    If anyone is interested in superb Fantasy, I would recommend the Malazan Book of the Fallen by Erikson. Not suitable for the beginner (fantasy) reader, though.

    I actually remain unconvinced by that trailer. We will have to wait and see. But it's great to have more SciFi TV to look forward to. A new Dune is also upcoming, I believe?

    I tried watching Defiance as well, but after a few episodes just gave up.

    Btw, just started watching the new season of The Expanse. Such a great series. Read the books, and it is not often that the TV adaption is perhaps even better than the source book(s).
