Ridiculous: solely because of this fun thread, I suspect, this weekend while I was laid up with a three-day fever and a cough I thought would hollow me out completely, leave nothing but a husk of a dude behind, I ended up putting in the extended edition of Fellowship. Still good as ever (though, first time I saw it, Boromir wasn’t Eddard Stark…), and now I have to find like eight hours to finish the trilogy. But it’ll be worth it. Again.

Because I likely won’t remember to give attribution for each link, I’ll just say it here: probably three-quarters of these paleo type links are from a friend, Joe Lansdale (and all the Apple ones are from my wife).

Which is going to be a movie/TV-heavy list, for the first time ever. Not because my tastes or habits changed—fiction on the page is still and always where it’s at for me—but because, since I’m now judging for the World Fantasy Awards for 2018, it would feel a bit . . . weird and unclassy, I guess, to be saying what my favorite books of the year are.

However, I can slap a couple of novels up here that in no way could get submitted for a World Fantasy Award. So:
