Currently reading David Wingrove's third Chung Kuo book for review. Great stuff: glad to be back. Complex plotting, good range of characters.
Review for this week will be Christopher Fowler's The Water Room, which I loved. Bryant and May are great. Surprised how much I love these books.
135+ new people got to view the film.
A Five Minute Preview for I, Creator - The Series

Many of the vengeful flashes
Well, we got another 5 star review for Katarina the Dragonslayer and the Foebreaker's Curse!
"What can I say about this book but WOW! I was immensely impressed with this fantastic story and I do not read a lot of fantasy. This book reminded me of LOTR or Narnia. If you are a lover of the fantasy genre then you will become an instant fan of Sam Medina." - The Kindle Book Review

I took a week off work this week with my fiancee.
Drove up the coast of Sydney, 5 hour drive to see his parents.
Unfortunately I had to pass by these signs which triggered some painful memories from my past.
Sadly it's unavoidable, I do accept it.
Today I was back home and we had to go to my work to do a little shopping.
I was talking with some of my workmates.
One who mentioned I look happy,that I am always happy.
Tonight I thought about
