Neil Gaiman's American Gods picked up by Starz for TV series adaptation | Stories | Scoop.it
Cable network to develop adaptation of novel, with Bryan Fuller and Michael Green as showrunners, after HBO abandons project
Cheah Foo Kian's insight:

This is one of the most wonderful news that fans of Gaiman can ever hear. American Gods is a series of books detailing Gods of different culture in America as they follow a recently released prisoner on a journey with Odin, the father of Norse gods. To hear that such a fantastic series that will be adapted for TV is excellent news for both TV fans and lovers of books. This promises to be an excellent show, if it ever goes through.

The Sandman

It’s a New York Times Bestseller and considered the most praised comic series in the history of the medium. Amongst its legions of fans are names like Stephen King, Norman Mailer, Tori Amos, and Claire Danes. But perhaps even more significantly, it introduced mega-author Neil Gaiman to the world…
Cheah Foo Kian's insight:

The Sandman is the series that catapult Gaiman to fame. It is the work that we associate Gaiman with. And one of the greatest comic that has ever been created. The story follows Morpheus, the Lord of dreams, AKA Sandman as he travels through a magical world filled with stories both horrific and beautiful. One of the most engaging and beautifully written and illustrated graphic novels to have ever been made.

The Black Library - Gaunt's Ghosts

Cheah Foo Kian's insight:

Written by Dan Abnett and set in the Grim Dark World of the 40th Millennium, Gaunt's Ghost details the story of Tanith's First and Only, a regiment of the Imperial guard. If you enjoy a series where anyone and everyone can die, much like game of thrones, you'll probably enjoy this also. Much of the old cast has already been killed off and only the titular character Commissar Gaunt seems to be still alive. Even then his survival is in doubt as of the latest book.

Cheah Foo Kian's insight:

Kara no Kyoukai,  the Garden of Sinners is a 7 part animated film. I personally feel that movies are one of the most beautifully animated movies ever made. The story itself is fairly engaging. It is based on one of the earlier works written by Nasu Kinoko, one of the founders of Type-Moon. As a supernatural murder thriller, the action scenes promise to keep you on the edge of your seats.

Cheah Foo Kian's insight:

One of the greatest fiction book ever created from 2 of the best writers of this century. You can see both Gaiman's influence on the story with its' alternative take on the mythological figures and together with the trademark Prachett style of humor and footnotes sprinkled around, you get one of the best books ever written.

Book:The Colour of Magic - Discworld & Terry Pratchett Wiki | Stories | Scoop.it
Cheah Foo Kian's insight:

The Colour of Magic is the first book in the series of Discworld novels that Pratchett has written. It is a wonderful satire on both the fantasy and real life. The gist of the story is about Rincewind, a WIZZARD in his own words, escorting a tourist. Well written and filled with humor and action. This book will not dissapoint.

Jim Butcher | The Online Site For Everything Jim | Stories | Scoop.it
Cheah Foo Kian's insight:

Jim Butcher is one of the most interesting authors that i have ever read. As a fiction writer, most of his works interest me. Dresden Files, his first series tells the tale of a wizard detective in modern day Chicago. Codex Alera regales us a tale of high fantasy about a boy on his path to greatness. And his newest work, Cinder Spires is a steam-punk fantasy. If you like genre-savvy characters, and plot packed with awesome and shout outs, you'll definitely like his works.
