Out of the Blue

Rock, Paper, Shotgun notes that the entry on Old Man Murray was deleted from Wikipedia (thanks Ryan), which seems like a shame, and is a little inexplicable. They suggest this may have been part of someone's agenda, so perhaps this can still be remedied. I'm sympathetic, both as a huge OMM fan, and also because after surviving one nomination for deletion, this site's entry suffered "speedy deletion" the second time it was nominated. I never tried to add to the article myself, as that seemed tacky, so this is at least partly my fault, but it does seem odd that a site that offers "3,573,885 articles, and 23,384,576 pages in total" feels the need to remove articles in such a manner, it's not like it's an actual book that's getting too big to carry. Oh well.

I just finished Book 3 of the "Song of Fire and Ice" series last night. I have issues with the writing style here, but the second half of Book 3 was tremendous. I'm hooked again and ready to continue.

I feel there are too many characters presented, there is too much jumping around across viewpoints, and too much focus on descriptions of meaningless visual details. These books would be better if edited down from 900 pages in my opinion.

With that said, there are many that think this is the best fantasy series by the best writer in the genre, so if you aren't familiar with it you should consider checking it out.

Victory needs no explanation; defeat allows none.
