Last evening, I finished reading two books.

First was Scalzi's novel, Old Man's War, an SF item in which elderly folks are recruited for a new life defending Earth and its colonies from aliens. Rather well-done; I'm champing at the bit to load the sequel in my Ematic.

Second was Osprey Campaign #242: Metz 1944: Patton’s Fortified Nemesis, or, what happened when Patton hit the belt of fortifications that were built on the French-German frontier. The book clarified a time span that had been mulled over by a number of books I read in my teen years.

I rather liked Old Man's War. It was reminiscent of The Forever War a bit but it was a good book and the sequels are decent as well. Scalzi is a decent writer who tells a good story and has good characterizations overall.

I've already loaded The Ghost Brigades, so I'm looking forward to reading them all.

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco...
