epic author fandom blog crawl

It’s my turn in the Epic Author Fandom Blog Crawl, which is the brainchild of the marvellous Kassa. Yesterday, Chris sang the praises of Charles de Lint and tomorrow Erotic Horizon, who was also responsible for our lovely bloggy button, is up with her fan letter.

I know you’ve all been waiting on tenterhooks to see who I would choose. Yes, I found out about the whispers as to what author could possibly match Kris’ own awesomeness. I even heard about the bets being made on certain m/m authors.

I am sorry to say your guesses all sucked – that seems to be a major problem for some of you – because there is only one author who reigns supreme in the eyes of Kris and this is the God of all Book Gods, the absofuckinglutely amazing…

*hand to heart and moment of silent awe*

Dear Sir Terry

I love you and I want to have your babies.

Yours sincerely,


PS – My biological clock is pretty much flat-lining so if you could let me know what you think asap that would be appreciated.

PSS – I’ve been told by a certain person whose name begins with ‘K’ that my letter may need a wee bit of editting. I said she should have let us know there was a word count minimum before we agreed to do this. Plus, this sums up my feelings exactly AND you’re a Sir. Why the need to pontificate??

PPS – K$#@a is big meanhead. 😦

PPSS – Sir T, so *glaring in the direction of North America* I have to tell you why I love you so much. Although I would have thought that my willingness to go through morning sickness, the possibility of gestational diabetes, labour, sore nipples and smelly nappies made it pretty friggin’ obvious how I felt, but apparently not. *See. A meanie.*

Addendum – 10 5 Reasons Why I Want To Have Sir T’s Babies Love Sir T

1. Sir T, you are the only author I religiously buy in hard cover. *What?! It’s a fucking honour! Do you have any idea how expensive they are in Australia?! Alright, alright.* *muttereveryone’sabloodycriticmutter*

2. Sir T, you are a master of parody. Over the years you have not only turned your attention to the tropes of the fantasy genre, but to such topical issues as bigotry, anthropology, politics, bank crises, war and sports culture. Your satirical genius never ceases to amaze, delight and provoke thought.

3. Sir T, your skills at word smithing and story telling are matched by your humour. Your sly, clever and wicked wit always has me gigglesnorting and laughing out loud throughout your books. You entertain at the same time you stimulate. A difficult balance that you manage to achieve brilliantly and seemingly effortlessly.

4. Sir T, you create the most interesting and unique characters who are also extremely engaging. Never in my life would I have believed that I could have crushes on a grumpy, snarky copper, an omniscient, manipulative dictator, and, most of all, the complicated and compelling DEATH. Yet, I adore them. Of course, the way my mind works and all that…


5. Finally, Sir T, I deeply admire you for the courage with which you have faced your diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer’s. My heart broke a little when I heard about your illness and then I was completely in awe at the dignity to which you approached it.

While there is no doubt I shall miss the possibility of new releases from you, I know I will get so much enjoyment out of rereading those already published. As I already have done. Time and time again.

That, Sir T, is one of the greatest gifts any author can give a reader and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me these truly wonderful experiences.

About Kris

Reads, rants, randoms & R+s. You've been warned. BTW, don't follow me if you're a GLBTQQphobic wanker. It won't end well. For you.

    Kaetrin: I think your hubby is right. I also think that Aker went off on his rant for a particular reason. Reading between the lines and given the Club's fury and his subsequent punishment, I'd say that the Western Bulldogs have a couple of gay players, who are open to their team mates and the management. This makes him even more of a wanker to my mind.

    “I would have liked it to be longer though! (but then I almost always say that when I enjoy a book!).”

    Me too. LOL. I'm glad that you liked BCoLY. Next rec? 🙂 What kind of m/m are you in the mood for now?

    Great letter, Kris. I love Sir T's books too and have a great fondness for Death myself. I always scan through a TP book before I read to see if I can spot any dialogue in capital letters cos then I know I'm in for a bit of a treat.

    Good luck with the baby thing :).

  3. Kris says:

    Cheers, Jen.

    “Good luck with the baby thing :).”

    It's beginning to look like it might be an immaculate conception. 😦

  4. Kaetrin says:

    @ Kris. Hubby said if someone like Jonathon Brown came out (not saying he's actually gay, just a frex) then no-one would diss him – he's too freaking big!! I reckon it would take 1 or 2 really high profile players to come out and then it would be easier for the rest. The higher the profile, the less likely I'd reckon on them getting too much shit about it – they've already proven they're awesome. It just needs to be no big deal – after all, it isn't really.

    As to what next for my m/m reading delectation, well I don't know – I want to read about a romance – I don't mind if it's hawt, or even mind bending but I'm not in it just for the sexxoring. I really enjoyed T&D and that was positively PG. I've read the Heidi Cullinan books Special Delivery and Double Blind, I've read the James Buchanan All or Nothing series, I've read Collision Course and No Souvenirs by KA Mitchell. Enjoyed all of them, particularly the last. I read Anah Crow's Uneven but I didn't like the violence so much – pain and blood and punches didn't seem romantic or sexy to me. I really liked The Object of My Obsession by Cara North and The Satin Sash by Red Garnier which are m/f/m stories where there's m/m action as well as f/m action. I can't remember the others I've read but they're the ones I've liked so far – plus BCoLY. Thoughts?

    Wow that was amazing. I've been moved to put some of the blog crawl authors on my tbb list but you make me want to head out to the store and buy all of TP's books.

    Very nicely done my friend.

  6. Kris says:

    Kaetrin: Have you read any J L Langley or Josh Lanyon? Both great authors and extremely popular.

    If you're looking for another Aussie read, I'd highly recommend Isabelle Rowan's A Note in the Margin. It's bloody terrific and something a bit different. Very emotional and challenging.

  7. Kris says:

    Tracy: Did you see my comment to Stacy about me being pretty sure that you got to hell if you don't read at least one of Sir T's books in your lifetime?? I've confirmed that it's true as well as the fact that you need to own a least two of his books. You'd better go shopping straight away.

  8. Tracy says:

    Oh honey it ain't not having TP's books that's got me heading to hell, I can tell ya that much! lol But I'll still get a couple – just so I can look good for the devil when I get there. 🙂

  9. Kris says:

    Tracy: *gasp* It's not the Devil, it's DEATH. Two totally separate beings. DEATH is way more cooler: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_(Discworld)
