    I am reading HP Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness. Oh my god it's longwinded. I get it. The architecture is really weird and the icy mountain looks evil, sheesh. Just get to the tentacly goodness!

    I'm 40 pages into an 80 page story and it feels like 400.

    This your first Lovecraft?

    Your comment re aliens makes me wonder if i just started at the wrong place.

    Perhaps! I've only read her sci-fi. (I was planning on reading the Morgaine Cycle years ago, just never got around to it.) But Faded Sun, the Chanur saga, and Rider at the Gate and its sequel are all fantastic.

    Picked up "Kellanved's Reach" as well as The Faded Sun Trilo (omnibus) by C.J. Cherryh. She's one of those authors I hear about from time to time, but never tried.

    I "popped my Cherryh" on The Faded Sun, if you'll forgive the metaphor. Loved that trilogy, and have been meaning to reread it for a while now. No one writes aliens quite like she does.

    Yeah, there's three full novels and a novella.

    What's the novella? The only other thing I've seen by her is TO BE TAUGHT, IF FORTUNATE, but that's set explicitly outside the Wayfarers universe.

    Finished The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet and can't recommend it enough, particularly to anyone who likes Firefly. Really skillfully tells you just enough about each crew member to make you care about them and their experiences, and it's just a lovely book all round.

    Make sure you check out the sequels to Angry Planet. They're only tangentialy related, but flesh out Chambers' universe a lot. The second book in particular (A Closed and Common Orbit) is fantastic.

    AAIII! Kruppe is back! If your pastries are under lock and key or otherwise inaccessible Kruppe's disappointment will be intolerable (to Kruppe)!

    I've been moving slowly through it, not quite finished. My schedule is terrible this semester, but I should finish this week. I'll let you know when, but I have been enjoying it throughout.

    Haha, well I'm glad my Nthusiam got you back into it! I'll admit that I never went so far as to create my own levels and such, but I still loved the game. When I get a chance I'll check out your levels. How difficult would you say they are? Did you cram 40 laser enemies into one level? *shudder*

    Kruppe thanks you profusely for your kind words. If only Kruppe's rare gift was as useful as (say) a hogs talent for sniffing out and locating rare truffles.
    Kruppe is also delighted to inform you that he too resides in the land of 10,000 lakes. Stillwater, to be precise.
    Yet more serendipitous news: Good Kruppe is also a child of October. The 23rd day of that delicious m
