Weekly Journal 30 January – 5 February 2012

I have programmed and watched tv series a lot this week. On my spare time that is, at work it is mostly management and research.

In the Lion’s Mouth by Michael Flynn is best read of the week. It is a fantastic space opera that feels like a Celtic saga. This is part three and the first one I read before listening to the audio book (I don’t think this one is out in audio yet). The steampunk adventures of Captain Cly in Ganymede was a close runner-up. Cherie Priest certainly has a flair for this kind of stories.

Fringe is just awesome at the moment. All this observer action is unprecedented. This weeks Astrid-centric episode with the read and blue teams working together is one of my favorites. Astrid is such a wonderful character and we finally get to know a bit of her background.
