Anticipating the release of the newest hardcopy collection, I've been plowing my way through the Girl Genius books again. Also currently making my way through the TV series The Expanse on Amazon and am considering checking out the books they're adapted from.

There's a book coming out this week called The Last House on Needless Street that I want to check out. Heard about it? Stephen King described it as Gone Girl meets Hill House. That description's a hooker right there.

Finished The Space Mavericks. Wow; that was bad. It just piles one new, ridiculous plot point on top of another till there's enough for it to be called a novel, & the writing's flat, with a lot of sentence fragments.

Started Swords Against Death by Fritz Leiber. Heard good things about Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, the book's characters, so I decided to try it.

I am a fan of Fritz Leiber. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
