The Royal Mail will be issuing Harry Potter stamps – err… I’m probably going to be really sad and actually buy them.
Here’s an interesting interview with Jacqueline Carey on Fantasy Book Critic (link via SFBC). She’s publicising her latest book “Kushiel’s Justice”, which is out June 14 – that’s definitely on my Must Get list. She writes dark fantasy – or in her own words:
…alternate historical fantasy with lots of intrigue, adventure and sex. The writing style is fairly baroque and the books have a streak of dark eroticism…
A second excerpt from “Kushiel’s Justice” is also up on her website.
The first review I’ve seen of Laurell K Hamilton’s “The Harlequin” is here (link again via SFBC). The last paragraph is particularly interesting:
Fans of the old Anita Blake will be happy to see a departure from the gratuitous sex seen in Danse Macabre and Incubus Dreams as this book focuses less on Anita feeding the ardeur and more on the dynamics of the triumvirates and the interaction between the paranormal community.
Hmmm…. what say you?
