Day 84. 46 pages, 19,379 words.
Well this weekend has been a comedy of disasters. Stomach almost killing me on Friday and keeping me home from both intended parties. Wump getting bitten (not badly, but traumatically) by the neighbours’ dog on Saturday. Ah well.
Cleaning the house in preparation for the arrival of my parents tomorrow afternoon. I am pre-writing this, but apparently Mr. BRKN is taking Wump and Toop to the aquarium for the day, just for fun.
Follow-up: They took the girls to some farmy, villagey thing in Porvoo, but yes. Close enough.
So I’ll be clearing the bar and making sure the wreckage that is my home office does not look like escaping any time soon.
I finished Lucas Thorn’s latest book and dropped him a review I was rather pleased with. Check out the full version here. And check the series out, it’s really very enjoyable and just keeps getting more interesting.
Another greatly enjoyable swordpunk knifeslinger spaghetti fantasy from Lucas Thorn.
A truly exciting and alien-yet-familiar reimagining of the high fantasy city here, where “volcanoes” replace skyscrapers and the nobles-and-guilds politics is as brutal as anything that happens in the Deadlands – or under them.
Of course, we’re left with questions as always. What is the Warp? How far back do the histories of the Gods go? What is happening to this world, and what has happened to it in the past? Where does Nysta fit into it? How many more awful pop-culture-reference puns will I have to endure before the end?
WHEN WILL THORN FINISH THE NEXT BOOK?
Well done and get back to work, Penhand.
– A lazy excerpt
That’s all for today. By which I mean Friday. Back to work.
