Darkwalker on Moonshae – Douglas Niles

After finishing the Dragonlance Chronicles last year, I started feeling the itch to read some more D&D fantasy. My first instinct was to move on to the next trilogy in the Dragonlance saga. But then I realized that I couldn’t remember the last time I actually sat down to read a book that was set in the Forgotten Realms setting....

Dragonlance Chronicles: Dragons of Spring Dawning – Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman

I’ve discussed my love for the Dragonlance books on this site before. To me, the Dragonlance Chronicles are MY Lord of the Rings trilogy. These are the books that introduced me to the Sword and Sorcery genre of fiction. To date, I’ve discussed the first two books in the series. So today, I’m going to share my thoughts on the...

Dragonlance Chronicles: Dragons of Winter Night – Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman

Recently, I shared my love for the first book in the Dragonlance Chronicles series. Well, re-reading that novel for my article awoke something in me. Suddenly, I was reminded of the magical world of Kyrnn and all of the memorable characters that were a part of its history. I found myself unable to resist the urge to revisit the second...

Dragonlance Chronicles: Dragons of Autumn Twilight – Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman

One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to get out a soft blanket, pour a fresh mug of coffee, and curl up with a good book. When I was younger, a good portion of my autumn afternoons and evenings were spent this way. Sadly, as an adult, I don’t get as much time with my...

Roadwork – Stephen King (as Richard Bachman)

  It’s been said that Stephen King can draw inspiration from nearly any topic. After reading this book, I’d say that statement certainly has some credibility. In the most basic of summaries, Roadwork is a novel about the horrors of eminent domain. Of course, in reality, there’s much more to it than that. Like several of the King books I’ve...

Firestarter – Stephen King

Halloween is almost upon us. What better time is there to curl up with another one of Stephen King’s classic novels? Yes, I know I haven’t really been restricting my King consumption just to the month of October. In fact, I read his books throughout most of the last year. But, can you blame me? Once you dive in, they...

Disrupting the Game – Reggie Fils-Amie’

Ever since I was a child I’ve been an avid reader. I enjoy all sorts of books; fantasy, horror, sci-fi, and oddly enough, biographies. There’s just something about hearing the inside scoop on someone that I’m interested in that appeals to me. That’s why when I learned that Reggie Fils-Amie’ was going to writing an autobiography I knew I had...

Slaying the Dragon: A Secret History of Dungeons & Dragons – Ben Riggs

It’s very rare that I pick up a new book on release day. It’s even rarer for me to read through it in less than forty-eight hours. But that’s exactly what happened with Slaying the Dragon by Ben Riggs. Now, I will go on record and say up front, this is not a book for everyone. The subtitle reads “A...

The Dead Zone – Stephen King

  I feel sort of bad for pushing all my other books aside to go on a Stephen King binge. But honestly, I can’t say I really regret it. His novels are nothing short of addicting. Today, I’m going to focus on the fan-favorite The Dead Zone. As a teenager, I read a number of King’s earliest works. But this...
