    Word on the street is the other mods jumped on those posts tout de suite and redacted the bejeezus out of them, with the originals held offline by Silencer for "safekeeping" and "continued research".

    ;)

    Among other things this bitch slap from God has me chuckling:

    I accept that I am the forum sex symbol, though it is a heavy burden to bear.


    Good thing you have those broad shoulders then. ;)

    Fine, you get objectified and I get objected to. :p

    WTF is it with Mandalorians and

    Spoiler


    Also really liking the concept art at the end of the episodes. Very Ralph McQuarrie-like. The higher def does it justice.

    Fuck you, KJ Parker/Tom Holt.

    Brilliant book, shitty ending. :(

    Ok, well not quite shitty, but inconclusive. Dammit.

    EDIT
    What would have been a good 6 siege engines out of 7, dropped to a 5 or even a 4 because of the ending. Which has been compared to having to dash out to a dentist appointment by some online commenters.
    But I thought it was quite deliberate and cute and kind of weirdly ... appropriate(?), just very much not to my liking.

    Forgot to mention I recently read Jack Campbell - The Lost Fleet 1: Relentless.

    Fairly standard mil-SF space fleet stuff which was elevated by the cool descriptions of the problems of fighting in space with more realistic physics and time lag with approaching-relativistic speeds. Plus the main character John "Black Jack" Geary has the very interesting problem of being a hero from the early stages of a 100+ year war who was thought killed but was actually in hibernation in an escape pod. Found and woken up, he finds he has been elevated to near-mythical status and has to reconcile that with the way he actually does things.

    3 living anachronisms out of 5.

    Ok, my current commute read is Felix Castor 1 by Mike Carey
    and I am not super impressed. Had higher expectations of Carey. I really don't like Castor as a character. He seems to like making his own job difficult.
    Is this Dresden 1 syndrome? Does it get better?


    Yeah I tried Felix Castor 1 a few years ago and didn't feel it either. DNF.

    I just started Sixteen Ways to Defend a Walled City by KJ Parker because of the blurb and some love it got here a little while ago.
    I had previously sworn off Parker after the Fencer trilogy which was well-written but left a bad taste in the mouth because of some of the characters and where the plot went.

    So I started warily but the voice of the main character - Orhan - is quite captivating and I am finding it quite engaging. Parker really can write.
    Normally I am not a fan of first person narratives but when it is done well I tend not to find it jarring.
