To remember I: April 2010

This month I am restless, tired and distracted. I can't think about the things I SHOULD think about, work and "serious" things. I am flighty and in search of something new and unique.

SO maybe I'll write a little, maybe do some more reading. And in order to prevent me from losing track in my madness, I thought I'd wake this old blog up. Good morning, old blog!

Speaking of reading, I'm reading George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones. It's an interesting read, but I can't see the mad fan nerding out it apparently inspires (leading, of course, to things like Neil Gaiaman's admonition that Mr. Martin is no one's bitch, and the like. But as I just started, perhaps I'm just not deep enough.

I'm also well into Tim Powers' On Stranger Tides, which is Tim Powers writing about pirates, zombies, and voudou...ahhhh, Tim Powers. I love that guy. The Drawing of the Dark is still one of my favorite books. Seriously, how many books are there that conflate Arthurian legend and BEER!? ONE, that's how many.

GRRM's Song of Ice and Fire is quite unique in my (limited) fantasy reading. Keep going, it gets even more interesting after the first book.

The only negative is he takes a lifetime to complete books. The next one is years late!
