    Watching s7 now, tho HBO has added PROJECT DAWN and s7 got bumped up to s8.
    Premiere was flawless. STRIKEBACK fun, solid action, excellent banter and conflict. And holy fuck, Mac, Novic, and Coltane are all seriously in jeopardy here. The natural fallout of things in ep 1 could reasonably kill any or all of them any time.

    This cast has really gelled... arguably better than the previous version.

    Started All Systems Red, the first book in the Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells.

    So far it's fun and light. It's very barebones, no real world building or attempt at creating a setting directly. It's just days in the life of a murderbot on a research mission that's turning to shit.

    I like the Murderbot. It's wonderfully introverted and cynical. I think it's my spirit animal.


    I've got the first four queued up on my kindle for future devouring. Glad to hear it's good and fun.

    Finished Murderbot 1

    Cool little story though I don't really see why this is noteworthy enough to win awards.

    Liked the ending. Felt like the right kind of choice for Murderbot.

    Ordered book 2 and 3 from Libby. There's a three week wait unfortunately.


    They get better, and I think are best read close together. 1 was good enough to get me to 2, which was better. By 3 i was hooked and the end of 4 is awesome. 5 couldn't get here soon enough and was a full novel. I was a little sceptical whether the Murderbot format, so to speak, would work in longer form... it did. What might have been considered padding works really well specifically because of Murderbot's perspective.

    I can see Martha Wellshas written a lot of stuff. I got the first 3 books in "The Books of Raksura" series she wrote from an older Humble Bundle.

    Anyone read them? First one's called the Cloud Roads. Sound sort of YA.

    They're not young adult, but the conflicts and resolutions are much more like CJ Cherryh's Foreigner series than an action series. I like them quite a bit and Wells as an author too.

    I've not read Raskura yet coz they're pretty expensive on Kobo though eventually I'll have to take the plunge. Also the final Ile-Rien trilogy is unavailable in ebook which is infuriating.

    But Wells is a great author. Read I think all of her standalones and the earlier Ile-Rien books.


    Good to know. I haven't quite decided to get her fantasy books but am likely to.

    So they don't need a mask, but still need 17 assault rifles. Fascinating how fickle their god's protection is.

    Oh shit, they just introduced the Battle Android Troopers! I loved those BAT robots.

    And Sgt Slaughter is kicking their ass!


    So very did not age well.
    Cold Slither remains a rock n roll epic however.

    Unbound Worlds now redirects to the PRH website, so that Top 100 fantasy link no longer works. Here's a very similar one though: https://reedsy.com/discovery/blog/best-fantasy-series

    Because some mobile browsers don't resize and it makes the thread unreadable.

    Just out of curiosity, why is it necessary to spoiler big pics on this forum? They go off the page and don't cause the text to unwrap, and they get resized in mobile browsers. I don't mind doing it; just asking.

    There is a word to describe that pic, I just found one in the depths of my convulsing brain. It's DISTURBING but in a funny way.

    If you're keeping score, I think my conversation (in a WoT thread, I think) with that one noob-troll about how to get banned from Malazan is worth a few. (i.e. "I recommend telling Malaclypse he's a douchebag.")

    When the new order rises, lazy posters will be among the first to be purged.

    Good call with the spoilers tags. I didn't want to add them because it makes it extra work to read posts :D
