Weekly Journal March 28 April – 3 2011

Hello,

I like having a lot on my plate and I did this week, mostly work related though I finished three books, wrote a review and watched some tv too.

View From the Imperium was a delight to read. It was pitched as a ‘Jeeves of the spaceways’ and it delivered. I laughed out loud to the amusement of my closest a number of times during the read. I especially liked when our protagonist was chewed down by his superior, one of the comments there had me laughing for a long while. Dead Drop was also on the fun side. This promising debut by Sean Allen was an entertaining space opera rump i hope to tell you more about next week.

Kind regards and remember I am always open to suggestions.
