Speaking of reading...not that I was...I took a break from re-reading Stross' The Atrocity Archives (a fabulous book, by the way, eldritch occultism combined with spy/espionage and a little dark humor) to read The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Black Dossier, which I'd been meaning to pick up for a while and finally did last weekend. Pretty good, if a lot more text-filled than the first two LExG runs. Still, the sheer volume of notes and references to be found in it was staggering. Hell, i thought I caught a lot of the in-jokes and sneaky side-references, but I wasn't anywhere NEAR catching a fraction of them. To my credit, a lot of them were from before my time, but, damn, reading the extensive annotations made me go back and re-read it all twice more. Looking forward to LExG v3 in the near future, to say the least.

Now, I have dishes to do, exercise to catch up on, comics to categorize...I should eat something, I suppose...and I'd like to get a little bit of the City in before my Strike Force run tonight. Just not enough hours in the day, I'm tellin' ya....

I bet you got some pretty busy strike force and guild activities planned for the double xp extravaganza coming up.

Not as much as you'd think. I'll miss about half of it due to other obligations and plans, and what I do have planned will be partly dependent on whether or not other people are around. I'm not actually all that worked up about it. If I get a couple of my present "main" characters cranked up a little, all's well.

Have I recommended Stross' other works to you? If not, pick up Iron Sunrise. It's brilliant.

No, you haven't, but I was planning on it anyway. He's got a good style, I've enjoyed this book a couple times now, looking forward to more.
