Weekly Journal January 24-30

I have been programming most of the week and happiness is indeed sometimes to read a sensor so I have mainly been listening to books this week and finished two good ones.

Nathan Lowell finished his series of workday science fiction this week with the last few podcasts of Owner’s Share. It have given me many happy hours of listening and endearing characters that will stay with me a long time. The cover is not great but that is the only thing that isn’t. I hope to see Ishmael Wang again even if the Share series is over.

The Skinner was also a great book but of a more gruesome and gory kind. I love Neal Asher’s writing and this first Splatterjay novel delivers. I have all three in my to read pile. I plan to read the remaining soon.

I also got some exciting new review copies from Angry Robot that is shouting my name so without further ado, Tada!
