A fun collection! The "rogue" theme was usually interpreted pretty traditionally, but with some fun surprises. Patrick Rothfuss's story was great; GRRM's was a little disappointing. More heraldry and family tree notes than actual plot, I felt.

Still, well worth a read. ( )

Some strong and fun fantasy stories about people roughly considered 'rogues'. ( )
  Karlstar | Apr 24, 2021 |
Bast was never one of my favourite characters in the Kingkiller Chronicle (he's a bit too flighty to really get a grip on his motives), but he's definitely a good character for a "day in the life" type story like this on. We're still not clear on why Bast chooses to spend his time at the Inn, though we know there's something going on behind the scenes here, but clearly Bast's life is spent doing much more than being a bar-back. He cavorts through the countryside, spies on bathing beauties, gathers food, and most importantly has a unique deal with the children of the neighbouring town. He answers questions and helps them with their problems in exchange for small favours and large secrets. It's a bit random in terms of an actual story to tell, but we get a glimpse into Bast's uniquely trickster ways - and a clear hint that he is more fey than he reveals. ( )

~ What Do You Do? (AKA The Grownup) by Gillian Flynn 4* - I liked how you think you know who is in control but it switches a couple/few times between each main character.

~ Roaring Twenties by Carrie Vaughn 3* - Urban Fantasy. Pointless. Invisible bar. 2 MCs go there and OH SOMETHING MAJOR IS GONNA HAPPEN!!! but they are powerful witches and they can save themselves. The MCs meet with bar own to try to team up but she says she doesn't need them. Feds discover bar (the major thing). A lot of "See I told you so's". Everybody goes about their merry way.

~ A Year and a Day in Old Theradane by Scott Lynch DNF

~ Heavy Metal by Cherie Preist DNF

~ A Cargo of Ivories by Garth Nix 3*

~ The Caravan to Nowhere by Phyllis Eisenstein 3*

~ The Curious Affair of the Dead Wives by Lisa Tuttle 3*

~ Now Showing by Connie Willis 5* loved it

~ The Lightning Tree by Patrick Rothfuss 4* It takes place prior to the opening of The Name of the Wind and follows Bast around for a day (third person). Bast is a busy guy. This is one day of Bast's life. He sells/trades/does favors for secrets/riddles/tasks to be done. I think everything he traded for that day, he used that day. Such a long winded writer but enjoyable. Your in the story to hear the story not to find out what happened. Hard to describe.

~The Rogue Prince (aka A King's Brother) by George R.R. Martin 3* A Song of Fire and Ice story

EVERYBODY LOVES A ROGUE (by George R. R. Martin)

… though sometimes we live to regret it.

Scoundrels, con men, and scalawags. Ne’er-do-wells, thieves, cheats, and rascals. Bad boys and bad girls. Swindlers, seducers, deceivers, flimflam men, imposters, frauds, fakes, liars, cads, tricksters … they go by many names, and they turn up in stories of all sorts, in every genre under the sun, in myth and legend … and, oh, everywhere in history as well. They are the children of Loki, the brothers of Coyote. Sometimes they are heroes. Sometimes they are villains. More often they are something in between, grey characters … and grey has long been my favorite color. It is so much more interesting than black or white.
