There's a pretty hilarious string of reblogs that have been going around the QT tags on Tumblr the past few days.

I am a totally innocent bystander in all of this, by the way.

Remember that KoA Paragraph?

Remember that mysterious line from KoA that we investigated HERE and HERE?

“I hope you know that I could once jump from the palace to those roofs over there.” He eyed the empty space below him and said sadly, “If I tried now, I’d probably eviscerate myself when I landed. But it does give me an idea for what to do with you.” - The King of Attolia p335 (2017 paperback edition)

Chat this Sunday? And a couple of questions.

Happy New Year, Sounis! I hope your first week of the new year has gone well, and you've already gotten the chance to recommend our favorite series to some new people.

There is a holiday weekend coming up for us Americans, so I thought it would be the perfect weekend for our first chat of the year! Live community chats are held in the Conspiracy Room and the password is HERE. Only members of the community can access the chat room. Sometimes, we have a guest of honor who stops by to say hi, and by that, I do mean MWT herself.

BTW, I've noticed that Chatzy doesn't get a lot of traffic in between chats these days, so I wanted to make sure all you lovely reprobates know that you don't have to be shy about using the chat room. Leave random messages, post links to articles, recommend books or fanfiction--I once spent a week discussing Romeo and Juliet if read as a parody with Leslie and TLE. Don't be nervous about using Chatzy to connect with your fellow QT peps about off topic subjects. If you ever lose the password, you can always message me or checkers65477 for the link.

Same bat time? Same bat channel?

Sunday, January 14th

Please, check the World Clock for more time zones.

Now on to the questions...

A question of Wimsey

Jan. 6th, 2018 | 06:45 pm
posted by: freenarnian in sounis

Happy near year, Sounisians!

I was recommending Dorothy Sayers (as one does), this time to an_english_girl, when she posed a very reasonable but perplexing question: In what order should one read the Lord Peter Wimsey books?

Now, I recall asking this very question, and I was told to begin with the short stories. In hindsight, I think I would have understood and enjoyed those more had I read the novels first. The novels can be read sequentially, of course, but the difference in quality and tone varies significantly, with many people favoring her later books. (I suppose it depends on how one feels about the addition of Harriet Vane to the cast of characters.) So where should one begin, if one wants to dip one's toe into the waters to get a feel for the series overall?

I know there are Sayers fans hereabouts, and so I put the question to Sounis. Anyone have suggestions?

Happy almost Friday!

I've been working on a book order for my library and came across some intriguing-sounding new books. Has anyone read any of these, or heard hype about them?

The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline
More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer (companion book to Letters to the Lost)
When Light Left Us by Leah Thomas

If not those titles, has anyone read anything great lately?

Quote from Howl's Moving Castle

I picked up my Kindle last night to re-read The Thief and it opened at the end (from the last time I read it on the kindle) where Megan was explaining about some of her influences. She said that she used a direct quote from Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. I'm sure I read this before but this time it intrigued me enough to re-read HMC and I found the quote! I even know exactly where in The Thief it was used. Did any of you catch it as well?
