The OF Blog: Someday, ev'rything's gonna be diff'rent

Someday, ev'rything's gonna be diff'rent

As Bob Dylan sang in "When I Paint My Masterpiece," someday, everything truly will be different. This is just the first step in an experiment to expand the scope of what we discuss over at wotmania's Other Fantasy section. Needless to say, this will be a work in progress and you can expect a lot of variety and occasional bouts of abject weirdness as this Blog develops its own identity.

In the coming months, it is safe to expect reviews of books that aren't necessarily related to the speculative fiction genre. You can look forward to links to other sites and the burning topics related to the spec fic field. And you can even find out the lyrics to the Safety Dance if you wanna. Whatever strange and twisted roads we might travel over the coming months, it should be a long, strange, fun, and warped trip. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

Cool, look forward to this. I read your post over at wotmania, but I still don't understand if this is an extension of OF or a personal blog mixed with OF (or just sff-related, whatever) stuff. What should I expect to read here that I can't/won't on OF?

Anyway, bookmarked the page, and even created an account just so I could comment!

You should expect more detailed reviews, more commentary on what Jake and I read and see on other sites, as well as things of a more personal nature that while they might not appeal directly to an average OF reader, they still might be of interest. For example, I posted a short list of Advance Reader Copies (ARCs) that are projected to be hot sales in the winter months ahead. None of those were really SF/Fantasy books, so I wouldn't be able to discuss them there. Yet I don't think the Com MB would be the place for such a discussion.

There also will be a few surprises along the way, some of which will likely surprise us as well!
