Re: Books

I'm on Parker #3, The Outfit, and showing no signs of slowing down. Been reading Dictionary of the Khazars at bedtime, which is appropriate since it's more like a dream than a traditional novel. Got turned on to it, actually, by Robin D. Laws's blurb for King of Sartar . I am a big fan of non-tradit...

Re: Books

Peter Watts is my favorite philosopher. I actually can't get enough of his bleakness. I think he and R. Scott Bakker should do a book together; it would be "fun". Neuropath was Watts-like, although (don't tell Scott I said this) not as well written. Echopraxia did feel pretty Gibon-like in tone, but...

Re: Review: Twilight Struggle (for PC/Mac)

Yeah, like, if a player played that one card that among other effects lowered Defcon by one, but forgot about that part and played it for a coup in a battleground country when Defcon was already at 3, that would be super dumb.
