Everything cultural, pop or otherwise. Books, movies, music, comics, poetry, random cultural geekery.

The major complaint in the Amazon reviews seems to be that most of the story in this book is back-room and back-channel intrigue and politics, as well as espionage and other forms of skulduggery,
So apparently they've never read any of David Weber's other stuff?
Speaking of which, the E-ARC of "Uncompromising Honor" is up on Baen's web site. I'm about a third of the way through it now. :ugeek:

Finished Alliance Of Shadows on a flight today. Started Angeleyes by Mad Mike... It started off kind of slow, and then I thought I was reading Ringo there for a minute... :shock:

Yeah, the main character is kind of a whore, sleeps her way around space. But eventually she hooks up with a Grainne military ship, so she's doing it for patriotic reasons. And when I say she hooks up with the ship, she literally hooks up with a significant percentage of the crew while she is aboard.

Working my way through Ringo's Posleen series. Just finished Gust Front.
Note to self: start reading sig lines. They're actually quite amusing. :D
