So 2013 was a pretty great year for a lot of things – there were a tonne of great books, a heck of a lot of amazing television, and some great music too. It was also an odd year for films, with a lot of major blockbusters – including a few I was really looking forward to – completely misfiring for me.
This is my personal list of things I thought were awesome this year. Some of this list appeared over at Forbidden Planet International a couple of weeks ago, but there’s some extras here. And as there is a distinct risk of me waffling for ages, which is boring, here’s my list in (mostly) pictures:
Person of Interest (CBS)
Marnie – Crystal World
Cults – Static
Mazzy Star – Seasons Of Your Day
Giant Drag – Waking Up Is Hard To Do
Special mention to The Cure, who started playing their 1985 b-side Stop Dead live, for the first time ever.
BOOKS FOR 2014
There are two books out in 2014 that everybody needs to check out. I’ve been lucky enough to read them both, and they are amazing.
The Copper Promise is also being serialised in four ebooks, starting with Ghosts of the Citadel on Friday, 20th December.
