Things worth reading

A few books I've enjoyed. Maybe you will, too. All scifi or fantasy. Maybe less well known.

-Bridge of Birds, by Barry Hughart. Fantasy with an asian twist. Sweet and funny.
-Fanuilh by Daniel Hood. A mystery set in a fantasy middle-age universe.
-The Golden Age, by John C. Wright. Some of the most enjoyable sci-fi I've read in a long time.
-The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss. The first in an ongoing fantasy trilogy about a very epic mage. One of the few authors who has managed to make a kick-ass character truly enjoyable.

Ponyfiction worth reading:
-The Powers of Harmony, by CyborgSamurai. On Hiatus. An epic, epic story. Why I joined this site.
-Cultural Artifacts by Dan_s Comments. A very unique HIE, probably the best I've read, but can be confusing.

Legend of Zelda fanfiction worth reading. All on FF.
-The Golden Power, by DBAinsw. On hiatus. This was the fanfic that convinced me they weren't all horseapples. Takes LOZ and turns the epic up to eleven.
-Insomnia by tikitikirevenge. An excellent novelization of Majora's Mask. Updates slowly.
-The Legend of Zelda: Exoria. Also on hiatus, an excellent sci-fi zelda fic.

And although I'm not the biggest fan, one Harry Potter fic.
-Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, by Eliezer Yudkowski is very original and excellent, if a bit labyrinthine. If you don't mind a bit of Author Tract and can think for yourself, it's worth reading. Insane!Dumbldore is hilarious.

Also check out Durandal's fanfiction at soulriders dot net/brian. Kyon BDH is great, and Motivation is also great. Unfortunately, the author committed suicide at the beginning of the year; these will never be finished.

Webcomics I follow:
-ErfWorld, at erfworld dawt com, about a guy who ends up in a turn based game. Better than that sounds.
-Girl Genius, at girlgeniusonline dawt com, a steampunk adventure.
-XKCD. at xkcd dawt com, will make you laugh. Sometimes very sciency, but I like that.
-gunnerkrigg court, at gunnerkrigg dawt com, a fantasy school story.

Hope this list brings someone a bit of enjoyment.

It could happen! I mean, I have no plans to do it, but I'm not going to say something like never, because hey. You never know, right?

Thanks! I'm glad you've enjoyed my work so much. Hearing that always brightens my day. :)

One day, maybe a day far away it would be nice to see a slice of life sequel to Gladiator. I still go back and read through it every once in a while. Really a great read.

You probably get this all the time, but... is that a boa constrictor digesting an elephant?

2319552 Yeah, going to bed earlier helps. It's kinda of an interdependence with changing a sleep cycle. If you sleep too late, it's harder to fall asleep early; if you stay up late, it's harder to wake up early. But I am one of those people who can go back to sleep a million times.

I'll add that article to my list. I was going to say I'll read it later, but somehow that felt wrong with an article about procrastination.
