A Beginner’s Guide to Malazan Characters: Deadhouse Gates

Austin @8 - If anything, it's even worse when you know what's coming. That feeling of helplessness as you watch them hurtle towards the inevitable . . . I've got goosebumps just thinking about it.

Treesinger @7 - You're absolutely right. I re-read the books pretty close together and clearly got DG and HoC muddled up when I wrote this. My thanks for pointing this out! (Doh!)

Judging SFF Books By Their Richard Anderson Covers

Check out his cover for KINGS OF THE WYLD, too - it's gorgeous!

Deadly Peril Done Right: Brian Staveley’s Skullsworn

Robin, I'm really glad I convinced you to try it. I'm one of the few who didn't really 'click' with The Emperor's Blades (that's considered heresy in some circles, y'know!), but Skullsworn is an entirely different beast. I've actually just found out that Pyrre appears in the second book of the first trilogy, but I don't feel like I missed anything by not knowing that.

And you're in for a treat with Red Sister, mate. Enjoy! (Here's my review in case you're interested.)

Every Song Mentioned in Neil Gaiman’s American Gods (Plus a Few Bonus Tracks)

So I've had 'Cabaret' stuck in my head since drafting up one of our contributors' reviews of Amberlough this morning. Cheers for getting it twice as stuck! ;)

Gallows Superstitions and the Repurposing of Corpses

Brilliantly morbid (or is it morbidly brilliant?) and entertaining piece, Viola, which has put the Electric Empire novels very much on my radar!

@Techn9ne - You just made my day. I'm so glad you enjoyed the article, and that you're having so much fun with Erikson! Wait until you start book five (it's one of my favourites!)

Thanks to all who favourited, commented, shared, or simply managed to read my article without throwing up - I'm thrilled that so many of you enjoyed my little tor.com debut!

Trollhunter: Fun with Found Footage!

Great write-up! I effing love this film. Tosserlads FTW!

Creatures of the Deep: Why I’m Addicted to My Biggest Fear

This is an amazing piece. You captured my own feelings towards the water better than I've ever been able to!

Honestly, just thinking about the shadows beneath the surface gives me the shivers. And don't even get me started on those '21 images that will give you thelassophobia'-type articles (which, like you, I can't seem to *not* look at).

Guess who's just added 'The Sea Hates a Coward' to their TBR? Thanks in advance for the nightmares.

P.S. Gosse and his Anemones would be a kickass band name.
