Reading Update
Ghost of a Chance (Ghost Finders #1) by Simon R Green. Made it to page 66, then put it down for a few weeks and have no interest in going back to it. Elspeth’s review nails it.
The Atrocity Archives (The Laundry Files #1) by Charles Stross. Good paranormal thriller about Bob Howard, a guy who works for a secret British intelligence agency, the Laundry, in a world where mathematics can open portals to other, far less friendly, universes. Inspired by HP Lovecraft and the Cold War-era British spy thrillers (and acknowledges such). This edition also contains The Concrete Jungle [The Laundry Files #1.5].
The Jennifer Morgue (The Laundry Files #2) by Charles Stross. Good paranormal thriller as Bob teams up with a partner from another secret agency and is caught up in a very specific hero archetype geas… This edition also contained the short story PIMPF, which I’d subtitle Bob Gets an Intern and Almost Lets Said Intern Die…Whoops. (Because of the book’s title, I had “27 Jennifers” by Mike Doughty stuck in my head for a few days.)
The Fuller Memorandum (The Laundry Files #3) by Charles Stross. Good paranormal thriller, leaning toward horror as Bob learns an awful lot about his boss after his boss goes missing. And then he has to deal with fanatical Elder Gods’ cultists, leading to Bob’s Very Bad, No Good, Completely Horrific Day.
The Apocalypse Codex (The Laundry Files #4) by Charles Stross. Good paranormal horror thriller in which Bob, our computational demonologist, heads to America to check out an evangelist who’s taken an interest in the British Prime Minister.
Hockey Confidential: Inside Stories from People Inside the Game by Bob McKenzie. Good collection of true stories about an assortment of Canadians related in some way to the NHL, from Karl Subban (PK’s dad) to Connor McDavid to a skating coach.

  1. Did you sleep through Christmas, Mayhem?
    Chris, Pamela’s cake was delicious! So was the dark chocolate Hershey’s icing with peppermint extract (that I added) and candy cane sprinkles . It was a holiday hit!

  2. What, no San Jose Sharks “Holiday Sweater” video? It’s my favorite of theirs since 2010. (Forward Matt Nieto might have written the rap, since he always talks about being Snoop Dogg’s former neighbor and I guess he recorded some post-game victory rap they used to play in the locker room last year.) The broadcasters really make the whole thing, if you ask me. Here it is:

  3. Sorry I missed sending Christmas greetings, I’ve been the bad kind of busy over at Mom’s in the Land Of No Computing. Very Best Wishes for the Very Best New Year!
