I have made a few changes to the blog, not least of which is the title and overall theme. I am very new to this blogging thing, and while all the "How To's" on blogging say to be very specific in your blog content, I say "Arrrrgh! Over the side with this foul barnacle called specificity!"

I often talk like a pirate when I feel strongly about something.

So all I have to mention right now is what I am reading. I have found myself beholden to several books, most of which can be found on my Amazon Kindle, a lovely device that is dear to my heart. I am reading the first installment of Steampunk Tales (so far the best story is a tale of Victorian space-age radicalism by Catherynne M. Valente, entitled "The Anachronist's Cookbook"), Alexei Panshin's New Celebrations: The Adventures of Anthony Villiers (hard to categorize SF), and China Mieville's new novel, Kraken (which seems more like a Neil Gaiman/Tim Powers lovechild, not necessarily a bad thing). My non-electronic reading is limited to the second novel in Stephen Hunt's Kingdom of Jackals series, The Kingdom Beyond the Waves.

The Lemur will most likely be along sooner or later with his considered opinion on the above codices. Until then, the Lemur bids you farewell.
