I finished Gene Wolfe’s Home Fires last light, and I am still trying to figure out what the hell I just read. It was sort of a noir-ish Agatha Christie-ish mystery, where no one has the inclination to trust anyone for anything. Mostly.
My body woke me up about an hour before my alarm went off this morning, and I happily lay in bed going over the beginning of Home Fires again and again, trying to figure out which important bits I glossed right over. The plan is to re-read the first 100 pages or so today, with hopes of a few “a-ha!” moments.
So, no review today, I haven’t even started writing it yet.
I found some fun internetty stuff for you instead.
Check out this brilliant Art of the Game comic at Patrick Rothfuss’s Blog. Then bookmark his site and add his blog to your reader(s).
And speaking of Patrick Rothfuss, if you have no idea who he is, but his blog got your attention, join The Name of the Wind reading group over on Fantasy Faction.
The absolute awesomeness that is Guillermo del Toro. This guy scares the crap out of me, and I love him for it.

China Mieville has a webcomic?? the newest images are at the top, so remember to scroll down.
LEC reviews Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch . I SO want to read this book, and is that not some snazzy cover art?
