Red Magician Sale, and Other Stuff

As promised, here's a reminder that The Red Magician is available today for $1.99.  This is one of my favorite of my books, the book that, much to my flabbergastitude, won the American Book Award for Best Paperback.

Doug pointed out that I somehow managed not to include the link to the original article, "13 Books like Harry Potter for Adult Readers," last time.  Hope I can get it right this time.

And congrats to everyone who won Hugo Awards!  I liked The Fifth Season, but there's no getting away from the fact that it's very grim in places.  People have compared it to Toni Morrison's Beloved because of a similar plot point, and to my mind there's another similarity to Morrison's works as well: the idea that life is very hard, very harsh, and that you have to come to terms with this harshness or go mad.  If this doesn't bother you, and if you like very deep, very dense world-building, I'd recommend the book highly.  I'm reading the sequel, The Obsidian Gate, now, and it seems to have lightened up just a bit, or at any rate there's a slight possibility that the world won't end after all.  Anyway, The Fifth Season certainly deserved its win.
