I recently discovered something amazing and unexpected. It turns out that Amazon will be creating a new television series that will be based on The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. It will not be three separate films like the Peter Jackson trilogy. Instead, it will be an ever expanding series with a currently unknown number of seasons. I don’t know how they can top the Peter Jackson trilogy because it set the bar so high. On the other hand, Tolkein’s original work included many beautiful things that were not in the films. Hopefully, we will see more of those beautiful things in this new series. I have my fingers and toes crossed as I await the first trailer.
This week, The Grand Tour had a new episode in which Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond went on one of their epic road trips. In this episode, they went to Nevada in RVs they had customized to fit their needs. I have watched the boys since they were on Top Gear and I was always a fan of two of their antics: road trips and customizing cars. As usual, everything went wrong with their modifications. With Jeremy’s RV, the engine was so overheated that it superheated the ignition key. He even made the director shut the engine off to keep his fingers from burning, burning the director’s fingers instead. Once the engine was off, the exhaust sputtered with flame and almost lit the cameraman on fire. Immediately afterwards, the engine gushed fluids. Later in the episode, the suspension on the left side of the RV collapsed and the brakes failed. I have seen the Top Gear boys make some outrageous vehicles over the years, but this RV was easily one of the biggest pieces of crud I have ever seen and it was super funny.
Great news! For the next five days, The War of the Gilded Beasts will be FREE on Kindle! Enjoy!
I am in the middle of reading a fantasy trilogy called The Pearl of Wisdom Saga. Like Game of Thrones, it portrays the story of a realm that is divided by infighting for the throne. Like The Lord of the Rings, it is about a quest that could save the world from a great evil. I have read the first few chapters and I am liking it so far. I have experienced shapeshifters, sea monsters, rescues, and attempted assassinations. All of that was in the first few chapters! The writer of this trilogy clearly knows how to start his stories with a bang! I will continue to read it and let you know when I finish it.
With the Holidays around the corner, I will be starting a FREE Kindle giveaway at midnight tonight. The book I will be giving out will be my Kaiju novella, Karmathaur. The giveaway will last for five days. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
