Continuity: Both uses and discards varying elements of Lungbarrow. Should stand alone, though; don't be put off if you haven't read it.

Even more than there should have been someone to welcome them into the world, there should be someone here. A technician, a carer – anybody. )

charamei: Completely mad (DW10: Completely Mad)
"Just come out so we can talk... or sing about it."

Oh, Glee. Where would we be without you?

Meanwhile, in the land of fiction that at least takes a stab at being serious, I've just finished Sacrifice, the second part of Eric Shanower's Age of Bronze series. My review of the first, A Thousand Ships, can be found here.

Read more... )

I hope that the character designs are better differentiated by the time we reach the really big battle scenes, but even if they're not, the character parts of the plot - the majority - are more than worth the irritation of trying to tell Priam's eighty billion identical sons apart. This series just keeps getting better and better.
charamei: Geek (DW10: Geek)
I just opened Firefox, typed 'ch' into the address bar and hit the down arrow once to get my Dreamwidth URL up, appended '/update' to the URL and started typing. I am listening to Die Fledermaus (again) on Rhythmbox. If I feel like it, I can watch a DVD in a minute.

The impressive bit? Three hours ago, this computer was running a different operating system. And so was my laptop.

Ubuntu: Karmic to Lucid in an hour and a half. )

Yeah, that's it. I'm out of things to say about Lucid Lynx, except that I'm very glad I switched from Karmic and very happy with it so far.

And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go and play with Nautilus some more.
charamei: Books. Best weapons in the world. (DW10: Books)
Anyone who reads these things is probably aware that I've been grousing for a while about my inability to find Young Bond 5: By Royal Command on the shelves in my favourite bookshop, and that this is directly related to the absurd amount of Doctor Who I've been reading lately (because those books are kept directly above Young Bond on the shelves). Well, I still have a backlog of Who - I always have a backlog of Who - but guess what WH Smith's finally restocked a couple of weeks ago?

For King and country! )

If you only read one Young Bond, definitely make it this one. Although it reuses villains, it doesn't require too much foreknowledge of past events, and in terms of historical context, sheer complexity of plot and lack of Higson's more irritating traits as a writer, it's by far the best. Honestly, though, I would recommend the entire series. Except Blood Fever.

And, oh, did I mention that I have a backlog of Doctor Who? :p

Judgement of the Judoon (Tenth Doctor Adventures, Colin Brake)
'That wall-bursting thing could become a nasty habit.' - 'That could make me a crashing bore.' )

Not a fantastic book by any means, but it's saved from being utterly boring by a brilliant idea for a companion, executed decently.

I also got hold of one of the first Eleven books, Night of the Humans. I haven't read it yet - I'm working through the entirety of Kelley Armstrong's Darkest Power trilogy at the moment - but I was struck by how thin it is, even with the new larger page size. I did a wordcount, and it looks like the new books are 5,000 words shorter than the old ones: a Tenth Doctor book routinely counts to around 60k, whereas this one's only 55k. Easier to do for NaNo, I suppose, but I can't say I'm terribly in favour of the change. Wasn't 60k short enough?

Apologies to my circle: I'm about to spam y'all with the ginormous backlog of reviews and 3W4DW stuff that I haven't had time to post this week.

A couple of years ago, I wrote Stasis, a one-off original thingamijig designed simply to free my brain from a creative rut.

I kind of liked the world, but it clearly needed more time to mature. And then a month or so ago, I was driving along the M5 with my mother and there was a tree...

I don't know if I'll ever turn this world into anything longer than disconnected oneshots, but I do like it. Maybe one day.

For now, this.
