If I’m successful in my application to Manchester Metropolitan University, then AJ Dalton will become one of my tutors in September. I’ve taken a look at the other tutors and he seems to be the one with the biggest foot in the fantasy genre (is that even a saying?) so he may well be my main focus of inspiration and enlightenment. Of course, that’s a big responsibility and many may pale at the thought but, as he isn’t a follower of my blog, he probably won’t know the weight upon his shoulders.
So, with a two-week holiday coming up on the 12th July, I’m going to shoe-horn his books into my reading plan for 2014 and get through them whilst I sit on the deck of a ship somewhere in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea.
As he is an author of epic fantasy novels, if the ship decides to sink, I can always strap his trilogy of books together and use them to keep my wife and I afloat until we are rescued.
