Still aten’t dead…

Bloody hell. I hadn’t realised quite how long it had been since I’d written on here! I didn’t even do the obligatory end-of-year “wow, I haven’t written much on here this year, have I?” post…

Well, last year was the worst for my reading in probably a decade, which was partly a problem with me (changing schedules, etc), and partly a problem with the books I tried to read, and partly watching too much TV instead.

And while I’ve done some con-langing, it’s paradoxically been a bit too advanced to be suited to one-off blog posts. Similarly, I’ve had a couple of world-building projects that never got finished, but that felt too big to be worth posting as I went along, before I’d worked out the kinks.

On the positive side, I’m hoping to have three, maybe four book reviews up in the near future. And maybe a political-commentary post, even, though I never seem to get those finished before, you know, the world has moved on…

    Good to know. Guess there’s some Dark Tower in the future then 🙂

  2. King’s Dark Tower series? Not in the near future, no, although as it happens I am writing a review of a DIFFERENT post-apocalyptic fantasy-Western from the 80’s…

    Ok, it was just that the world moving on is a Dark Tower quote… Looking forward to whatever you choose to review

    Good to see you’re alive and (I hope) well!

    Did you ever get around to reviewing Shepherd’s Crown in your Discworld reread..?

  6. I did not, no! Or, theoretically: I have not yet, no!

    I don’t know why. I think it’s partly because I had some Issues with the worldview of the previous Tiffany novel; it’s partly because I had some Issues with the writing quality of the previous non-Tiffany novel; and it’s probably partly because I’m reluctant to read the last Discworld novel, because then there won’t be any left for me to read for the first time.
    I do still theoretically intend to, though.

  7. Hey. I’m trying to start a new blog, at, and one of the main categories I’d like to have on it is called “A Few Year Back” — each article in that category will explore (at least, roughly) a single year. I’ve already written one for 1979. Since you still aten’t dead, I was wondering if you might be interested in writing one yourself. Zero pressure, of course. But if you like the idea and want to do one, please do, I would be very grateful. And feel free to take liberties if you like — it doesn’t need to strictly be a single year, it could be months, a few years, whatever.
