A beta reader maybe

The script could probably also use an editor since I do plan on publicly releasing it to make my story accessible to the blind.

Dave is a brilliant editor, should you need one.

All book-talk is accepted here, Treppa!

I'm still reading "Wolf Hall" by Hilary Mantel. It's taking me a super-long time because of her writing style and the fact that people have first names that are indistinguishable (e.g. Thomas), family names, and exchangeable titles (e.g. master secretary). But I'm in the last section now, so I feel I'm getting a better grip on things.

I had that same problem with Wuthering Heights. I had to make a family tree to distinguish all the Catherines and Earnshaws.

Bon bons > bon mots.

Finished Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour Bookstore and am not sure what to think, really. I'm trying to find something insightful to say about it because it's a book club read and I'm afraid to go there without something for show and tell. At the same time, I'm finding books that integrate a lot of technology talk to be rather dull and mundane. Maybe it's fascinating to non-techies.... naaaaah. Probably not.

Started The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society for October's book club read. So far, it's entirely in letter format and that is getting old fast.

Got a recommendation out of the blue for Ancillary Justice. Different board. Wasn't even talking books. Guy just PMed me because he thought I'd like the second book in the trilogy. Of course you have to read the first before that.

So far the military scifi aspect isn't utterly alienating, which is nice. Quite like the protagonist.

I actually quite liked both of them. The second a little more than the first, which is apparently uncommon.

I found that the whole genderless SJW thing that had everyone up in arms is far less emphasized than rumour had it.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm sick unto death of one aspect of a book (politician, event, article) being blown all out of proportion and being made the entire story by the Highly Offended Few. Honestly. Can't we take a subtle, nuanced look at the world? Between the blowup about the genderless narration of the Ancillary books and the ruckus about Atticus Finch's paternalistic attitude towards blacks in Watchman, I'm wondering if anybody bothers to, you know, read the actual books and look more than skin deep.

This is probably non-topical for the What Are You Reading Now thread. I blame scotch and the fact that this is Colorado. I make no apologies! Apologies be damned!

It's one of those shows that just keeps getting better with each episode. You have to watch the episodes in order, no jumping around, as they keep peeling away the layers.

Kinda tough to get into another show. I fell in love with Almost Human, and it's gone now. What's to stop Mr. Robot from the same fate?

I've got Name of the Wind queued up on my library list.

A lot of books 'reviewed' here sound good, but the library doesn't have 'em. It makes me sad. In fact, I tried to find a single noir book in our library system, and there wasn't one to be had. No Hammett!

Spoiler:

Of course, I only wanted the noir books to pick up the writing style. I think the market is ripe for modern noir.

Finished The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro at around 5:30 a.m. today. It's an intriguing little story set in immediately-post-Arthurian Britain and features some Round Table characters as well as new folks. The setting is as much a character as the people and monsters who inhabit it, bringing to mind some of the most barren, windswept scenes from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Unlike Grail, there's not a hint of comedy as the story slowly unwinds through the minds of several characters: Axl, an elderly man; Edwin, a young Saxon boy; Gawaine, elderly knight and companion of Arthur; Wistan, the Saxon warrior; and a few mysterious figures. The plot and exposition are as full of mists and confusion as the primitive landscape, though all is clear by the end.

I love a book that keeps me guessing and doesn't have heroes and villains. This one kept me reading to see what would unfold next, what truth would be revealed, what character exposed to scrutiny and unflinching examination. It started a bit slowly and the read was as much of a journey as that taken by any character, but the revelations at the end are well worth the trip. Fascinating, teasing, mysterious, enigmatic: this is not a feel-good book, but it's rewarding.

It sounds like there's been quite a long war, so my cleric serves Dol Dorn. She's human.

With a long war over just as she was able to get in on the action and try to help, she's probably feeling like the rug has been pulled out from under her. House and home were not on her list of aspirations, so returning to Haltwhistle is almost like going to prison - not really anything to do. She might try to supplement the town guard, though there are doubtless tons of vets who can do that as well if not better.

Have our guys been kicking around here for a couple of years now, or has the return been fairly recent?

Dedicated Voter Season 9, Star Voter Season 9

I have two broken-soldier character concepts in mind, both young (thus low-level) war vets.

One: The low-level fighter who was assigned to fill an open slot in a veteran's unit but was often relegated to messenger service during the war, since her skills were not up to par with those of the unit. During one such run back to the field command post, her unit was wiped out to the last man, leaving her with massive survivor's guilt.

Two: Cleric assigned to medical corps who was distressed by not being powerful enough to heal everyone.

[As a frequent GM, I often GMPC a clerical character, but I do really like them as a player. A lot of players don't want the healing role, but I'm perfectly willing if the party would like a primary healer.]

In the process of physically separating from my boyfriend of a decade, so stuff is kind of busy and unkempt right now. We should get things settled this week, so hopefully Friday/Saturday I'll toss something together.

Woo-hoo, good to see another TT game in the making!

Is this Eberron Wiki the best one to use for those of us without source books? Breland: humans and gnomes and half-elves, oh my!

Will noodle on players. DSX and I play with a fairly regular group, but we're all in a lot of games together. They may not want to hang around us quite so much, creepy-uncle style.

I'm very curious about that one, but I feel like I'm going to have to wait a year or two for the hubbub to die down before I can give the book an unbiased reading. If I hear one more NPR puff piece about how it's just the worst thing ever that Atticus Finch supported segregation later in life after everything that's gone in South Carolina this summer, I'm just gonna start punching white people, and that's coming from a white guy.

I have no problem believing this is a first novel. Its dialog-heavy exposition is the mark of an untried author. But there is some worth to it: Mockingbird's origin can be teased out of Watchman, and those who complain about the "racism of Atticus Finch" are really missing the point of the book. It's a serious discussion of a knotty problem set within the story of the fall of a god; youthful idealism slams up against harsh reality. The message at the end, though, is a good one. The only way for society to change is for those who don't like it as it is to live within it and work for that change. Props to Lee for an unflinching look at both her own people's inherent racism and the naivete of those who don't want to recognize it.

Why do low battery alarms always start chirping at 3 a.m.? And why do they chirp once every 10 minutes so you absolutely cannot find what's making that maddening noise?

I'm planning a point buy, but if we're allowed to opt for that if our rolls suck, lemme try rolling:

4d6 - 2 ⇒ (2, 3, 4, 3) - 2 = 10
4d6 - 2 ⇒ (4, 2, 6, 2) - 2 = 12
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (1, 4, 2, 4) - 1 = 10
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (6, 4, 4, 1) - 1 = 14
4d6 - 4 ⇒ (4, 5, 4, 5) - 4 = 14
4d6 - 1 ⇒ (1, 3, 6, 4) - 1 = 13

Hmm. I gotta run. Will analyze and decide when I get back. First impression: that blows lemmings.

Up at 4 this morning because the carnitas have been simmering gently all night and now smell amazing!

I'm apartment- and dog-sitting for vacationing friends, so I invited my housemates over for dinner tonight. I miss them. Wish they could bring my puppies, too. It's nice staying at somebody else's house. We can really trash this place.

Menu (all homemade):
Carnitas with sauteed onions and peppers with flour tortillas
Spanish rice
Refried beans
Sour cream, avocado, fresh veggies on the side for nibbling/garnish

I hope they take me seriously and bring sangria, because I don't have to drive.

Dessert:
I found a Cold Stone Creamery nearby and am considering one of their mini-cakes. Nom.

I work out and weigh in at the gym at noon today, so dinner will be a free-for-all. Woo!
