Sort of How I Spent My Summer

It turned out that I got quite a bit read this summer. John Scalzi’s The Last Colony, two of Stross’s Laundry Files books, a manual on the Steampunk movement, re-read The Magicians, Daniel Abraham’s splendid closer to the Dagger and Coin series, and a re-read of Roger Zelazny’s Lord of Light (that’s practically an annual thing). 93 more words

The King's Blood (Dagger and Coin #2)

In The King’s Blood, upheavals occur, characters come into their own (for good or ill), and the shape of the overarching conflict begins to emerge. And it is an ideological one that should be familiar to students of TOK. 632 more words

Fiction

The Dragon's Path (Dagger and Coin #1)

The Dragon’s Path is an understated but competent start to a fantasy saga that offers, for the genre, an unusual degree of psychological realism.

Daniel Abraham is, of course, one half of the James Corey writing duo that came up with the vaunted Expanse series. 744 more words

The Churn by James S A Corey

I’m about to catch up with The Expanse novels so warmed myself up with another one of the novellas.  This one is easily the most grounded and least ‘sci-fi’ so far. 307 more words

Work in Progress

Time for something less depressing.  This is an image I am currently working on.  The planet in the foreground is meant to be Venus and is part of a pivotal scene at the end of Leviathan Wakes by James S. 41 more words

The Spider's War by Daniel Abraham

The Spider’s War is a very interesting end to a strong series which plays out its final conflicts in a manner I think little could expect. 534 more words
