Seventh Decimate (The Great God's War #1) By: Stephen R Donaldson

Seventh Decimate (The Great God's War #1)Seventh Decimate by Stephen R. Donaldson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is my first exposure to Stephen Donaldson, and honestly...not quite sure what to think. It is an enjoyable read. I really like the concept., but the language is a problem with me. Before I get slapped in the head, there is NO doubt the man is a talented writer, it is just the language has a very dry feel to it, there is a great deal of passages full of 10 dollar words and gold plated phrasing when you very well could make it lot cleaner. THAT is a problem with me, If you try to talk over my head and its not necessary, I won't bother with you.

If you are a fan of epic fantasy, you will probably enjoy this. Will you be clamoring for the next book? that remains to be seen.

Waiting for the Punch: Words to live by from the WTF podcast By: Marc Maron

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I used to be way more social than I am now, I don't know what happened but the older I got, the more inward I went. That is one of the reasons Marc Maron and the WTF podcast fascinate me. Maron is a bundle of issues and the last person you would expect to be easily one of the better interviewers I have ever heard. He feels like he has a honest need to be totally open with his guests, and has a great talent in bringing out the marrow in the figurative bones of the people he is talking with.

Waiting for the Punch is a terrific collection of interviews and pieces of conversations from the WTF podcast, if you are fan of the show, or a fan of interviews on a variety of subjects, this is a must read.
