Tracy Hickman has Mad Skillz!

I have been familiar with Tracy Hickman’s work long before he was a develope for Shroud of the Avatar or Underworld Ascendant. I just ran into his novels by accident as I am an avid reader in the same genres he writes in. So as I grew older it was cool to find out that my independent choices in authors and game developers is so universally accepted as a leader in their art.

A book review of “Doom of the Dragon” by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman’s talks a bit about their world building skills.

“Doom of the Dragon,” the fourth and final book of the Dragonships of Vindras series, [pullquote]is an excellent example of Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman’s world-building skills.[/pullquote] “Doom of the Dragon” follows the continuing exploits of Skylan Ivorson, Chief of Chiefs for the Vandrasi people. The Vandrasi are patterned after actual Viking archetypes, which makes this series more realistic.

You can pick up the book here on Amazon


Oops! You just fell into a pit trap segway in The Caverns! Book Recommendation for you Kindle Unlimited Readers. Or those that just want to buy a new book besides the above, either way I suppose.

So I finished up the series I was reading the other night and had to the dreaded thing that happens all to often. Scrolling through the book browser on my Kindle app trying to decide what to read next. I really was getting tired of reading Sci-fi Trading, Mining, and Pirate chasing. I haven’t been much in the mood for fantasy of late. Decided I needed something Urban but damn, I DON’T want all the romance and Sex.

So after a lot of searching I found the perfect fix and am LOVING it. A Comic Vampire Horror series called “The Tome of Bill”. I am a bit into the second book which so far is superior to the first, which was great on it’s own.

No BS nonsense in this series. Just good story, good writing, good characters, and a lot of chuckles in between a fun story and plot line. A+ Recommendation as something a bit different from all the stuff coming out anymore to freshen up the interest in picking up a novel from Stile Teckel for this one!
