Stainless Steel Droppings is hosting another reading event. I’ve participated in the last two of their sci-fi events, but this one is for fantasy. It’s called Once Upon a Time VIII. That’s 8, not Vee I I I.
What’s nice is that this event is 3 months long, spanning the entire season of spring from March 21st to June 21st. Plenty of time to get some good fantasy reading done! What I find interesting is that I hadn’t even heard of it before! I didn’t know about it last year, yet I still participated in the Sci-Fi Experience. Well, I’ll rectify that and participate in this now.
I have some books to contribute, I’m sure. I’m currently reading Terry Brooks’ Angel Fire East and M. R. Mathias’ The Sword and the Dragon. I should be able to get to Terry Pratchett’s Moving Pictures and George R. R. Martin’s A Storm of Swords during this time, and maybe even Brian Kittrell’s The Circle of Sorcerers. If I can dedicate myself to reading all of that, I’ll be surprised, though. I have plenty of science fiction in the mix, so it’s not all fantasy.
There are some challenges in this event, and it looks like I’ll only be going for Quest the First. That is, read at least five books in the four categories.
