Odd sometimes is a good thing :yes: After finishing a suspenseful but utterly forgettable mystery, I started The Blackhouse by Peter May and like it. Still early pages, though. :p

:oh:  If you like it, there are two more books in the trilogy, plus a gorgeous book he did with a photographer that documents the real settings in the fictional books.

Matt and I often read the same books, but he uses audible , and he has been trying me to read Thief of Time. I just did and it is amazing, so multi layered. I should have read it sooner.

it's so good! :yes: 

i've picked up on LeVar Burton's podcasts :oh:  once a week he reads a sci-fi short story ... i only discovered this Sunday, selected one at random off the playlist, "The Galactic Tourist Industrial Complex" by Tobias Buckell. Excellent, weird and funny  ...   then listened to "Shoggoths in Traffic" also by TB, excellent, weird and funny ---> in an eerie way :shock: 

he has a fine voice.

oh my time has been kind to Geordi La Forge  :swoon:

Podcasts are the new thing, aren't they? Over here, too. I am in two minds about them - I have tried several, and some of them had music underlaid so I couldn't really understand it. Some other were really cool.
