Dead Dog Cat

Oh, my.

Last night, forestcats cooked up a dish of oxtail. I think I may have had oxtail soup, once, long ago, but this was a first, and it was luscious! Bones/broth/leftovers are being held to make stock, and I bet this'll be the best stock we've had since the duck stock...

I got my hands on, and read, three comic books:

Finally, they finished and published the last comic of Planetary by Warren Ellis (#27). It's been so long since the previous book, that this one just didn't gel for me. Too bad.

Then, there's a new Buckaroo Banzai: Hardest of the Hard #1. I'm not sure about this one, but I'll wait and see where it goes.

Lastly, there's North 40 #4. This series is Lovecraftian/red neck. This issue is mostly a zombie item...

Pratchett's new novel, Unseen Academicals was released Tuesday, for those of you who didn't know that. Go, thou, and enjoy!

So far, this week, I've finished reading two books.

First, was Osprey Elite #159: French Napoleonic Infantry Tactics 1792 - 1815, which I was reading for general interest, and it was generally interesting.

Then, there was Osprey Fortress #84: Chinese Walled Cities 221 BC - AD 1644 which has some very spectacular photography, as many of these walls still exist in China.

Overall, I find these Osprey releases to be chock full of information that stimulates my imagination. I'd recommend them to reinactors, gamers, or people with any interest in history.
