Good morning. March is here.

Hope you guys had a good weekend. I spent Saturday at a LAN party until around midnight and had a good time. Then Sunday I never got around to hooking my PC back up to check my email or post on the blog. Instead I spent the day laying around with the wife watching movies and reading American Gods. My tower is still sitting out here in the living room probably wondering why I’m neglecting it. So if you’ve sent me an email and I’ve not answered yet, you know why. It’s also why I’ve not kept up with the dozens of replies the site has been getting lately.

Anyway, hope you guys had a nice weekend as well. I wish it were longer as I could use a couple more hours of sleep, but I’m headed off to work.

  1. If you like American Gods, try reading Good Omens also written by Neil Gaiman and also Terry Pratchett.

  2. I’ve read Good Omens, but thanks for the suggestion just the same. I enjoyed it quite a bit and I’m hoping the movie version of it they’re supposedly working on will turn out OK.

  3. Did your Mom give you the copy of American Gods.  When she posted about it on her site I suggested she passed it on to you seeing as it’s on your wishlist.  It’s one of my favourite books, I also enjoyed Good Omens, but not as much, but when I tried Smoke and Mirrors it couldn’t hold my attention.  Have you read Scepticism Inc. by Bo Fowler?

  4. Just saw your post on Mommas’s Corner.  Anyway seems she got her copy from the local library.  At a recent signing/talk session at our local bookshop the author Jasper Fforde was pretty disparaging about books appearing in electronic formats due to the risk of piracy.  I tried to point out that piracy is not always a bad thing saleswise as the first Harry Potter book being widely pirated on the newton did a lot for it’s popularity and the CD pirating of playstation games extended the life of that console far beyond most of it’s peers, but he was having none of it.  He did take note however when I pointed out that Victorian authors may well have viewed the public libraries as the Napster of their time.

    Oops managed to slip in two links to my book blog in one day - do I rate as a comment spammer now?

  5. DaveR, nope I haven’t read Scepticism Inc. yet, but I’ll have to check it out. I’m at the tail-end of American Gods at the moment and have started in on Carl Sagan’s The Demon Haunted World and Voodoo Science.

    And no problem linking back to your own blog twice in one day. Your links are informative compared to the average comment spammer.
