  1. In Topic: Warhammer Books

    Humble Bundle has a Warhammer bundle at least once or twice a year. Over the past couple of years, I've grabbed the first 15 Horus Heresy books, plus 3 later ones, and the first 6 Primarchs books, not to mention a ton of short stories and non-HH stuff.

    Heck, there's one going on right now: https://www.humblebu...k-library-books

    I understand that perspective. I ended up really really enjoying it and the next book, This Book Is Full Of Spiders. Somehow the one upping of weirdness gets tolerable when Amy is involved heavily.

    I haven't read the third book yet.

    Spiders is a much more coherent story than JDatE, but it loses a lot of the madcap zaniness that made the first book so charming.

    Finished Silvia Moreno-Garcia's Untamed Shore the other night. A great thriller that feels like I'm doing it a disservice by calling it "a thriller". Really good book.

    Now I'm reading a collection of her older short stories called Love and Other Poisons (love that title.) I'm actually a little disappointed so far, given how much I've loved everything else she's written. I guess it should be expected her older stories are rougher, and I'm only like two stories in, so I'm still optimistic.
  4. In Topic: Claire North ded thread

    I blitzed through the last Gameshouse story laaate last night. Absolutely fantastic, though I do wish the last two stories weren't so similar in concept
    Spoiler
    The second story might be my favorite of the three.

    I've only got End Of Days left, so I might just have to read that next.
  5. In Topic: 2020 FAVOURITE BOOKS AND COMICS OF THE YEAR

    18 December 2020 - 09:37 PM

    In 2020 I did the same thing as in 2019, which was: get tired of books in the spring, then read tons of comics until the fall, when I'd suddenly get back into books again. This year I read 5 books prior to early March (God, that feels like years ago) and then read a Claire North book in June, before getting back on the wagon in September and reading 9 more books. I also read, um... 1,416 comic issues this year holy crap (!)(?)

    TOP 5 FAVORITE BOOKS OF 2020 REALIZING I ONLY READ 15 BUT WHATEVER:
    Honorable Mention: Beneath the Rising by Premee Mohamed - Felt this one needed a shoutout. A fun Lovecraftian adventure where the friendship between the main characters is the star.
    5. Harrow the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir - Tons of fun. Would have made way more sense if I reread Gideon first, though.
    4. The Pursuit of William Abbey by Claire North - Probably underrated in this list. The gimmick behind the story is kinda clunky, but what North does with it is beautiful.
    3. Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia - A solid gothic horror novel from a great author.
    2. Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins-Reid - Literally could not put this one down. Read it over two veeeery late nights/mornings.
    1. The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon - I think Abyss hated this one, but man did I adore it. Everything I could possibly want in a standalone epic fantasy doorstopper, with the exception of maybe a little more climactic of an ending.

    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
