Dan 1, horde of marauding viruses 0.5

Yeah, sure, in the grand scheme of things, viruses just want to live and let live, man. Unfortunately for them, living involves brutally invading my body and wreaking havoc. Which, if you’re interested, is a surefire way to get me in a fightin’ mood.

So, I made mincemeat out of ’em. And now, i’m on the road to recovery. It is a winding road, and not at all scenic, thus offering plenty of time for reading!

So, as a sort of teaser, here’s what you can expect on danthology in the next week or so:

Books I finished and will soon review:

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

Arthas: Rise of the Lich King by Christie Golden (this might involve a digression or two…)

Books I’m currently reading:

Lonely Werewolf Girl by Martin Millar

Very Mercenary by Rayo Casablanca

Anathem by Neal Stephenson

Rats Saw God by Rob Thomas (who went on to make “Veronica Mars” the best TV show that you’ve probably never seen)

Also, I’ll try very hard to branch out and entertain you with the many ways I fail to work on my novel, plus my first ever rejection letter!

I just got my free copy of Zoe’s Tale yesterday, and per our agreement, I eagerly dove in.

Initial thoughts:

  • Since Zoe is my first experience with either Scalzi or the OMW universe, I like to think I’m coming at it with a fresh perspective, completely unburdened by any omg-it’s-the-same-story-as-The-Last-Colony-Scalzi’s-a-hack! drama
  • I like Zoe, even if i couldn’t stand to be around anyone that mouthy in real life.
  • I like the subtle digs at sci-fi tropes.
  • Um, I like it.

5 Points Review to come!
