Okay, so, in the interest of keeping things all updated and everything on here, since last we spoke, I’ve gotten some neat reviews, some walks beside the Thames, achieved a lunar landing with a slide rule and logarithm table, and stood in a queue for two and a half hours.
Firstly on the reviews front, the two short story bundles I released a few months back – War Dog & Marginalized Populations and Jane, Jill and Jasie – have gotten some reviews. First, for J, J & J via Flayrah, and a review covering both works from the newly launched Claw and Quill.
Second, there have been a smattering of reviews at the storefronts for both bundles, and on Goodreads – those are really helpful, all the guides on how 2 sell bookz tell me, so thank yous all around, and if you’re a happy reader, please do go back and leave a short review where you purchased things from. (Also, you can find me on Goodreads here.)
Getting away from the reviews, the number of tourists who are utterly gobsmacked to discover there’s footpaths under the Thames at Greenwich is adorable, the muddy banks are lovely as always, and for some reason earlier this week some children were writing something about Slovenians in the sand I suspect was either nationalist propaganda or good ol’-fashioned racism. Either way, I tried not to look. Oh, and I went down to the MCM London Comic Con thing, where I discovered that my phone has a tendency to die in the ExCeL centre, like, flat out fall into a helpless cycle of booting, that carrying a kindle around to read stuff is extremely important when queuing for day tickets (it took two and a half hours, seriously – the convention was too crowded to be interesting to a random wander-around-on-your-own type like myself as a result), and that Homestuck is SUPER POPULAR. (Kyell Gold would be happy to know there was a dedicated Homestuck photo session just for the trolls.)
Wait. We missed one. Wait, Lunar Landing, what? Oh. You have heard of Kerbal Space Program, right?
I own a few slide rules. I looked up the relevant math, did it all by hand, and then this happened. Doing all the math with 50s/60s era computational technology has been a life-long goal, achieved at last. My crowning glory for October. … Don’t judge me!
