Welcome to my blog!

(Originally posted on Friday, 27 March 2009)

Originally this blog was dedicated purely to Glen Cook novels, but over time it expanded over different topics. You can find out more about the start of this blog under the label “01 – Welcome to my blog!”.

Some labels contain many posts with Youtube videos and this is the reason why they load so slowly.

I updated some posts – among other things I corrected some inaccuracies or made my opinions more clear.

Anyone is free to comment, but please do it without spoilers – without ANY summaries of a plot. Moreover I must warn you that I am going to delete most of the comments from time to time.

My favourite quotes

(Originally posted in May 2013)

    Any man who barely sustains an armistice with himself has no business poking around in an alien soul.

(Glen Cook - The Black Company, 1984)

    Life has a habit of not being fair. (...) A man who goes through life complaining about fairness will make nothing of himself.

(David Gemmell - Knights of Dark Renown, 1989)

My letter was burnt but your words were wise
For mystery and youth must surely collide

(Manic Street Preachers - I Think I Found It - from their 10th studio album Postcards From A Young Man, 2010)

    The administration is growing to handle the challenges of the growing administration.

(I don’t know who should be credited for this quote, but I had to post it anyway.)
