Top Ten Tuesday: Spring 2020 TBR

Hello from the Dear Geek… Bunker? Well, sort of. I haven’t been hoarding toilet paper, I promise. But as usual, I continue to hoard books, and though I dearly wish the circumstances were better it looks as though I may get even more time than usual now to work my way through them. But social distancing stops at the internet door, and so I’m here to share a bit of what I’ll hopefully be reading over the next couple of

Top Ten Tuesday: Here Be Dragons

It’s the final Tuesday of May, and that means it’s time for my most anticipated fantasy-themed top ten of the month. Today, I am all about dragons!

In today’s Wyrd and Wonder post, I’m talking about some of my favourite practitioners of that old arcane art, in all of its terrible glory. Behold…

About Me

Dear Geek Place is my new home on the internet, though I've been around here before - I am the blogger formerly known as @EffingRainbow. Here, you can still find reviews of science fiction and fantasy books, but hopefully more besides, as I throw myself cheerfully out into the world and attempt to chronicle my experiences, one adventure at a time.
