New Index

Man, 2010 already. In just a couple of days, the Hotlist will be five years old. And with 227 book reviews thus far, I don't know how many interviews, and countless genre-related post as well as a lot of unrelated crap, I thought it was about time to update the index. Here's what happened so far in case you missed it. . .;-)

Thanks!

ediFanoB said...

Thanks! That's quite helpful for people like me who didn't follow since the beginning. Five years and 227 book reviews is impressive and I can't imagine. This is the ninth month in my short blogger life.

Gabriele C. said...

How about an alphabetic list like everyone else does, so that readers can find the reviews and interviews directly on your blog without having to use google search?

Patrick said...

I'd love to have the time to put together an index in alphabetical order. Alas, I don't...=(

murf99 said...

Great blog Pat. Been reading now for a few weeks and have purchased some new books because of your reviews (Erikson, Abercrombie, Scott Lynch to name a few) Got a few of my friends interested too.

Two questions?

Why do u hate/and never review Terry Brooks and Terry Goodkind? I would have never loved the fantasy genre as much as I do now if it wasn`t for Brooks.

You ever going to review A Fest For Crows? You must have read it by now. Really enjoyed your reviews of the first three in ASOIAF. And totally agree that Tolkien never wrote anything as good as ASOS.

Anyway great blog. Look forward to reading more in the future.

Susan said...

Pat,
Great blog. I was looking around for submission instructions/policy for sending review copies - can you tell me if you accept submissions?

Anonymous said...

If you're still thinking about what to read next, let me recommend Flesh and Fire by Laura Anne Gilman.
--Tom

P.S. Decant a bottle of wine first.

Will said...

The Hyperion link takes us to your Facebook photo gallery of your trip to Serbia, I think...

Jean said...

Hi Pat

Thank you for the list. Whenever I hear of a book in the fantasy genre coming out, I always look to you as our likes are similar and you have saved me money over the months I have read your blog. I don't know much about the web, but I do know how to put a list together in alphabetical order. I have no kids and am off as school is out and would be interested in helping you. Please contact me at jeanb at quadro dot net.

Hyrum Savage said...

Hi Pat! I couldn't find another way of contacting you so I'm leaving a comment here.

My name is Hyrum Savage and I'm the marketing manager for Paizo Publishing. We've set aside the month of March as Pathfinder Tales month. If you're not familiar with Pathfinder Tales, they're novels set in the world of Golarion. The first, Prince of Wolves, was written by former Dragon editor Dave Gross, the second, Winter Witch, by Forgotten Realms author extraordinaire Elaine Cunningham, and the third (Plague of Shadows) by Howard Andrew Jones, editor of Black Gate magazine. Each of the authors will be available for interviews, podcasts, what have you in March and I was wondering if you'd be interested in hosting a chat or an interview?

Thanks,

Hyrum Savage

Dear Patrick:

I am inquiring regarding your ability to review my fantasty novel. The novel debuted in January as a paperback and ebook. I would the opportunity to see it on your website. I of course would be more than willing and able to promote your article on my blog and facebook account. You can find me at the links below. I look forward to having the opportunity to work with you and your team in the future.

Sincerely,
D.J. Cappella

Bets Davies said...

Hey--good list. I can definitely trace your tastes! It's fascinating. I was glad to see Beagle on there, and specifically A Fine and Private Place. His first book and my fav, I feel it is often overlooked.

My annoying two cents: You are missing a couple of pillars of fantasy by not giving Diane Wynne Jones and Lloyd Alexander's Prydain a chance.

Thanks for laying it all out for us!!

Hi Pat,

I would love to talk to you about two authors whom
I represent at Booktrope Publishing: Terry Persun, who recently released his sci-fi, Cathedral of Dreams and his daughter, Nicole Persun, who at 17, also recently released her debut romantic fantasy, A Kingdom's Possession. As father/daughter writers, they would provide an interesting perspective for your readers. Plus, we would love it if you would review one or both books.

Best,

Elaine

Dear Patrick,

Compliments on your excellent blog! I would be honored if you
would consider reviewing my new science fiction novel
_The Metalmark Contract_. The book is available on all
online sources, Amazon has it in Kindle edition, and bn.com
is now selling the Nook edition.

If you would like a paper copy, I will be happy to send one to your
postal address. I can also send a PDF or ePub if that is convenient.

The book is the first of a planned “Epic of Metalmark” trilogy.
Readers who like Sir Arthur C. Clarke's _Childhood's End_
(http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/414999.Childhood_s_End)
would like _The Metalmark Contract_. It is hard Science Fiction,
written by an astrophysicist, based on authentic science.

Here is the Kindle link:

http://www.amazon.com/The-Metalmark-Contract-ebook/dp/B004Y60T3E

I can send the publisher's press release for your information.
There are Goodreads and LibraryThing pages on _The Metalmark Contract_
at http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11390316-the-metalmark-contract

Salut Patrick,

Félicitations pour ton blog!

Reading back what you wrote before on some books I read, you are spot on to what I'm thinking, which make it easier for me to find new books to read based on what you reviewed :) Heck, you are the first reviewer I know who liked Covenant's books :)

A suggestion to add to your tons of books to read: Sword of Shadows serie by JV Jones, a very good read.

Eric

All great reviews, almost.

I have to disagree with reviews of The Magister trilogy. For a start my text was packed full of typos, the like of which I've never seen. Then there were the tired phrases again and again ('her heart skipped a beat').

Not sure how the Magister books can get 8 and 9 out of ten when a clever, fresh, tight and (of course) hilarious novel like The Heroes also gets 8/10?

That said, Patrick, great reviewing 9 out of 10 times!
