I haven't had the energy to update, recently, but I HAVE finished reading several books.

First was Osprey Campaign #6: Balaclava 1854: The Charge of the Light Brigade; I've read other books on the subject, and honestly, this one was a quicker read with a pretty solid presentation of the whole campaign. It's worth a read, if you are interested in expanding your knowledge of the period.

Second was Ten Grand, the compilation of the first six issues of the comic written by J Michael Straczynski. I haven't been paying all that much attention to his work in comics, though I've liked it in the past. A friend sent me a list of his titles, but I still didn't pay close attention (fatigue?). Then a few days ago, I noticed the newest comic book's author, and immediately purchased it, the two most recent prior releases, and the graphic novel that filled in the rest. This is a story about the war between Heaven and Hell, and one of the men caught in the middle. I'd rather not describe it deeper than that. I've enjoyed it so far, though I haven't started the comic books yet.

Latest, I finished reading a Tom Holt novel, Falling Sideways. It's about clones. Sort of. I have to say that the last forty pages or so are rather muddled, and unsatisfying. I've liked much of this author's prior work, so I will be reading more of it in the future, but this book didn't gel for me as much as I might have hoped.
