Rambling Robots from Rivendale

Yes. I too can make up random titles for posts.

Anyways, it's another Monday morning, and I'm once more well on my way to happy land of being a productive member of the SF-blog arena. I've purchased a number of books recently, and am consuming the things as quickly as possible. In the next few days I should have my review of His Majesty's Dragon up, which is Naomi Novik's debut novel, as well as the first in the Tremaire series. Beyond that, I have now purchased the new Star Wars: Death Star novel, and the Stephen King novel, Cell; which if the dust-jacket blurb can be believed is basically a zombie novel. And I love my zombies.

Other news invovled my youngest boy's birthday party on Saturday. Amusingly enough, my elder son gave my younger one a lightsaber. Believe it or not, I had nothing to do with it either. He was out shopping with my Mother-in-law and picked the saber as a gift out himself.

Anyways, AniMonday tonight is going to feature a couple of episodes of Tactics and an hour of the movie Dead Leaves. Dead Leaves is from the same folks that brought us FLCL, so it promises to be surreal beyond belief. But that's all right.

In new series news, Sky Girls has stumbled into episode 18 recently. I had originally thought that this was a 13 episode series, and have thus been proven unalterably wrong on that account. But that's okay, because this is a fun series. After that, Dragonauts: The Resonance, ef-A Tale of Memories, Clannad and Bamboo Blade are all the series that I'm following this season.

And I've also purchased volume 2 of Melancholy.

Finally, if anyone has missed it, my review of Hal Spacejock is up and happily getting referenced across the web. It's an interesting and eclectic bunch that have linked. Mr. Haynes (the author) has linked, but there there were things such as a poker blog and a get-out-of-debt blog as well. I know, that appears to be shameless plugging, but hey, I love it when I have such direct results to a blog entry; it allows me to know that folks are actually reading. Gives me warm fuzzies and all.

Well, that's it for this episode of Monday Morning Rambling, tune in next week, as we discuss... well, at the moment, I have no idea. But I'm sure it'll be interesting to me at least.
