As many of you are most certainly aware, there’s this fancy book thing about Arthas coming out in the near future. Krizzly wrote a rather surreal poem about it.
Big Bear has already posted his review and run through his contest. So I’m going to be fashionably late and do pretty much the same thing, only starting now instead of… well, earlier. That’s what “late” means. The fashion part comes from this ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS scarf I’m wearing.
Natch, I’ll be posting a review, too, but I kinda sorta need to read the book first.
I haven’t gotten it yet, but I have to say, I’m actually kinda excited. I haven’t been this excited to read a book since Timothy Zahn finally finished his Conqueror’s trilogy (now only $6.99 on Amazon!)
Book? You haven’t heard? Allow me to enlighten you.
Christie Golden likes to write nerd fiction. Well, maybe she does. I’ve never actually asked her. I mean, maybe she likes writing toaster manuals, but she sure likes to write about Star Trek and Warcraft.
She uses words like “spiffy”; I can only assume a toaster manual writer would never use words as exciting as “spiffy”.
Wouldn’t it be totally awesome though, if you were reading the manual to, say, a dish washer, and it said something like “plug in your absolutely spiffy new dish washer”?
I seriously need to lay off the Java Nuts.
Back to geek books.
I mean, she’s already written two books set in the Warcraft universe (Rise of the Horde and Lord of the Clans, now available at a bookstore near you! Probably!), and is also helming a trilogy of Starcraft books. Oh yeah, she writes Star Wars, too. (more…)
