I love best when it all combines into a programme like this:
Children's Fantasy Lit in the Modern World.
Now I want to read The Eragon Series like woah.
Go and listen. It's fascinating. And not just because Neil gets to talk first. ;)
Oh, and I guess I'm going to have to break down and read me some Tamora Pierce. The only reason I haven't is because a writer friend of mine doesn't like her, which is really a terrible reason. :/
