Lacking Natural Simplicity

Random musings on books, code, and tabletop games.

Recent Reading

  • Bite; Jove Books/The Berkley Publishing Group/Penguin Group (USA) Inc; January 2005.

    • “The Girl Who Was Infatuated with Death”, by Laurell K. Hamilton, copyright 2005.

    • “One Word Answer”, by Charlaine Harris, copyright 2005.

    • “Biting in Plain Sight”, by MaryJanice Davidson, copyright 2005. I've still not read a book by Davidson, just this story and another in the anthology Cravings, but they were ok.

    • “Galahad”, by Angela Knight, copyright 2005 by Julie Woodcock. Not to my taste.

    • “Blood Lust”, by Vickie Taylor, copyright 2005 by Vickie Spears. Also not really to my taste.

  • Dead to the World, by Charlaine Harris, copyright 2004 by Charlaine Harris Shulz; Ace Books/Berkley Publishing Group/Penguin Group (USA) Inc., May 2004. This, on the other hand, was very much to my taste.

  • Storm Front, by Jim Butcher; ROC/New American Library/Penguin Putnam Inc., April 2000. My copy is from the 7th printing. This is the 1st book in the series The Dresden Files, which looks like it ought to be entertaining; I somehow completely missed it the first time through, so now I'll have to try and find the rest.

  • Dead Witch Walking, by Kim Harrison; HarperTorch/HarperCollins, May 2004. My copy is from the 8th printing. Also good.

  • The Awakening, by L.A. Banks; copyright 2003 by Leslie Esdaile; St. Martin's Griffin, January 2004. This is the 2nd book of the Vampire Huntress series, and it's readable, but I'd put it a couple of ranks below Hamilton, Harris, Butcher, and Harrison. The first book is Minion.
