(don't get me wrong, I love it, but I had to stare at the wikipedia page in stunned disbelief for a while first, and wanted to share)
Kinda proud of not chickening out. I mean, the train was right there! Excellent hangover prevention, too.
should probably finally write that blog post about my book site for 1000 books or something
also woo 1000 books soon
42/ Sixteen Ways to Defend a Walled City by K.J. Parker. Not quite as good as the title, but decent. Roman military engineering fanfiction, in a good-ish way.
41/ The Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bujold. Sadly, Bujold's Fantasy is not for me. I'll stick with the Vorkosigan saga.
"I don't mind the blood, I mind the stains"
40/ Harpist in the Wind by Patricia A. McKillip. Interesting conclusion to the trilogy. Not what I expected. Good stuff, and rewards attention to detail.
39/ Heir of Sea and Fire by Patricia A. McKillip. Good second part of the series – unconventional, as it makes the first protagonist's fiancée the new protagonist.
38/ The Riddle-Master of Hed by Patricia A. McKillip. Unconventional fantasy, reminded me of Earthsea. Glad I read it despite the oddly distanced storytelling.
37/ The Door into Sunset by Diane Duane. The weakest part of the Door Into series, leaving us hanging without a real end.
36/ A Desolation Called Peace by Arkady Martine. As good as the first part, in different ways. Still sci-fi focused on culture and language, and I want more.
The Datenobservatorium might be gone, but our pride svg generator still exists, complete with fully customizable colors, ratios, wavy paths, transforms and masks! https://pride-gen.datenobservatorium.de/
35/ A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine. Excellent scifi including technology and language and culture (so much language and culture). Loved it even more on the re-read.
