Stick to fantasy, you people have only a passing association to sf like all your kind.

I heard somewhere that Terry Brooks pronounces it SHAN-na-ra. Don't feel too bad about having LotR at #5. I'm not sure if it would even be in my top 5. I disagree about it being well-written. It felt like reading a history textbook. A really cool story with a boring narration

Doug Yurchey says:

received this from a webmaster who read my Book 2: "Loved it! You have a Mega-Mind & a great sense of humor. I will definitely pick up 'The Continuum' to keep up with Traylogy & look forward to #3." – Michael Shore of MayanMajix. Write to me, people. How many real-published authors write to you good lovers of imaginative books & will answer anything?

O.K :/

Wadah Adlan says:

There's a cool Dune Documentary which documents the almost impossible endeavor to translate Dune to film

Kyle Blake says:

Came across a jewel about a week ago and I believe that it is a story that needs to be given life. It's called "The Kingdoms of Hairpetah." By Chiedu Obusez. I am not exactly sure why I am so excited about the story, but I feel it could be the next best hit. The book reads like a movie–I have never experienced that before. Slow start, however, a wonderful story with amazing characters. The author, I think is African, but he writes like a European. I just want to recommend it and be the first on record to make the bold prediction of its success. Thanks!
