Lacking Natural Simplicity

Random musings on books, code, and tabletop games.

Recent Reading

  • Blue Moon, by Laurell K. Hamilton; Ace, November 1998. Eighth in the series.

  • Obsidian Butterfly, by Laurell K. Hamilton; Ace, October 2000. Ninth in the series. We find out a lot more about Edward.

  • Narcissus in Chains, by Laurell K. Hamilton; Jove, October 2002.

  • Dead to the World, by Charlaine Harris; Ace, May 2004. These are not as intense as Hamilton's Anita Blake books, but I enjoy the small-town aspect of Harris's books.

  • Gardens of the Moon: Volume One of the Malazan Book of the Fallen, by Steven Erikson; Tor, June 2004. Interesting high magic world with an expanding empire. Not much like Glen Cook. This first book has a military organization in one of its main threads, and a good deal of gritty details, but it also has an much higher level of magic.

  • In the Kingdom of the Mists, by Jane Jakeman; Berkeley Prime Crime, March 2004. Quirky thriller with Monet as a peripheral but important character. Good.

  • Redwall, by Brian Jacques; narrated by Ron Keith; Recorded Books, 1995. Well read by Keith, but something about it was annoying. I suspect I'd have liked it better if I was 12, which is probably a failing on my part.
