Weekly Journal January 31 – February 6

I have been shamelessly programming during the nights this week too while listening to Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s first Fae book The Sacriface. What a delightful high fantasy novel about a Fae invasion that doesn’t exactly go right. I think I will have to get book two.

I also took delight in Embedded by Dan Abnett. It is about a journalist embedded in a soldiers mind during a battle on a distant planet. Then the soldier takes a bullet just under his eye effectively killing his mind and the journalist has to take over and ‘walk’ the guy back. Dan is new to me so it was a double bonus for me.

This was turn of the month so I also did the usual monthly posts  Cybermage’s Monthly Journal January 2011 and New SFF Books February 2011 [My Picks] Revisited.

Next Week

Reviews of Yarn by Jon Armstrong and Money Shot (Netherworld Trilogy book 3) by Christopher Rowley reviews are expected.

TV-wise BBC’s new show Outsourced premieres this week. It is about outcasts and refugees from Earth try to make a life for themselves on a new planet.  The Listener, a Canadian show about a telepathic paramedic returns to CTV after a one year hiatus this week and Human Target season 2 finale is this week. None genre wise I am looking forward to the return of Justified (FX) and Raising Hope (Fox).
