08:12 am This week's reading remains a bit less than previous, but it was enjoyable for the most part.
First was a graphic novel/non-fiction piece called Rise of the Dungeon Master: Gary Gygax and the Creation of D&D. It deals with the invention of, and the subsequent battles over the game Dungeons & Dragons in a comic book style. Not bad at all.
The next book I finished reading was Earth, Air, Fire and Custard, a comic fantasy novel by the British author Tom Holt. This carries forward from the previous couple of novels about the magical corporation in Britain in a rather strange and somewhat offputting fashion. For me the book was a bit of a hard slog compared to other novels this gentleman has written. I'll be picking up and starting another of his novels moderately soon, but if it's this hard to get into, I may dump it quickly.
Finally, Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey was recommended to me years ago; the tale of a wizard who'd been transported to Hell alive and managed to return for his vengeance. Fast and fun read. There's several more books in this saga and I'll be looking to read the second one soon.
