Book Review: SAND by Hugh Howey

Sand

I finished Sand this morning and was surprised to find a tear. I’ve wanted to cry from reading a book before, and did at the end of listening to 11/22/63, but never have while reading someone else’s fiction. Sand Omnibus did that.

AISFP 130 – Moses Siregar III

BGW (99x100)

We talked with our very own Moses Siregar III about his debut novel, The Black God’s War (just released). We found out about Moses’s sordid past (lots of D&D and coke, erm, Coca Cola) and how his rekindled interest in RPGs became the gateway drug for writing fantasy novels. Moses also revealed more of his inner geek, as he talked about how Robotech, The Iliad, and The Decemberists inspired him to write his book.
