So... you know how one of the big concerns that many fannish folks had with the SOPA/PIPA business was that the scope of the laws would have included fan sites, icon makers, and basically anyone who posted any sort of picture from any sort of copyrighted work without the consent of the copyright holders? Yeah. The ones who want fans of their material coming to THEM and THEIR sites with THEIR ads when said fans want additional content relating to our favorite brand of crack series/movie?  They have every reason to be afraid of their fans as competition, because I just got a lesson in why I should be very glad that official channels aren't the only way I can get fandom graphics.

Here's what happened:

This got ranty. )

Conclusion: *hugs fandom graphics makers* Never stop, you beautiful, talented people.  I don't have enough hours in the day to go through official channels for inferior work.

1. The Golden Key by Melanie Rawn, Jennifer Roberson, and Kate Elliot

 

I read this book for the first time when it first came out in paperback some time in 1997.  Since then, it has been on every "favorite fantasy novels" list I have ever made.  Heck, it's probably been on every single "favorite books of any genre" list I've been asked for since reading it. I love this book.  I got my hands on the prequel, The Diviner, a few months ago, and I decided it was time to read the book that started my obsession with this universe again before forging ahead (or backwards?) into the prequel.  I started reading with trepidation.  What if it wasn't as good as I remembered it being? What if I winced and thought to myself, "THAT's what I've been recommending to people all these years? What was I thinking?"

 

I didn't need to be worried.  It's as good as I remember it being.
