Lacking Natural Simplicity

Random musings on books, code, and tabletop games.

Recent Reading

  • The Chaos Balance, by L.E. Modesitt, Jr.; Tor/Tom Doherty Associates, Inc., September, 1997. More information about the earlier years of the World of Recluce. Enjoyable alternative to the tide of psuedo-Tolkien fantasy.

  • The Deep Blue Good-By, by John D. MacDonald (copyright 1964?); read by Michael Prichard; Books on Tape, 1983. This is the first Travis McGee book. I don't know whether I have read any of his other Travis McGee books (I probably have, and if my library wasn't mostly in boxes I'd probably have a chance of telling), but I have read The Girl, the Gold Watch, and Everything. I think he wrote some other science fiction, as well. In any case, I enjoyed this one; definitely a product of the times, but a good story. Prichard's reading was good; his particular reading voice seems well suited for this sort of book.
