AWESOME STORY TELLING
PAIN AND SUFFERING
SUSPENSE AND ADVENTURE
A REMARKABLE AMOUNT OF THE USE OF THE WORD ‘FART’
IT’S LIKE WHITE COLLAR BUT WITHOUT THE FBI-LEASH. BUT ON A FOREIGN PLANET. THAT HAS THREE MOONS. AND WAS ONCE INHABITED BY OTHER CREATURES THAT MADE STUFF OUT OF SOME SORT OF GLASS THAT CANNOT BE MANIPULATED BY HUMANS.
THIEVES AND GANGS
AN ITALIAN LIKE ATMOSPHERE BUT ALSO SORT OF LATE 18TH CENTURY VIBES
ALCHEMY AND MAGIC
LOCKE LAMORA IS AN ARROGANT SHITHEAD BUT YOU LOVE HIM ANYWAY.
JEAN MOTHERFUCKING TANNEN
STRONG ASS WOMEN WHO ARE UNBREAKABLE
SORCERERS WHO ARE SHITBUCKETS AND PLAY CAT’S CRADLE
SERIOSULY JUST FUCKING READ IT
Edit: So I made this post back while reading RSURS and saved a draft and decided, mmm yeah I’m gonna post it
I’ve started reading Scott Lynch’s Gentleman Bastard series and I’m starting to think that Camorr is like the Florida of the City-States - except that any reports that may circulate with regards to “Camorr Man” are more often than not just the Misadventures of Locke Lamora in a Variety of Silly Hats.
“Camorr Man Spends Entire Morning Being Strangled in Hopes of Attracting Lucrative Business Opportunity”
“Camorr Man Calls Literal Wizard an Asshole - Kills His Pet Bird”
“Climbing Down 100-Foot Trellis After Taking an Emetic Honestly Camorr Man’s Best Option Given the Circumstances”
“Camorr Man Lucky He Wasn’t Devoured by Giant Spiders After Nearly Drowning in Barrel of Horse Piss”
“Camorr Man Fakes Assassination Attempt in Order to Steal Man’s Pants”
“Camorr Man Punches Old Lady in the Face - Jumps out Fiftieth Story Window - Claims it was ‘Really Big Bird’“
Oh, right, folks! This is official now, so it’s my great pleasure to let you know I’m going to be giving a presentation at WorldCon in Helsinki next month! Of course it’s about Gentlemen Bastards. What did you expect.
