    Last night I finally finished Caitlin R. Kiernan's Dear Sweet Filthy World collection of short stories, read over the course of 2 years (though I just read the last 40% in 5 days.) Beautifully written stuff, dark and gothic, but also often highly disturbing. Recommended, but definitely not for everyone!

    Last night I finished Premee Mohamad's A Broken Darkness, sequel to her Beneath the Rising. The craziness from the first book is cranked up well past 11, though I think the relationship between the two main characters (quite changed since the first) is still the book's strongest quality. Mohamed definitely doesn't shy away from shaking up her characters' world, and the ending to this one was both totally abrupt and also a bit confusing. It almost works as a series ending (leaving sooo much unexplained) but thinking about now, it's obviously just a cliffhanger for the presumed third book. I'm definitely on board.

    Before that, I read through the entirety of IDW's first 13-year Transformers comics continuity for the first time, much (at least half) of which I'd never read before, including a bunch of the earlier stuff, as well as the big Unicron literally-universe-ending finale. I also read all the Hasbro-verse spinoffs that I owned (almost of all of which were crossover material, anyway--I did not read any of the early IDW G.I. Joe stuff, retroactively part of the Hasbroverse, that I also own a bunch of.) About 450+ issues altogether. Really great stuff. As much as I'm enjoying the current TF reboot under Brian Ruckley, I really miss the James Roberts/John Barber duo that shepherded the second half of the first run.

    OK I reached the end of Lord Foul's Bane and... well, that certainly dented my opinion a little bit. Jeez. I'll probably still check out the next one, mind.

    I've always considered LFB one of the weakest of the Covenant books. Fortunately, Donaldson doesn't much like to do the same thing twice, so each book (and each trilogy) does something new and surprising. Gah, now I really want to read the whole series again; I just love SRD's utility with language.

    Oh, and you should check out his Gap Cycle: grimdark sci-fi based on Wagnerian opera. It's pretty fantastic.

    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
