    Just finished Cibola Burn, the 5th book in The Expanse series. It was excellent, and I have the others waiting in the wings as well.

    I'm taking a short break and finishing Full Throttle before moving onto Babylon's Ashes (the 6th Expanse book). So far it's also quite good!

    Never read THE EXPANSE, but I tried watching the TV show based on it. Couldn't get past the first half of the first episode. I hope the novels(s) are better. How would you compare the two? Of course, I was kind of depressed then, since my dog had just died at that time. Maybe I should try again.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    Absolutely loved On Writing as well. Read it a couple of times. Feels like it may be the closest we get to an autobiography as well?

    Cibola is the 4th book. Nemesis gates is 5. Did you flip the 2?

    So I flubbed the book number, you're absolutely right. But it looks like we were both wrong, lol. Nemesis Games is 5th, which was the one I just finished - I've moved onto 6 now, which is Babylon's Ashes.

    I also loved ON WRITING, which is weird because it's non-fiction. Well, maybe not so weird after all.

    Thanks for the info on THE EXPANSE series, sounds intriguing.

    Didn't Peter Weir do the movie version of DISAPPEARANCE AT DEVIL'S ROCK? I'm too tired to look it up right now! Good night!

    Picnic at Hanging Rock, Steve. He has not done a movie in a while. Remember seeing Witness in the theater when I was a kid.

    Oh yeah, my mistake. The ants made the picnic baskets all disappear. It's all coming back to me now!

    I'm recovering from the one-two brain punch courtesy of T.E.D. Klein and Philip K. Dick so I started Urban Gothic by Brian Keene. Roughly 20 pages in and someone got brained with a hammer. His writing is fairly utilitarian, the story moves at a swift pace (characterization, who needs it) and right now, that's exactly what I need.

    Just finished Gwendy's Magic Feather. A fast and moderately entertaining read. Chizmar was certainly channeling his inner SK political leanings with the President Hamlin/Donald Trump character. Not sure what the point was other than an opportunity to inject an unnecessary rant. I also wasn't enamored with the recycled SK Castle Rock twist taken to resolve the abduction/murder mystery.

    I read Elantris by Sanderson and I thought it was great. I've flirted with the idea many times of starting Way of Kings but the sad reality is that I'm terrible at finishing novels these days, let alone a lore-rich fantasy series.

    I am currently reading the JULY/AUGUST 2019 issue of 'The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction'. Way back in the early 70s, during my one year of college, I spent most of my time in the library reading the hardcover collections of the best of the magazine, enjoying over 90% of the stories. Consequently, that was my only year of college. I'm fairly certain the first issue I bought off the newsstand was the October 1972 issue, and have since collected at least one copy of every issue from the first (Fall 1949, 'The Magazine of Fantasy', the 2nd issue underwent a name change) to the last of 2019 (NOVEMBER/DECEMBER issue). Up until maybe six years ago (just an estimate, it's probably longer), I continued to enjoy somewhere between 80% and 90% of the stories, and then experienced a sharp drop-off, enjoying barely 10% to 20% of them. It seems almost every story now has to do with gender orientation or social media or tech, which in itself is not a bad thing, I just find most of these stories uninteresting to the point of unreadability, although I still struggle through them. I guess that's just the way it is nowadays, but I miss the 'older' sorts of stories. If this makes me out of date, then, I guess, so be it. Every once in a while though, they do publish an outstanding story, and I'm not giving up yet!

    Yes it is. I don't think I would have actively sought it out but getting the beautiful Suntup AGE made me move it to the front of my to read list.
