Die Vol. 4: Bleed | Kieron Gillen
post image
Pickpick

This nominee for the 2022 Hugo Best Graphic Story award is the 4th and final volume of the Die series. The story, which plays with RPG concepts, is not easy to follow. However, this final volume explains a number of things that had me mystified in the earlier books and provides a satisfactory conclusion.

The I Inside | Alan Dean Foster

Pickpick

99/150 I think Alan Dean Foster is underrated as a writer, too many think of him as the guy who writes movie adaptations, they don't know he writes really good original science-fiction too. This is part romance and part space opera. Eric Abbot sees Lisa Tambor and falls madly in love, the the world seems to want to keep them apart. When Eric tries to find out why, he exposes a conspiracy larger than he ever imagined. Continued in the comments ⬇️

RamsFan1963 It's a quick breezy adventure, that takes a lot of wild turns before the satisfying conclusion. 4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Before I go, I have to comment on the book cover. It is totally non- representative of the book's content, and looks like something out of a very bad 70s sci-fi TV show. 2w

Andrew65 Looks good, well done 👏👏👏 2w
swynn Agree that Foster is much more than that novelizer guy. I loved the Pip/Flinx series in high school, and have been thinking of revisiting it to catch up 2w

It is not God, Martin Oristano reminded himself for the thousandth time as he approached the machine.

Between watching all available Mythic Quest last month and starting this book today I am getting a weirdly high level of MMO content. MMOs: games I am too anxious to play!

DrexEdit Oh I have this one checked out from the library. One of these days I will actually get to read it! I am looking forward to it. 1mo
khooliha @DrexEdit It's real weird so far! 1mo

I was really looking forward to this book but it fell flat. I had to squint to find the plot and when I thought I found it, turned out to be something else. There were several mini plots that never had a resolution. The title was misleading and had nothing to do with the story. Cas can see dead people but it‘s not explained and he doesn‘t use it. I skimmed through it just to finish and check it off my Popsugar challenge.

What a line!

"The cre of the Rosebud are, currently-- and by force of law--a balloon, a goth, some sort of science aristocrat possibly, a ball of hands, and a swarm I'd insects."

Fluffball dog + volume two of THE SCUM VILLAIN‘S SELF-SAVING SYSTEM. It took me a little while to sink back into the story, but I‘m there now and it‘s great. I don‘t think it‘ll take me very long to finish it, provided Casey gives me a break from my all-important dog-snuggling duties.
