It’s been a while since I posted up a blog full of random interesting links.
Here’s a few having to do with my books:
- World Cup Widow? 8 Fiction Reads to Help You Escape Reality
It’s odd to me, showing up on the same list as Aldus Huxley, Angela Carter, and Margaret Atwood.
Again, very flattering company. And I like the quote they used. I remember writing that one and being proud of it.
- Six Reasons why the Kingkiller Chronicle is the next Game of Thrones.
Over the years, I’ve been described as the next Tolkien, the next Scott Lynch, the next George Martin…. And while it’s flattering, I’d really rather be the first Pat Rothfuss. I have much more experience being that.
Now that I post up these three links, I realize they’re all lists of some sort. Which makes me feel kinda awful. My only saving grace is that I didn’t find these by clicking through horrible clickbait websites. (You’ll never believe what these authors did! Number 5 will surprise you!)
Speaking of, have you seen The Onion’s new parody site? Clickhole?
(Click to Embiggen. Seriously.)
It’s lovely as only The Onion can be.

In other news, here’s an article on Facebook being a whole new kind of dick.
And a blog where Vi Hart is being a whole new kind of cool.
Lastly, many of you remember Tabletop episode where I played Lords of Waterdeep with Wil Wheaton, Brandon Laatsch, and Felicia Day.
(Don’t know what I’m talking about? You can see the original, delicious half-hour episode over here.)
I laughed my ass off at the original episode, but the game was edited down considerably to get it to be 35 minutes long.
If you were ever curious to see how the whole thing played out in detail. If you ever wanted more owlbear jokes. If you ever wanted to watch my terrifying strategy unfold like a delicate flower made entirely of razor wire and the screams of angels….
Well, now you can. Because they released the extended version of the episode. More than two hours of solid gaming goodness.
P.S. Have I mentioned something kinda awesome is happening on July 7th?
It is. It very is.
Stay tuned for details.
