Thanks, SV. You took the words right out of my.....head, since I would never have actually said that out loud. Or I guess posted it since this is the internet.

We read a few of his short stories in English, too. I don't care for them.
Plus, I've already started rereading Ender's Game. I'm actually reading the introduction this time.

Hemingway - XP Though to be fair - writing a paper about Hemingway himself would be interesting as long as you didn't have to actually, you know, read any Hemingway.

ETA - ah, I see that SxT has already linked to our earlier conversation!

There will be no bashing of Hemingway in my presence. He was a boss and classy as hell.

Ho ho ho. Good one.

Odd that you would describe a man who made his life a testament to half-drunk insecurity about his own masculinity as "a boss".

As were and are quite a large number of fine writers, but I think she was looking specifically for fantasy writers.

Piers Anthony, Ray Bradbury (RAY BRADBURY), Marion Zimmer Bradley, Robin McKinley, George R. R. Martin, Lloyd Alexander, Jane Yolen, and Ursula K. Le Guin are all notable American fantasy authors.

EDIT: Hag, I love that Jennifer Lawrence gif. In fact, I love most Jennifer Lawrence gifs. I may actually love Jennifer Lawrence, I haven't decided yet.

You are wrong on both counts here.

Ice tea is the most thirst quenching drink in existance.

And proper ales should usually be served room temp.

Hemingway, beer and iced tea.

...and the popcorn gif.

None of those things are related.

I "know" all you guys, but this thread feels totally foreign now.

Yeah, what little I've read about her she seems pretty cool. I was going to go see The Hunger Games this weekend, but instead I played video games and bought a crock pot and a cherry/olive pitter.

Well, my original intent was to sit there and watch Safety and The Hag and Sam and people argue about Hemingway.
Then I think I got there too late.
