Busy at work, and apparently burnt out on civics/politics for the nonce. Here’s Amazon gee-gaws ordered just in the last few days:
- Johannes Cabal the Necromancer
- A Fire Upon The Deep (Zones of Thought)
- The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities: Exhibits, Oddities, Images, and Stories from Top Authors and Artists
- The Domino Men
- Historical Lovecraft: Tales of Horror Through Time
- Schoolhouse Rock! (Special 30th Anniversary Edition)
- L The Bible Repairman and Other Stories
- Last Call
- Expiration Date
- The Drawing of the Dark (Del Rey Impact)
Very Lovecraftian, eh? Six of these items I’ve had before, usually repeatedly. But they disappear. Fortunately, “that is not dead which I can eternal buy.”
Well timed burn out. I’m busy watching the Cardinals whoop up on all comers.
Guess I’m rooting for them, due to Pujols.

My Amazon list includes both Sisters of Battle novels, the latest Gaunt’s Ghosts, the latest Ciaphas Cain, the final part of the Salamander trilogy, the latest part of the Sano series by Laura Joh Rowland, Johnson’s “The Japanese Way of Justice: Prosecuting Crime in Japan (Studies on Law and Social Control)” and Oda’s “Japanese Law: Second Edition”.
Please tell me you’re studying Nipponese criminality in order to become a Caucasian supervillain. “The Uplands Ursine”…nah, your name already works fine.
Well, they’re actually required readings for a course.
Super villain. In any other country. I can’t be a super villain in the country that houses my niece, god-daughters and the woman I love. Though, should I ever have to kill someone for them it might be handy to know this stuff.

Yes. There are probably hundreds or thousands of filters and trapping points that have very elevated readings these days. Fortunately none will be life-threatening, away from Fukushima proper.
