What are you currently reading?
I am halfway through Orson Scott Card’s Hart’s Hope. I discovered the book while reading Card’s How to Write Science Fiction and Fantasy. While Card explained his worldbuilding techniques he also described how he came to design the world in Hart’s Hope. How a simple mishap on his mao created the world and its characters. Set during a time of wizards, Kingdoms and the introduction of Monotheistic religion (Christianity) the book seems to be about a town who’s monarch is thwarted replaced and exiled continuously through means of divine intervention and sorcery. So far the story is shaping up to be an interesting one though almost halfway through I’m not sure who I’m rooting for.
What did you recently finish reading?
I finished reading “How to Write Science Fiction and Fantasy by Orson Scott Card. This book is the reason I started reading Hart’s Hope. Prior to buying this book I was oblivious to who OSC was but I’m better off for having read it and was able to complete the outline for my very own novel.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I am as always lately unsure of what the next book will be. On the one hand starting a new stand-alone novel is always fun. A completed story that doesn’t warrant a new bookshelf though I did purchase quite a few series last year that I’ve been looking over. We shall see.
