2018 Site Update

A new year means a new look. I felt that it was time for a fresh look that can complement what I want to achieve for the blog outside of making more time to write about one of the things I like to do most; reading. In order to do that it called for something…

Book Update: The Raid

One of the things we imagine often is what the world would be like in the future whether it is space travel, dystopian worlds and/or the zombie infested post-apocalypse. personally, I have thought about both and usually it just ends up very strange which is why I’ll likely never write stories about zombies. They would…

Book Update: Abyss

I am slowly making my way through the extended universe of Star Wars. So far it has been a fun ride within the Fate of the Jedi series. Abyss by Troy Denning was a good read even though in general it was a little bit slower action wise than book two, Omen, but you get…

A New Year of Books

As always a new year of books to read and a new challenge to meet makes for what could be a dull year of mostly work far more interesting. For the year of 2018 the goal is to read at least sixty books. For me that feels ambitious, but doable even having to work six…

A Long Time Coming

Since the last post made here work has sort of taken over everything in sight. Even with weekly shift changes I have actually managed to fit some reading time into these six-day work week. The trouble was more of having time to sit down and write. For those of you that have typed out papers…

Book Update: Farside

I read this book after chatting with a co-worker of mine whom mentioned having liked the author Ben Bova. Upon picking up Farside I wasn’t aware until most of the way through it that it was part of a larger series called The Grand Tour. Despite this book being the¬†ninth¬†book in the series it didn’t…

Book Update BZRK Origins

I have to admit I was drawn into reading this book mostly due to its unusual title. I had to check it out and see what it was about. I had heard of the author Michael Grant and his series called Gone even though I hadn’t pulled the trigger and read any of the books….

Book Update: Mass Effect: Revelation

One of the things I have become more aware of literary speaking is video game tie-in novels. Sure we all know that the big ones all belong to the big kid on the block; D&D’s Neverwinter. I tied to read those having enjoyed novels by Salvatore in the past, but it just wasn’t my cup…

March Wrap Up

The month of March didn’t yield as much time to read as some of the last few month including the end of 2016. I had hoped to add a couple more books to last month’s list of books read, but I’m still pleased to be on track to make this year’s reading challenge. The more…

Book Update – Re/Genesis

Here were another week gone by and heading into another month. I didn’t get nearly as much reading in last month as I had hoped to, but the books and short stories that I did get through were fun. This was the final short story by G.S. Jennsen related to which I didn’t realize until…
