Tomorrow, I am reviewing a well-known science fiction novel. Here are three hints:

  • It was was nominated for a Hugo award within the last ten years.
  • The author is a popular online personality.
  • It has been optioned for film. (I’d love to see it.)

There is also a hint buried in this post. Any guesses?


That was fun. I think I’ll do this every Sunday for my Monday Review.

Last week, I mentioned that I wanted to start doing reader interviews. I decided to call them Community Interviews. For my first interviewee, I would like to interview a fantasy fan. Here are the totally frivolous questions:

Why do you read fantasy?

What’s your favorite fantasy genre?

What’s your favorite fantasy ever? And why?

Who are your favorite fantasy characters? And why?

If you would go on a quest, would prefer to:

  • Travel to a far-off locale to kill or defeat a powerful enemy?
  • Quest for dangerous and powerful relics through fantastic lands?
  • Guide a Child of Prophesy to his fateful destiny?

Who are you, Frodo or Sam? And why?

Which fantasy system of magic would you love to wield?

If you are a fantasy fan and would like to be interviewed, please email me at tia at tianevitt dot com or leave a comment here. Maybe I can even line up several of you. I will ask for a bio, any online presences you have (Facebook, Twitter, whatever), and your handle, if you don’t want me to use your real name.

I hope you enjoy this new feature!
