24 July 2020 - Friday
Yay, it's Friday. I tried to do a thing for work and didn't do a very
good job, but it sort of got done.
- Houses Under The Sea (Caitlín R Kiernan): A collection
of her more explicitly Lovecraftian short fiction. The ocean is really
- "Home" (Martha Wells): The short story supposedly only available in
the hardcover edition of Network Effect. (Insert shifty eyes
emoji here.) MurderBot takes such good care of its friends.
- The Fox's Tower and Other Tales (Yoon Ha Lee): Flash
fiction in the 1-2 page range, almost all fairytales, mostly not as grim
as the Hexarchate books.
- Ships of Smoke and Steel (Django Wexler): Is this
sufficiently advanced magic, or sufficiently advanced technology? It's
really hard to tell! The main character reforms awfully fast, but then,
she is hanging out with an awfully strange princess.
- Expanded Adventurer (Trevor Murray, Ben Rosenbloom):
Fourteen compendium classes for Dungeon World. Again, varying quality,
but one is based on Steven Universe, so I can't complain.
Salad lunch, microwave dinner.

Huh, I have the hardcover edition of Network Effect, and it does not contain that story! Fortunately we have pocket fronds.

I think it was something stupid like you had to enter your preorder number on the website and they'd send you the story as a PDF.
Artificially limiting distribution of stories makes me froth and hiss.
