So, book 7 of the Expanse series came out yesterday and, to no one’s surprise, I burned through it, finishing it really late (like 3 a.m. … which explains why I was late to work.) Overall, I enjoyed it but the two writers did a thing in it that I’ll go into more detail below […]
Just recently discovered these books and I’m now reading the second one – “The Jennifer Morgue” – which is giving me all sorts of awesome ideas for gaming. In the simplest terms, the main character is a British “operative” (though honestly, he’s just a tech guy who knows some spell stuff) who has been caught […]
So, continuing my work on shamelessly ripping off Neverwhere by Gaiman for my GURPS: Monster Hunters game set in the Dresden Files universe, I’ve also started robbing from Doctor Who, principally for descriptive prose.
I’ve had this book for a while on my Kindle, but for some reason or another, I kept stalling out on it, which is kind of weird because I generally love Gaiman’s work. American Gods, for example, is a fantastic book (and the TV show isn’t half bad either, although I did have some problems with […]
Started reading the Traveller book, “Agent of the Imperium,” and its kind of weird. Based on my reading of this, the universe has more of a 40K feel than I would have expected. Honestly, the 40K Inquisitor-based Eisenhorn and Ravenor books by Dan Abnett wouldn’t feel out of place in the setting based on this book…
So, we’re on to Book 2 of the series, “Caliban’s War” in the show. Interesting that they’re skipping straight to it though I wouldn’t be terribly surprised if there’s a timeskip. Exactly how long said skip might be though, we’ll have to see…
Finished it this afternoon and it immediately became my favorite book of The Expanse series.
Nope. Didn’t watch even a moment of the Super Bowl this year. Instead, I finished Cibola Burn, the 4th book of The Expanse series. I’d started this book before – got about 1/4 of the way through it before something happened and I forgot about it for some reason – but once I got over […]
Sweet! I ordered this from Amazon and it came in today. I think this is one of the only Heinlein books I haven’t read – as a self-declared Kindle snob, I’m still irked it isn’t available for that so I’m having to rely on the dead tree version.
Just finished reading Battlefront: Twilight Company, which is a Star Wars tie-in novel based on the Battlefront video game and … wow. This was a surprisingly good book, especially for a video game tie-in. It was tense, brutal, violent and really showed what the actual war would be like. Very cool book.
