Book of the Week: Tigana.

Tigana was written by Guy Gavriel Kay, and I’m not going to beat around the bush, here: Kay is one of my favorite authors, and Tigana is one of the best damn books he’s ever written.  It’s low-to-mid-level fantasy based around the late medieval/early Renaissance Italian city-state period, and manages to be extremely evocative of the time period without exploiting it.  Check it out.

Yup, short reign for The Collected Works of Edgar Rice Burroughs.  Trying to keep these a little fresher.

    I really liked Kay’s first trilogy. It was truly a great story. Tiagana was entertaining, but after that his writing became very dry. He took the “serious writer” route and thought that serious was synonymous for boring.
