Love is...

... something that won't be featuring heavily in my reading for some time to come! :o) Yes, it's time to bid a fond farewell to the 'Week of Love' and get back to the sci-fi/fantasy/horror that got me blogging in the first place (can you hear me breathe a sigh of relief?)
I've learned a few things about 'para-normal romance', and romance in urban fantasy/sci-fi, this week. I gave it a go but it's just not for me. Am I just a prude or do I think that certain authors could write a better story without resorting to graphic detail of you know what? A little bit of A and a little bit B I have to admit. I also learnt that...

A were-leopard never changes its spots.

The motel industry in America is built on the antics of amorous were-creatures that just cannot wait to get home.

Being under a witch's spell is a perfectly good reason for not calling your girlfriend.

Leprachauns smoke pot.

The term 'para-normal romance' is very misleading as far as I'm concerned!

And there you have it. Tomorrow should see a review of a tasty slice of horror fiction that I'm reading and I'll hopefully be setting up a couple of competitions as well. Before I go, I just want to say thanks to everyone who linked to the 'Blood Noir' review. It was really interesting to see some of the comments that came up (it's not just me who thinks this stuff). Cheers!
Hope the rest of your weekend is great!

You'll be disappointed with GRRMs next, then. He co-wrote some chapters with Laurell K Hamilton, and is featuring many of her's and Anne Rice's characters. The Sansa scenes, in particular, I believe...

God, wouldn't that be awful?! I've never read Rice or Hamilton, so I can't pass judgement, but anybody working with GRRM would be bad! ;)
