Marc

Marc Aplin is probably not what you'd consider your 'conventional fantasy fan'. Having won British titles in Mixed Martial Arts, by both submission and knockout inside a cage, he was forced to retire in 2010 with a serious back injury. Since then he has picked up a pen and decided to try his hand at this writing and blogging malarkey. He still questions which is easier. You can follow Marc on Twitter: @fantasyfaction

So, I must apologise ON THEIR BEHALF that this week’s post, Chapters … More

Brandon Sanderson, Fantasy, Read Along

Welcome back to another edition of Gollancz & Fantasy-Faction‘s The Way of Kings read along. Last week we enjoyed meeting a whole cast of new characters out on the Shattered Plains and this week we got to spend a heck of a lot of time with them.
