Weekly Journal March 21-27 2011

Hello,

The time for daylight saving time is upon us (in Sweden at least). Please remember to set the time or you will be late tomorrow.

The highlights of my week was reading Elizabeth Moon’s Kings of the North. It was a warm but thrilling read about characters that feels like family by now. Up Against It by M. J. Locke was also very good if somewhat different. Reality tv has really changed the face of science fiction.

Things are starting to get a bit hectic at work so I am not sure how much I will be able to read or write next week but expect the usual monthly posts.

Kind regards and remember I am always open to suggestions.
