It's been a long time since I've been here giving stuff out, but got a bit of money, steam sale, been drinking, etc. Rules:
>$5 or less game >recommend me fantasy writer/books >no GRRM, Tolkien, or other obvious >Don't add me and beg for games >feel free to add me to play games together though
I'll give about 7 games tonight I think, and I'll probably be back before the sale ends as I am an alcoholic with too much time and little money, also I'll give out some keys I've had sitting around, feel free to be shitty and picky about it. Others have in the past.
>>736667766 http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198156160332/ Ever read the old SW Tarkin series? They are really great and worth a read. Look it up, even if you are a casual star wars fan, the books really do the franchise justice. Explores a new character from the Imperial perspective. I'm looking for Alien vs. Predator (2010) bundle for $4
I read it some time ago, but look up the Looking Glass Wars, it's heavily inspired by Alice in Wonderland but a tad more gruesome. id/FightThePowah i've always wanted to try Mount and Blade Warband if you're so kind
http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198077858632/ I dont know if you've read the witcher books, but i would certainly recommend them. If you decide to buy me a game, i'd like Xcom:Enemy unknown. Thanks
Roadside Picnic by the Strugatsky brothers. It is a fantastic read and offers a biting, dark, yet suble and satirical tone not only towards Soviet society, but also against the genres that influenced Picnic's story. It also inspired Dmitry Glukhovsky's Metro series (both the games and book)
Yo guys, Thanks for all the book recomendations, there's a couple of you I won't be able to get this time around, about to run dry tonight, but as I said I'll be back, once again I appreciate all the different series and books, I'll definitely check them out, and if you choose to stay on my friends list, I might just let you know what I thought.
I care less about the gifts and more about thebooks and just want to really recommend Robin Hobbs. I've only read The Farseer Trilogy and the Liveship Traders so far, but the books are amazing. They're not really dark in the same way Nick Perumov or GRR Martin is (and those are very different in grit from eachother, too) but they're intensely personal somehow, and superbly written, with interesting characters. I never felt like I really, really, really liked anyone, but few were truly hated either, and I think that's great; nothing ever felt flat. Farseer Trilogy is chronologically first, by the way; start there.
Nick Perumov's Keeper of the Swords/Chronicles of the Rift series is also superb, but for very different reasons. They're much heavier, and very dark, very much a long fantasy epic with the world in the balance, starting on a winding road in the ass-end of nowhere. The dystopian soviet communism the writer grew up under really shines through, but only in feeling. Extremely good series, but heavier to both pick up and put down.
I don't know of anything below $5 that I want, and I don't have Steam up at the moment, so you can save any gifts for someone else, but my Steam is /id/Luckmann. I hope you find something good to read.
>>736673186 oh wow man, I appreciate that. I'll definitely look into those. I gotta say I like the range of fantasy, from dark and grim and gritty and brutal, to just almost saturday morning-esque style? I'm really big on just entertaining stories, things that can keep me gripped, regardless of the target audience, I'll check out both Hobbs and Perumov. Thanks

I'm tapped on funds for the night. I am gonna keep dropping keys, some older, some newer, if you aren't too picky, you can add me and get one, if you ARE picky, well I don't know, you can call me a piece of shit if you want. I kinda get off on the insults. That being said, Appreciate the recommendations so far. I offer one back:
>John Dies at the End.
Not so much fantasy in the style of fantasy we've been talking about here, but its a good read.
Another one that is more horror than fantasy, by Charlee Jacobs: Dread in the Beast. When I was overseas in the military I saw a lot of rough shit (not the roughest mind you), but this book fucked me up more. I highly recommend it.
