After a brief (-ish) break from the blogging, I'm planning to get back to reviewing stuff over the next week or so. I have reviews of Bernard Cornwell's The Warlord Chronicles trilogy and James Barclay's Shout for the Dead forthcoming, whilst I am currently reading George RR Martin's decades-long collaboration with Gardner Dozois and Daniel Abraham, Hunter's Run. Reviews of the rest of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine will also follow, whilst TV reviews of the new seasons of Lost and Ashes to Ashes will crop up a few weeks after. I am also likely to post some more reviews of computer games, starting with The Witcher, once I can get past the interminably tedious and rather difficult opening section of the game. In the meantime you can find a very funny (and extremely not-safe-for-work) review of the game here, by the mighty Yahtzee.
Just to remind readers that Robert Redick's The Red Wolf Conspiracy is now out in the UK and has been sold to Bantam in the USA for a six-figure sum, whilst Joe Abercrombie's superb Last Argument of Kings gets its UK debut in a few weeks. Look out for a grand re-review of the entire First Law Trilogy later in the year.
With the publication of A Dance with Dragons now established as very likely for late 2008/early 2009, I will be embarking on a review of the entire A Song of Ice and Fire series (including the prequel novellas) in the summer, which I'm looking forwards to immensely. A review of the entire Wheel of Time series (which I'm looking forward to and dreading at the same time) will likely follow in 2009 ahead of the publication of the final volume at the end of that year.
