Here's a link to twenty free MP3 lectures

...by P.C. Hodgell and Michael Levy from English 3020 Studies In Narrative: Science Fiction & Fantasy. I haven't listened to any of them yet, but I plan to compare them to what I remember from the fantasy course I once took, a course that introduced me to Guy Gavriel Kay's Tigana. What a wonderful book.

Ah, Tigana, fine book. I like most of Kay's stuff. I think my favourite bits of his writing are the race descriptions in the two Sarantium books.

Have you read Philip Pullman's fairy-tale-like very short children's novel, Clockwork? If not, look for it.

Brenda Schmidt said...

Yes, the Sarantium books. The first one made me crave the last. I haven't yet read Kay's latest one.

Thanks. I haven't read Clockwork. I'll definitely check it out.

I loved Tigana, but much preferred A Song for Arbonne. I read everything of his up until Lions of Al Rassan (or whatever it was called -- the one where the doctor chick is always looking at piss in fancy containers). After that I was done. Anything good come after that one?
