Murder in Absentia by Assaph Mehr

I just finished this book and I’d like to recommend it.

A most excellent detective story set in a roman alternative world. The characters are quite engaging and the description of the roman city, Egretia, quite detailed, so detailed you feel you are really living in it. I really enjoyed the entire story !

A perfect bookfair to prepare for summer

I want to recommend this bookfair.

  1. because I am in it 🙂
  2. because there are awesome authors in there !

In summer, for my part, I increase my reading. This year (of all years) I go and sit outside for  a quiet read with open sky above me.

Book review : An unexpected surprise

NPC by terry Hayes

1) If you are not a tabletop player, I wouldn’t recommend this book. It’s targeted at people who have rolled dices 🙂
2) this is quite a nice read. good story well told. I enjoyed it a lot and up to the last chapters would have said I wouldn’t have listened to book 2. But then everything comes together in the end and I will listen to book 2. Definitely. Well done !
3) Good characters ! Excellent cast and development into the target classes. A lot of fun to read.
4) No, I would never play with the players portrayed here. But… stick with this sorry bunch of bad players …

Scifi is more than space battle

This is what Wesley Britton demonstrates in his book “the blind alien”. Behind the plot and the characters, both interesting, I have been amazed by the level of details the author has put into his world. No space opera but an alternative Earth with its own problems and opportunities for our characters. A very interesting and thought provoking read!

A new video on how star are formed

I love this simulation from Illinois’s Northwestern University. I don’t know how we could use it in a book but … if I can find a way, I will 🙂

For your next job, expect heavy weather…

Sent on a mission to Jupiter? Watch out for the big red storm.

I see, you’re not a rookie, you know space, don’t you?

Really, you heard of the dust devils of Mars? Good.

But what about Neptune’s wind going faster than the speed of sound? And the diamond rain of Uranus? Are you really that ready for outer space? Will you take your space suit and travel?
