The Best of the Best Part: Deux! (Not quite)

I.

I was browsing the usual list of blogs and sites the other day, and noticed author Jeff VanderMeer has posted an “exhaustive list” of the best fantasy novels that writers should read. It’s very impressive, with 60 entries on his primary list–I’m pretty sure I’ve only read half of those, so far! So, I’m sure most of us will just have to get crackin’ on the books ASAP if we hope to catch up in the next few years.

I’ll be sure to pick up VanderMeer’s City of Saints and Madmen now.

II.

In other news, I should have a review of both the Alone in the Dark movie and the Silent Hill movie up within the next week. I’ll make it clear now: the former almost reaches levels of boredom in its badness, and the later is an amazingly well-shot film–although too confusing for the average viewer. Besides that, I might try to do the infamous Wheel of Time novels by Robert Jordan while I’m on this list of mostly downers.
