    First Quarter 2019 Reading

    I'm reading Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve. So far, so fun.
  2. OK, @DaveAx! I got a response from Dave Lally: "see the f/bk pages for both W and for E: Enterprise Train Con (Wed 21 Aug): meet no later thAn 1430 at madigans in Connolly (we cathCh 1520 to Belfast)..." I think he means, check the facebook pages of WorldCon and EuroCon (TitanCon). They're taking the Enterprise Train from Connolly Station at 15:20 -- that's in easy walking distance of the Dublin Convention Centre -- on Wednesday 21 August. Meeting at no later than 14:30. I hope that helps!
  3. I have sent Dave L. a message to ask him. I'll report back when he does
  4. The distance between the two cities is less than two hours! However, if you are driving, you could do worse than stopping off in Carlingford for a bit. And obviously, anybody who loves archeology should book a visit to New Grange, aka Brú na Bóinne... A

    Taking @Astromech's suggestion and reading Constantinople: The Last Great Siege, 1453 by Roger Crowley -- What a great writer he is!

    Ooh! I loved the latter. Another one to add to the wishlist then...

    I am still on my reread of Watership Down by Richard Adams. It is a deserved classic.

    The plot was kinda Kvothy too, IMO...

    Duologies, what would you reccomend?

    Isn't this what the old Ace Doubles were? Although the books may have been written by two different authors...

    I didn't read the last fantasy series, so I'm not in a position to judge. But that was my strong impression. Maybe I need to recalibrate my Gary Stu detection device

    I finished Cold Iron by Miles Cameron. It was very readable, but way too Gary Stu for my taste. Next up is The Armored Saint by Myke Cole, which Tor gave away for free to subscribers to their newsletter.

    I read Scott McCloud's Making Comics, an excellent follow-up to "Understanding Comics". Now reading Cold Iron by Miles Cameron. The worldbuilding is so-so, but I'm enjoying it and thought the brief bit of characterisation in the prologue was masterful.

    I mentioned I was reading it on Facebook and Twitter. A lot of people came out of the woodwork to say what a huge influence it had been on their lives, so yeah, I'd say it's perfect!

    I just read Understanding Comics by Scott McCloud. Excellent comic book about the philosophy and craft behind... comic books.
