    The sci fi comes in a later book, a prequel. The dragons were genetically engineered from the native fire lizard, which can chew fire stone and flame Thread. But for the first 3 books? It’s fantasy.

    I just finished Yellow Wife by Sadeqa Johnson. It was a good fast read about slavery in the old American South, a novel but based on some true stories and events. Man's inhumanity to man can be mind-boggling.

    Sci-fi/fantasty was/is my favorite genre. I still have paperback copies of my favorites - Telzy series, Fuzzy Sapien series, Stephen R Donaldson's White Gold Welder series, Shannara series, Deryni series...

    As a kid, I tried the Tolkien books and did not like them and that surprised me because I liked all of the other English fantasy books. I would’ve loved Harry Potter as a kid. As an adult, I liked Harry Potter pretty much tho they were in desperate need of editing down.

    Okay----I am just sitting here(when I have more important things to do), reading the complete collected works of Poe. It helps that it is VERY overcast, outside. Yup.2023-01-26.jpg2023-01-22 (25).jpg2022-08-15 (8).jpg2022-07-22 (8).jpg

    Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kinsolver. Told from the vantage of a boy growing up in Appalachia and all the woes therein. Good read so far...

    I'm drawn to pure escapism lately--urban fantasy, wherein all looks perfectly normal--on the surface.
