More Reviews–The Imago Sequence
Troubled by the fact that I, Braak!, only ever complain about things? Perhaps you’d be interested in reading a review by someone who actually enjoys other people’s work! Also, maybe you enjoy Lovecraft and scary monsters.
If any of these things are true, have a look at Laird Barron’s The Imago Sequence reviewed over at io9 by Friend of Threat Quality Chris Hsiang.
Seriously, it actually looks pretty good. I’m thinking of buying it so that I have something to read while I’m getting my car fixed on Tuesday.
While I’m at it, I’d also like to fire off a quick recommendation of Blood of Ambrose, by my good friend James Enge. (Haha, we’re not really friends, but I did talk to him on the internet once, and he seems pretty funny.) It is good, solid, fantasy fun–no pretensions towards being fantasy’s A La Recherche de Temps Perdu or anything, but not mired in genre cliches, either. He is a good man with a fun book, but his official website isn’t as cool as mine.
