What did I miss??

Since I haven't been reading blogs lately I completely missed Ming's adventure on the sick side of life (you looked so normal in the halls), Denise's switch to a much better blogging system (now I can comment on your blog), and Julie's consistently on-fire posts skewering our nation's greatest contemporary absurdity, the Republican Party (and their legions of minions).

These are just a few of the many things I've missed. Well, hopefully I'm back to regular blogging and blog-reading now, so I cleaned up (some) of my links, including my "current reading" link to Robin Hobb's "Ship of Destiny," the last of the Liveship Traders trilogy. So far the series has been better than her Assassin series, but God woman, how much more effort would it take to come up with better titles??? Did your publisher insist on "Ship of Magic" and "Ship of Destiny," or is your creativity completely exhausted by the words inside your covers? Those have to be two of the worst titles of anything currently in print.

I swear, if George R. R. Martin hadn't recommended you, your titles would have scared me off permanently.

I couldn't get through Mad Ship, and surprised myself. Usually I'll finish a book just out of spite. That one I had to leave behind. Sadly, despite barrels of books descending upon me from my has-more-free-time brother, I haven't been really spellbound by a SF/fantasy series in while (not counting, of course, Martin's Song of Fire and Ice).
