Poll and Discussion: Series Serials

I am noticing a growing trend where instead of releasing a full novel, authors’ works are now being published chapter by chapter as they are writing their story; this is in a similar vein of fanfiction.  I used to be a major manga reader (Japanese comics) and while I’m used to a story being piecemealed for years at a time with 17-40 pages (in either weekly or monthly installments), I’m…

So many series, so little time!

Hello, fellow Paranormal and Urban Fantasy fans!  I figure I will share a little history about myself.  For the past 6 years I’ve been an avid fan of The Hollows series by Kim Harrison.  Aside from catching up on all of the Anita Blake series, I didn’t really follow much else.
