For many people 2016 has been a stressful, busy and torturous year. Man changes have occurred leading fear and dread for the future there has been much sadness. I won’t speak to the politics or other events. That isn’t the focus of this blog.
The sadness stems from the loss of many artists of various areas such as music, books and movies. The year is ending with the death of Carrie Fisher the beloved Princess Leia from “Star Wars.” The fantasy genre has lost several authors this year with Richard Adams the author of Watership Down. Hopefully we’ll make it to 2017 without any further losses.
This year for the blog has been very scattered. Life events and work kept me away from keeping up with the blog on a regular basis. I hope to do a better job in the future. So here is the hope for the new year of 2017.
For new beginnings, you might want to try some new books in different sub genres of fantasy. Here are links to epic fantasy and urban fantasy books:

Until next year, may the gifts of fantasy and wonder be yours. Happy New Year!
