Yesterday I finished Becky Chambers' Record of a Spaceborn Few. It wasn't as tightly focused in terms of plot and characters as the other two books in her universe were. Yet it was still an intriguing exploration of the culture she's created. I did like how she tied the lives of the characters she introduces together. I hope she writes more in this universe.

Pondering what I want to read next...

Finished The Emperor's Codes: The Thrilling Story of the Allied Code Breakers Who Turned the Tide of World War II by Michael Smith.

First off, I wouldn't call it thrilling. Yes, it was a very interesting read, but there were few if any thrills involved here. I did like this book as a kind of companion to The Woman Who Smashed Codes... this one tells the British side of the story, and fills in some blanks the American versions of the War do not tell (or admit). It also brings a little more insight into how some of the higher-level codes worked and how they were cracked.

Fascinating stuff, not for everyone; like many things I read, heh.

Edit: also finished listening to The Two Towers (Audio) by J. R. R. Tolkien as narrated by Robert Inglis. On to The Return of the King. I am reading John Scalzi's The Last Colony.

I'm now re-reading my way through the Shanna Lauffey Time Shifters series in anticipation of the ninth book coming out soon. This is one series that gets progressively better!

I'm currently reading Rashomon Gate by I J Parker and also Asimov's SF Magazine for Nov/Dec 2018.
Rashomon Gate was excellent. Mediaeval Japan mysteries. I'm keen to get the first one in the series now, and to read the rest. When they're on a good offer, anyway.

I've also now read The Hanging Tree by Ben Aaronovitch which was a splendid continuation of the series. Wonderful modern urban fantasy mixed with a police procedural.

And I've finished Georgia on my Mind and Other Places by Charles Sheffield. Which was OK, but I think I prefer his longer works.

Still reading Asimov's. I got a bit distracted by the two above.

Finished The Last Colony by John Scalzi. I don't know I am not more eager to read his stuff-- each book I've read has been good, engaging, etc, but for some unknown reason Scalzi is just not on my go-to short-list..

Anyway, read it, enjoyed it, got a couple more of his books in the TBR somewhere.

Meanwhile, I’ve begun reading Stirred by J. A. Konrath and Blake Crouch.

Just finished Uncompromising Honor by David Weber. It was way better than the previous few books and I'm not sure where things go from here. I look forward to it though.

Now on to Artemis by Andy Weir.

That's pretty much how I feel. I enjoy his books when I read them, but he's not on my short list and I don't get excited when he has a new one. Strange.

Just read Michael Connelly’s latest book, Dark Sacred Night and it was excellent. Give it five stars. And he hints at the end where the next book is going and I will preorder it just like I did this one!

Next up, the new Lee Child book; Past Tense.

Just started Yuval's Sapiens.

Coming from a total different perspective about this issue, it sure starting out as a 'brow raiser' and 'eye-twinkling' kind of experience so far.
