The Harry Dresden books used to be great but now they’re a boring mess. The last book I read was Ghost Story it was maudlin, navel gazing crap it was so bad I never finished it and haven’t read another Dresden book since.
Mike (greatly enjoy File 770, btw), I don’t think I would read too much into that. I think any book sent to him from one of the large (and some of the small) SF imprints will be included in the picture, and I have not noticed any order to the books other than aesthetics and structural integrity.
Saint Patricks may be the next holiday for you! I happen to be a member of a two thousand year old world-girdling conspiracy who has tons and tons of feast days, even in the midst of Lent.
Today is the feast day of Blessed Luke Belludi.
Yesterday was the feast of Saint Polycarp, who, long before he was archbishop, was the child Jesus pulled onto his lap when he told the disciples to suffer little children to come unto him.
Oh, and today Feb 24th, is ALSO the feast day of
St. John Theristus
Bl. Tommaso Maria Fusco
And yesterday was ALSO the feast day for
St. Alexander Akimetes
St. Serenus the Gardener
St. Felix of Brescia
St. Lazarus Zographos
Martyrs of Sirmium
St. Polycarp of Smyrna
Bl. Daniel Brottier
Bl. Josephine Vannini
Bl. Rafaela Ybarra de Villalongo
If you remember the line from BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, where Eddy says that the Chinese have a lot of hells, it is like that. We have a lot of feasts.
On page 302 of the Baen hardback edition, you have Stricken tell Heather Kerkonnen that her curiosity could get her “… tossed into the incinerator…” Thisis reminiscent of Soviet GRU.
You may or may not know this, but the Soviet Union has conducted at least two judicial — not impromptu and impulsive acts of rage — executions (At least two known here in the West) by burning the victim alive in a crematorium, Pyotr Popov in December 1958 and Oleg Penkovskii 17 May 1963. (The GRU filmed the Penkovskii execution and used the film as an initiation document!)
The crimes of the Soviet Union should be publicised as widely as the crimes of the Hitler regime in Germany have been, and they should be as deeply remembered as the Holocaust.
Greetings Dear Larry, February is BLACK HISTORY MONTH. You could say that your NEW work is being released in HONOR of BLACK HISTORY MONTH. Just think of the unfathomable degree of butthurt that you will bestow upon the liberal terrorists that torment you with such a fiendishly clever statement, oh I am ever so droll…
I first heard your name in relation to the original Sad puppies slate, had no idea who you were, but i liked the cut of your fisk and gave monster hunters a try. Loved it. Loved Alpha, Loved Nemesis.I loved that you used the last two books to flesh out two of my favorite characters. Don’t get me wrong, I like the combat account, But the Redneck Werewolf?
Now thats my jam.
Anyway, Just wanted to say that I think nemesis was the best yet, and I cant wait to see whats coming down the pike for the boys from Cazador.
