Bit of a departure from my usual reading but totally gripped.

Can't recommend more for anyone fancying a spot of non-fiction.

Just began Aaron Dembski-Bowden's apparently magnum opus The Night Lords trilogy omnibus having just finally finished the second Ciaphas Cain omnibus which was just excellent and fun from start to finish. The first story is good so far, ADB is quite talented, although I feel he's a bit overrated especially after the overly purple prosey, boring and preachy Master of Mankind. But that was his latest novel which I think the problems of that novel was a by product of his hubris, I think. Not a big fan of him as a person, either. But gotta separate the art from the artist.

I’m reading a “Wrinkle in time” (written by Madeleine L'Engle) since there’s a new movie out about it, and I’ve never read/watched it before.

Nah, now I think about it I really don't dislike him. Just disagree with his rather...I won't say extreme by...far politics. Although I swear his main character to his Talon of Horus book, Kauyon, has a heap and heap of similarities to my Attelus Kaltos character in Secret War. But that could be a coincidence.

Do you mean in real-life terms or in Warhammer terms? Sorry, just curious. A friend of mine is really good pals with him and his wife.
