I’m a bit better now. Being sick last week kicked my behind. And working all weekend was not restful. So life has been a wee tiny bit crazy here.
But I picked up Naomi Novik’s novels, His Majesty’s Dragon, Throne of Jade, and Black Powder War. I’ve finished His Majesty’s Dragon. I see why it was nominated for the Hugo. It’s a nice cross between Patrick O’Brien and Anne McCaffrey. DH says not Patrick O’Brien, but Alexander Kent. It was a fun read, and a fast one. Check it out if you get a chance.
