Weekly Journal 2-8 January 2012

Happy continuation of the new year,

This week has been blissful. It took a fortnight to reach the optimum holiday relaxation but it was well worth it. Now I long to return to work.

James Alan Gardner‘s League of Peoples series has been a wonderful acquaintance. It takes place in a universe dominated by highly advanced alien species.  With strong female protagonists like Festima Ramos and Oar.

Best new release was Brett Patton‘s debut Mecha Corps. It is a promising new military science series with features from Transformers and the Mech Warrior universe.
