Don't miss the teaser for John Scalzi's new fantasy novel, The Shadow War of the Night Dragons, Book One: The Dead City (announced yesterday).

Lot of overlap between a parody of bad fantasy and good Terry Pratchett. I expect it took a certain amount of willpower for Scalzi not just to keep writing.

Update: And a follow up, a statistical look at fantasy novel titles.

Dr Hypercube just sent me the newest from the other most productive SF writer: Charles Stross's The Fuller Memorandum, which references Lovecraft, the great Cold War spy novelist Anthony Price, and above all the primary sources on the mad White Russian von Ungern Sternberg. Since I have all of those...

Also, what do you know about your fellow Santa Fean, fantasy writer George R R Martin, and A Game of Thrones? I hear good things, but faintly yet.
