Saga is AMAZING! I have bought it multiple times now as I keep giving it to people to read so I ended up buying the recent compendium (all 54 issues in a 1200 paperback) and looking forward to reading it again (and giving my current copy of volume one to my friend).
I bought Saga at least a year ago and kept starting but not finishing, so i want to actually sit down and give it some proper attention.Saga is AMAZING!

What's "Gyo"? The cover looks cool.
Really?Ronja is great! God it's been years since I read it though, I studied in in college!
Shadows at the Door sounds great. Must give the podcast a listen.Books of Blood: Volumes 4-6 - Clive Barker
OTT sloppy horror, Clive Barker doing what he does best. The original story for the movie Candyman is in here and it's great.
Shadows at the Door - Various Authors
Anthology of stories from the Shadows at the Door podcast, amazing illustrations and a beautiful, heavy book. I cannot recommend this enough.

Don't mind silly as long as it moves along! The Stand is bogged down by hundreds of pages of descriptions of a motorbike or a guitar or a street followed by a short passage about a dark man whose eyes glow red or some shit. SnoozefestIIRC he's even sillier. Weaveworld was enjoyable nonsense
In 1969, several young men met on a rainy night in Kabul to form an Islamist student group. Their aim was laid out in a simple typewritten statement: to halt the spread of Soviet and American influence in Afghanistan. They went on to change the world. 'Night Letters' tells the extraordinary story of the group’s most notorious member, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, and the guerrilla organisation he came to lead, Hizb-e Islami. By the late 1980s, tens of thousands were drawn to Hekmatyar’s vision of a radical Islamic state that would sow unrest from Kashmir to Jerusalem. His doctrine of violent global jihad culminated in 9/11 and the birth of ISIS, yet he never achieved his dream of ruling Afghanistan. The peace deal he signed with Kabul in 2016 was yet another controversial twist in an astonishing life. Sands and Qazizai delve into the secret history of Hekmatyar and Hizb-e Islami: their wars against Russian and American troops, and their bloody and bitter feuds with domestic enemies. Based on hundreds of exclusive interviews carried out across the region and beyond, this is the definitive account of the most important, yet poorly understood, international Islamist movement of the last fifty years.
LOL, is this any good? Just reading about the upcoming show. It sounds so awful. What's the fucking point of Lovecraft if he isn't spending half the time having a breakdown for failing to meet his own racist standards?I'll be honest - I didn't even started. Got so into Lovecraft Country that I downloaded HP Lovecraft's entire output on audiobook and working my way through them.
It's ok. Not a particularly well written book but a quick easy readLOL, is this any good? Just reading about the upcoming show. It sounds so awful. What's the fucking point of Lovecraft if he isn't spending half the time having a breakdown for failing to meet his own racist standards?
It’s a long time since I read it too but the main villain in the first book is given a few stereotypical homosexual characteristics to highlight his decadent corruption. Herbert also hated Iron Maiden so I always knew he was an asshole at heart.Made me wonder if Dune had any shit like that in it, I read most of the Dune books years ago but don't remember any overt anti-gay stances in them.
