My fantasy book's not going to get anywhere until I have a cool idea that moves me; I don't think Coren, at least in his current form, is up to the task. So while I'm sitting up here at the receptionist desk, I'm going to start reading more contemporary fantasy novels. I've spent so much of my time reading stuff from the 1930's that I have very little idea what current fantasy is actually like.
I've picked up a copy of George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones and I'm starting that today. So far, it's had a lot of cold and some sort of ice-wights or something, but I've only read the prologue.
