I have enjoyed the adventures of both Tarzan and John Carter since I was in second grade! (I was a bit ahead of my reading level back then)

It's one of those things I just haven't gotten around to yet. I didn't get introduced to Burroughs at all as an author until I was in college. Prior to that his name was, to me, just associated with movies based on his books; I didn't know he was an author, I thought he was a movie director.
I once saw someone claim that the ideal age to discover him was when you're 11-12 and haven't developed much in the way of cynicism or genre-savviness yet.

That was about when I first heard of the movies.

Oreos Are as Addictive as Cocaine. Sweet, Creamy Cocaine.

Crim J: Yup! He wanted to get some gaming in with the babies, and we thought this was the best way to balance everything he's go going on.

Looks like we've got four players in our second WotR game. I've room for up to 2 more, if anyone's interested. Probbaly start this weekend. :)

Are you interested in WotR still? I'm about to start a second game...

A certain father of 6 mo twins you may be familiar with is planning to play...

Yep at work. I just don't get on here as much as I would otherwise like.

Really M. has a log on here?

I've heard of it, mostly in its connection to Dark Tower which I have read, but never gotten to read it. It too is on The List.

Its connection to DT is tenuous at best. The characters were to have shown up in a later book of the series, and they sort of do, but not really.

I think the Talisman is the best SK book I've read, ever. Course it was co-authored by Peter Straub, but that book is amazing.

Wasn't too keen on the sequel.

Yes Talisman was good, Black House, just ugh I couldn't finish it.

Hm, I'd never heard that, although I'm willing to accept it as a point of view. I'd even consider agreeing with it. :) I certainly discovered him early enough that those books were the basis of my 'Fantasy/SF' luv, as opposed to Howard, Leiber, etc.

Stephen King,... Hrm,... I tried, I really did. I read the first book of the Tower. (Not being a fan of horror, and I had read a short story set in the tower world I had found intriguing) And I wanted to enjoy it, really. But I had to force myself to finish it. (I hate leaving a book unfinished) Frankly it will be tough to talk myself into trying another of his novels. Although the Eyes of the Dragon does sound good. ;P

there's sure to be tons more, but...it's a start.

Whyfore the list?

I also used to enjoy Anne MacCaffery's DragonRiders of Pern series. And I have enjoyed some of the more recent ones co written by her and her son.

I don't know why, I just can't get into pern. I've tried on multiple occasions, and it should be my thing but is not. Opposed to Tarzan on several levels, but that may be more due to the movies, not the novels, which I will thumb through one day.

Heh, Funny you should mention that.
:)
I confess that I wanted to read the Tarzan books due to the movies and TV show, which I loved as a kid. (Hey, I was in 1st and 2nd grade! Give a guy a break!) ;P

But in truth the only thing they all have in common is the name. The books are an interesting read, once you either get used to, or accept, the authors' style of prose. :) And they are, of course, far better than the movies. ;)

I think we talked about this before-I really need to give those novels a look.

I read it quite recently. It's not bad attempt on semi-fairy tale but it's not exactly what I look for in fantasy and the style felt crude.


Time for Taco and homemade burritos, and maybe a quesidia or 2.

I truly loved that book. Read it a million times over the summer I spent with my dad in SC. What a summer. I discovered werewolf the apocalypse that same summer.

I liked it. It seemed more YA than straight fantasy, but the Flagg/Dark Tower connections are worth reading

BP: along with other's suggestions I would note Glen Cook's Black Company series for a well-done 'military' fantasy.

Also consider Daniel Abraham's ongoing Dagger and the Coin series

Mrgh. I've been a long time Stephen King fan. Mostly is older work though. Too much politics in some of his new stuff.

Salem's Lot was always one of my favorites. I think I've read that one 3 or 4 times.


^Agreed on the SK thing. I have bought my last book from him. 11/23/63 was a real letdown, and Duma Key was likewise. Under the Dome was also a large pile of excrescence. Ah well, he had over a dozen great novels, that's enough for any writer

Mmmmm. Grilled cheese and tomato soup.

Silver Crusade

kale sauteed in olive oil,garlic,butter,and red pepper flakes. My attempt at eating a little more healthy


2 house made Tacos and 1 cheese and sour cream quesidila.

With steamed pinto beans.


Eating entennmans cranberry orange loaf with cherry preserves on top followed by more entennmans pumpkin loaf. Been a loooooooooooooooooong day.


I'm hungry for braaaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnins!


I think I caught a flu yesterday. Throat hurts, got a mild headache and my nose just won't stop running...

Scarab Sages

Bummer, Icy. My niece had the flu not too long ago. I was afraid I'd caught it as well, but that turned out to be just sleep deprivation.

Scarab Sages

Greetings FAWTLY Folk! Happy Thursday?!? Only from the viewpoint that tomorrow is Friday. Tomorrow should be Green Dragon day.

Scarab Sages

My younger brother acquired a "period" mead recipe and wants to brew it this weekend. Which means I've got work to do tonight and tomorrow night.

The next six days will see a lots of chicken. I bought three packages of two chicken legs each for half their price.

Scarab Sages

And my kid has been napping less and less, lately. In the past week I think he's napped for a grand total of 4 hours. Which makes him a little b%!!~ to deal with in the evenings. Which makes the wife......irritable.

On the plus side, at least he goes to sleep quickly at night.

There are several things I put on the list of things I'm grateful God created. Chicken is one of them. Also beer, bacon, and BttH.

Scarab Sages

My favorites are Popeyes Fried Chicken, rotisserie chicken, and Kung Pao chicken.

Scarab Sages

And, with that, I'm out of here folks. Later.

I've been sleep deprived this week, so a flu would make things twice as bad.

Then again, a flu would also mean sick leave which means I can stay at home and rest.


On an unrelated note, I am trying to think up a gender-neutral term / name for succubi and incubi.


Androbi? Hmm that's a tricky one.


Soulsuckers?


Something more formal than Soulsuckers. Desidian Demon was one that came to my mind, based off the word Desire.

That, and the fact that they leave a body without a soul, basically a dessicated husk compared to a mortal with an intact soul.


Huh? Drivethrough is down?

Succubus - Female

Incubus - Male

Omnibus - Both

Malcubus - Neutral

Such is my understanding. Though a quick, curious googling of the subject also brought up Accubus and 'Cubi as gender neutral terms.
