A few more days, a few more books.

First of all, I read what I guess wasn't so much a book as a short story by Larry Niven called A Relic of Empire which dabbled in his Known Space series of stories; not bad.

Next was The Great Revolt by Paul Doherty which was a mystery set in Medieval London. These books are fairly formulaic, but what I enjoy about them is how well he does the setting. Again, not bad.

Then there was Osprey Raid #31: Gothic Serpent: Black Hawk Down Mogadishu 1993, the event that led to the movie Black Hawk Down. Considering how short these Ospreys are, they did a good job of going in depth to set up the political climate locally so as to better understand how it all happened. Pretty solid read, recommended.

Finally, I had seen a recommendation online for a book called Torchship by Karl K. Gallagher. In a positive way, it's like reading a Traveller adventure even if the tech situation isn't quite the same. It was a fun read and a quick one and there's apparently already a sequel which the book sets up nicely, so I need to get onto Amazon and order it. I found it a fun SF novel worth reading.

And so onto the next week!
