Has anyone read or heard of this series?  They were advertised on AFR. Here is the Amazon review of the first book.

http://www.amazon.com/Into-Strange-Land-McGunnegal-Chronicles-ebook/dp/B00E44HL2S

It is apparently a trilogy of epic fantasy written by an Orthodox guy and he incorporates many sayings of the Church Fathers into the stories.  It looks rather interesting especially because I am a bit of a geek when it comes to stuff like this.

Reading the title, I thought this would be about a Professor McGonagall spin-off.



I haven't heard about this series before, but it looks interesting.

I was on the Kindle already, so all I had to do was switch from browser to book-shopping app, and hey presto! Grin At that price, resistance was futile.

Oh.  I should probably stop strangling Denise now.  Sorry about that.  I get quite excited when I get a helpful person in my grasp.

Look, Lennie was shot in the head because he got excited when petting a rabbit.  And the rabbit wasn't even a catechumen.
