Good Stuff

This is kind of a random post, but I found some good stuff as I was cruising the blogosphere today and I thought I should pass it on to you. First, Fantasy Book Critic is giving away a FULL SET of Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan novels. That's a deal if ever I saw one. Check out his whole site while you're there too, he usually has more than one giveaway going on at one time. Sci-fi Chick has an excellent post about the new Sci-fi Channel series Tin Man. I didn't even know this series was in delvelopment and it has Neal McDonough, Zooey Deschanel and Alan Cumming! You should definitely check it out. I also poached a fun quiz from Sfgirl that lets you find out what your patronus would be. Obviously I'm an Eagle. Go HERE to take the quiz for yourself. I would also highly recommend going to Sfgirl's site and check out her expanded post on the subject of the patronus as well as a great post on Ursula K. LeGuin's Wizard of Earthsea and its movie adaptation. And finally, a Stardust trailer for you to enjoy.

Thanks for the trailer - looks like fun! This was the first I'd heard of it.

As for my patronus - Tiger on one site, Phoenix on the other. I guess either one is pretty cool. :)

I usualy get birds of prey hence the name I picked for my blog.

I've hated every tv/film version of earthsea I wish they'd do it justice but i'm still waiting. maybe i except too much

Can't wait for stardust though!

I'd already seen the Stardust trailer. Something I look forward to.

My patronus was a Phoenix. Stranges, I didn't expect that.

Stardust got a bad review from our local news station.. but then just about anything "fantasy" does ..so I hope I hear good things about it.. I enjoyed the book!

People magazine gave Stardust a very good review actually. I usually like to go to Rotten Tomatoes so I can get a bunch of reviews. It's getting about a 71% positive on their site.

I got a Unicorn!

I also go to Rotten Tomatoes to look for my movie reviews. I find that their percentages are pretty accurate.
