Hi again, to whoever may be reading this blog at this point. OMUtB is only a couple of days old, but I've gotten some nibbles from the blog community, so I am feeling encouraged! I have hope that I will be able to get someone to read this thing!
So, I made a promise to myself that I would try to post at least once every day (we'll see how that holds up), and since I don't think the second part of my self-indulgent testimonial will be ready today, I wanted to ask a question or two, to perhaps generate some conversation amongst those few who may be reading.
So, here goes:
In the first part of my testimonial that I've posted, I talk about how the reading of a specific book introduced me to fantasy fiction, and was also instrumental in my plunging into D&D. So I ask you:
What book, or books if you can't pinpoint one, was your gateway to fantasy literature? And I guess, by extension, let us know if this book/books also had something to do with your entry into the gaming world.
Now, I guess I don't necessarily have to limit this to just fantasy books/gaming. If you perhaps are a fan of, say, horror novels, what got you into that genre, and did it eventually lead to your getting into some kind of related gaming?
Sorry if I seem scattered...it's getting close to three-day-weekend time for me. And I haven't had my afternoon victuals yet, so the blood sugar is plummeting.
Anyway, I would love to hear from you! I probably won't post again until tomorrow (I hope), so until then, happy Friday and enjoy the holiday!
