Just as I view this board as the de facto music board for our community, I see it also as the book board.

Do you read prose fiction? What genres do you favor?

My own favorite is sword and sorcery. I came to it through comic books - specifically Conan - but over the years I've enjoyed many authors and many characters. I don't know if you're aware, but there's a sword and sorcery magazine currently publishing, called Tales from the Magician's Skull. Here's a link:

It funds its new issues through Kickstarter.

As a boy, I was an avid sci-fi reader. Lately I've less interest in reading that genre. I satisfy my sci-fi appetite through television and movies. Back when I was a boy, this wasn't as easy to do. We didn't have an endless variety of sci-fi shows and films available on streaming services like we do today.

Do you read less of any genre because nowadays it's readily available on the screen?


I recently bought Nick Cave's "And the ass saw the angel" but I have not yet read it.

Before that, I read:
- The Long Earth series by Stephen Baxter and Terry Pratchett,
- Anno Dracula series by Kim Newman.
