No time to post, but a little time here and there to let me finish a couple more books this week.

First was The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension which is the novelization of the movie of the same name. The book touches on a number of things that were cut out of the film. The writing style is pompous; it's supposed to be written by Reno, one of Buckaroo's buddies. The book is mildly fun, but I much preferred the movie to it.

Next was Osprey Fortress #6: American Civil War Fortifications (1): Coastal Brick and Stone Forts, a topic of which I knew nothing. I guess it never occurred to me that the United States built these forts to defend against invaders from the sea...i.e. the British. There's a lot of detail here as often there is in the Osprey books. Not bad...
