Hi everyone!

I've just joined the community - I'm glad I found a place for Garth Nix fans :D - so I thought I'd introduce myself if that's okay~  :)
My name is Danielle~ I have to admit the only Garth Nix books I've read are Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen, but I'm working on getting around to the others :P I only just read those 3 books earlier this year. I've been keeping an eye on them for a few years but for some reason never actually got them. Then finally this year I borrowed them from the library, and read them all and loved them. I recently bought them because I kept getting cravings to read them and really wanted to own them myself. I'll be re-reading them again soon once my semester has finished at uni :D


More movie talk.

Nothing we didn't know.

I'm so worried.
Sabriel has all of my all-time favorite Nix characters in it.

Touchstone seems like a character that'll be safe, but Mogget will be easy to screw up.
I do not want a Garfield cat tagging along with the Abhorsen.

The Lord of the Rings movies are giving me hope that fantasy books can be portrayed decently.

Some extracts on Superior Saturday

gethee

I just wanted to say that there is an extract for the first two chapters of Superior Saturday. It is excellent and I'm really excited about the book coming out. There are also more information about the book on that site. Yeah, there a quite a few spoilers, but not too much to give away the whole book. Proceed with caution.


I'm very excited about this book. I still have a little over a month before it comes out (while those in Australia get it in a couple of days -- lucky!).

"Several steps closer to a SABRIEL film . . .

One of the frequent questions that I usually don't adequately answer is about what is happening with a possible SABRIEL film. Well, today I can say a bit more than usual as PUBLISHING NEWS has reported on the "package" that we have put together and will be taking to studios in Hollywood in a few weeks.

That package is:

DIRECTOR: Anand Tucker (HILARY & JACKIE, SHOPGIRL and the original director of THE GOLDEN COMPASS before he left over creative differences)

WRITTEN BY: Dan Futterman (Academy Award nominee for his script of CAPOTE and also well-known actor, most recently in A MIGHTY HEART) and Garth Nix

PRODUCED BY: Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner of Plan B (Brad Pitt's production company).

I have always said that I wanted to co-write the script and work with people who had made great films and whose work I respected, this team represents the achievement of that goal.

I'll keep you all posted on what happens from here. Obviously we hope it will proceed, but it may not, given the vagaries of the film world.

I've been slacking. Sorry. And I'm sorry about the negative tint to this post, but I'm disappointed and you can argue with me if you'd like. That's cool.

Superior Saturday will be out in 3 or 4 months! He has links to podcasts on his site, but I'm so disappointed in the other new stuff I've read I want to hold off on these.

Sir Hereward and Mister Fitz Go To War Again

Honestly, this didn't hold my attention past the first paragraph. Anybody want to summarize and/or encourage me to rethink not reading it?

Bad Luck, Trouble, Death and Vampire Sex
Some kid accidentally kills and old lady and humps a vampire or something.

First Chapter of A Confusion of Princes

As with the first chapter in any Garth Nix book, you can't tell what the hell is going on by the first chapter. And, judging by what I've just read..I think I'll read this one in the store before I buy it.

Imperial Galaxy Facebook Game
I'm pissed off that you can customize the male characters more. And that everybody is called a prince.
I'm a feminist, what can I say. But honestly, is that hard to make the hair fit on the head?

Sabriel Game
I'll be honest, this disappoints me because I suck at it. Completely biased on this one.

If you'd like to discuss any of these in detail, start a new post. This place needs some life.

I bought Sabriel on a whim. After reading it 5 times over, a mate told me that the next one was out. I worked my way through them with great pleasure. I also bought Across the Wall. But seeing as I'm studying for my A levels, ive had all my books taken away. :( Ive read Shades children ad the other series, To be honest Mr Monday was alright I guess, but the others where a real disappointment :( but seriously. Garth Nix- a truly great story teller!!! i look forward to more.

Hi there! I've recently decided to read all my KttK books again- and has anyone noticed that there is an error in Sir Thursday? On page 51 suzy enters Monday's Dayroom and hides behind Noons chair- but she does exactly the same thing on page 66

I come bearing a Keys to the Kingdom blog crew, for those who are interested~

Since I finally finished Lady Friday the other night I thought it was time to post some of my Keys to the Kingdom arts as well. These are all sketches to get a hold of the characters, though Arthur came to me pretty easily. Though that's probably because he's on the cover of all the books. XD

Monday through WednesdayCollapse )

I have more sketches but I'll save those for later. Better to stockpile them and show them bit by bits. Thanks for looking!
