While eating lunch, yesterday, I finished reading an ARC of an upcoming David Weber novel, A Call to Duty. Set in the Honor Harrington Universe, long before the birth of said protagonist, it deals with the early years of the Manticorian space fleet, and its response to piracy. I thought it was a very good read. I look forward to more books following this one's path.

Late last night, before falling asleep, I finished reading another graphic novel, this one being Before Watchmen: Comedian * Rorschach. I didn't find this one as interesting; in fact I found the portions devoted to The Comedian downright uncomfortable, but one could argue that this was in character for these two. In any case, this book continues the theme of looking at the origins of the Watchmen saga.

Timothy Zahn is almost painful to read when he's creating his own universes, but put him in a well defined universe like the Honorverse or Star Wars and he really shines.

I believe they have atleast 2 more books planned in the series, and its supposed to go up to the discovery of the Junction.

The latter information is clear from the last chapter of the book...

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