Taming Your Gremlin by Richard David Carson
Taming Your Gremlin

gilmorecairns, November 11, 2008

While I may not agree with all of his conclusions about gremlins, Carson provides great tools and perspectives for working with the ones we've got. The tone can be a bit precious, but there is a lot of good packed in this thin volume.

Goblin Quest by Jim C. Hines
Goblin Quest

gilmorecairns, March 7, 2008

It annoys me that I enjoyed this book. I don't usually read or like comic fantasy, but this is good. The book is intelligent, well plotted, and draws you in. It also pokes fun at the whole genre, cracks apart stereotypes and contains enough inside jokes that my gamer brother-in-law got even more out of it than I did.
