    I read hands of the emperor after recommendations on here. How a book about middle aged men doing bureaucracy with no action, romance or indeed any real peril, can be quite so riveting I can't quite figure out but I loved it.


    Right? I couldn’t put it down. Glad you found it to be the same.

    This is one of those weeks where you think “I want a bigger bench”.

    Yeah, that was a huge week. Our format this year promotes some higher scores, so here’s hoping you get another (just if you aren’t playing me!).

    Nope. I just finished a follow-up book and apparently there are several more books planned to follow the same characters.

    Someone described Hands of the Emperor as competency porn, and I think that fits pretty well. Very competent people doing very competent things. I liked it a great deal, there was something refreshing about a story where no one is evil, but there is plenty of conflict all the same.

    I would recommend reading The Tower at the End of the World first if you're able though, it's a short story taking place at some point before Hands of the Emperor.


    I think competency porn is a great description for the half of the book dealing with affairs of state and politics. These are middle aged characters who are well established in their roles and are effectively governing the world.

    I’ll check out that short story. Thanks.
