Book of the Week
New feature, in addition to videos and song, why not share a book. I am a writer, even if I’m just an obscure S-list one.
This week’s book is a collection I completed earlier this month as part of my Bradbury Challenge reading. The Eye of Sonnu collects swords and sorcery tales by Schuyler Hernstrom. The title is a reference to the first story, which appeared in the first issue of Cirsova. Many of the others appeared in the magazine as well. While I enjoyed some stories more than others, “Images of the Goddess” is my favorite, I cannot say I disliked any of them.
Song of the Week
The second single from Unleash the Archers’s new album Abyss is out. Give a listen to “Soulbound”
