+Martin Rosenkranz  that's a lie. you all prance around in lederhosen dancing schuhplattler and quaff enormous amounts of sweet beer. no place for a serious author to present the last part of his long awaited triology.

Have I mentioned the recent Humble Bundle yet here on G+?

It's your chance to get over 100 dollars of DRM-Free ebooks for super cheap.

What's more, a chunk of the proceeds will go to my charity, Worldbuilders.

There are some great books in there by great authors. Including one of my favorite books of all time...

It's a limited time offer, so you might want to head over there and check it out sooner rather than later.

Spread the word,

pat

In celebration of the publisher's 20th anniversary, we proudly present $96 worth of sci-fi, fantasy and horror in the Humble Subterranean Press Book Bundle.

A review, kind of.
Right. First off, this was written by Alan Moore. Second off, this is a continuation of a series that I'm dearly fond of. Chronologically, it's a prequel, but it should real...

Hey there everyone,

There's only two hours left to buy a set of lovely DRM free ebooks at a bargain price while supporting a cool publisher and making the world a better place.

I've got some events coming up, and they've coming up soon.

Swing by the blog and take a look at where I'm heading, or just mindlessly share this post around in order to help spread it to people who might miss it otherwise....

"...back when I was 10 or 11, I was in a convenience store with my mom. I saw a rack of comics and thought to myself, "Maybe I could buy one. Maybe this would be cool..."

So I picked one at random off the rack, took it home, and read it.

It freaked my shit out. Like, all the way out. Absolutely terrified me.

I didn't understand what was going on (it wasn't the first book in a series) but there were some kids goofing around with a Ouija board, and then some sort of fucking monster appeared and killed them. There was blood everywhere.

I hid the comic in my toybox and tried not to think about it. I didn't pick up another comic until I was in my twenties and already in college..."
When I was a kid, I didn't read comics. This is a little strange, as I loved picture books. And I loved reading. Even so, I'd just never gotten into it. But back when I wa...

I love it when artists I admire are also people I can respect.

I was going to say "It's a rare combination", then I realized I was replying to Rothfuss. Not so rare after all.
