      Important Announcement!   07/28/2018

      Dear BCF members,   This forum has been running now for many years, and over that time we have seen many changes. Generalised forums are nowhere near as popular as they once were, and they have been very much taken over by blogs, vlogs and social media discussions. Running a forum well takes money, and a lot of care and attention, as there is so much which goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.   With all of this in mind, and after discussion within the current moderator team, the decision has been made to close this forum in its current format. I know that this will disappoint a lot of our long term members, but I want to reassure you that it's not a decision which has been taken lightly.    The remaining moderator team have agreed that we do not want to lose everything which is special about our home, and so we are starting a brand new facebook group, so that people can stay in touch, and discussions can continue. We can use it for free and should be easier for us to run (it won't need to be updated or hosted). We know not everyone has FaceBook, but we hope that those of you who are interested will join the group. We will share the link, and send invites as soon as we are ready to go. Added: We may as well get this going, find us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195289821332924/   The forum will close to new registrations, but will remain open for some time, to allow people to collect up any information, reading lists etc they need to, and to ensure they have contact details for those they wish to stay in touch with.    The whole team feel sad to say goodbye, but we also feel that it's perhaps time and that it feels like the right choice. We hope we can stay in touch with all of you through our new FaceBook group.   I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me moderate the forum, both in the past and the present, and I also want to thank every single person who has visited, and shared their love of books.. I'm so proud of everything we've achieved, and the home we built.   Please visit the new section in the Lounge section to discuss this further, ask questions etc.

    Books, mainly SF and fantasy.

    Film, largely fantasy (I was 12 when Fellowship of the Ring came out and went to the cinema to see it 4 times).

    TV, mostly - you've guessed it - fantasy. You can't beat Game of Thrones and Walking Dead, though I do like a good bit of British comedy here and there.

    Oh, and also zombies. Zombies are interesting.

    Seeing as I harassed Gaia about forgetting to post book pictures on here, I figured I may as well post my own latest acquisitions. These were from the Works (£1.99 each, 3 for £5): And this one comes courtesy of the lovely Tim, who took pity on me for missing the Manchester Gollancz Fest and sent me a signed copy of Steelheart in consolation. Thanks again, Tim!

    Thanks Gaia! Just make sure you don't forget next time. Just kidding. Yay for new books and birthday times!!
  10. Ooh, for fantasy you might also try the Craft sequence by Max Gladstone, which starts with Three Parts Dead. I wasn't totally overwhelmed by it myself, but the world is certainly unique, and I've heard the series gets better and better. You might also like Chris Wooding's Ketty Jay series. I've fairly recently discovered The Expanse, a SF series by James S.A. Corey. The first book is called Leviathan Wakes, and it's a lot of fun. Also, I can't recommend the authors Patrick Rothfuss and Steven Erikson highly enough.
  11. May I ask which fantasy authors you've already read?
  12. For fantasy, you could try Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence (Broken Empire series), or The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie (First Law trilogy).

    You should check out the TV series on Youtube - me and my sister both LOVE it. Do you have any plans for your birthday?
  14. Athena's Reading List 2015

    Horrible Histories is awesome. Hope you had a lovely birthday! Where abouts in the UK were you?
