Hi to all. Welcome to my prestigious visitors from the art world. I continue to add links to blogs that I frequent and to other web sites that I enjoy. If any of you would like to add a link to my own humble site on your blog, I would love it. Now, down to business.

If you are like me (and I know I am), then you like J.R.R. Tolken’s work. Here’s a book series that is so incredibly awesome that I have no other adjectives to describe it. Awesome. It is The Song of Ice and Fire cycle written by George R.R. Martin. It starts off with A Game of Thrones. The book series is complex and character driven. It’s detailed and feels real. It will make you laugh and cry and upset. It is really well written and each book is better than its predecessor. I listened to the entire series (so far) on Audio CD and they are fantastic. Great voice characterizations by Roy Dotirce. So if you like medival stories, or people with two “R”s in their middle name. Check it out. I promise you wont be disappointed.

Game of Thrones

If you like podcasts and like books check out KQED’s The writer’s block. It has authors reading chapters or exerpts from their books. I really enjoy it. Varying stories and varying themes. There is something for everyone. The most recent one I really liked was titled The Secret Language of Sleep. Very amusing. You can get it direct from their website or download it through iTunes.

Well that’s enough for now. I hope you all are well. Feel free to leave me comments and keep checking in. Thanks.
