Dragons, Heroes and Wizards:
A few years ago I was searching the web for a new Fantasy series to read. You see at some point in my obsession with reading I had made a decision. I HATED going to the book store, studying the shelves, only to find that one of 3 scenarios was bound to happen. I'd find book 2 or 3 of a series, but, I could not remember if I had book 1 and/or 2, or, if I knew I didn't have them, the store didn't either, or, I had 1, I could buy 2, but it would be another year or more before I could get #3. So, instead I started looking for complete series. Book 1, 2 and 3 (or more) sitting neatly on the shelf. But I digress....
Fast forward to me searching the web for my next undiscovered already complete series. I soon realized that at that time, there was no such resource. Oh I found reviews of great books. Lots and lots of them. Only problem was I had to dig deep to find out if the review belonged to part of a complete set, or an incomplete set. I had to check for titles of books 1, 2 and 3 then see if and when and where they were available. Throwing my hands up in frustration I decided to create my own blog focused on.... you guessed it.... only complete series (or sub-series, some works in their entirety are huge but are broken down into separate trilogies.)
And so Dragons, Heroes and Wizards was born. The rest as they say, is history.
Old Bat's Belfry:
This is a companion blog to Dragons, Heroes and Wizards which is my fantasy series book review blog. I keep all my full series reviews over there and reserve this blog for Fantasy related asides and personal stuff.
Here you will find links to stuff I find out there in the SFF world, Memes I've been tagged with, Shoutouts about things I deem worthy of attention and maybe the odd book review that doesn't fit in my fantasy series niche. And of course the infamous author social media table.
Its also a place where I can goof around with all the fun widgets, gadgets and other assorted inane stuff I run across on the web.
Welcome to my world! (Try not to be afraid, it scares even me.)
There are lots of ways to contact me:
