There is a lot of awful out there. Awful Books. Horrible Movies. Television that makes you cringe. But sometimes they hit the wall of awful and spring back and land in a magical valley of Awful Good. I spend my spare time roaming this strange and dangerous realm searching for hidden gems, and tearing apart everything else. Nothing is safe.
Don't simply recommend and author to me because you see there is a fantasy sticker on my books. All fantasy is not made equal. At least know the authors I like before you jump to tell me I need to read a series.
