Boy howdy, was yesterday's a long post! I had no idea until I looked at it again last night. Well, it's a big book. It deserves a big review.
I posted the review on Amazon and Barnes & Noble last night, in a drastically cut form, although I didn't get quite down to Amazon's suggested 300 words. So, I was writing between 7 - 8:30, but I wasn't writing on Past Ties.
Unfortunately, I'm concerned I'm getting sick again. Something new this time. "Maybe it's a tumor." "It's not a tumor. It's not. Not a tumor." My plan is to eat rice until I feel better or die. I think it's a good plan.
I'm going to read my Christmas present from the nieces next: Robert Jordan's and Brandon Sanderson's The Gathering Storm, book 12 of The Wheel of Time series. Robert Jordan is and was an amazing writer. I'll no doubt review him in a later post. After that, I'll most likely read Jill Williamson's By Darkness Hid, or whichever one is the first one. The sequel is coming out in April, and the first book has been getting all kinds of press. I wonder if this book will be more similar to Star of Justice. The two Marcher Lord Press books I've read so far are not.
On with the post. I'll keep it short.
I've had a link hanging around in my favorites lists for a little while. I first saw it posted on The Anomaly, read it, thought it was hilarious and saved it.
In honor of finishing Hero, Second Class with its cadre of monologuing Villains (I misspelled villains throughout yesterday's post, too, thank you for pointing it out, people. No more spell-check, remember?) I'm presenting the link at the top of the blog for this month. After this month, you'll need to click here: http://www.eviloverlord.com/lists/overlord.html,
I can't believe that worked. It didn't use to. We'll see what happens when I publish it.
Warning: this is a long list but it is funny. Don't read it while driving. The first 100 are the funniest, although the hard-core geeks will keep reading (I did). There's some copyright information at the top, but you can scroll down. The funny stuff starts after the cartoon.
