Gibson for a special SFF Addicts one-year anniversary extravaganza (streamed live on YouTube), where he reminisces on the past year of podcasting, chats with friends and catches up with past guest authors like Kevin Hearne, Delilah S. Dawson, Anthony Ryan, K.S. Villoso, Andrea Stewart, Dyrk Ashton, Michael R. Fletcher, Krystle Matar, Ryan Cahill, Matt Kressel and more. Plus, three LIVE READINGS, from authors Connor M.

As far as I’m concerned Anthony wrote what I would class as a perfect fantasy book and its an easy 10/10 for me.

Reflecting on my favorite books of the year is one of my favorite December activities. Here are my top 10 reads in 2021.
The Pariah is the opening act in The Covenant of Steel series and what an opening it is! We follow Alwyn Scribe in first person, as he shares with the reader his tale through the benefit of hindsight. I’ve grown really fond of this type of narrator over the years because, especially if the attitude is right, it makes for some really fun reading, rife with asides and commentary that add a certain dimension to the story that, be it because of ominous foreshadowing or amusing snark, sass, or dry humor, regularly gives you a solid chuckle. The Pariah had all of that and more.
The Pariah by Anthony Ryan is the first novel in The Covenant of Steel, an all new epic fantasy trilogy introducing a perilous, yet compelling journey through the eyes of an outlaw.
Join host Adrian M. Gibson and FanFiAddict’s David Walters as they dive into music in SFF with authors Sebastien de Castell, Anthony Ryan and Juliet Marillier. During the panel they discuss their personal histories with music, the rhythm of writing, how music plays into combat and action scenes, the musical aspects of worldbuilding and much more.
The Pariah is the first in Anthony Ryan’s new epic – in every darn sense of the word – start to the Covenant of Steel series.
Hello everyone and welcome to this month’s attempt at hawking a pile a books at you! You may be wondering why there are so many on this month’s list. First, thank you for noticing. Reading comprehension, ace. Second, there’s just so many great books releasing this month! Truly, it’s unbelievable how many there are and I’ll have you know that I had to leave a TON of great books off the list in order to pare it down to a (somewhat) reasonable level. This list is all killer, no filler. Take a look.
