"... because it is 'its own nothingness'
the gap in the journey that annihilates
the entire road. so far one goes has gone, must come again to where the pathway and the feet are identical, and you are not
the figure lost, or i the shadow left."

✳️➡️obvious qotd: do you like dragons?!⬅️✳️
°
°
(all these books have dragons in them, in case you missed it!)
°
°
i've loved dragons since i was a wee bairn and my mother used to read to me a variety of books! i'm so glad she did! she turned me into a lifelong reader! and books are a fabulous escape!
°
°
°
i keep thinking i should apologize to you all; for not having the candles & bookmarks & art prints - - all the beautiful merch, from various fandoms.
°
°
we are on a tight budget, as i have been unable to work for years. and when it gets right down to it, i would rather use the money on books!!! so #sorrynotsorry as it is my account! 😏😋😘

Day 12/30: underrated. the fionavar tapestry is probably the most underrated books i know. kay is a brilliant writer, a modern day tolkien. he actually wrote under tolkien’s name for years when christopher tolkien was publishing her fathers unfinished works. the tone is far darker than anything found in tolkien’s works so don’t expect a happy, uplifting fantasy story. the first book ends on what is probably the most brutal things i have read. fans of lord or the ring and song of ice and fire will love this. #guygavrielkay #thefionavartapestry #bookstagram

"we find a way out together, or we do not. are you not proud of what we have achieved, we two? is it not a denial of our very lives to speak as you are speaking now? i will not cling to some miserable form of existence at the price of all we have been." - guy gavriel kay, "the lions of al-rassan"
.
.
inspired by the reconquest of muslim spain by christian monarchs, this novel captured the richness of a kingdom in the twilight of its golden age. it was fun to see characters of different faiths and cultures form bonds of friendship. guy gavriel kay has a way of writing characters and relationships that give me a warm, glowy feeling. but this book also ripped my heart out and shredded it into tiny pieces, so be warned.

There's a reason for everything.

Hi friends.
.
happy monday.
.
.
day 6 of #grimdragon is {recommend a series}
.
it’s been a while since i’ve shared the fionavar tapestry, hasn’t it? it’s one of my absolute favourites, echoing the profound heart of tolkien and rich and lush in world building too with prose that leaves you breathless and sometimes moved to tears. truly stellar portal fantasy by the inimitable guy gavriel kay 😌
.
in other news....
.
.

i’ve done it! i’ve submitted my #lgbtq space opera novella to tordotcom publishing and i think i must be crazy 🙃
.
but i’m not. it’s taken me awhile to grasp it, but take a lesson from me: don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. believe in what you do. believe that your mind and heart can work together to make something worth sharing with the world. that’s the first step, friends. .
hope you have an amazing week ❤️❤️
.

Guess why i like this? from the outstanding (closing soon, i think) "heavenly bodies" exhibition at the met in ny: fashion and the catholic imagination. dolce and gabbana, and empress theodora, inspired by the ravenna mosaic of her. #sarantium #theodora #mosaics #guygavrielkay #ravenna #fashion #themetropolitanmuseumofart

Memory lane. this was the worldwide launch of the darkest road at bakka books. mike hale (designer), martin springett (cover artist/musician), sue reynolds (cartographer of fionavar/polymath/needs too many descriptors by now), a certain kay, john rose (owner of bakka, fetching while holding balloons). martin's artwork was on display. #fionavartapestry #booklaunchparty #1980sfashion #guygavrielkay #champagne🍾 #nogreyhair!
