Rereading the Empire Trilogy: Daughter of the Empire, Part 10

Welcome back to the reread of Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts’ Daughter of the Empire! This week, Mara goes to war over a gambling debt, and then faces a very different kind of warfare back at home...

Chapter 12: Risks

SUMMARY:

Mara approaches Lord Jidu of the Tuscalora over the insult her offered her, and his unpaid gambling debt to her late husband. Lord Jidu is a wealthy lord thanks to his thriving chocha-la crops, and should be able to pay her family what he owes. Unsurprisingly, he now patronises her and dismisses her concerns as unimportant because she is female—gambling debts are matters of honour between men, and she shouldn’t bother her silly little head about them.

The Wheel of Time: Hugo Refresher

The Wheel of Time Hugo Cheat SheetGreetings to you, people of Tor.com! Leigh Butler here, of the Wheel of Time Reread.

As you know, Bob, the Wheel of Time as a whole has been nominated for Best Novel for the 2014 Hugo Awards, which is super awesome, and also, Tor Books in the U.S. and Orbit Books in the U.K. have made the incredibly generous decision to include all fourteen novels of the Wheel of Time in the Hugo voter packet, which should be available now, and which is even more awesome.

Of course, the thing is, fourteen Wheel of Time novels is… kind of a lot of reading. (She understates, solemnly.) It’s a lot of reading even for people like me, who (a) have read the novels before and (b) speedread as a matter of course. I don’t think it is impossible to get through the entire Wheel of Time series in the time allotted between now and the voting deadline, but it might be a bit of a tall order for those voters whose spare time is limited.

And lo, people did ask questions, and lo, I am now here to answer them!

And if you’ve never heard of me before and don’t know what the fuss is about, the Index for the Wheel of Time Reread is here. Or if you’d rather not be chained to your desktop, the Wheel of Time Reread is also available as e-books, from your preferred e-book retailer!

Rothfuss Reread: Making a Mask for Patrick Rothfuss, Part 2

My obsessively detailed reread of Patrick Rothfuss’s Kingkiller Chronicles is over, but we want to keep on talking about the books. I’m going to post the occasional continuation post when the last one gets too long or if there’s something to say.

Spoilers for all of The Wise Man’s Fear and The Name of the Wind—these discussions assume you’ve read all of both books, and frankly they won’t make the slightest bit of sense if you haven’t. But we welcome new people who have read the books and want to geek out about them. This post is full of spoilers, please don’t venture beyond the cut unless you want them.

Magic and Dormrooms: Nina Kiriki Hoffman’s Spirits That Walk in Shadow

Spirits That Walk in Shadow Nina Kiriki Hoffman I’ve talked about Nina Kiriki Hoffman before, and how her strength is blending magic with very real things, so that both the real things and the magic resonate and make something simultaneously magical and homely and solid. In general I’m not a great fan of fantasy set in the real world because it always seems kind of fake and unbelievable—and also as if the writer thinks I’m stupid. The whole genre of urban fantasy tends to not work for me. Magic has to be really integrated into the world for me to believe it, and believe that I could have overlooked it if it was there. There are some writers who do it—Megan Lindholm, Terri Windling, Alan Garner, and most of all Nina Kiriki Hoffman.

Spirits That Walk in Shadow is a book about two different girls going to college and becoming roommates. It’s about all the every day practical details of sharing a room, registering for classes, hiding your household gods, and dealing with entities that feed on misery.

A Library In Your Pocket: How Having an E-reader Has Changed My Reading Habits

I bought an e-reader almost two years ago. My son had one first, but he’s a technophilic early adopter. I on the other hand am a panda who likes to stick to my one comfortable grove of bamboo. But when my son came with me my signing tour in January 2011, he took his Kindle and I took eleven books. Then I bought more on the way and had to post some home from San Francisco. Even I could see the advantages of an e-reader for travel. There never was a more reluctant purchaser though.
