Speculative Fiction books.  The comments found with those lists are often great ways to find new books.  With this in mind, I’ve decided to write up my list of top 10 favo

Re-Read Wednesday: The Magicians

The Magicians

I tried to read through Lev Grossmans: The Magicians a few years ago when it first released and fizzled out towards the end.  At the urging of some friends I’ve decided to give it another try.

Book Hunters in Brief #17 - Game of Thrones

Book Hunters in Brief Game of Thrones GraphicIf you love Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin, HCPL’s Book Hunters recommend:
The Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicles) by Patrick Rothfuss
Why? Epic fantasy fiction with good character development, magic and battles.

Looking for new gritty fantasy read?

If you found yourself loving the gritty, luscious style of George R.R. Martin, or the scoundrel or motley outcast crew is your kind of hero, then debut novel set in award nominated comic book series world Artesia, The Barrow by Mark Smylie may just be your best bet.  

Layers of story, big world building, and characters with flaws by the pound, this novel has taken a big step into the genre working off its basis of RPG game and comic book series.  

The book is currently on order for HCPL, but don't hesitate to add your name to the wait list for when it arrives.

Sandman Slim

If you’re looking for where Urban Fantasy and Horror meet, it’s right here with two great series that are chalk full of violence and language.  They are most definitely not for the faint of heart.
