Teaser Tuesday (29 August)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted at The Purple Booker.

Anyone can play along by doing the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

“I knew what death meant now. It was conversations cut off.

(~ The Philosopher Kings by Jo Walton, Kindle Edition, 2015)

[ The second instalment of The Thessaly Trilogy, which I am reading now not just because I like this author, but also because it features, in a fictionalised form, one of the historical personages I am writing about now – Pico della Mirandola. But you can appreciate it even if you don’t.]

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here and/or in The Purple Booker.

    Ooo… I LOVE The Thessaly Trilogy:)). And I LOVE Jo Walton’s writing. An EXCELLENT choice, Steph:). Mine envisages a world where The Terminator prevailed and John Connor didn’t… https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2017/08/29/teaser-tuesday-29th-august-2017/

        She absolutely is. There’s a marvellous interview with her, discussing her whole body of work – including what she’s currently writing over at Fantasy-Faction which I happened to stumble across, by the way…

          thanks for the info. I had the occasion of attending one of her public readings this summer in Edinburgh Book Festival. Awesome. 🙂

            Oh what a treat! She was part of an amazing evening at Fantasycon where the panellists stayed afterwards and walked waaay into the evening. I didn’t know who she as I hadn’t read any of her books then. Just as well, really. I would have probably crumbled into HUGE fangirl mode…

    Great teaser. I have read some things by Jo Walton but not the Thessaly Trilogy. Here are my teasers this week. Happy reading!
