You know how some people like to play the "casting game" with a book's characters? As a mountaineer, I can never resist playing it with my books' landscapes. I've shared some pics here in the past of mountain spots that inspired me for the Shattered Sigil series; but today over at BookSworn I went whole-hog and provided an illustrated guide to the journey that Dev and Kiran take across the mountains in The Whitefire Crossing. Hope you enjoy the pics as much as I did picking them out.
I've also got a guest post over at Bibliotropic, talking about Pamela Dean's Tam Lin and the ways in which re-reading a book can surprise us.
And in not-related-to-me-or-my-books news, Fantasy Book Cafe's Women in SFF Month might have concluded, but Bookworm Blues is still hosting another series of "Special Needs in Strange Worlds" guest posts. There've been some really excellent ones so far, both new posts and re-runs of the best of last year's series - I highly recommend you check them out.
