Still reading Penumbra. I like it, but then the style is typical of Eric Brown and it ticks all the boxes for me.
Also started Honor Among Enemies by David Weber, the 6th Honor Harrington book. I like the direction it's going, but I'm starting to wonder when he'll write a story where Honor doesn't start out in the worst possible position. I can see *why* he does it, but having all six books more or less have her coming from behind to save the day (which I'm guessing she'll do here again) is starting to grate a little with despite how much I enjoy the stories and prose.
