I couldn’t help but find a certain amount of amusement at the mailman’s expense this week and believe it or not it was not my fault. I’m not really sure what happened but the mailman had difficulty with the neighbor’s mail. At one point he was struggling to pack everything into their box, wrote some sort of note, and finally decided to carry some of the mail to their front door. In the process of handing them some of their mail, the neighbor’s dog escaped and ran into a busy street. Near chaos ensued! In time the dog was rescued unharmed, the neighbors collected all of their mail, and I now understand why the Post Office is in the red.
One good thing is that I am not the only person on this block that is on the mailman’s shit list!
Thank you PYR for a copy of the book “Be My Enemy” by Ian McDonald.
Everett Singh has escaped with the Infundibulum from the clutches of Charlotte Villiers and the Order, but at a terrible price. His father is missing, banished to one of the billions of parallel universes of the Panoply of All Worlds, and Everett and the crew of the airship Everness have taken a wild Heisenberg jump to a random parallel plane. Everett is smart and resourceful, and from the refuge of a desolate frozen Earth far beyond the Plenitude, where he and his friends have gone into hiding, he makes plans to rescue his family. But the villainous Charlotte Villiers is one step ahead of him. The action traverses three different parallel Earths: one is a frozen wasteland; one is just like ours, except that the alien Thryn Sentiency has occupied the Moon since 1964, sharing its technology with humankind; and one is the embargoed home of dead London, where the remnants of humanity battle a terrifying nanotechnology run wild. Across these parallel planes of existence, Everett faces terrible choices of morality and power. But he has the love and support of Sen, Captain Anastasia Sixsmyth, and the rest of the crew of Everness as he learns that the deadliest enemy isn’t the Order or the world-devouring nanotech Nahn—it’s himself.
In addition to that, I received a cool card game by Mythos Labs called “You Are The Maniac!” (link). It is a Horror Movie themed card game. I’ll play around with it and let you know what I think.
Gotta run the game is back on!
