An alright collection. The best story was probably “The Fire of Asshurbanipal”, but my personal favourite was “The Black Stone”. The rest didn’t floor me, but they were okay.

I’ve just read the first two books of N. K. Jemisin’s fantastic The Broken Earth trilogy. I was really bummed to learn that the film rights belong to TNT. A screen adaptation helmed by the right people could be world-shatteringly good, but I have serious doubts that TNT are the right people. I hope I’m wrong and it’s like AMC becoming legitimate overnight with Mad Men in 07 and Breaking Bad the next year, but my expectations are low. Anyway, this is supposed to be about the books. Go read them, they’re great.

I recently finished reading Shantaram … this novel made a huge impression on me with its sincerity and detailed description of all the details. I was very worried when the main character Lin got into another trouble (for example, when he was taken to prison and no one could help him) … well, I recommend to all fans of action!

Its title sounds raunchy, but it’s actually a LitRPG (or GameLit) from the perspective of a Mimic—a monster that disguises itself as a wooden chest. The woman on the cover gets eaten by the mimic near the start of the book. I’m enjoying it so far.

This thread seems to always get bumped when I’m reading N.K. Jemisin. I’m now reading the first part of her Dreamblood duology, called The Killing Moon. It’s a lot more formally straightforward than The Broken Earth was, so it might be a better entry point to her work if TBE seems a little far-out. It’s a fantasy based in an ancient Egyptian-inspired world, which is a refreshing angle after having read so much stuff set in versions of medieval Europe. It’s focused a lot more on political intrigue than the other series as well; if you’re a fan of the King’s Landing court stuff in ASoIaF, you should check this out.

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

How our team, The Astros (baseball), was put right again after years of neglect from a decades-long piece of shit owner. The team I’ve followed religiously since I was a child, through thick and thin.
