Posts Tagged ‘Tortall’ Tamora Pierce Writes Fantasy That Changes Lives

Last month, Meghan Ball at wrote a wonderful, personal article about her experiences with Tamora’s books, and the ways in which they’ve made an impact.

Tamora Pierce should be a household name. We should all be crowded around our TVs every Saturday night watching The Song of the Lioness show on HBO. Her works should be considered a cultural touchstone that inspire generations. Prog rock bands should be creating epic concept albums based on her stories. There should be Funko Pops of Alanna of Trebond, Numair Salmalín, and Keladry of Mindelan.

But there aren’t. (At least, not yet.)

Thank you, Meghan, for the kind words!

Check out this recent SYFY WIRE article by Tricia Ennis: Tamora Pierce’s Tortall Books Deserve to Be an Awesome TV Series! Alas, there aren’t any Tortall TV shows in the works right now, but maybe there’s a network out there listening to all of Tricia’s great points.

After all, there are a lot of good things happening with fantasy in TV these days. Isn’t it about time for a prestige series for girls?
