Reading

So, until the last couple of days it had been awhile since I’d posted anything.  Sorry about that, but in May of ’14, I did say that I was going to be cutting back on blogging and doing more reading.

Boy howdy.

Just blew through the entire (so far) 10-book Destroyermen series by Taylor Anderson.  Took 12 days.  Wow.  That’s good stuff.  It’s alternate-universe/military Sci-Fi fantasy, (and perhaps a bit light on logistics,) but really very well done.  Since one of my favorite other series is Steve Stirling / David Drake’s Raj Whitehall series, (the first five books anyway), hopefully that’s high praise.

And I just now finished re-reading Andy Weir’s The Martian, which was every bit as good the second time around.  Can’t wait to see the movie.  Looks like they stuck pretty close to the actual story.  Well, they at least used a few of the words from the book, anyway.

I hope Andy Weir’s check was BIG.
