    September '18 Reading - A Labor of Love

    We're infested with them... Oh, wait!

    Yuval Noah Harari?

    I read the first two. Red Snow speaks for me in this matter.

    September '18 Reading - A Labor of Love

    I'm reading Vanished Kingdoms by Norman Davies. A book about European states that have almost been completely forgotten by history. Interesting so far.

    August '18 Reading- (Insert Clever Subtitle)

    I'm just getting the paperwhite. The big advantage of the Oasis for me -- not that I ever had one -- was the resolution. But the newer paperwhites have matched that now and I've never had an issue where a wet kindle exploded, killing thousands, while simultaneously opening a portal into Hell to release hordes of Peadar-eating-demons. What are the chances?

    August '18 Reading- (Insert Clever Subtitle)

    I very much enjoyed my reread of Abercrombie's "Best Served Cold". My new kindle arrives tomorrow, so I can get back to the Adrian Tchaikovsky I was in the middle of when I lost the other one

    July '18 Reading - What We Read in the Shadows

    I'm lost without mine. I was halfway through Adrian Tchaikovsky's latest. Ah well! Onwards and upwards...

    July '18 Reading - What We Read in the Shadows

    Thank you so much! I'm always delighted to hear somebody is still reading these As for me, I lost my kindle, so, I'll be rereading Joe Abercrombie's Best Served Cold. I hope it's as good as I remember it.

    I'm reading Redemption's Blade by Adrian Tchaikovsky. Really enjoying it so far.

    July '18 Reading - What We Read in the Shadows

    I'm reading Alterworld by D. Rus. It's basically a (very) male teenage fantasy of living in a video RPG.

    The Wild Cards Thread

    There will be another book with some of the same characters. It won't be a triad, I don't think.

    The Wild Cards Thread

    No! This is an exception that occurred because some other book was cancelled. I *think*. However, in this case, since the book is mostly based in the UK, I feel it is very appropriate

    The Wild Cards Thread

    Just in case you don't know yet, the new Wild Cards book, Knaves Over Queens, is now available in Ireland, the UK and Australia. It will hit North America next year. As I have some work in this volume, I'm getting a copy to give away. I'm not sure if I'm allowed post a competition here, but you can see the details in my twitter, my blog or my facebook feed. I'm sorry it's only one copy

    June '18 Reading - Something something witty.

    I have started Nina Allan's The Rift.
  14. Hi there, did you ever book that house? Are you still considering it?

    May - Reading 2018 - Have another?

    I'm reading American War by Omar El Akkad. It's about a US civil war that begins in 2074. I'm only about 20 pages in, but feeling good about it so far.
