Weekly Journal February 28 – March 6

Another week bites the dust and I have read or listened to quite a few books this week besides making the monthly posts.

David Winegrove’s ‘new’ series Chung Kuo is probably the one I enjoyed most. Stephen King is getting a bit tedious after four Dark Tower books in a row. I think I will take a pause in listening to them.

Last week was -30 degrees cold desolation, this week has been almost 40 degrees warmer and the melting snow has put a damp on everything making it easy to stay inside and read (like I need an excuse for that)

My Top Military Science Fiction Series MkII contains 34 series or universes of interesting military scifi.
