The Dragon Arcana by Pierre Pevel - the third book in his The Cardinal's Blades trilogy.

After that, I'll hopefully have gotten part three of Django Wexler's The Shadow Campaigns - The Price of Valour (with a 'u' in Valour since I ordered the British edition).

So plenty of magic and musketry in my future.

You shouldn't raid France... You'll end with much too much wine..

I'll just sell the excess to the Chinese. They're mad for a good French wine.

Looks more like Finnish than German...

Not enough vowels. Except for "kü,iüöii" (I wonder what sound the comma is meant to represent.)

Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children's letters, sometimes very hastily, but this one I lingered over.

I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, "Dear Jim: I loved your card." Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, "Jim loved your card so much he ate it."
That to me was one of the highest compliments I've ever received. He didn't care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.

But the bit that really annoys me is that I can't even read the main messageboard page on the phone any longer. I can get into the subforums alright, but well - it's annoying.

And I've lost all my clothes!

Well, my phone isn't even close. And it's been acting buggy since I got it (turning itself off for no apparent reason, and so on), so this might just be the push to get me a new one.

Gah! I can't post with the phone any longer. :(

1300 Hours

Thursday 23 November, 2062
Bloor Street
Toronto, Ontario

I unlock the door to Gabe’s apartment and walk inside. There’s no sign at first that anybody’s home, but the place doesn’t have that vacant feeling, either. Genie’s in school and Leah’s still at the hospital. I’m playing hooky from the lab, halfway hoping to collect Gabe here, eat something, and head over to the National Defence Medical Center and visit the kid. We haven’t gotten to spend any time alone since Friday night, and it would be nice to talk along the way. Knowing Gabe, he’s got a whole universe of silent worry twisting away inside him.

Hell, I brought lunch. We’re going to talk whether he wants to or not. Or so I’m thinking as I lock the door quietly and head for the kitchen. Three steps in I hear voices, low murmuring and a giggle; I pause in the archway, mouth open to announce myself, and my face goes hot and my voice dies in my throat.

The good news is Ellie doesn’t see me standing there like a hooked fish, bag of turkey sandwiches clutched in my right hand. Her eyes are closed, her hand knotted in Gabe’s hair; he presses her back against the sink, and I know from very personal experience and the high color in her cheeks exactly what he’s whispering against her ear, exactly how his hand feels moving against her back, under her sweater. The memory makes me shiver and swallow once, hard.
Dirty, dirty old man.

They don’t exactly teach you how to deal with this sort of thing in catechism. I suppose I could just back out of the kitchen and go slam the front door to give them some polite warning, but where’s the fun in that? Oh, bad Jenny.

Very bad Jenny indeed. Elspeth’s in the middle of a quiet, enthusiastic little whimper when I walk past them, open the refrigerator, and tuck the sandwiches inside. Gabe jumps at the sound of the opening door, turning toward me as Elspeth clears her throat and smooths her sweater down over her hips. I don’t look up, hiding my face until I have the grin bitten down. I find a beer on the bottom shelf and stand up. Gabe puts a hand on my shoulder. “Jenny—”

Maybe I’m being too mean?

There’s unreasonable jealousy, after all, and then there’s targets of opportunity. “I brought lunch,” I say, fine carbonation misting the air as I open the beer. “I’ll be in the living room when you two are ready to eat. Food, I mean. And we’ll go see Leah once Genie gets home.”

Elspeth’s grinning, one hand over her mouth. But Gabe looks like I shot him between the eyes with a tranquilizer dart, so I make sure to squeeze his ass with my steel hand on my way back out to the living room.

What the hell. The Canucks are playing. I’m sure I can keep myself entertained for an hour or two. And oh, we are so going to break that boy.

The captain clears her throat, eventually, and I peel myself away from my family and lug the carrier over. “Captain Wainwright.” Sniffle. Merci à Dieu, I’m turning into a cry-baby. “May I request your permission to bring this animal aboard?” I hold the carrier up so she and Boris can see eye to eye, and he does me proud by squinching golden eyes at her and emitting a rumbling purr like a steam boiler.

She studies him for a moment, and sighs. “House-broken?”

“More or less.”

She chuckles. “Long tradition of ship’s cats in the navy.”

“This is the air force, Captain.”

“I won’t tell him if you don’t.”

In case it's a fight, will you give enough forewarning that I'll have time to prepare the jello-pool?

On purpose - and I mentioned the typewriter because, yes, he couldn't just make a spellcheck file with just Shakespearian words in it.

(Although I think it is late enough in his career that he could've used an early PC if he'd wanted to.)

And, of course, Bear is one of those SFF writers who knows to give proper attention to style, so the prose is a delight (the bilingual bits again!).

Booktip for any of the Sci-Fi fans here: If you haven't read Elizabeth Bear's Jenny Casey trilogy (Hammered, Scardown, and Worldwired) already - do so.

Lovely mix of near-future SF concepts like nanites, self-aware AI, cybernetics, and global climate change, with more out there stuff like starships, (so far unrevealed) aliens, and more down-to-earth stuff like military-corporate-government symbioses, and gang warfare.

And if you're like me and tend to think in two or more language, it's kinda nice to read about characters who does that too (Jenny Casey is a Quebecqois Mohawk who lives in Hartford, Connecticut at the start of the book).

When writing his novel about William Shakespeare, Nothing Like the Sun, Anthony Burgess only used words that appear in texts written by Shakespeare - and he did it on a typewriter.

Kinda wonder if the whole Taylor Swift vs Apple thing shouldn't go here. Pay the workers a fair wage and all that. Of course, I'm more of a reformist socialist. :p

Anonymous asked: Has Locke ever made bacon pancakes?

Therin culture has nothing resembling our pancakes with syrup, because I am a cruel god. Cruel, cruel, cruel, cruel god. Like seriously, WTF is wrong with me.

EDIT: THEY HAVE CREPES. Please stop picketing outside my house! They’d have stuff like rosewater syrup, too. So technically something semi-resembling bacon pancakes could be constructed, though it’s not yet a common thing. AM I NOT MERCIFUL? NOW GO BEFORE MORE CHARACTERS DIE.

Um, it won't spread to anyone else, though. Ennui and all...

It would be a pretty boring movie.

Maybe we could get Michael Bay to direct it, so there'd be some explosions.

It'd be like a cosy murder mystery, only with zombie philosophers instead of English vicars.

And I'm plumping for François Ozon for director and Jean Reno or Kristen Scott Thomas as the lead.

Will this mean explosions or will it mean no explosions?

'Cause I want exploding undead Existentialists. And a 50 foot high robotic Jean Paul Sartre who turns into a smaller Jean Paul Sartre with wheels for disguisement. And Megan Fox's bum. And a sandwich.

The sandwich I can do; the rest will have to remain nothing more than a beautiful dream :(

How about they explode the Eiffel Tower. A 25-foot Bernard-Henri Lévy that turns into a 1-foot tall Michel Hollebecque, Simone de Beauvoir's bum, and a baguette?

And, of course, in the end they defeat the zombies by making the Statue of Liberty walk all over them. (That's not been done before, right? Right?)

Maybe it’s because it’s a little early yet on people receiving their minis and we will get more activity. However, if not, then yes, it’s a little sad that the activity (interest?) for PFB has waned.

Yep, a little early. Despite having "ship as soon as available" checked, my case was only shipped last week. It also doesn't help that I am in Canada, so I'm expecting mine in about 4 weeks. *sighs*

I really wish they would start shipping the international packages early.

I understand why they don't, but as a Swede, I can say that I sure wouldn't complain if they did - but hey, at least we get the stuff quicker than the ANZies seem to.

"Turtleneck wearing b++#@es."

...and now I want a zombie movie where the outbreak starts in a group of Parisian intellectuals...

Extra hour of work today = an hour of running up and down stairs. Been a while since I did that, so my calves will be sore tomorrow.

I'd rather say that it's time to stop telling girls and women they can't be the hero (and in all honesty, I also think we're doing much better at that than we did when I was a kid during the 80:s). Telling men and boys to be heroic is not something I have a problem with - as long as we also teach them not to horn in on somebody else's heroic journey, and that sometimes it's okay if you're the one being rescued.

The character Lisbeth Salander from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, or Män Som Hatar Kvinnor (Men who Hate Women) in Swedish, was inspired by Pippi Longstocking.

Hopefully, more coherent too.
Depends. Kidlet was playing that DLC yesterday really did look like a Michael Bay movie....his play style is... Well, he's eleven, so, yeah......

So about equally cohererent, but less gratuitous ass-shots?

I was mainly referring to the concluding tweet: "It's going quite bad for the homophobes right now."
