For the new profile beta, I love that by using the ban_set command in the admin console we can hide any communities we want from being listed (posting access is only viewable by the owner of the account in the newest beta!) - SO useful for comms we don't want visible...or just peeps like me who join 250+ comms.
 Just finished John Levitt's Dog Days and I'm looking forward to the sequel, New Tricks which comes out in November. I also ended up watching fangs_fur_fey, debut2009 and shared_wisdom. Need to add Spontaneous Derivation to feeds and look into SF Novelists. Am constantly surprised by how many authors can be found on LJ though O_O
 Do y'all have any recs for Urban Fantasy books? Or plain fantasy? I'm looking for books with male protagonists, NOT female. Some of the ones I've enjoyed are:
- Unshapely Things (Connor Grey, Book 1) ~ Mark Del Franco
- Hero ~ Perry Moore
- Nightlife (Cal Leandros, Book 1) ~ Rob Thurman
- The Temeraire series ~ Naomi Novik
- Dog Days ~ John Levitt
I wish there were a place that lists recent and maybe not so recent first books of trilogies and/or sequences of 4 or more books. I keep stumbling on lists which point out Book 2 or 3 in a series and it's so frustrating trying to find the first books instead >_< Grr. Argh.
