I’ve been reading a non-SF book, A Gentleman in Moscow, which is very good. Its a decades spanning story of a former count under house arrest in the Soviet Union. Luckily for the count, his house arrest takes place in the very fancy Hotel Metropole, where he’s able to craft a whole life for himself. The secondary cast

This my First Read Kindle book selection last month that I’m reading now. It’s about a Danish platoon doing a rotation in Afghanistan and I assumed it would be a straightforward story about soldiers dealing with the grey areas of war. But about a third of the way through there’s a shocking event - and I mean Red

Finished this morning. It was pretty good. I am going to read the sequels - a novella and a novel - next.

I like alternate history - I have the show (not watched it yet) and stumbled over this in my favourite second hand book market in town. I had no idea it’s based on a book, so I’ll read it first.

Charlaine Harris has gone postapocalyptic, and I’m intrigued.

The first 4 stories have been very good.  If you like her stuff, you will like this.

This week I’m listening to the audio book of Magic for Liars. Ivy Gamble is barely making a living working as a PI in Oakland, when she gets offered the chance to work a really big case. A teacher died under mysterious circumstances and the school headmaster is convinced it was murder. The twist is that it didn’t

The third in the trilogy. I’m almost halfway through and I’m kind of wishing I had read them all closer together as I’m struggling to remember the finer details of what happened two books ago.

Starting up Nemesis Games from the Expanse series. After that I found a Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman for a few books a garage sale so that’s next on the list.

Abaddon’s Gate, book three of the The Expanse. Again, I really love the amount of thought the writers put into the different cultures in the books. Also, the characters who are supposed to be sensible people generally act sensibly. The plot moves right along, and for the most part they don’t draw things out by having

2/3 done and I know what it is now. It’s a creation myth. Maybe, sorta, Paradise Lost, which is one of those books that I’ve never read, but know what it is about. But really more like The Bible. Since it is a sequel to REAMDE, he could have named it BILBE or something and worked that into an acronym. Then he could

Working on the second volume of the voluminous Laundry Files Series by Charlie Stross. Dry humor, James Bond like adventure, and Chthulu Mythos, what’s not to like?
