I've definitely got travel fever. Which is fitting. Checked in online for the plane, washed the last clothes, just need to pack and sleep and then fly around the world. As you do.

I'll be skipping the next two weeks of reading memes, on account of being elsewhere.

What I've recently finished reading

Steve Kenson: Mutants & Masterminds 2nd ed.
Not enough world between the rules for my just-reading-not-actually-planning-on-playing tastes, but that's how it goes. It was amusing to see how many well known superheroes they referenced or copied without actually saying their names.

Mike Mignola: B.P.R.D.: The Black Goddess
Actual plot starts to reappear. Good.

Monster
Not the most engaging of anthologies, I'm afraid. It's not that the stories were bad, just - not amazing, mostly - and why is there always at least one or two stories in these things where the main character is a genre fiction writer? Anyway, my favourites were Luna Petersen's Thorolfs saga, a story about the vengeful dead set in the Viking Age, and Malou Shigebu's Bølgerne, where a mysterious, wild power destroys a tiny village.

Claus Høxbroe: Kongens København
Pretty wannabee Dan Turell, these poems. I mean, they're not bad, but very wannabee.

Robert Kirkman: The Walking Dead: The Whisperer War
I wonder how long he's going to keep this series going.

What I'm reading now

Seeing Fans: Representations of Fandom in Media and Popular Culture - which I probably won't have time to finish before leaving.

What I'm reading next

I'm packing a couple of books for reading on my way to the airport and on the plane (though I do hope to get some sleep during the longer night stretch, and Emirates has entertainment systems - *reads through offerings* - hmmm. Anybody got opinions about Legion?). Bujold's Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen for sure, and one or two others. And I've downloaded the Overdrive app, so if there's going to be any more reading happening, it'll be whatever I can find there. Or fanfic.

Total number of books and comics read this year: 135
