A Chance to Show Off 3: The First Line Game

Tor.com is reviving a fun game that Jo Walton originally brought to our shores in 2008: The First Line Game!

The rules are a bit different than the first time around. Here’s how it goes:

1.) Post as many unattributed first lines from novels that you want other commenters to identify. This being Tor.com, let’s stick to SFF and its many sub-genres.

2.) First lines should be in italics. Answers not. It’ll also be helpful to your fellow commenters to post “@[comment number]” before you answer. If you’re answering and posting first lines at the same time, list the answers first.

3.) Feel free to let other commenters know they answered correctly! Don’t leave us hangin’.
