Various Authorial News

  “3 Ps” Tamora Pierce, Phillip Pullman and Christopher Paolini are interviewed on various themes in their books in these 9 podcasts!  They are free downloads from Random House. Looks really interesting- Pierce is one of my faves, Pullman is growing on me as I progress through His Dark Materials, but I have not yet read Paolini’s Eragon and Eldest. A friend of mine recently saw the movie (on DVD) and said it was great, so I think I may try to read the book before I see the movie. The sequel, Eldest is going to be a movie as well, though I’m not sure when it will be out. I believe this is a trilogy.

The Golden Compass is going to be a movie too,  here’s a trailer for it on YouTube. It’s coming out December 7th.  Hmm, this trailer only seems to show pictures- no dialogue. I’m trying to find a better one…But anyway, it looks pretty darn good.

The latest in Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel seriesKushiel’s Justice is coming out in June.  I’ve heard these are really great, and they are on my list! (A friend told me, run don’t walk to the nearest bookstore). Oh, and just a note since I review a lot of young adult fantasy- these books are _definitely_ adult thematically…

On a sadder note- renowned fantasy novelist Lloyd Alexander passed away on May 17th. May he find his way safely to the Other Side. I _still_ haven’t gotten to his stuff…
