Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Finished The Lord of Castle Black, by Steven Brust, today while sitting endlessly on hold while nursing home staff who paged me thirty seconds before returned from taking a smoke break!!! I really can't believe how much of this book I managed to read while waiting for things to happen while oncall this weekend...anyway, the book is a followup to The Paths of the Dead which is a followup to Five Hundred Years After, which is a followup to The Phoenix Guards.....which all are prequels to the many books of the Jhereg series. The style of speech remains that mildly irritating type that has been noted in the previous books, but doesn't seem as stilted, and seems to flow better (I think that Brust is getting better at using it, and to better purpose.) I enjoyed the read very much, and I can't wait to see how the next book comes out.

As to work: Damn, it's hot out here....
