Top 10 Reads of 2012

 

There are a couple handfuls of good books I read in 2012 that deserve to be recognized, but here are my top ten. Judging the top three hurts my heart, because you could put them in any order and I’d be fine. It may be that their order is there based on order of being read. Hugh’s book was the first to really amaze me. He and T.C. and James, (the other authors in the top three,) have earned my loud speaker for everything they write. I have reviews for all of these books except James’s, because that will be up at SF Signal shortly. I hope to get these authors and more on my AudioTim podcast in 2013. Continue reading

Video Interview: Magic Systems with Moses Siregar III, author of The Black God’s War

Moses Siregar III, author of The Black God’s War, shares his thoughts on what it was like to pen the story of a war where the reader sympathizes with both sides.

Book Review: The Black God’s War by Moses Siregar III

The Black God's War (Splendor and Ruin, #1)The Black God’s War by Moses Siregar III
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was continually amazed at how such a high quality book could be an author’s debut. The specific description he uses to paint the scenery, fill us in on characters’ inner experiences, illustrate one of the most fascinating magic/religious systems I’ve read or seen, and blow my mind with complex characters (including snippets inside the point of view of various gods) made this read an absolute pleasure. Add to that a plot that was so intense I was astonished at how much happened by the 50% mark, and then only got better, throwing twists left and right as if Moses were some kind of magician samurai.

AudioTim 34: Adventures in SciFi Publishing Interview

I turn the mics around on this episode and interview the podcast staff of Adventures in SciFi Publishing. We talk with Shaun about his history podcasting, including the ups and downs, and how building the 2.0 version with Moses Siregar III and Brent Bowen has rejuvenated my favorite author-interview podcast. Halfway through, I ask each of them how their writing is doing, something we don’t often get to hear during the course of their normal podcasting format. This show was good fun with great guys, and it was an honor to get to share the airwaves with one of the major influences to my own podcasting and writing career. Continue reading
