"(Australia. The only continent designed with a difficulty rating of “ha ha fuck you no.”)"
- Half-Off Ragnarok, Seanan McGuire
Why do I get the feeling that Seanan has a love affair with Australia? Cause this sounds like her version of heaven.
I am 100% sure she absolutely does have a love affair with Australia, especially after reading How Green This Land, How Blue This Sea. Even if I hadn’t known her for 10-ish years and that she refers to herself as Princess of the Land of Poison and Flame, that would have closed the deal for me. (Even considering that most of this land is brown, not green, but that’s beside the point.)
I’m crossing my fingers that my copy of Half-Off Ragnarok arrives on Tuesday or Wednesday. Monday is a public holiday, and on Thursday I leave for a tiny town holiday where the bush is RIGHT THERE on the back doorstep, so reading about snakey type things would be most excellent in that environment.
Lauren, are you borrowing my life?
Because I also have a copy of Half-Off Ragnarok that is due to arrive some time next week and will also be heading out to small town out in the country on Thursday. Admittedly, instead of a holiday I’m heading off for lol surgery, but it’s surprisingly close.
